Since becoming the house band for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in 2014, The Roots have gone from respected hip-hop troupe to globally known super-group. Or put another way, The Roots have become America’s house band. Seriously. What other band can you watch perform every night in your living room?
In the process, they have brought hip-hop to an even wider audience, collaborated with countless artists, and redefined the role of a late-night band. At the center of the band and their success is the extremely tight bond between its two founding members, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson and Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter.
Chances are, if you’ve been paying attention to The Roots’ near-daily performances over the last seven years, you’ve noticed what’s on Black Thought’s wrist. Almost always, it’s one of two Cartier Roadster replica watches for sale.
The co-founder of the Legendary Roots Crew frequently rotates between one in all stainless steel and another in steel-and-gold. But his appreciation for Swiss top replica watches runs much deeper, as we recently found out during an interview. Trotter first started collecting UK 1:1 fake watches when he picked up a Breitling, which he considers his first real watch. He’s also had multiple Panerai and TAG Heuer copy watches for men in his collection, and likes Bell & Ross, as well.
New gold luxury AAA Rolex Daytona replica watches on an Oysterflex strap is probably the keystone of his current lineup. “I’ve always said, if I’m going to do high quality super clone Rolex watches this is how I’m going to do it. I’m not going to do a huge diamond-encrusted all-gold sort of thing,” he said. “I really appreciate that this is understated but real-deal perfect Swiss made imitation watches. The statement that it makes speaks for itself.”
