If you’re a fan of the hit Netflix K-drama Itaewon Class, then you know very well that Park Sae-ro-yi, played by the handsome Park Seo Joon, resolved to trump the company owned by his pompous wealthy classmate Geun-won after killing his father in a reckless driving accident. In memory of his loving father, Sae-ro-yi never removes the watch he inherited from him. It’s this watch that fans will catch over and over again throughout the show.
Well, if you’ve grown attached to the timepiece just like Sae-ro-yi, perhaps you can invest in it yourself. Yes, we discovered that the watch is actually the Star Legacy Full Calendar model from the Swiss luxury brand Montblanc. What makes this watch incredibly unique is that aside from indicating the hours and minutes, it also indicates the seconds in the middle of the dial. Aside from that, it also includes a day-date feature and a moonphase display.

The simple yet elegant design features a stainless steel case and a silvery-white dial with the iconic Montblanc exploding star guilloche pattern, surrounded by black Arabic numerals that add a vintage touch. Another special detail is the dreamy midnight blue color of the alligator leather strap that matches the watch's blued hands. Such fine elements make it the perfect, fuss-free dress watch to take from a meeting to a fancy affair.
There’s no question that for Sae-ro-yi, the watch’s sentimental value far exceeds its appearance. But perhaps the same holds true for the actor behind the lead character, too! Fun fact: Park Seo-joon is actually the first ambassador of Montblanc Korea! He was tapped as the brand's model back in May 2018. That gives you more reason to consider copping a piece, if you’re willing to shell out P268,800.00, that is.
