The fascinating stories behind the watches of iconic people throughout history

Watches are often a personal part of our identify we carry around on our wrists for years – if not decades – and are usually chosen with the utmost care as they can often be treasured for generations to come.

This rings true for some famous faces whose image is all apart of their appeal, and often spend thousands on making sure the watch they wear around their wrist reflects how they want to be seen by the public.

The stories of how some iconic celebrities or royals over the last 100 years chose their watches have now been revealed in a report compiled by luxury Swiss watch dealer Bucherer.

Those in the public eye can often be chosen by watch houses to represent and endorse their brand, or alternatively they may stumble across it by themselves. 

Oprah Winfrey chose her Rado True Thinline watch because she was able to wear it with almost anything, for the countless daytime TV shows, dinners and parties she has to attend as a media mogul.

She loves the timepiece so much she has also previously mentioned it in her ‘Favourite Things’ list for Christmas, which is a popular gift guide for Americans.

The TV host was most recently spotted wearing the diamond quartz in high-tech ceramics wristwatch at the premier of her Greenleaf series, and said she picked it due to its readability and effortlessness.  

As well as its athletically pleasing design, it is also durable and features a hypoallergenic element, as well as being lightweight and scratch resistant. 

In the case of Albert Einstein, he was gifted his most treasured watch by a rabbi during a lunch date at a Zionist convention held at a hotel in Los Angeles.

Einstein, who arguably understood time better than anyone – after discovering that it is relative to the speed of light, received the watch in 1931 two years after it was crafted.

The time piece was a Longines, an elegant yellow gold watch which was tonneau-shaped and had Einstein’s name inscribed on it along with the location and date.

After falling in love with the delicate watch, he also bought another Longines watch, this time a pocket watch in 1943, which is now kept in a museum in Berne along with the wristwatch.

Both of the pieces belonging to Einstein went to auction, the wristwatch was sold for an eye-watering $596,000 in 2008, making it the highest priced Longines to ever go auction. 

During his mission to the moon, astronaut Buzz Aldrin wore an Omega Speedmaster on his wrist, also making the watch the first to ever be worn on the moon.

The watch is now dubbed the ‘Moon Watch’ and was worn as Aldrin made the Apollo 11 moonwalk alongside Commander Neil Armstrong in 1969 after it met the requirements held by NASA to attempt the mission.

Aldrin may have chosen his watch due to its stealthy durability which has been proved by the many adventurers that have worn it before him, including pilots and explorers.

The model chosen by Aldrin was the Omega Speedmaster ST105.012, which featred a 42mm case and a calibre 321 and mysteriously disappeared after he followed protocol and sent it to the Smithsonian Museum in Washington to be displayed.

It is possible that today the watch would be sold for millions at auction if it were to ever turn up.

The watch was an 18 carat white gold Omega Constellation watch complete with a diamond bezel

Elvis Presley is another icon who was gifted his designer watch, the Jailhouse rock singer was given his timepiece by his record label RCA after becoming the first artist ever to sell 75 million copies of his record 

Elvis Presley is another icon who was gifted his designer watch, the Jailhouse rock singer was given his timepiece by his record label RCA after becoming the first artist ever to sell 75 million copies of his record. 

The watch was an 18 carat white gold Omega Constellation watch complete with a diamond bezel,   

The king of rock’s wristwatch went on sale earlier this year in the Phillip’s annual watch auction in Geneva, which has previously sold many celebrities’ watches including Paul Newman’s iconic Rolex Daytona for just under $18 million.

Elvis’ watch featured a thoughtful engraving on the back which read, ‘To Elvis, 75 Million Records, RCA Victor, 12-25-60’, to commemorate his historic achievement.

It is believed that the watch is the only Omega watch with a diamond bezel to be sold by famous jewellers Tiffany & Co, whose brand is stamped on the dial of the watch.

This is incredibly rare and would be near enough unheard of for designers to co-brand their luxury items now, but during the 1960s Tiffany would be associated with watches crafted by Rolex, Omega and Patek Philippe.

Elvis’ watch is thought to have fetched the second highest auction fee for the brand in history after it was bought for $1,812,500.

In his music Jay-Z has made his liking for Swiss brand Audemars Piguet clear in many of his tracks and even collaborated with the watch makers in 2006 to mark a decade in the industry.

To commemorate Jay’s achievement, a limited edition Royal Oak Offshore watch – marked with the rappers signature on the back – was released.

