The Watches in The Wolf of Wall Street

See the updated version of this article here: The Watches in The Wolf of Wall Street.

The movie The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) tells the story of Jordan Belfort, a banker and stock broker who became embroiled in financial fraud and a life of excess.

The over-the-top experiences of Belfort, plus the antics in the black comedy film, are enough to keep you hooked for its three-hour run – but the fantastic watches sure make for some distracting moments.

Here’s a rundown of the watches in the movie:



Rolex GMT Master 18K Yellow Gold Mens Watch 16718

Leonardo DiCaprio played Belfort, the titular Wolf whose life of non-stop partying and eventual downfall was depicted in the film. DiCaprio sported several watches in the movie, but one that really stood out was a yellow gold piece with a black dial, which his character threw onto a crowd.

Most watch enthusiasts would bet it’s a yellow gold Rolex GMT Master, and it very well could have been, except DiCaprio is Tag Heuer ambassador. What he actually wore was a very similar-looking Tag Heuer 1000 Series, which has been discontinued since 1992. Photos from British GQ, WatchCharts, and The Wolf of Wall Street on Twitter

Jonah Hill played Donnie Azoff, a character based on Jordan Belfort’s real-life business partner and friend. He was alongside the main character as they both lived a non-stop party lifestyle that generated so much cash. Of course, he wore a key Rolex timepiece – a yellow gold Rolex Daytona to be exact.

Matthew McConaughey played Belfort’s boss Mark Hanna in the film, who introduces the Wolf to the world of insane wealth. In one of the most memorable scenes in the movie, he teaches Belfort the “Wall Street chant” over lunch. Look closely and you’ll spot an 80’s two-tone Rolex Datejust with a Jubilee bracelet. Video from Paramount Pictures on YouTube

For a movie about high-powered stock brokers, The Wolf of Wall Street really delivered on the wrist candy. Its director Martin Scorsese is a Rolex ambassador and long-time watch enthusiast so it comes as no surprise. Aside from watches worn by the main characters, you’ll also spot a few IWC Big Pilot watches among the supporting cast. Video from Paramount Pictures on YouTube
