John Mayer

John Mayer’s appreciation for the beautiful things in life is reflected in his passion for acquiring luxury timekeepers, which first began with a Rolex Explorer. He slowly expanded upon it with choice pieces that reflected the refined tastes of a serious watch collector. His collection also includes multiple timekeepers from Patek Philippe e.g. an elaborate chronograph and perpetual calendar combo as well as a Ref. 5396G (one from a 100 limited piece edition).

If rumour mongering is to be believed, then Mayer’s substantial watch amassment has a total worth measuring in the multi-millions. It’s not surprising that the following list of Mayer’s collection is more than likely nowhere near complete: Rolex Explorer II, Patek Philippe 5396G L.E., Patek Philippe 5164 “Travel Timer”, Patek Philippe 5970, Rolex 6263 “Paul Newman” Daytona with a black dial, Rolex GMT with a blue-black bezel, IWC Big Pilot Reference 5002, a Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph 5970, as well as some Vintage Submariners.…

Sylvester Stallone

Sylvester Stallone has been a longtime fan and emissary of Panerai. Hardly anyone can pull off wearing its large size, unmistakable designs as well as this larger than life movie actor. He’s often seen with his Luminor Regatta 1950 Rattrapante. He also owns a Luminor PAM127 (depicted above), a Luminor Submersible Chrono, and an Egiziano Limited Edition. Along with his close connection to the Panerai brand, “Sly” is also a big Rolex fan and has a Submariner and a Day-Date in his collection of high end watches.…

Eric Clapton

Eric Clapton is a famous watch connoisseur and Rolex enthusiast. He’s often spotted wearing a Rolex Milgauss but also enjoys strapping on a Datejust in steel as well as a Day Date in yellow gold. Along with other Rolex models like a Turn-O-Graph, a Submariner and a GMT Master his collection once had a revered spot for a Patek Philippe Ref. 2499 in platinum, a model that has only ever been produced twice. In 2012, Clapton’s piece raised nearly 2.5 million GBP at a charity auction. He’s also auctioned off other watches from his personal collection for a good cause e.g. a prototype Yachtmaster Daytona, a Daytona “Paul Newman” with its typical contrasting colour scheme, black totalisers, and a light coloured face, as well as an albino Daytona version with a completely white dial.…