The numeral ten on the watches’ dial was set in diamonds as a nod to the anniversary, anyone who bought the watch was given a free engraved iPod which held Jay-Z’s entire discography.

However due to his hugely successful career and estimated net worth of $900 million, Jay has never stayed entirely loyal to the brand.

He was gifted a dazzling Hublot Big Bang on his 43rd by his songstress wife Beyonce, following his own collaboration with the brand which was called the Sean Carter Hublot Classic Fusion. 

Although Jay may be extremely wealthy, he isn’t nearly as well off as the richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos, who represents his personality with an Ulysse Nardin timepiece made of stainless steel, sapphire crystals and finished with a stainless steel strap.

The founder of Amazon and the owner of The Washington Post, who is estimated to be worth $150 billion, wears the Ulysse Nardin Dual Time 233-88-7 which boasts a Dual Time function

John Travolta has been spotted sporting a variety of watches over the years, but his favourite appears to be the Breitling Navitimer, which he is most often seen wearing as well as featuring in a number of their campaigns. 

The Breitling Navitimer’s bezel was used to calculate complicated operations and was hence employed by the U.S. Air Force before becoming the brand dedicated to pilots.    

Since then their commitment to aviation has grown and they are now the official supplier to major aircraft companies including Boeing, fitting their dashboard instruments.  

Travolta’s particular model features a black leather strap, black dial and white hands, encased with sapphire crystal, as well as being beautiful it also self-winds and has an incredible power reserve.

Kate Middleton is hardly ever seen without her Ballon Bleu De Cartier, which was gifted to her by Prince William on their third wedding anniversary.

Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge may appear similar to the standard model, however it has bee reported that William had a Sapphire previously belonging to his late mother the late Princess Diana encased into the elegant watch.

The watch is thought to complement her famous engagement ring which also once belonged to Diana following her engagement to William’s father Prince Charles.

William’s choice of brand doesn’t come as a shock, as the Royal’s have often been known to pick Cartier as their watch brand of choice.Kate Middleton is hardly ever seen without her Ballon Bleu De Cartier, which was gifted to her by Prince William on their third wedding anniversary

Following Royal tradition, the newest addition to the ‘The Firm’, Megan Markle also wears a Cartier watch on her wrist, which she bought herself to celebrate the success of her first big break, Suits.

The Duchess of Sussex’s model is the Cartier Tank Francaise, and features an engraving on the back which reads ‘To M.M from M.M’, with alleged hopes of giving it to her future daughter one day. 

The original Tank design was inspired by military tanks from the WWI period and dates back to 1919, although they have been updated they still hold the original ideas from the first design.

During the peak of her illustrious career Madonna was most often spotted wearing a Cartier Panthere watch, the timeless piece was launched in 1983 and was a staple for many celebrities of the time. 

After wearing the watch on her own wrist for many years and by the time she had sold more than 70 million albums wordwide, she is believe to have gifted the timepiece to Candian singer Alanis Morisette.

The watch was available until 2004 after 21 years of being bought by the wealthy and famous, however after the brand noticed a resurgence in vintage watches it was brought back in 2017.   

They relaunched the piece in steel or gold, giving the option of having it with or without diamonds, alongside the tagline ‘Jewellery first, timepiece second.’ 

Madonna’s own watch featured a quartz moves and a signature blue sapphire Crown.

Arguably one of the most famous women in history, Marilyn Monroe owned a breathtaking watch to match her incredible beauty and style – a dainty diamond Blancpain cocktail watch.

During her career where she was cast into the spotlight after landing a contract with Twentieth Century Fox, Marilyn wore the stunning time piece, which was typical of the era and believed to have been one of few accessories she owned.

The watch was set with 71 round diamonds and two marquise diamonds and is thought to have fetched $225,000 at auction by the manufacturer and is now displayed at their museum in Switzerland.

Queen Elizabeth II’s most notable watch is the one she wore for her coronation in 1953, a Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101 diamond-set timepiece, 66 years ago.

The Calibre 101 famously houses the smallest mechanical movement inside a watch to have ever been made, and the brand presented her with another 101 design in 2012 to commemorate her Diamond Jubilee.

The idea behind the watch was to create a beautiful accessory as well as a timepiece, hoping to radiate delicacy and femininity for the Queen to treasure for years to come.

While getting in character for his role in Daylight, Sylvester Stallone wanted to work on his characters’ appearance, when he spotted a Panerai Luminor in Rome.

He is believed to have thought that the watch had ‘star power’, and was to taken by it that he went on to buy several more of the brand’s models with his signature which he gave as presents to his friends. 

