What kind of watches does Gordon Ramsay wear?

Gordon Ramsay has many watches in his collection. That being said he has several Rolex Submariner watches in his collection suggesting that this could be one of his favourite models. In addition to the Rolex Submariner, Gordon Ramsay is also famous for his “yellow watch”, which is the Breitling Aeromarine Chrono Avenger. With a watch collection to be envious of, it’s no surprise that many watch enthusiasts are keen to see what timepieces he’ll be seen wearing on his wrist next. Let’s take a look at Gordon Ramsay’s watches.

Rolex Submariner 1680

Frequently seen wearing Rolex, one of Gordon Ramsay’s favourite watches is the Rolex Submariner 1680. Produced for 10 years starting in 1967, the ref. 1680 was the first in Submariner’s history to feature a date and, to ease the reading, the “cyclops” lens on the dial, allowing for a 2.5x magnification. Known as the RED SUB, we can find 6 different “Marks”. Three of which are “METER FIRST” (depth in meters and in feet) and the other three are “FEET FIRST” (depth in feet and meter). Gordon Ramsay wears his Rolex 1680 with a brown leather strap, which emphasises the vintage and rugged look of the Submariner.

Breitling Aeromarine Chrono Avenger M1

One of Gordon Ramsay’s most standout pieces is his statement yellow watch – the Breitling Aeromarine Chrono Avenger M1. The stunning yellow dial, complete with three black sub-dials, is a real crowd pleaser. With a 44mm titanium case and titanium unidirectional rotating bezel along with four 15 minute markers, this Gordon Ramsay watch turns heads for all the right reasons. Featuring a black rubber strap the Breitling Aeromarine Chrono Avenger M1 is as versatile as it is stylish.

Rolex Submariner 14060

Not only does Gordon Ramsay own a vintage Rolex Submariner but he also owns a classic one. In fact, it is considered the last of the “classic” Rolex Submariners. The ref 14060 is considered a classic because it has no date on the dial, is equipped with an aluminium bezel insert, and a pre-Super case and a Maxi dial. Whereas more contemporary Submariners have significantly more features than this. Made from stainless steel, featuring an Oyster bracelet and water resistant to a depth of 300m, the Rolex Submariner 14060 is an excellent diver’s watch and compliments Gordon Ramsay’s style to a tee.

Rolex GMT-Master 1675
