Last Updated on March 17, 2024 by Umer Malik

As per Trstdly, Ed Sheeran may appear to have a casual style, often sporting t-shirts and jeans during his concerts. However, the Grammy award-winning singer has an impressive watch collection that shows off his luxurious taste and passion for horology. Sheeran’s watch collection is estimated to be worth over $6 million, with timepieces from brands like Rolex, Patek Philippe, Richard Mille, and Audemars Piguet.

The British singer-songwriter first gained an interest in watches when he received a ToyWatch as a gift from a friend before hitting stardom. He appreciated the ability to customize the straps and mix and match the colors. Even now, with an extensive collection of luxury watches, Sheeran says the ToyWatch remains one of his most treasured pieces due to its sentimental value.

Over the years, Sheeran has acquired some of the most sought-after timepieces in the world. His collection demonstrates his fondness for vibrant colors and complications. Let’s take a look at some of the standout watches spotted on the wrist of the “Shape of You” singer.

Rolex Daytona Rainbow

The Rolex Daytona is one of the most popular chronographs, with long waitlists to get one brand new. Sheeran owns a special edition Rolex Daytona Rainbow reference 116599RBOW, which certainly makes a colorful statement. The watch features 36 baguette-cut sapphires on the bezel in rainbow hues along with 11 sapphire hour markers. The rainbow theme continues with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds set into the lugs and crown guards. This dazzling Rolex perfectly complements Sheeran’s tattoo-adorned arms.

Tiffany Blue Patek Philippe Nautilus

In 2021, Patek Philippe and Tiffany & Co. celebrated 170 years of partnership by releasing a limited edition Tiffany Blue Nautilus reference 5711/1A-018. Only 170 pieces were made, and Sheeran secured one of the coveted steel sports watches. The iconic Nautilus sports watch is already difficult to come by at retail. With its distinct robin egg blue dial that pays homage to the Tiffany & Co. brand color, the watch caused a frenzy. Other celebrities like Jay-Z and Leonardo DiCaprio also own this watch, which now fetches millions at auction.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra-Thin

Royal Oak watches are known for their octagonal shape, integrated bracelet, and “Grande Tapisserie” patterned dial. Sheeran added a stunning and rare Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra-Thin reference 26522 to his collection. Launched in 2019 as a limited edition of 100 pieces, the watch features a minimalist matte black aesthetic. The openworked movement is visible through the sapphire crystal and black dial with the signature “Tapisserie Evolutive” motif. White gold-plated hour markers provide a nice contrast along with the luminescent Royal Oak hands.

Richard Mille RM27-03

Richard Mille timepieces are recognized for their avant-garde, racing-inspired designs. Sheeran owns the RM27-03 Tourbillon designed in collaboration with tennis legend Rafael Nadal. Only 50 pieces exist worldwide, making this watch incredibly exclusive. The red, yellow, and orange colors represent the clay courts of the French Open tennis tournament. Sheeran wore the watch during a 2021 performance at KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball.

Richard Mille RM 38-01 Tourbillon G-Sensor

Sheeran seems to have an affinity for Richard Mille as he has been spotted wearing numerous references. At the 2017 MTV Music Awards, he wore the RM 38-01 Tourbillon G-Sensor when accepting awards for Artist of the Year and Best Male Video. This watch was originally created for professional golfer Bubba Watson. The quartz-powered timepiece has one of the most advanced G-force indicators made by Richard Mille along with a manual-winding tourbillon.

Patek Philippe Split-Seconds Chronograph Reference 5370P

Beyond Richard Mille and Rolex, Sheeran has a well-rounded collection with multiple Patek Philippe references. He wore the 5370P split-seconds chronograph to the Songwriters Hall of Fame 48th Annual Induction in 2017. The watch features a black grand feu enamel dial with pulsometer scale, blue chronograph hands, and horizontal claw integration. The caliber CHR 29-535 PS movement has 312 parts and supports a 65-hour power reserve.

Patek Philippe World Time Reference 5130R

Sheeran opted for the Patek Philippe World Time 5130R when he received his Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) honor from Prince Charles. With a yellow gold case and brown alligator strap, the watch exudes elegance. The lacquered dial shows the 24 time zones, highlighted by the red arrow pointing to London. The self-winding caliber 240 HU movement powers this globetrotting complication.

From a ToyWatch to Patek Philippe, Ed Sheeran has curated an impressive watch collection full of color, craftsmanship, and sentiment. His knowledge and passion for horology shines through in interviews when he geeks out over the complex movements and innovative designs. Sheeran mixes high and low-end pieces, demonstrating that watch collecting can be both fun and meaningful at any budget. For Sheeran, watches signify milestones, memories, and his personal style.
