Nicolas Cage’s Watch Collection
Nicolas Cage was once ubiquitous in Hollywood, starring in hits like National Treasure, Con Air, and Leaving Las Vegas. These days, you’ll find him in mostly obscure and indie roles, resulting in a wildly varied range of roles throughout his career.
Perhaps his career choices also reflect his taste in watches. Nicolas has made some outlandish choices – such as a leopard print, diamond pave Rolex Daytona – but for the most part, his choice Rolex watches are classic and timeless.
Let’s check out his best Rolex watches, in movies and in real life.
The Rolex Submariner has been around since 1952; and Rolex keeps improving its excellent design. This ref 16610 is the last of the Submariners to have the aluminum bezel insert, as opposed to the upgraded Cerachrom ceramic bezel.
It remains popular among those who love the functionality of the Submariner, but seek its classic tapered size and rugged look.
Rolex is more famous for its tool watches, but you shouldn’t sleep on the Rolex Cellini line of dress watches. They show a softer side to Rolex, but the features are as sophisticated as they can get.
The Cellini Moonphase is the first Rolex to bring back the moonphase complication to their watches since the 1950s. It’s not just any moonphase feature – it’s cycle will stay correct for the next 122 years.
Nicolas has also worn Rolex in many of his movies. Here he is wearing a platinum Rolex President Day-Date in the 2005 film, Lord of War.

The ultimate status symbol, the Rolex Day-Date will not be missing from a famous actor’s collection. Nicolas has the classic 36mm Day-Date in 18k yellow gold construction.
The black dial with gold baton hour markers create a stunning contrast that will leave a lasting impression.
The Rolex Sky-Dweller is a powerhouse timepiece. Protected by up to 14 patents, the Sky-Dweller has a dual-time feature, a calendar wheel that tells the date, and a 24-hour disc that distinguishes daytime and night-time hours.
Not to mention that all those features come in a massive 44mm sized watch. This is a timepiece that’s hard to miss.
In one of Nicolas’ biggest films, National Treasure, his character Ben Gates wears a Rolex Submariner quite prominently. He also wore a Submariner in the film’s sequel, National Treasure: Book of Secrets.
