It’s no surprise that Gordon Ramsay has a strong admiration for Rolex. He owns a significant number of watches from the renowned Swiss brand. Among Ramsay’s understated Rolex timepieces is his vintage Rolex Explorer II Ref. 16550 with a cream dial, which was manufactured in the mid-1980s. The value of this vintage watch is approximately $30,000.

2. Rolex Submariner 1680

Gordon Ramsay is often spotted wearing a Rolex watch, and one of his favorites is the Rolex Submariner 1680. This model was produced in 1967 and marked the first time the Submariner featured a date display and a “cyclops” lens on the dial, magnifying the date by 2.5 times for easier reading. Referred to as the RED SUB, there are six different variations, known as “Marks,” three of which display depth in meters and feet (“METER FIRST”) and the other three in feet and meters (“FEET FIRST”). Ramsay remains a true fanboy of vintage Rolexes, as he has been seen sporting a timeless classic, the vintage Rolex Submariner Ref. 1680, fitted with a brown leather strap. Its current market value on the secondary market typically begins at approximately $23,000.

3. Rolex Submariner 14060

Rolex Submariner 14060

Gordon Ramsay possesses not just one but several Rolex Submariner watches. Among these, the ref 14060 is considered to be the final version of the “classic” Rolex Submariners. The watch’s lack of a date on the dial, an aluminum bezel inserts, and a pre-Super case with a Maxi dial contribute to its classic status. In contrast, more recent Submariner models have many more features. The Rolex Submariner 14060 is an excellent diver’s watch, constructed from stainless steel and featuring an Oyster bracelet. It is water-resistant to a depth of 300m. This watch is a perfect fit for Gordon Ramsay’s style.

4. Rolex Submariner (Ref. 1680/8)

In addition to Ramsay’s steel Submariner 1680, he also possesses a vintage 18k yellow gold Rolex Submariner Date with a unique “Nipple” dial (Ref. 1680/8). These vintage timepieces can be purchased for approximately $50,000 in the second-hand market. 

5. Everose Rolex Yacht-Master Ref. 116655

Gordon Ramsay has been seen wearing contemporary Rolexes recently. Among them, the Everose Rolex Yacht-Master Ref. 116655 on a rubber strap is a personal favorite. This watch rolex gmt master ref 116655 exudes a sporty yet refined aesthetic, with its black bezel and rubber strap complementing the gold casing. On the secondary market, a rose gold Rolex Yacht-Master fetches a price of approximately $35,000.

6. Rolex Submariner Ref. 116619

In Gordon Ramsay watch collection of Rolex watches, the most expensive piece is the Rolex Submariner Ref. 116619 with a blue dial, which has been spotted on his wrist. This particular Submariner is not an ordinary one but rather a unique model known as the “Smurf” in the watch-collecting community due to its blue bezel and blue dial. Made of white gold blue dial, the Smurf is currently not being produced by Rolex, but a similar model with a blue bezel and black dial is available. However, if you’re interested in purchasing a Smurf with a blue dial, it can cost around $50,000 in the secondary market.

7. IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition

Unlike some other celebrities, Gordon Ramsay isn’t a fan of extravagant watches. While Gordon Ramsay wear a few gold Rolexes, they are usually simple and not decorated with diamonds. This preference for understated timepieces extends to other brands he owns as well. One of the watches he has been seen wearing is the IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition “Tribute To Mark XI” Ref. IW327007. Although it is a very attractive watch, it is also one of the most basic pilot watches that IWC offers. It has only three hands and a date complication, but it looks fantastic on the green-olive canvas strap it comes with. This particular luxury watch was limited to 1948 pieces and can be found for a reasonable price of $5,750 in the secondary market.

8. Breitling Aeromarine Chrono Avenger M1 Ref. E73360

Watch collector Gordon Ramsay is a huge fan of aviation or pilot’s watches, besides just dive watches. Along with his IWC pilot’s watch, he also possesses a Breitling Aeromarine Chrono Avenger M1 Ref. E73360, which is made of titanium. However, out of all of Ramsay’s watches, this Breitling is our least favorite. The yellow dial on this particular watch is lacking. The watch with the yellow dial is currently priced at approximately $3,000 on the secondary market.

9. Omega Seamaster Professional Chronometer Ref. 25318000

Gordon Ramsay’s collection includes an Omega timepiece. Upon examination of his assortment, it is apparent that Ramsay has a proclivity for dive and pilot watches. It follows logically that Gordon Ramsay would possess a steel Omega Seamaster Professional Chronometer 300m/1000ft Ref. 25318000. Although it is an earlier version of the Seamaster, it is available for purchase on the secondary market for approximately $2,500.

10. JS Watch Company Blue Sif NART 1948

Lastly, this watch must be the most unique possession from his watch collection. This luxury watch was made by the JS Watch Company, a small watch company located in Reykjavik, Iceland. Due to his profession, Ramsay had to travel to many places in the world. And reportedly, his favorite place to visit is Iceland. During one of his frequent trips, he visited JS Watch Company and purchased a timepiece. The watch Gordon Ramsay acquired was the JS Watch Company Blue Sif NART 1948, which comes with a tanned calf strap. It is a timepiece made in honor of the Icelandic Coast Guard, which has been safeguarding the North Atlantic seas for more than 60 years, and NART stands for the North Atlantic Rescue Timer. The watch has a Swiss Automatic movement, although the exact model is unknown, and costs $3,034. If you wish to own one, you can buy it from JS Watch Company’s website.


When it comes to the best chefs in the world, Gordon Ramsay is definitely on top of the list. From his kitchen to his wardrobe, he is a man of perfectionism. And it truly reflects his watch collection as well. Although he’s a big fan of vintage Rolexes watches, mostly gold watches, he also has several other timepieces like Breitling and Omega. For any watch enthusiast, Ramsay’s watch collection is “absolutely delicious”.
