The numbers are in, and according to Forbes, Luke Bryan is now the highest paid country music star, taking over from Garth Brooks. Pulling in a staggering $52 million, Luke Bryan had a monster money-making year thanks in part to his worldwide tour, his new gig as a judge on American Idol, and an endorsement deal with Chevrolet. And what does the newly minted highest-paid country music celebrity like to pair his jeans, t-shirts, and boots with? Apparently, some very expensive watches. Along with some mega timepieces from Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, and Richard Mille, Breguet, Hublot, and IWC, Luke Bryan also wears some amazing Rolex watches around his wrist. Let’s find out what they are.
Luke Bryan’s Rolex Milgauss
First up in Luke Bryan’s Rolex collection is the stainless steel Milgauss GV equipped with the unique green sapphire crystal. The Milgauss is Rolex’s antimagnetic watch, resistant to 1,000 gauss of magnetic field.
While there are other dial option colors in the collection, Luke Bryan’s particular Milgauss ref. 116400GV includes a black dial housed within the 40 mm Oyster case. The dark color is the perfect background for the orange details—including that famous bright orange lightning bolt seconds hand—to pop. Finishing off the look of the modern Milgauss is the sporty Oyster bracelet, also in steel.
Luke Bryan’s Rolex Submariner
Moving on from steel, we now turn our attention to the country star’s Rolex Submariner. Not only does Luke Bryan wear the world’s most famous dive watch, but his is the Submariner ref. 116618LN crafted in solid 18k yellow gold.
Plus, on top of the 40 mm Oyster case sits the ultra-modern black Cerachom ceramic bezel, prized for its durability against scratching and resistance to fading. To match the black unidirectional bezel, the Submariner ref. 116618LN sports a black dial with plenty of luminescent details for topnotch legibility.
Luke Bryan’s Rolex GMT-Master II
Along with his yellow gold Sub, Luke Bryan is also the owner of another famous Rolex sports watch in a precious metal: the Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 116719BLRO.
The hefty 18k white gold GMT-Master II ref. 116719BLRO is equipped with the famous red and blue “Pepsi” bezel. And because this white gold GMT-Master II is a modern version of Rolex’s famed pilot’s watch, that bezel is made from Cerachrom ceramic too. In fact, the 116719BLRO was the first GMT-Master II to flaunt the red and blue bezel in ceramic, only to be joined by the steel version just this year.
Luke Bryan’s Rolex Daytona
Not content with just steel and gold Rolex watches, Luke Bryan is also the proud owner of a platinum Rolex. And not just any platinum Rolex, but the anniversary platinum Daytona ref. 116506 fitted with a brown Cerachrom ceramic bezel and an ice blue dial.
Rolex only uses that particular shade of blue on their platinum models, which makes it easy to differentiate a platinum Rolex from a white gold or steel one. The Daytona ref. 116506 made its debut in 2013 to mark 60 years of Rolex’s signature chronograph watch.
With steel, yellow gold, white gold, and platinum Rolex watches in his collection, Luke Bryan has almost all the Rolex materials covered! All he needs now is an Everose gold Rolex watch to make it complete.
