The Watches of Jamie Foxx

IWC Portuguese Chronograph

Singer, actor, and producer Jamie Foxx began his career as a stand-up comedian, but he has comfortably crossed over to music and film. In fact, he even has an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and a BAFTA award for his role in the 2004 biographical film Ray.

We’ll be seeing more of Jamie this year as he is set to play the legendary heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson in a biopic. We’ll sure be on the lookout for any timepieces he’ll wear in the movie, but for now, let’s look back at the watches he has worn, on and off screen:


Rolex President Day-Date 18k Yellow Gold Diamond Watch 18038


Rolex President Day-Date in Yellow Gold

The watch that is constantly on Jamie’s wrist these days is the Rolex President Day-Date. The model he wears is an 18k yellow gold edition with matching champagne dial and diamond hour markers. While the Rolex Day-Date was created as a formalwear timepiece, many have taken to wearing it with casual wear, just like Jamie. Either way, wearing a Day-Date is always a power move.

Rolex Datejust with pavé diamonds

The most unique and eye-catching timepiece we’ve seen on Jamie so far is an iced-out Rolex Datejust with a blue dial. Diamonds pave the entire case, bracelet and yellow gold center links, while the blue dial is dotted with diamond hour markers. Video from The Hollywood Reporter on YouTube

Jamie also wears the ever versatile Rolex Submariner stainless steel model. Featuring a waterproof 40mm Oyster case, signature screw down crown, a sleek Cerachrom bezel, and a handsome black dial, this classic can be worn both in the great outdoors and while closing business deals. This watch is a staple in many watch boxes, and for good reason! Photo from Jamie Foxx on Twitter

Jamie starred alongside Colin Farrell in the film adaptation of the popular 1980s television series Miami Vice. To reflect the modern take on the television series, the film worked with IWC for its character’s timepieces.

Jamie wore a black dial IWC Portuguese Chrono throughout the film; while he switched to a silver dial version with rose gold hour markers for the press tour. IWC also created a limited edition IWC Portuguese Miami Vice watch, with the title of the film engraved on the case back. Only 50 pieces of these watches were made. Video from Rotten Tomatoes Movie Clips on YouTube

Jamie also starred in the modern adaptation of the Broadway favorite Annie. He played William “Will” Stacks, a modification of the plays’ Daddy Warbucks, a successful entrepreneur who’s also aspiring for public office. Always impeccably dressed, his character was always decked in suits, and he had the perfect watch to match – a Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso Calendar watch.