One of the recipients of the watch was his pal Arnold Schwarzenegger who donned the timepiece for his role in Escape Plan, as well as being heavily featured in The Expendables.

Drake Ties A Headscarf On 3-Year-Old Son Adonis’ Head As Doting Grandma Sandi Watches

Drake taught his son Adonis how to tie a head scarf in precious new photos, as his mom Sandi Graham looked on adoringly at her son and only grandchild.

Drake had an adorable family moment with his three-year-old son Adonis and his mom Sandy Graham, 61, and couldn’t wait to share it with his nearly 73 million Instagram followers. The “Toosie Slide” singer was at home in Toronto and showed off two intimate IG stories photos on Dec. 17 of him showing how to tie a do-rag around little Adonis’ curly blonde locks. In the first snapshot, Drizzy’s son sat patiently on his daddy’s bed while the 34-year-old bent over and tied the royal blue scarf around in the back. Drake had a focused look on his face, as he made sure he did a solid job.

In the next photo, Adonis was again sitting still and patiently letting his dad work on his head scarf. He looked adorable in a dark sweatshirt with white stars across the back of it, while Drake was equally casual in a black t-shirt. His beloved mom Sandi looked on wearing a grey shirt, beaming with pride at the father-son moment, as her only child doted over her only grandchild. Three generations of Grahams, all in one photo! Adonis’ mom is French artist Sophie Brussaux, who Drake dated briefly.

Singer Drake has become quite the doting dad to his three-year-old son Adonis. Photo credit: SplashNews.

Adonis’ hair is usually wild and curly, and he apparently got his blonde tresses from Sandi, as Drake’s fans think his son looks so much like his grandma. But the last time the kiddo was seen on social media, Drake shared an Instagram story photo  on Nov. 29 where Adonis’ hair was braided to form a series of hearts on the back of his head. The tot also had his hair braided in a Sept. 9 IG photo that Sophie posted of Adonis’ first day of preschool, which you can see below. So those scarf skills are going to come in handy for the youngster to give him a smooth wave.

Not only did Drake give fans a rare took at his family time with his son, he showed off his private master bedroom inside the palatial 50,000 square foot mansion he owns in North-East Toronto’s Bridle Path area. The grey and white bedspread with bird prints was visible as Adonis sat on it, as was his bed’s large grey headboard.

“The bedroom is where I come to decompress from the world at the end of the night and where I open my eyes to seize the day,” Drake said in an Apr. 2020 interview and feature with Architectural Digest where the bedroom was showcased in photos. “The bed lets you float, the shower lets you escape and gather your thoughts, and the closet makes you want to talk to yourself while you’re getting dressed,” Drizzy explained. His one of a kind bed was handcrafted at the Hastens atelier in Sweden, taking 600 man hours to make. No wonder he feels like he “floats” on it. The bed also made for an adorable salon setting for Drake to show Adonis how to tie a head-scarf.

Kiara Advani will see her first theatrical release of the year Indoo Ki Jawani on Friday and has encouraged her fans to watch the film in theatres which have now been opened for the moviegoers. The actor set an example by sharing a picture of the film’s screening at a movie theatre which was attended by her family two days before the film release.

Sharing a family picture from the theatre, Kiara wrote, “Finally!! Back at the cinemas … missed the Big screen so much!

Director Abir Sengupta had urged audiences to wait for the film’s release in theatres rather than watch it on OTT platforms. “We believe that audiences are looking forward to the cinema experience. In today’s difficult times, we need a dose of entertainment, and a fun-filled film like Indoo Ki Jawani will cater to those who want the big-screen experience,” he said.

Talking about releasing the film in theatres amidst the current situation, he said, “Nothing is more important than human lives, and I am sure theatre owners are taking adequate measures to ensure the audience’s safety. So, I hope people will step into theatres like before.”

Kiara’s earlier release Laxmmi and Guilty had released on OTT platforms.

8 Watches That Look Like A Rolex But Are Under $100


Rolex watches are equated to status and power thanks to their fine details, like intricate subdials – but what if we told you that you can recreate the same effect with watches for MUCH cheaper? Check out these amazing Rolex alternatives!

If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, we may receive an affiliate commission. 

