Kyle Kuzma Knows His Way Around a Really (Really) Nice Watch

If you've been tuning in to "Curated," our video series where we chop it up with some of the best-dressed celebrities in the world, it should come as little surprise that we'd eventually find our way to Kyle Kuzma. (If you haven't been watching, hit that like and subscribe button, baby! Help your boy chase that YouTube paper.) Kuz, the versatile Lakers phenom, has been one of the NBA's most stylish young stars since 2017 and an avid watch enthusiast for about as long. So it seems only right that in the latest episode of our series he walk us through a few select pieces from his enviable collection, live from his home in L.A. and a few weeks before the NBA season is officially scheduled to restart.

And boy does he deliver. Throughout the conversation, Kuzma touts the appeal of watches as a wise investment—given their tendency to appreciate in value the longer you hold on to 'em—all while effortlessly name-dropping more brands than a typical Lil Uzi verse. And though he might be a savvy investor, Kuz still takes a pretty zen approach to collecting, hence his blissed-out reaction to a one-of-one Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore, or a Patek Philippe Nautilus so nice he can't help but stop and admire it for a looong moment every time he takes it out.

If you're thirsty for more NBA-related style news, Kuz was also recently spotted wearing J. Cole’s signature Puma basketball sneaker, one of the first looks at a partnership formally announced in February of this year. In the meantime, check out the video above for a full breakdown of Kuzma's favorite watches, and be sure to keep tabs on the hardwood (or, er, bubble) when the NBA gets going again later this month.
