Watches Worn on Billions

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 41mm Automatic Mens Watch 15400ST

Showtime’s Billions is both provocative and timely. Showing both the thrill and peril of chasing the American Dream, Billions gives us an inside look at the world of ultra-wealth, influence and corruption.

With many powerhouses – led by billionaire hedge fund king Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Damian Lewis) and well-connected U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti), you can be sure there are some rather fine watches on the show.

Let’s check them out:


Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Brown Dial Chronograph Watch 26470ST

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph

Bobby “Axe” Axelrod may be a billionaire, but his personal style belies his status. Often dressed in jeans, pullovers, shirts, and sneakers, Axe means business and needs clothes he can move around fast in. The only clue to his taste would probably be his timepieces.

He’s seen wearing a blue camouflage Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph in Season 4. Shown here is a more subdued brown dial blue inner bezel model. Video from Billions on Instagram




Cartier Roadster XL Chronograph Automatic Mens Watch W62019X6

A self-made man who built an empire, Axe enjoys all the trappings of success, but keeps his look down-to-earth.

On days off, he likes to wear his Cartier Roadster Chronograph. The stainless steel watch is not as flashy as we’d expect from a billionaire, but it’s a timeless statement of upscale style – and that’s exactly what Axe is all about. Photo from Billions on Instagram




Patek Philippe ref. 5270R Perpetual Calendar

Perhaps the most special watch spotting didn’t happen on the lead actors’ wrists. Taylor (Asia Kate Dillion), Axe Capital’s CIO, waltzed into a Fifth Avenue boutique in search of the legendary Patek Philippe ref. 5270R Perpetual Calendar. They purchased it on the spot. Photo from Sotheby’s

Axe has also been spotted with the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak. While it’s more understated than his usual Offshore watch, the classic Royal Oak is still a trailblazer among watches. First released in 1973, it’s the first luxury steel watch; its octagonal case and integrated bracelet also set it apart; and laid the foundation for the entire luxury sports watch genre.

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Blue Dial Chronograph Steel Mens Watch CAY211B

Tag Heuer Aquaracer

“Dollar” Bill Stearn (Kelly Aucoin) has a no-nonsense attitude when it comes to money, and that’s how he earned his monicker. He keeps the same no-frills attitude when it comes to style. His choice timepiece is the Tag Heuer Aquaracer: a robust and versatile dive watch and chronograph in one. Photo from Billions on Instagram
