Tom Cruise

Rank: #52

Still one of the biggest movie stars in the world, Tom Cruise is a summer blockbuster staple with franchises like Mission Impossible. He’s also a fan of luxury watches with pieces from big brands along with lesser known ones. While Cruise famously wore a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date President in the 1988 film, Rain Man, in real life he’s been seen wearing a classic stainless steel Datejust.

When Robert Downey Jr. isn’t playing a superhero and raking in millions doing it, he’s also starring in hilarious videos for GQ magazine showing off his personal watch collection. Among his assortment of very cool timepieces are a couple of Rolex watches.