Watches are a status symbol you wear on your wrist, and some people pay for that price dearly — sometimes up to thousands in the triple digits for a Rolex. You don’t need to sacrifice multiple mortgage payments to have a beautiful piece of jewelry to help you tell the time, though! Rolexes are fawned over for their oystersteel and golds and nifty features like tachymetric scales, but you can find watches that look just as beautifully crafted. And, if you’re not hanging around a bunch of old money heirs in a country club, it’s likely no one will notice the difference anyway.

There are many types of watches, but Rolex is primarily known for its classic analog watches (like the one shown above). (Photo Credit: maxbelchenko/Adobe)

So, HollywoodLife has rounded up the best Rolex alternatives to help you feel just as posh — on a budget, that is! Obviously, you’re not aiming for real gold with a price cap of $100, but rather quality materials like stainless steel — which won’t leave those nasty green marks on your skin or rust — which can still come in a multitude of colors other than the basic steel color (like gold).

To best mimic a Rolex watch, we sought out watches with that “classic” analog look with some modern flairs as well. As a heads up, when shopping for watches, pay attention to the movement (the engine in a watch that controls the ticking), cases (the pretty part that holds together all the watch’s mechanisms; not to be confused with the band), bezels (which surround the case) and faces (the part that displays time). Now that you’ve completed your crash course, don’t let another minute slip away; check out these amazing watch deals on Amazon now:

Phil Collins’ ex-wife boxes with a trainer while her 30-year-old new husband watches


Phil Collins’ ex-wife practiced her jabs during an intense boxing session with her new husband in tow at the Miami mansion caught in a contentious $40million property dispute. 

Orianne Cevey, 46, was seen on Friday throwing punches with her physical trainer outside the palatial estate while her new, younger husband, Thomas Bates, soaked up the Florida sun nearby.  

While dressed in form-fitting grey workout clothes, Orianne continued to move about the property without worry despite Collins, 69, making aggressive efforts to evict the new couple.  

Collins, who recently attended a Genesis reunion rehearsal last week amid continued health concerns, has accused Orianne of squatting in the home and demanded the couple leave so he can sell the property.

In battling court documents viewed by DailyMail.com, Cevey argued that Collins made an oral agreement in 2015 that she had a 50 per cent stake in the property.

Collins launched his drastic legal action earlier this month ago after calling it quits with Orianne for the second time. The pair married in 1999 and had sons Nicholas, 19, and Matthew, 15, before splitting seven years later. 

Despite agreeing to a record $47m divorce settlement they surprised the world in 2016 when they announced they were back together and living in the Miami home, which Collins purchased through an LLC.

However the relationship ended, seemingly for good, when he discovered Orianne had ‘secretly’ married 31-year-old Bates in Las Vegas on August 2.

Bates has not appeared to publicly address Collins directly, but was spotted on Friday walking the large property shirtless while occasionally  sneaking peeks of Orianne.

Both appeared to be in good shape after Orianne claimed she needed to remain in the home to treat a ‘debilitating’ spinal condition. DailyMail.com reported that Orianne shared several photos of her jet setting and even climbing a mountain in Switzerland three years ago.

According to court filings, the Against All Odds gave the couple until October 12 to pack their bags and move so he could put the plush property up for sale.

When they failed to leave, Collins sued Orianne for unlawful detainer and forcible entry, accusing the pair of hiring armed guards, covering over security cameras and changing alarm codes to seize the house ‘by a show of force.’

Orianne argues that she surrendered a $20m stake in her previous Miami home by getting a ‘quickie divorce’ from her previous husband, Charles Mejjati.

She picked out and jointly furnished the waterfront mansion, paid her share of the bills for five years and had an ‘oral co-habitation agreement’ with Collins that entitled her and their two sons to be there, according to her filing.

Orianne also claims to have informed Collins about her marriage to Bates after making multiple attempts to talk about their ‘deteriorating relationship’ which she maintains he was unwilling to address.

The mother-of-three admits covering over security cameras but alleges that this was because Collins had 20 secret devices installed around the $12,000 sq ft residence to spy on her, including in her bathroom and changing room.

Orianne further insists that having to leave the house would be especially unfair on her youngest son – a nine-year-old referred to in court documents only as A.A. – with whom she shares custody with Miami-based Mejjati.   

The relationship between Collins and Orianne continued to clash after she made a series of personal attacks at her ex in court documents. 

The headline-grabbing spat appeared to have reached a truce last week when a ‘partial settlement’ was agreed in clear the air Zoom talks between Orianne, 31-year-old Bates and Collins, who is currently in London rehearsing for a Genesis reunion.

