IF YOU HAVE TAKEN anything away from the Netflix docuseries Beckham—the four-part series detailing David Beckham’s rise to balling stardom—you’d know that Becks is many things: a footballing god; a style icon; the king of haircuts; and a savvy businessman. But among all his accolades and praises, little does the world know of Beck’s serious penchant for nice watches.
Surprise, Beckham loves watches. And while it may come as little surprise to some, especially considering he has been Tudor’s brand ambassador since 2017, Becks has racked up a pretty serious collection over the years; one that spans from Rolex all the way to Jacob & Co.
While Beckham’s watch collection is long and extensive, here are our (DB)7 favourite pieces in his repertoire.
TUDOR Black Bay Chrono S&G
Affordable, achievable yet exceptionally cool, the Tudor Black Bay Chronograph is a seriously underrated timepiece among today’s lineup of chronograph pieces. Beckham has been seen wearing the Tudor Black Bay Chrono S&G on a ton of occasions in recent years, like at Wimbledon (pictured).
PATEK PHILIPPE Sky Moon Celestial 6102P
This piece backs up Beckham’s taste (and passion) for serious watches. The half a million dollar timepiece by Patek Philippe was first released in 2015 and showcases the luxury Swiss watch brand’s expertise in grand complications.
ROLEX Day-Date 40
Becks has been spotted in recent times wearing the alluring Rolex Day-Date 40 in Everose gold with a white olive green dial, roman numeral hour indices and diamond-set bezel.
JACOB & CO Global 3
Beckham might be a Tudor/Rolex man, but his collection extends as far as Jacob & Co, the revolutionary watch and jewellery designer from New York City. In this case, Beckham sports the Global 3, which features five different small subdials all with their own crown. The watch also showcases the wearer’s home time as well as times in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Paris.
ROLEX Custom Sea-Dweller Deepsea
This blacked-out Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea is actually customised and designed by Rolex, for David Beckham—something the brand very rarely does for its VIP clientele.
TUDOR Heritage Chrono Blue
While Becks might be a Tudor ambsaddor, he’s also a massive fan of the brand, and is often seen wearing vintage or vintage-inspired pieces from the archives—like this Tudor Heritatge Chrono Blue, which was inspired by the Tudor Montecarlo Ref. 7149/0.
TUDOR Black Bay 58 18K
Arguably one of the greatest watches ever designed, the Tudor Black Bay 58 is an iconic timepiece that will stand the test of time. Here, Beck’s is wearing the ethereal Black Bay 58 in 18k gold, which will set you back a cool $25,000.
