Tom Cruise’s Collection of Watches


The 1980s to 2000s film roles that Tom Cruise played have made him a prominent American star. He is additionally renowned for his notorious affair with Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes.

When he was still in high school, Tom developed a fascination with acting, and his breakthrough roles in Risky Business and Top Gun propelled him to the top. Subsequently, Cruise garnered plaudits for his work in the Mission: Impossible show and the highly regarded film Jerry Maguire. He is now among the highest-paid actors in Hollywood.

In addition, Tom Cruise’s achievements list includes the notable fact that he is not just a very prominent actor and filmmaker but also a watch enthusiast and collector. His timepieces, both in everyday life as well as in films, have been an ongoing topic of debate. It mainly includes the finest examples of watchmaking—of course, in line with his tastes and preferences. 

Let’s explore some of the fine watches in Tom Cruise’s collection.

The architecture of this watch catches the sporty glamour of the Calibre de Cartier series with discreetly positioned sub-dials at three and nine o’clock and a correspondingly constrained calendar window at 6 o’clock. Moreover, the dial features an overly large XII Roman number, instantly identifying Cartier’s distinctive style.

In addition, the hours and minute indicators of this ref W7100045 are composed of black oxidized steel with a bright treatment and huge shape-like swords. Likewise, the central second display and the chronograph counter indexes are dark and lume-free.

  • Rolex Sky-Dweller 326934

Tom Cruise was initially seen sporting a 42-millimeter oystersteel and white golden Rolex Sky-Dweller 326934 with a striking black dial while in London in July 2022. The secondary time zone of this piece is shown on an off-center plate on the dial of the Sky-Dweller, while a rotating ring bezel controls its setting. Indeed, this is a special Rolex feature!

Originally, Rolex’s Sky-Dweller was made for world travelers, whilst the GMT-Master was made for pilots. Rolex had the incredible opportunity to create the Sky-Dweller without taking into account its historical context or connections to previous designs. Consequently, it built something completely original and unique for the brand.

  • Vacheron Constantin Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin 

Another spectacular watch in Tom Cruise’s collection is this Vacheron Constantin Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin featuring a blue dial. He was seen sporting the timepiece at the 75th annual Cannes Film Festival at the Palais des Festivals. 

 

 

This watch’s caliber 1120 QP/1 combines the beauty of ultra-slim architecture with the complication of a perpetual calendar. Besides, it features amazing movement, which is among the smallest in the industry at only 4.05 millimeters wide.

  • Cartier Santos WSSA0018

Apart from the Cartier Chronograph W7100045, Tom Cruise wore the Cartier Santos WSSA0018 watch in South Korea while promoting his newest movie, “Top Gun: Maverick.” The watch seemed appropriate for the campaign of an aviation film. Moreover, being among the earliest timepieces in history, the Santos was created at the aviator Alberto Santos Dumont’s request. 

 

 

While there are various sizes of Cartier Santos WSSA0018, Tom rocked in the giant model. Furthermore, Santos de Cartier’s flexible strap mechanism is a notable improvement over his Datejust. He can alternate between the bracelet and its complementary leather strap anytime. 

  • Rolex GMT-Master II’ Pepsi’ 126719BLRO

In July 2022, Tom Cruise was seen flaunting a white golden Rolex GMT-Master II’ Pepsi’ 126719BLRO featuring a blue dial while hanging out with Jeff Bezos.

This watch’s red and blue ceramic bezel inlay of the traditional two-color Cerachrom bezel is combined with the blue dial, first displayed at BaselWorld 2018. Furthermore, the casing has an oyster bracelet attached to it, making it a celebrity-approved timepiece. 

  • Bremont ALT1 C

Bremont ALT1-C is yet another unique watch seen on Tom Cruise’s wrist. Few individuals know that the celebrity has acquired and flown a number of different airplanes.

Therefore, it only seems reasonable that a somewhat new timepiece brand would capture an actor’s attention considering that Bremont was built by two ex-aviation engineers whose expertise is represented in their art. 

Furthermore, the ALT1-C chronometer has a dial that looks like the equipment on iconic airplane versions. This makes the watch even more distinguishable. 

 

Conclusion

Tom Cruise is not only a very prominent actor and producer but also a watch collector and enthusiast, which is a noteworthy addition to his list of accomplishments. Throughout the years, he has sported a variety of timepieces both on and off camera. Some of these items are from world-renowned brands such as Rolex, Cartier, and many others.
