Which Watches are Celebrities Wearing, and Who Owns the Priciest Watch?

A study by Watch Pilot has revealed the most expensive celebrity watches, the watches and stars inspiring the most Google searches, and the brands and models most loved by celebrities.

Surprisingly, no female celebrities made the top 10, however, four big names did rank in the top 33 for their expensive timepieces:


Celebrity Name

Watch Brand

Watch Model Name



Ellen Degeneres


Rolex Daytona “John Player” Special



Kylie Jenner

Patek Philippe

Nautilus 5719/10G in White Gold



Angelina Jolie

Patek Philippe

Minute Repeater







  • Ellen Degeneres owns the most expensive out of the other female celebrities on the list, with her $750,903 Rolex. The Rolex Dayton ‘John Player’ special was the most expensive watch owned by any female celebrity at the time of research.
  • Kylie Jenner ranked 22nd on our list, with her $450,075 Patek Philippe. Despite her ‘self-made’ fortune, the reality star and beauty mogul missed out on the top spot by a considerable margin, although her Patek Philippe Nautilus 5719/10G in White Gold is worth a pretty penny.

Which Watches are Celebrities Wearing, and Who Owns the Priciest Watch?

Tim Harrison, watch expert and co-founder at Watch Pilot shares his three tips to scope out luxurious pieces worn by celebrities at an affordable price:

1. Scope out the dupes: A million-pound watch simply isn’t a practical, or realistic investment for many. However, there are considerably affordable alternatives out there from reputable brands that will provide the look and feel of some of the most expensive watches in the world, without the celebrity price tag.

2. Check out resale websites: If you are looking for nothing less than the real deal, there are plenty of resale websites where sellers list iconic watches at unmissable prices. With many sellers offering the original box and papers to go with the piece, grabbing an authentic watch for a fraction of the price is a no-brainer for many jewelry lovers.

3. Keep an eye out for deals: If second-hand watches aren’t your thing, keep an eye on premium watch sellers like Watch Pilot.
