Not even the famous are immune to the spells of fine timepieces

So you want to know what watches rock stars wear? Take a look at our list famous rock stars to find out.


Elvis Presley – Hamilton Ventura

Elvis Presley is well known for wearing a wide selection of fairly unusual watches. In this image, you see him wearing the somewhat peculiar Hamilton Ventura.

Another watch worn by Elvis Presley was this Corum that recently went on auction.

John Lennon – Patek Philippe 2499

The world famous John Lennon, singer, lyricist and guitarist of the Rock ‘n’ Roll legends the Beatles seems to be wearing a yellow gold Patek Philippe Chronograph Triple Date Moonphase reference 2499 in this picture. The photograph was allegedly taken by Yoko Ono on John Lennon’s 40th birthday. Eerily, that would mean that it was taken not long before he was murdered by Mark David Chapman.

Ringo Starr – Patek Philippe & Omega 

Ringo Starr, drummer of The Beatles, used to wear a futuristic Omega Time Computer LED, as well as a Patek Philippe reference 3448. Nowadays though, he is seen wearing the very same watch as his former band member Paul McCartney – the Patek Philippe Aquanaut. Here he is with his Omega Time Computer LED.

Mick Jagger – Seiko & Heuer Autavia & Carrera

Who would have thought that Mick Jagger used to wear a watch made by Seiko? Later in his life he would be seen with Heuer watches, to be specific the Heuer Autavia 11630P as well as the Carrera 1153N.

Keith Richards – IWC Portuguese Chronograph

Alongside Mick Jagger, there was Keith Richards playing the guitar. It looks like he too is a fan of watches! Here he is sporting an IWC Portuguese Chronograph.

Paul McCartney – Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5167A

Sir Paul McCartney is almost always seen sporting his Patek Philippe Aquanaut reference 5167A – he even wore it on his wedding day in 2011 when he married Nancy Shevell!

Zenith & The Rolling Stones

The watchmaker Zenith has created a limited edition series to commemorate the success of the Rolling Stones. Here is a photo of the striking Zenith El Primero Chronomaster 1969 Tribute to the Rolling Stones. 

Bill Wyman – Rolex “Rootbeer” GMT-Master

The bassist of the Rolling Stones owns a two-tone Rolex GMT-Master reference 1675. In recent pictures of him, he is seen still wearing the same model! On a side note: Did you know that Charlie Watts, drummer of the Rolling Stones, collects pocket watches? Unfortunately, we don’t have a picture of what must be an extensive collection.

Bruce Springsteen – Rolex Submariner

The singer-songwriter Bruce – aka “The Boss” – Springsteen whose music was influenced by Rock n’ Roll can be found wearing a stainless steel Rolex Submariner. A classic for a legend.

Axl Rose – Audemars Piguet Royal Oak

Axl Rose of Guns N’ Roses is often seen wearing an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore. Here he is sporting the ROO Volcano with bright orange accents.

Slash – Breitling Chronomat

The renowned Slash, also of Guns N’ Roses, has taste in watches that is a little bit different. Here he is, a famous fan of the Breitling Chronomat – a fitting watch for a guitarist of his stature and calibre!

John Paul Jones – Rolex GMT-Master

John Paul Jones – no, not the American Revolutionary War Hero –  the bassist of Led Zeppelin, wears a Two-Tone Rolex GMT-Master. In some older pictures, you can see him wearing what seems to be the very same watch. His choice of a timepiece isn’t surprising to us whatsoever – it is a Rolex after all.

Eric Clapton – Rolex GMT Master II & Patek Philippe 5970G

Eric Clapton is an esteemed collector of watches. In fact, he has sold watches at auctions with proceeds going to charity. He is often seen wearing a Rolex, but is also a collector of Patek Philippe timepieces. In fact, a watch that belonged to Eric Clapton sold for a whopping $3.6 million at a Christie’s auction in 2012. Here you see him wearing one of his Patek Philippe timepieces, a reference 5970G.

Jon Bon Jovi Hublot Unico King

Another Rockstar with a flair, Jon Bon Jovi wearing what looks to be Hublot Big Bang Unico King. The bold and contemporary Unico fits perfectly into his rockstar lifestyle.

Bono – Rolex Day-Date

Bono, famous for being the frontman of Irish band U2 is a discerning man. You can see him here wearing a platinum Rolex Day-Date. Bono may have an expensive taste in watches, but he is also an active philanthropist and has helped in many charity causes.

Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler – Rolex Cosmograph Daytona “Jungle”

Not that we have to be the ones to tell you, but for those of you who don’t already know, Steven Tyler is the lead singer of the American rock band Aerosmith. The “Demon of Screamin” sports his trademark yellow gold Rolex Cosmograph Daytona “Leopard” Special Edition. The unique timepiece has a leopard texture diamond dial and a leopard skin strap with an 18 carat yellow gold deployable flip-lock clasp. Not the typical Rolex Daytona, but a sure fit for Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler.

Depeche Mode – Big Bang Aero Bang Depeche Mode

One of the most popular electronic bands that the world has ever known is a big fan of Hublot. In partnership with the band, Hublot released the limited edition Big Bang Aero Bang Depeche Mode in 2014 for charity. Each of the band members has one of these models, which are limited to 250 pieces worldwide.
