Sofía Vergara supplements her day job at ABC’s hit sitcom, Modern Family, with endorsement deals and celebrity fragrances. As the industry’s top earning television actress, she can certainly afford to spend on beautiful things including a couple of Rolex watches. We’ve spotted her wearing a 36mm stainless steel Datejust with a diamond bezel, as well as, a 40mm yellow gold Daytona chronograph with a black dial.

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.

Robert Downey Jr.
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. Specifically a Milgauss with the green sapphire, a customized GMT-Master II, and perhaps most appropriately, the green Submariner “Hulk.”

In addition to collecting movie credits, Wahlberg also accumulates awesome Rolex watches. His Rolex collection includes the very large yellow gold Yacht-Master II with the bright blue ceramic bezel.
