Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen was the highest paid TV actor during his prime. Following his personal struggles he has recently opened up to press about gaining sobriety and many eagerly await his return to acting.
Behind the scenes, Charlie is also well known for his extensive watch collection, composed mainly of dress watches and Patek Philippe pieces. We went watch spotting and checked out the actor’s watches through the years:

Charlie’s most important Patek Philippe is the very rare vintage Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar reference 2438/1. Produced in the 1950s, the 2438/1 is the first water resistant perpetual calendar produced by the brand; and only 65 pieces are known to exist. Photos from Phillips
Charlie used to wear a Rolex Yacht-Master Steel Platinum watch on Two and a Half Men. The reference 16622 combines a steel construction with a platinum rotatable time-lapse bezel. With a water resistance of up to 100m, it also offers water protection when worn aboard yachts and competing in regattas.
Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar
This 18k yellow gold Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar features three subsidiary dials — one for the days of the month, days of the week, and months of the year. At 6 o’clock is also an aperture for the moon phases, all harmoniously arranged on a matte silver dial. Applied yellow gold indexes and dauphine hands complete the sophisticated timepiece.
Among Charlie’s contemporary Patek Philippe watches is the ref 5970 Perpetual Calendar Chronograph in platinum. Produced from 2004 to 2011, the 5970 has a 40mm case that’s a bit on the thick side and it’s quite popular among watch collectors for its generous size. He also owns a similar model with Roman numeral hour markers. Photo from Phillips

Charlie also wears a Patek Philippe Nautilus, specifically a blue dial reference 5712 Moonphase Power Reserve. Launched in 2006, it was one of the models released by Patek Philippe to celebrate the 30th year of the Nautilus.
Patek Philippe Calatrava
Charlie also wears a time-only Patek Philippe — the Calatrava. The Calatrava is considered as the quintessential Patek Philippe; and even the quintessential dress watch. Featuring nothing but a round case, stick markers and dauphine hands, the Calatrava’s appeal really lies in its simplicity.
Charlie also has a hand-wound IWC Portuguese watch. The steel timepiece has a black dial, silver tone hands, and Arabic numerals, plus a seconds subdial above 6 o’clock. Another understated but elegant timepiece that truly belongs to his collection.
Jaeger LeCoultre Master Memovox
Aside from being a sophisticated dress watch, the Jaeger LeCoultre Master Memovox also has a built-in alarm. The two separate crowns allow the wearer to manually wind the watch and set the alarm and timekeeping parts of the watch separately.
