Kanye West’s Watch Collection

Kanye West Watch Collection

|
Few musicians can command attention as well as Kanye West. While his political views and high-profile relationship may be divisive, we can all agree on his vast influence on music and fashion.

The rapper-slash-fashion-mogul has a lot of hits under his belt, and that includes his choice of timepieces. Here’s what we’ve spotted on his wrist, from classic Rolex to one-of-a-kind haute horology pieces:

 

Day-Date Yellow Gold

Rolex President Day-Date

It seems that every rap artist has at least one Rolex watch; and the Rolex President Day-Date is the most commonly spotted model. The watch of many US presidents, dignitaries, and world leaders, the Day-Date is recognized worldwide as a symbol of success and personal achievement.

 

Daytona Everose

Rolex Cosmograph Daytona

Kanye seems to prefer versatile watches; and this Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is one of them. Sophisticated yet edgy, the Everose gold version of the classic racing watch looks good under the cuff and is still durable enough for a day at the tracks.

 


 

AP Royal Oak and Cartier
Aside from his Rolex watches, Kanye also owns an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Skeleton Perpetual Calendar in yellow gold and a very rare Cartier Crash. The Crash was designed by Jean-Jacques Cartier in 1967 and is directly inspired by a Cartier watch scorched in a car accident.

 

Submariner Vintage

Rolex Submariner

Kanye also likes adding a unique touch to his watches. He had his Rolex Submariner customized into a blacked-out PVD version. To get the black-on-black look without altering your timepiece, try matching your Submariner with a leather or nylon bracelet.

 

Yachtmaster II Yellow Gold

Rolex Yacht-Master II

 

If you want an eye-catching watch that also packs on lots of features, then the Rolex Yacht-Master II is the one for you. Currently Rolex’s largest timepiece at 44mm big, the Yacht-Master II has technical abilities to match its heft – including a regatta timer with mechanical memory and a Ring Command Bezel that controls the movement.

 

Day-Date II Everose

Rolex President Day-Date II

Launched in 2008, the Day-Date II is a bigger version of the classic Rolex President watch. Matched with a construction in Rolex’s patented Everose gold, this watch has a distinct warmth and sheen that’s sure to get people talking.
