Robert Downey Jr. is an actor known and loved for the versatility of his characters. Whether he is playing Tony Stark, the genius billionaire in Iron Man, or a father-to-be wanting to attend his child’s birth on time in Due Date, he knows exactly how to bring his characters to life.
If there is one thing Robert Downey Jr. is proud of more than the array of roles he has done, it would without a doubt be his extremely luxurious watch collection. With just one look inside his collection, you can tell that he, in fact, is one of the highest-paid actors in the whole of Hollywood.
A Walkthrough of Robert Downey Jr.’s Deluxe Watch Collection
Back in 2016, in an interview with the GQ Style Magazine, Robert Downey Jr. let the viewers in on his insanely expensive, luxurious, and varying watch collection. The actor stated, “You can learn a lot about a man if you open up his jewelry box.” And while he doesn’t have any tiaras or chokers in his, it sure is filled to the brim with fancy watches.
He begins the look into his collection by tossing aside a watch saying, “I don’t know.” Who knows? Maybe the watch was a little less expensive for the man’s liking. Next, he shows his Jaeger-LeCoultre, a $92,000 watch he wore in Iron Man. The actor says that it is probably the best watch he has.
Next in line is an Omega watch that he describes as a “lovely timepiece, very sporty.” However, he tosses it aside saying they can “suck it” as he didn’t have an endorsement for them.
He continues the walkthrough by showing the two Rolex watches in his collection. One was “black and shiny” that he got his friend on his birthday, and apparently for himself and the other was the “Green Money” Rolex. When asked why the Rolex was called ‘Green Money’ Robert Downey Jr. says “I don’t know. I just saw it and it was green, and probably not cheap.” This goes on to say that the Sherlock Holmes actor is not playing around when it comes to his incredible watch collection.
Next, he shows a watch that had a bit of “shame” to its name – a Baume & Mercier – his grandfather’s watch he used to start a pharmacy that was later busted for filling scripts for people forging their doctor’s signatures.
He continues his watch collection by ‘calling out’ Ben Stiller for not accepting a Bell & Ross as a gift, saying it was too big for him and that he hasn’t talked to Stiller since. He admits to his lie saying that it was, in fact, Stiller who gave him the timepiece when they wrapped up Tropic Thunder.
He finishes off his collection with a $33,200 Patek Philippe his wife got him for his birthday, a watch that he has since grown to love saying it was the most glamorous watch he owns.
Robert Downey Jr. Likes to Live Grand
With a couple of offices out in Venice Beach, lavish property in Malibu, crystals, and vintage cars to his name, it is safe to say that the actor knows he has done good for himself and he likes to live that way. The guy even had alpacas for pets!
Fans were extremely thrilled to look into the real life of their favorite Avenger and came to the conclusion that the man not only plays the billionaire Tony Stark, but he himself is Tony Stark. Many joked that the character might even be inspired by Robert Downey Jr.’s real-life persona.
