Former NFL player and current host of ABC’s Good Morning America, Michael Strahan, was manning the Oscar’s red carpet last Sunday to give us a closer look at all the celebrities making their way into the ceremony. While he interviewed a slew of celebrities during the 90th Academy Awards, we couldn’t help but notice an awesome Rolex Daytona on his wrist.
Of course, this got us digging around some more and we were delighted to find out that Michael Strahan is most definitely a watch guy. During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the TV star admitted that he’s been into watches since high school and today, he looks for watches that are large and have style. Let’s find out which Rolex watches have made it to Michael Strahan’s wrist.
Michael Strahan Wears a Rolex Daytona
Arguably the most popular (and difficult to find) luxury chronograph right now is the new stainless steel Rolex Daytona with the black ceramic bezel. Although it made its debut in 2016, the Daytona ref. 116500LN is still a tough timepiece to find since there are so many people who want one!
Celebrities in particular are partial to the ceramic Daytona and Michael Strahan is no exception. We’ve seen him wearing his Cerachrom Daytona with a white “panda” dial on several occasions on GMA and it paired perfectly with his gray suede suit on the Oscar’s red carpet.
Michael Strahan Wears a Rolex Deepsea
Since he likes big watches, it’s no surprise that the former New York Giants football player would go for Rolex’s biggest watch—the Deepsea. The brand’s mega diving watch, the Rolex Deepsea sports a hefty case that measures a generous 44mm in diameter. Furthermore, it’s substantially thick to accommodate for the watch’s helium escape valve and special case construction to permit it to plunge down to 4,000 feet.
It’s worth noting that Michael Strahan’s Deepsea is the D-Blue dial version. The Deepsea with the black and blue dial is also known as the “James Cameron Rolex” since the watchmaker created the dial to commemorate the famous director’s historic solo dive to the Mariana Trench.
Michael Strahan Wears a Rolex Day-Date President
Along with the above two Rolex sports models, Michael Strahan has also been photographed wearing a Rolex President dress watch.
His particular model looks to be the larger Everose gold Day-Date 40 with a chocolate dial and diamond bezel, complete with (naturally) the famed President bracelet with the signature semi-circular links. Larger than the traditional 36mm Day-Date President, the Day-Date 40 is a great option for those looking for the President in a bigger size.
