Without a doubt, one of the most well-known watch enthusiasts and collectors is John Mayer. While he may be better known to non-watch enthusiasts as a great singer and guitar player, in the watch community, he is envied for his impressive luxury watch collection. Mayer wears everything from a Pepsi GMT and classic Submariner to a rainbow bezel Cosmograph Daytona on his wrist, proving that he boasts a pretty eclectic collection.


U2’s Bono has been known to wear a quite a few Rolex watches in the many years that he has been in the public eye.

Maroon 5 is currently topping the charts with hits such as Girl Like you and What Lovers Do. Their frontman, Adam Levine, may be more well-known for his vast vocal range and rocker style, but to the watch community, he is more notorious for his enviable Rolex collection. In recent years, the rocker has been spotted wearing everything from a Paul Newman Daytona to a gold Day-Date. Avid collectors were also surprised to see a vintage Submariner on his wrist which, as a model, boasts an interesting history.
“Produced in 1953, the Rolex Submariner was first introduced in 1954 at Basel Watch Fair. The model comes in Oystersteel, white & yellow gold, and two-tone metals with date and no date variants. Made famous by James Bond films, this iconic sports watch has a 40mm case size and functions as a dive watch. Suggested retail price starts at $7,500 as of 2018.”


Jay-Z is one of the most successful musicians in recent years, amassing an unbelievable net worth. So it should come as no surprise that the rapper also boasts an impressive luxury watch collection that includes highly coveted models such as a newer model Daytona ref. 116500 and a platinum Day-Date II. It’s also rumored that wife Beyoncé purchased the $5 million Hublot Big Bang for the rapper several years ago as a birthday present, further adding to the immense value of his already impressive collection.
