Martial artist and Brit actor Jason Statham has become Hollywood’s signature anti-hero. And while he may always be in high-octane, car-chasing scenes and even doing his own stunts, The Fast and The Furious actor always looks stylish while doing so.
A self-confessed lover of bespoke shirts and suits, vintage cars, and luxury watches, Jason proves that even bad guys have what it takes to look good. Here are some of the watches he wears off-duty:
With equal passion for beautiful cars and watches, the Jaeger LeCoultre Valentino Rossi watch is a natural choice for Jason. A tribute to the Italian racing champion of the same name, the watch is both a motorsports collectible and top-tier watch. Jason wore it on his Men’s Health magazine cover.
Jason’s collection won’t be complete without the ultimate adventurer’s watch – the Rolex Explorer. He wears the vintage “Orange Hand” Rolex Explorer II reference 1655, which was originally introduced in 1971. Much like his cars, he likes finding watches that “are absolutely pristine from the vintage era”.
Jason likes his watches vintage and tough. From left: Patek Philippe Nautilus 5980, vintage Rolex Daytona, and IWC Doppelchronograph. Watch photos from kevincreign and sn_tong77 on Instagram, Jason’s photo from his Instagram account.
Another robust Rolex in his collection is the quintessential diver’s watch – the Rolex Submariner. So versatile is the watch that Jason has not only been spotted wearing it off-duty, he also gave it screen time in some of his films like Killer Elite (2011) and Parker (2013).
Jason also loves his Panerai watches, and has worn several of them on-screen — such as the Panerai Luminor Chrono Daylight in Transporter 2 (2005), and the Panerai Radiomir 8 Days Ceramic in The Fate of the Furious (2017). On regular days, he favors a Panerai Luminor GMT.
