Ellen DeGeneres Rolex Collection

rolex yachtmaster everose and white gold

Ellen DeGeneres is one of the most-liked TV personalities. The actress, comedian, philanthropist, and host is most famous for her humor and dance moves on The Ellen Show, but to watch collectors, she’s one serious Rolex fan.

She’s never without a watch on her show and in just about every public appearance, and she’s one of the very few ladies in Hollywood with a serious interest in watches.

Here’s what we gathered about her collection – and we have to say we’re very impressed:br


Rolex Explorer II Steve Mcqueen Vintage Steel Mens Watch 1655

Ellen has a collection of both vintage and modern Rolexes, and one of her highly collectible ones is the Rolex Explorer II “Steve McQueen” 1655 watch. Designed for cave explorers, it has an orange arrow-shaped hand to help the wearer see in the dark. Video from The Ellen Show on YouTube





Rolex GMT Master II Black Dial Ceramic Bezel Steel Mens Watch 116710

Ellen also has the very versatile and easy travel companion, the Rolex GMT-Master II. Suitable for both globetrotting and more formal occasions, Ellen has several models of the GMT-Master II: the Pepsi red and blue bezel and the 18k yellow gold with anniversary green dial.

Models in her collection: 116710, 116719 (Pepsi), 116718LN (Anniversary green dial), and 1675 (Blueberry Bezel). Photo from Ellen Degeneres on Instagram and Video from The Ellen Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live on YouTube

Rolex Submariner Smurf White Gold Blue Dial Bezel Watch 116619

Here’s one of the more unique pieces in her collection: the “Smurf” Rolex Submariner 18k in White Gold and Blue Dial Ceramic Bezel. Being a Sub, this watch is made with diving in mind but it also looks right at home with Ellen’s preppy ensembles. Video from Qantas on YouTube




Patek Philippe Aquanaut Travel Time Steel Mens Watch 5164A

Other watches in Ellen DeGeneres’ Collection: Ellen may be a clear Rolex fan, but she also has several Patek Philippe Aquanaut and Nautilus watches in her collection. Photos from Christie’s and Phillips and Videos from Ellen DeGeneres on Instagram and the Ellen Show on YouTube


Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 White and Green Dial






Rolex Yachtmaster 40mm Rose Gold Oysterflex Bracelet Mens Watch 116655

One of the great things about Ellen’s collection is she makes sure to get her hands on rare or high-tech pieces. She has the Rolex Everose Yachtmaster with an Oysterflex strap, the first Rolex to carry the beautifully-engineered, not-just-any-rubber-strap. Video from the Ellen Show on YouTube




Rolex Daytona Ceramic Bezel White Dial Steel Mens Watch 116500

Now we’ve come to Ellen’s obvious favorite: the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. She has been photographed frequently with it, wearing at least 7 different styles both vintage and modern, so it’s safe to say that she loves the Daytona.

models in her collection: 116500 (White Dial Black Cerachrom Bezel), 116515 (Everose Black dial), 116505IVSO (Ivory Dial), 116518LN (Yellow Gold Panda Dial Oysterflex Strap). Videos from The Ellen Show on YouTube




Rolex Cosmograph Daytona John Player Special Yellow Gold Ref. 6264

Ellen has also been quoted as saying that the Daytona is “The only watch I wear. I have both vintage and new models.” It may be a stretch to say she only wears Daytona, but she does have a clear preference for it – in fact, she has some holy grail models in her collection – the 6241, 6263, 6264, 6265, and 6239.  Photos from Christie’s, Phillips, and Amsterdam Vintage Watches on Instagram and Video from The Ellen Show on YouTube
