Michael B. Jordan Loves Rolex Day-Date


After more than a decade in the business, actor Michael B. Jordan skyrocketed to fame thanks to roles in Creed II and Black Panther.

Aside from being leading man and action hero, Michael has also established himself as one of the best-dressed men in Hollywood. His secret? A good eye for tailoring combined with statement trends, and of course, a great timepiece. Check out the watches of Michael B. Jordan.


Rolex President Day-Date 40 Yellow Gold White Dial Mens Watch 228238


Rolex Day-Date 40

Michael has recently been spotted wearing two versions of the 40mm Rolex Day-Date – one in 18k yellow gold, and another in Rolex’s proprietary Everose gold.

The actor’s yellow gold Day-Date (ref. 228238) is the larger version of the classic all-gold Day-Date President – a recognized symbol of success and accomplishment. This watch was previously available only in a 36mm case, but in 2015, Rolex released a 40mm version, which we see on Michael. Its modern look is achieved with a sleeker profile, a sharper fluted bezel, a neat dial in a milky white hue, and faceted Roman numerals. Photo from We Are Basket on Instagram

Meanwhile, Michael’s choice Everose Day-Date (ref. 228235) features a brown dial, made more striking with its sunray finish and diamond indices. Both Day-Dates run on the Caliber 3255, which presents better accuracy and a 70-hour power reserve. They are also worn on a President bracelet equipped with ceramic inserts inside the links, enhancing its durability. Photo from GQ Magazine on Instagram




Piaget Polo Skeleton

Michael was named Piaget’s brand ambassador in 2016 and the relationship is still going strong. He is the face of Piaget Polo, a series of steel watches with understated looks, curved cases, and polished or satin-finished bracelets. Just like the sport from which it takes its name, the Polo embodies masculine elegance.



Most recently, Michael was spotted wearing the Polo Skeleton model. The storied Swiss manufacturer demonstrates its watchmaking prowess in this watch – the mechanism is reduced to the point of transparency by cutting away the bridges that support the moving parts, allowing the wearer to view the blue movement at work. Additionally, the Polo Skeleton is ultra-thin, measuring only 6.5mm, while the movement is just 2.4mm. Photos from Piaget on Twitter



Piaget Altiplano 18K Rose Gold Ultra-Thin Automatic Mens Watch GOA38131


Piaget Altiplano

Michael also loves watches from the Altiplano line, which are characterized by extremely flat cases and thinner movements.

His go-to Altiplano Ultra Thin watch is a minimalist’s dream. The 40mm 18k gold-plated casing was tailored to house the 1205P movement, which features Piaget’s ultra-thin self-winding mechanics. Featuring a silver dial with printed Art Deco-style indices, the Altiplano is the archetypal men’s dress watch.


On the red carpet, Michael ups the ante with the Altiplano High Jewelry. This 38mm timepiece is the world’s thinnest hand-wound mechanical high jewelry watch with a thickness of only 5.65mm. The white gold case and the black dial have been embellished with 38 baguette-cut diamonds, while pink accents offer a soft pop of color. About 370 gems were utilized in the creation of this opulent watch. Photo from GQ Magazine on Instagram



Piaget Polo 18K Yellow Gold Quartz Mens Watch 7131


Vintage Piaget Polo

Michael also has a very distinct vintage Piaget timepiece in his watch box – an 18k yellow gold Polo 7131 from 1979. This timepiece defines the decadence and jet-set lifestyle of the ‘70s and early ’80s with its solid gold construction, and seamless and beautifully free-flowing bracelet that wears like jewelry.


Designed by Yves Piaget with both men and women in mind – a concept that was pretty much unheard of at the time – it was an early favorite of Andy Warhol and Miles Davis and many other luminaries. The simple dial with polished hour beads was made to perfectly reflect the design of the case surrounding it, while bullet-shaped links add an interesting flair to the timeless design.
