Nautical Watches, As Seen on Stars

It’s always nice to spend your time off on a boat, but the depths and motion around it can be perilous for your watch. So whether you’re actually speeding around the regatta or simply vegging on the yacht, a sailing watch is always good to have.

We’ve rounded up 5 nautical watches, that look equally cool on land, and the celebrities who love them:

Mark Wahlberg likes cutting-edge watches, and the Rolex Yacht-Master II can’t be more perfect for him. The ruggedly handsome bright-blue watch comes with a waterproof case and a programmable, flyback regatta countdown timer that allows the wearer to count anywhere from 1 to 10 minutes.

Panerai Luminor 1950 44mm Rattrapante Regatta LE Watch PAM00286

Sylvester Stallone is known as a big Panerai fan; and he chose this particular watch for the entire cast to wear on the movie The Expendables. Without the Hollywood connection, the Panerai Luminor Rattrapante Regatta is still a standout watch – it was created as a special edition for the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge, a race of international regattas for vintage and classic sailboats. Video from Action Reload on YouTube




Breguet Marine Royale Rose Gold Leather Strap Mens Watch 5847BR

Carmelo Anthony loves his Breguet Marine Royal for its beautifully done details – a solid, tank-like and fluted case, guilloché-patterned dial, and light blue markers and arrow hand. Aside from its good looks though, the watch comes with 300 meter water resistance, an alarm designed to operate under water, and a 45-hour power reserve. Photo from Carmelo Anthony on Instagram




Omega Seamaster 300m Chronograph Automatic Steel Mens Watch 2599.80.00

Liev Schreiber relies on the Omega Seamaster for his fishing trips; and it’s a watch that truly delivers. The scalloped-edge of the bezel provides enhanced grip, while the 41.5 mm case and luminous hour markers and hands provide great legibility in the dark. It also comes with a 30-minute and 12-hour recorder. Photo from Liev Schreiber on Instagram




Tag Heuer Aquaracer Black Dial Steel Mens Watch CAK211A

Hugh Jackman is versatile and approachable, and so is his choice watch. The Tag Heuer Aqua Racer may not yet have the heritage of other sailing watches, but its no-nonsense functions and attainable price tag make it a popular choice. The ceramic bezel, countdown timer, and chronograph feature prove useful for timing laps both on sea and on land.
