Tim Allen’s Rolex Watches

Rolex Submariner Ceramic Bezel and Rolex Yachtmaster White Gold

Every 90s kid would recognize comedian Tim Allen as Tim Taylor on Home Improvement or as Santa in the Disney Santa Clause trilogy. He’s still very much around — if not in the Fox sitcom, Last Man Standing, he’s being featured for his amazing vintage car collection.

While he has a wide and rather eclectic taste in automobiles, ranging from classic convertibles to muscle cars, his preference in watches is more subdued. Tim owns a small collection of Rolex, but each one is nothing short of iconic. Check out the Rolex watches of Tim Allen.


Rolex GMT Master II 18K Yellow Gold Black Dial Mens Watch 116718


Rolex GMT Master II Yellow Gold

The watch most often spotted on Tim’s wrist is the 18k yellow gold, Cerachrom bezel, black dial GMT Master II. The ref 116718 debuted in BaselWorld 2005 and is part of the first generation of Rolex watches to be upgraded with broader lugs, larger crown guards, Maxi dials, and the Cerachrom ceramic bezel.

Not only is it a stunning statement piece, but it’s also a robust and reliable watch. Being a GMT Master, it has a 24-hour bezel that can be read with the green GMT hand to sync with local or military time. Video from Jimmy Kimmel Live on YouTube




Rolex Submariner Date Black Dial Steel Mens Watch 16610


Rolex Submariner Date

Tim wears the stainless steel bezel version of the Rolex Submariner Date. The ref 16610 is a successful edition of the Submariner and remained in production from the 1980s until 2010. Durable and stylish, the versatile all-steel black dial reference is appropriate in any setting, whether you’re heading to work or going diving. Water-resistant up to 1,000 feet, the Submariner can be worn safely during underwater excursions.

Tim has worn his Rolex Submariner several times on screen, like in his sitcom, Last Man Standing, and in the movie, The Six Wives of Henry Lefay. Photo from Last Man Standing on Twitter





Rolex Daytona Zenith Movement Inverted 6 Watch 16520


Rolex Cosmograph Daytona

Here, we see Tim wearing a white dial, steel bezel Rolex Cosmograph Daytona in the 1999 movie, Galaxy Quest. Before the 2000s, the stainless steel Rolex Daytona ran on the automatic Caliber 4030, based on the Zenith El Primero’s Caliber 400. This earned the ref 16520 a special place in Rolex’s history as the first Daytona to run on a self-winding movement.

The Zenith has been replaced by an in-house caliber thereafter, but this model remains a cult favorite for its use of the El Primero movement and its stunning stainless steel finish. Video from Rotten Tomatoes Movieclips on YouTube




Rolex Datejust Steel Yellow Gold Silver Dial Vintage Mens Watch 16013


Rolex Datejust Vintage Steel Yellow Gold

The Rolex Datejust has been immortalized in film as the go-to everyday timepiece of the accomplished man. In Home Improvement, Tim’s character wore a stainless steel and yellow gold Datejust. The classic finish makes it suitable for all occasions, from going to the office, around town, or even for formal events. You really can’t go wrong with a good old-fashioned Rolex Datejust. Video from Entertainment Tonight on YouTube