The arrangement gave jewelry designer Orianne, who has two sons with Collins, until January to pack her bags and leave while the seven-bed Miami Beach residence was put on the market.

Hostilities resumed, however, when Orianne submitted a fresh court filing Monday that portrayed Collins as a washed-up has-been who turned to booze and painkillers when his vocal ability ‘diminished’.

The In the Air Tonight crooner was ‘usually drunk by mid-morning’, her attorneys alleged, to the point that Collins would fall over and injure himself before checking into the hospital under an alias.

‘By 2019 Philip had lost his talents. He became increasingly depressed, withdrawn and abusive and, following an operation his back, increasingly addicted to anti-depressants and painkillers,’ her filing stated.

‘As Philip’s binge drinking and resulting injuries from falling became worse his mental state, likewise, deteriorated.

‘By 2019, he was incapable of having sex. He stopped showering, brushing his teeth and dressing properly (in fact he did not shower or brush his teeth from 2019 until August 2020 when he vacated the property).’

Collins began to smell and his ‘stench became so pervasive that he became a hermit, refusing to interact personally with any people’, the document went on to allege.

‘He was either incapable or he refused to provide emotional support, love or care for his children or Orianne,’ her attorneys wrote, listing their claims under mock song titles including ‘Not Another Day in Paradise’ and ‘Philip … Sue Sue Sideos’.

According to her filing, ‘By August 2020, Philip had withdrew from society, and via text to Orianne, he said that he was moving to Switzerland, stating, “I am sure the children will understand” and that he will remain there at least through the end of the year, if not permanently.’

The filing provoked an immediate rebuttal from the Collins camp, who described it as ‘a litany of demonstrably false, immaterial, impertinent, scandalous and scurrilous allegations which have nothing to do with the legal claims in this case.’

‘These allegations are included only to further defendants’ plan to deliberately make sensationalized and/or false allegations in an effort to extort money,’ they wrote in a motion to strike obtained by DailyMail.com

They urged Miami Dade Circuit Court Judge Spencer Eig to bar similar allegations and hit their counterparts with an award of fees sanction for making arguments in ‘bad faith’.

‘The court should order them stricken and then order that there will be no discovery on these topics because they are plainly not relevant,’ the motion says.

‘To be clear, these false and scandalous allegations are included only so that they can be delivered by defendants to the media to try to damage Phil Collins’ reputation.’

 Collins’ called the allegations ‘scandalous and scurrilous’ attempt to wreck his reputation and calling on a judge to strike the remarks from the record and hit their counterparts with extra legal fees.

Mom-to-be Anushka Sharma twins with Virat Kohli in red as she watches RCB vs SRH IPL 2020 match


Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore may have ended their Indian Premiere League campaign after losing to Sunrisers Hyderabad by six-wicket in Eliminator but their fans only have good words to say about them. Virat’s actor wife Anushka Sharma, who has been a constant support as she cheered Virat during the tournament.

During Friday’s Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad match, Anushka looked gorgeous in red as she watched the match. Anushka sat through the entire game and cheered for the team during a tough match.

  

The soon-to-be-mom was glowing with good health. Fans on Twitter were quick to tag her as ‘the most supportive wife’ and ‘big support’ for the cricketer. Earlier in the IPL, Virat and Anushka had served the fans with a cute moment. Virat, while on the field, had gestured to Anushka asking whether she had had food, and she had replied in the affirmative.

After the IPL Eliminator, Virat had said about their defeat, “Maybe a bit of nerves, maybe a bit of hesitation, we need to be more expressive with the bat. We didn’t have any phases in the game where we got away from the opposition. We just allowed bowlers to bowl to the areas they wanted to and didn’t put enough pressure on them. In the last two-three games, we have hit it straight to the fielders, lot of good shots going to the fielders. It has been a strange kind of phase in the last four-five games.”

Anushka has been busy with her productions during the lockdown, including Paatal Lok and Bulbbul. She was last seen on the big screen in Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif-starrer Zero. The film ended up as a critical and box office dud.

Pickford freaks out after Newcastle goal vs Everton as he watches on from stands


Jordan Pickford was caught blowing his top following Newcastle’s goal against Everton on Sunday as he watched on from the stands.

The England international has had a tough start to the season after some huge errors between the sticks.

In Everton’s 4-2 win over Brighton, the 26-year-old was at fault for both goals but fortunately, the club’s frontmen bailed them out.

But it appeared enough to convince Carlo Ancelotti to take the keeper out of the firing line.

