David Beckham is known around the world for several things: being a retired (but highly successful) soccer player, his immense wealth, his chiseled good looks, and being married to Victoria Beckham, one-fifth of the legendary music act The Spice Girls. But did you also know that, in addition to being all of those things, David is also a very serious watch collector as well? Continue reading to learn more about David’s very extensive, one of a kind watch collection below!
What is David Beckham’s Favorite Watch From His Collection?
Out of all of the watches that he owns, David has been most frequently photographed wearing his Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea timepiece. With a depth rating of 12,800 or 4,000 feet in layman’s terms, this watch is truly made for the adventurous sportsman who still wants to have a discernible sense of style, whether he’s at work or at play. Well known for its Oysters Steel finish, this watch never looks out of place, no matter where it’s being worn.
What Other Kinds of Rolex Watches Does David Beckham Own?
>> Though the Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea is the watch that he is most often seen wearing, it is far from the only Rolex in his collection. He also owns the following watches as well: A Rolex Daytona, which comes in an Oyster bracelet and an Oyster Steel finish, has a white dial, and a diameter of 40 mm. Initially designed for endurance racing drivers, it is known to be one of the most accurate watches available on the market today.
>> He also owns a Rolex Yacht-Master II, which is the largest watch Rolex makes at 44 mm. It has a luminous blue ceramic bezel that rotates. The watch also has a specially made Regatta countdown timer for yacht racing. That makes sense, as it seems like a yacht would be a pretty reasonable place to find David Beckham hanging out on!

However, David Beckham doesn’t just have modern Rolex watches in his collection – he is also the proud owner of several vintage timepieces. In addition, he is often known for adding his own personal stylistic touch on these watches by customizing them with different watch straps.
He is known to have the following vintage Rolex watches in his collection, though we are sure there are some we just haven’t seen him photographed with yet in his home! These watches include:
>> He owns a lovely 18K Gold Rolex Datejust timepiece. In this instance, he has managed to customize the watch by replacing the Jubilee bracelet with a more vintage-looking brown leather strap instead.
>> He also owns an absolutely beautiful vintage gold and steel Rolex GMT Master, which has a root beer color scheme to it that makes it truly stand out – in a good way, that is! The watch also has a brown nipple dial and brown bezel on it. He has managed to customize this particular piece by replacing its default bracelet with a more earthy-looking brown leather fat strap.
>> He also owns a Rolex Submariner and replaced the standard-issue bracelet with a very svelte looking black leather strap, which adds more of a dress-casual feel to the piece.
>> Finally, he owns a customized Rolex Sea-Dweller, which he has professionally refinished in all black. It looks very modern and dressy, so it’s unlikely you’ll just casually see him wearing that one around the town!
What Other Types of Watches Does David Beckham Have in His Watch Collection?
For somebody as well-heeled and traveled as David Beckham is, he’s certainly not going to just buy a few Rolexes and call it a day. One of his most prized pieces is a very rare Patek Philippe Grand Complications Celestial watch. The dial is quite literally a work of art, as it has a luminous sapphire astronomical display that depicts the movement of the night sky. This is a very rare watch indeed, and we’re sure that David only brings it out on special occasions.
Also, David has now become a spokesperson for the Tudor Watch Company, so it’s likely you are going to start seeing him wear more timepieces from that brand in the near future. He has been recently photographed wearing a Tudor Heritage Black Bay in two-tone black and gold. The piece is a modern update of their diver’s watches, which date back to the 1970s.
