I’ve mentioned John Mayer and his weekly Instagram show, Current Mood, a couple times already: once to recommend you watch it, and once to talk about John’s and Andy Cohen’s matching platinum Rolexes. On the February 24 post-Oscars edition of Current Mood on IGTV, John made brief mention of his true love, watches, again.
Here’s the setup: He had Tamara Levitt, the common voice of the meditation app Calm, visit the show as a guest. Towards the end of the segment, John mentioned that maybe he could voice an app that helps people get to sleep: he’d just talk about watches. He went on to start talking about the watch he was wearing that night: “The venerable Patek Phillipe 5370 Split Seconds Chronograph,” describing its black lacquer dial and Breguet numerals before cutting the bit short. I was probably the only of the 10,000 or so people watching the IGTV stream that wanted John to keep talking about the $250,000 Patek Phillipe watch adorning his wrist.
John: This sounds like a great app idea. Please do it. Like you, I fall asleep listening to Tamara’s voice on the Calm app, but I’d much rather fall asleep to your voice. Me and a few 15 year-old-girls that still think “Your Body is a Wonderland” is a banger.
