Idris Elba Watch Collection

Anyone who has followed Idris Elba’s career would know that his moment is now.

From starring in HBO and BBC TV series, the British actor has built an impressive film resume that includes roles in the Avengers and Star Trek franchises. He recently shot down rumors of being the next James Bond… but being People Magazine’s 2018 Sexiest Man Alive probably won’t quiet down speculations.

One thing is certain: Idris Elba is the man of the hour. Here’s what he wears to keep time.

Rolex Datejust Oyster Bracelet

Aside from his acting chops and good looks, Idris’ ascent to leading man status can be attributed to his sleek style. He’s most often seen wearing his sharply-cut suits and great fitting streetwear with a classic steel watch – the Rolex Datejust.

Cartier Tank MC in stainless steel

For a man of his height and build, the Cartier Tank MC is perfect. The watch has the classic elements of a Cartier – the Art Deco design, clean dial, and blue cabochon – but with more heft on the wrist. A modern Tank, for a modern man. (photo by Sebastian Kim for GQ Magazine)

Rolex President Day-Date in 18k yellow gold

Idris is also a fan of Rolex’s ultimate status symbol – the Rolex President Day-Date. Despite being the most prestigious Rolex watch, the Day-Date can still be worn to add oomph to an otherwise casual outfit. Idris is able to pull of his choice of a yellow gold model and black dial, with a variety of looks from streetwear to designer suits.

IWC Pilot Mark XVIII in stainless steel

The IWC Pilot Mark XVIII features a design that has been reduced to the absolute essentials, but that doesn’t mean it’s boring. Featuring white Arabic numbers and minute markers against a black dial, the 40mm stainless steel watch has enough substance and size despite its clean and simple design. (photo by Victor Demarchelier for Esquire, July 2017)

Cartier Santos 100 in stainless steel

The Cartier Santos 100 was launched to commemorate the centennial of the brand’s iconic aviation watch. The square case, rounded angles, and exposed screws give the watch a blend of sport and sophistication – perfect for Idris’ laid-back but polished style.
