Orlando Bloom’s Watch Collection

Orlando Bloom is well-known for his roles in Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean, but few people know that he’s also a watch aficionado.

While he reportedly has around 40 luxury watches, Bloom is so discreet that his hobby only became public knowledge when the watches were stolen by the notorious Bling Ring in 2009. Thankfully, the rare and expensive pieces were eventually recovered and returned to him.

They were almost gone, but we’re glad to see them on his wrist today. Here are some of his treasured timepieces:
br
br
Rolex GMT Master Vintagebr
The Rolex GMT-Master 1675 is the brand’s famed pilot watch created for Pan Am in 1959, with the characteristic red and blue “Pepsi” bezel. This original version is one of Rolex’s longest-running models, which was produced until 1980. Newer models of the Pepsi bezel remain a must-have for Rolex fans until today.

Rolex Explorer II Steve Mcqueen Vintagebr

The Rolex Explorer II 1655 goes by two names among watch enthusiasts – “Orange Hand” for its brightly-colored 24-hour hand, and “Steve McQueen” because it was rumored to have been worn by the famous movie star and racer. Orlando wears his on a leather fat-strap which gives it an even cooler look.

other models in his collection: Rolex Explorer 1016

Breitling Navitimer Vintagebr
Aside from being a movie star, Orlando is also an ambassador for Unicef, and has auctioned off some of his watches to benefit the organization. One of the watches that he offered for auction was the Breitling Navitimer 806 with a slide-rule pilot bezel, which was produced in the 1960’s.

Panerai Luminor Marina 8 Days Oro Rossobr

While he’s obviously a vintage Rolex fan, Orlando also has some sporty timepieces from other brands. One of his choice brands is Panerai. He has been spotted wearing thePanerai PAM 511 Luminor Marina 8 Days in Rose Gold which looks very smart on his wrist.

other models in his collection: Panerai Luminor 1950 “Fiddy” ref PAM127, Panerai Chrono Monopulsante 8 Days GMT ref PAM 317

 br
Iwc Big Pilots Steel Watch 5002br

Another one of his favorite brands is IWC, which has the cool factor he seems to be looking for in a watch. One of his IWC watches is the iconic IWC Big Pilot 5002, which comes in stainless steel and has a riveted leather strap that gives it a vintage-cool look.
