Celebrities…they’re just like us! No, not really. But when it comes to the watches they love, they are just like any other watch enthusiast, except that, because they are photographed so often, they wear their hearts on their sleeves. Well, under their sleeves, to be precise, on their wrists. Here, then, some celebrities and their favorite watches.
Ellen DeGeneres and Omega Speedmaster
Ellen DeGeneres is a serious collector of luxury timepieces. She’s greeted guests on her show while wearing a wide variety of different high-end watch brands. One that makes a regular appearance is the Speedmaster from Omega. The watches of the Speedmaster collection were designed and engineered to withstand the harshest possible conditions with style and elegance. Available in a wide variety of complications, movements, strap materials, and crystals.
Rihanna and Chopard
Rihanna is another watch aficionado, and a number of luxury brands have found their way into her music videos and onto various red carpets. In 2017 she took it a step further and partnered with Chopard to introduce the “Rihanna loves Chopard” high end jewelry collection. As Chopard’s elegant, refined, and altogether exquisite timepieces were celebrated in the court of Tsar Nicholas, it seems fitting they would now adorn the wrist of our reigning pop princess.
Rami Malek and Montblanc
Rami Malek was the epitome of style when he portrayed Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. While he was a bit less fashion forward as Mr. Robot, the part won him an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, and right there on his wrist as he collected his Emmy was a Montblanc 38mm Heritage Chronometrie Automatic. Each impeccably designed timepiece in the Heritage collection displays Montblanc’s passion for fine Swiss watchmaking.
Gordon Ramsay and Breitling
Gordon Ramsay has been known to rock several different luxury watches as he eviscerates chef hopefuls on Hell’s Kitchen. One in particular that stood out thanks to its bold yellow color was a Breitling Cockpit Chronograph. Breitling has long held a preeminent position as the timepiece brand of choice in the worlds of science, sport, aviation, and technology. Now, thanks to Mr. Ramsay, you can add global restaurateur and TV personality to that impressive list.
Luke Bryan and Breguet
Luke Bryan, country music mega-star and American Idol co-host, isn’t afraid to showcase one of the world’s most dazzling, technologically innovative timepieces available today. He’s been seen strolling the red carpet wearing a rose gold Breguet Tradition Fusee Tourbillon 7047. In fact, the Breguet Tradition seems to be a celebrity favorite—you may have also caught Ben Affleck enjoying a night on the town with a platinum Tradition Fusee Tourbillon on his wrist.
John Mayer and G-Shock
Which celebrity owns the most extensive, expensive watch collection? The surprising answer just may be musician John Mayer, whose collection is valued at, by his own admission, in the tens of millions. However, in 2020 Mayer lent his name and design expertise to a fun, affordable timepiece when he collaborated with G-Shock on the Ref. 6900, based on the design of a Casio keyboard he played as a young man.
Joel McHale and Glashutte Original
Joel McHale, snarky host of The Soup and star of the hit show, Community, has what might be called an obsession with the Glashutte Original Vintage lineup, as he counts not one, not two, but three of their watches in his collection: The stainless steel Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date, the Seventies Panorama Date with blue dial, and the Sixties Square Chronograph with black dial. When you know what you like…
Dwayne Johnson and Arnold & Son
Finally, one of the biggest stars of this century – Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson – can be found wearing a watch as bold and iconic as he is. A match made in heaven, Johnson immortalized his love for the Arnold & Son Time Pyramid Gold with a tweet, “One of my fav watches. Amazing piece.” With an openworked architecture, 18K red gold case, hours on a sapphire disc, and the minutes on a rhodium plated ring this is a one-of-a-kind timepiece for a one-of-a-kind superstar.
