Celebrity Watch Collections

By Mustafa Cint

The world of stars and glamour has its share of head-turners: glamorous performances, leading roles in films, amazing songs, not to mention the exquisite taste you’ll often find in the personal watch collections of these big names. The timepieces adorning the wrists of starts aren’t just accessories; they’re masterpieces that tell amazing stories and let the personalities of their wearers shine. How much are some of these collections worth?

Our easy-to-use Chrono24 Watch Collection makes answering this question a cinch. Let’s take a look at the watch collections of three big-time celebrity personalities.

Rihanna

The Chrono24 Watch Collection recently underwent an update or, as folks affectionately refer to it these days, a “glow up.” Be sure to check out its re-worked, intuitive design to see how your watches, and the watches of the following celebrities, are performing.

Speaking of glow ups, let’s talk about Rihanna. Originally breaking onto the scene with her music, she’s now been a fashion trend-setter for years. And what does every great-looking outfit need? The perfect watch to go along with it.

Along with a classic Rolex Day-Date 36, several Datejust 36 models and a Patek Philippe Nautilus, Rihanna has other extravagant timepieces in her collection. Perhaps the one that stands out the most is the Rolex Cellini King Midas. Enthusiasts may be taken aback to learn that Gérald Genta, famous for designing the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Patek Philippe Nautilus, and IWC Ingenieur, also designed this watch for Rolex. Released in 1964, the Cellini King Midas has a very un-Rolex design and has seen a surge in popularity in recent years after being spotted on the wrist of fashion icon Rihanna.

Die King Midas sticht mit dem für Rolex untypischen Design hervor.
The King Midas and its very untypical design (by Rolex standards, at least)

Watch Scanner, Meet Watch Collection

The Watch Scanner is one of the most-used features in the Watch Collection. Previously, you’d enter your watches using their brand, model name, or reference number. Now it’s even easier: use the Watch Scanner to snap a picture of your watch and add it to your collection.

LeBron James

LeBron James is not only a hard court legend, he also knows how to inspire the sports world with his timepieces. As a connoisseur of fine watches, he embodies the symbiosis between sport and luxury as an ambassador for Audemars Piguet. It’s no wonder that the watchmaker has dedicated an entire special edition exclusively to him: the Royal Oak Offshore LeBron James Edition. Otherwise, James’ personal collection is estimated at around $8 million and reflects his eclectic taste, with stunning pieces from Patek Philippe, Rolex, Audemars Piguet, and Richard Mille in a number of eye-catching, sometimes unusual designs and color schemes.

One of these is the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 “Tiffany.” Only 170 of these very limited edition models were manufactured, the first of which was sold at auction for a staggering $6.5 million.

Nur 170 Exemplare wurden produziert und eines davon darf LeBron James sein Eigen nennen.
Only 170 made, and LeBron gets to call one of them his own.

Assuming LeBron was able to get his Tiffany Patek at its list price of $52,000, he’s sure to be more than happy with its 4,733.1% price performance growth.

Drake

When it comes to luxury and style, you know it’s going to be Canadian rap superstar Drake who takes it to the next level. His watch collection is no exception. You’ll hear him rapping about “stunting” and “ice on my wrist” in his songs, while you see him living it out in real life with his timepieces.

Be sure to check out Luxury Watches and the World of Hip-Hop.

Drake’s watch collection is considered by many to be home to some of the holy grails of watchmaking. It starts with perhaps the most coveted Rolex of them all, the Paul Newman, includes a Patek Philippe 40th Anniversary Edition Nautilus 5711, and includes the extremely playful Jacob & Co. Astronomia Casino.

In Drakes Uhrensammlung befinden sich viele Schätze, so etwa auch die Rolex Daytona Paul Newman.
Drake’s watch collection is home to a number of treasures, such as the Rolex Daytona Paul Newman.

As a rapper, you know Drake needs a bling watch or two. Just one example in his collection is his white gold Rolex Sky-Dweller, which is completely covered in the finest diamonds and features a rare meteorite dial. This watch is limited to just three pieces and is manufactured directly by Rolex. In other words, this isn’t an aftermarket watch that someone else put on. And by the way, it carries a price tag of over $1 million.

Drake’s watch collection is currently valued at a hefty $9 million.