As a former Sunderland player and devout Mackem, Pickford’s emotional connection to the club has seen him take his game to an emotional level against Newcastle – their arch-rivals.

It happened last season when the Magpies came back from two goals down to claim a 3-2 victory over Everton, with both coming from Pickford errors.

And even in the stands, the shot-stopper could not stop himself getting irate after Callum Wilson’s second-half penalty.

A quick flash from the cameras showed Pickford roar out in agony and hit the air.

Wilson would go on to add a second before a late Dominic Calvert-Lewin strike halved Newcastle’s lead.

But it was not enough to prevent Ancelotti’s men from back-to-back defeats.

And the Italian admitted Pickford would be back in goal against Manchester United this weekend and insisted he has always rotated his keepers.

It came after praising Robin Olsen, who arrived from Roma on a season-long loan to put pressure on the No. 1 spot.

“He played well and I can say to you he’s going to play again – but not against United,” Ancelotti said.

Since the beginning of the 2019-20 season, no keeper has made more errors than Pickford which have directly led to a goal.

“In my career, I am used to rotating the goalkeepers. It happened at Real Madrid, it happened also at Napoli. It will not be the last time, of course.”

“This doesn’t mean that we don’t have trust in Jordan – we have a lot of trust in Jordan,” added Ancelotti. “There’s no doubt about this.”

Wandsworth stabbing: Little girl watches medics try to save teen’s life


London through a little girl’s eyes: Child watches police and paramedics fight in vain to save life of 15-year-old boy who was stabbed to death

  • Joseph Marfini suffered fatal knife wounds in brawl by Wandsworth Sainsbury’s 
  • An image shows a young girl watching medics trying in vain to save him 
  • A supermarket worker said: ‘It was a horrible thing for that little girl to see’
  • Police say Imran Boujdellal, 19, was today charged with Marfini’s murder

A toddler watched police and paramedics fight in vain to save the life of a 15-year-old boy who was stabbed to death in a double knife attack in south London earlier this week.

Joseph Marfini, 15, died in hospital after being knifed during the gang fight which broke out in front of horrified shoppers outside Wandsworth Sainsbury’s on Thursday afternoon. 

The girl, who is thought to be aged around two years old, could be seen with her face pressed up against the glass inside the shopping centre as paramedics and police desperately tried to save Marfini’s life outside.  

After some time, the girl’s mother realised what her daughter was looking at and moved her away from the window, the Evening Standard reported. 

A toddler watched police and paramedics fight in vain to save the life of a 15-year-old boy who was stabbed to death in a double knife attack in south London earlier this week

A supermarket worker told the Standard: ‘It was a horrible thing for that little girl to see. The boy injured outside Sainsbury’s was in a terrible way. 

‘The paramedics worked so hard on him giving CPR. Loads of people were still shopping. Staff were trying to do whatever they could to help.’

Another witness said: ‘It was totally shocking. It was right outside the store. There was a group of other boys looking on and shoppers inside.’

A shopper said: ‘It was an awful thing for the little girl to see.’ 

Today Imran Boujdellal, 19, was charged with the murder of Marfini. Two other teenagers have also been arrested in connection with the investigation, police said. 

A second 15-year-old boy was also taken to hospital with stab wounds which have been assessed as being non-life threatening.    

Murder cops are carrying out enquiries and a post-mortem examination is due to take place, Scotland Yard said.

Joseph is the fourteenth teenager to be murdered in the capital this year. 

Traumatised supermarket staff were sent home from work after many witnessed the incident.

Onlookers told how officers shouted, ‘this is a crime scene – get back, get back’, as horrified shoppers witnessed the bloody aftermath outside the shop as paramedics administered CPR.

Detective Chief Inspector Vicky Tunstall, of the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, told the Standard: ‘My deepest condolences are with the family of this young man. 

‘I want to reassure them that my team and I are working to give them the answers they deserve. 

‘While our investigation is still in its early days, it would appear that an altercation occurred between two groups of males in the Garratt Lane area, outside Sainsbury’s, at around 4.50pm on Thursday evening.

‘It was during this altercation that the victim was stabbed and sadly, later died.

‘This was a busy area, very near to the shopping centre within Wandsworth. 

‘There will be people who saw or heard something suspicious that could help us to piece together the final moments for the victim and possibly identify who was responsible. It is these people we urgently need to speak to.’

She added: ‘All calls will be treated with sensitivity and confidentiality.’  

Police appealed for anyone with information, video or images that could help the investigation to call 101 reference CAD 5042/29
