Finally, and perhaps most mysteriously, Jared Leto’s dramatic transformation as Aldo Gucci’s son, Paolo, complete with lilac corduroy suit accessorised with a piece of tissue stuck up his cocaine-ravaged nostril, sees him wear big gold fake watches shop site with the Gucci red and green stripe on the dial. Was Gucci making Swiss made replica watches in the ’80s? Perhaps it’s a piece from the archive? No one knows, but why let period detail get in the way of a good timepiece?
