There are perks to taking over the pop culture landscape – just ask BTS. As the richest group in K-pop with a net worth totalling around US$50 million between them, it’s almost a given that such wealth would be spent on lavish properties, private jets and fancy items for their loved ones. But did you know that BTS’ wrist candy is just as OTT? In fact, it’s estimated their combined watch collection is worth over US$1 million!

It may seem like a lot, but let’s not forget that luxury watches aren’t just accessories, but also smart investments. And we’d expect nothing less from Jungkook, J-Hope and the gang …

According to CNBC, the demand for luxury watches has seen a sharp increase in the last two years, whether for original timepieces or pre-owned. This is in part due to the reluctance of the four big brands – Rolex, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet and Richard Mille – to produce more of their limited edition timepieces despite the huge demand. So, which high-end watch brands do our favourite septet own?

Jin loves his pink Rolex

The eldest member of BTS, Jin is definitely a Rolex fan. He has been spotted wearing a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 36 in Everose gold (he loves pink!) and in white gold. Both timepieces are diamond-encrusted and come in a 36mm dial, 18K white gold case and diamond-set bezel, according to Watchonista. Not stopping there, Jin also flaunted a Rolex Day-Date 31 back in 2019. Rolex’s Oyster Perpetual Day-Date is priced around US$55,000, according to Chrono-24.

Jimin wears a Cartier beloved by creatives

Cartier appears to be the brand of choice for Jimin, the vocalist and dancer of the group. And in particular, the deluxe Cartier Tank Américaine that’s famous for the long line of creatives that have worn it on their wrists since it was created in 1917. The ideal choice for someone like Jimin, we’d say.

The watch is priced at around US$6,300 new, and earned its name after Louis Cartier took inspiration from the tanks on the WWI battlefields as seen from above. The luxury timepiece comes with an octagonal crown set with a blue synthetic spinel, silver dial, blued-steel sword-shaped hands and shiny, navy-blue alligator leather strap.

V was gifted a Jaeger-LeCoultre but bought his own Gucci

Kim Tae-hyung, better known as V, often flaunts his Gucci and Jaeger-LeCoultre timepieces when out and about. When it comes to Gucci, BTS’ vocalist opted for a 38mm, quartz-powered Le Marché des Merveilles. And from the Swiss brand, a Master Eight Days and Duomètre Quantième Lunaire in a refined pink gold case. However the latter wasn’t exactly his own choice, as it was in fact a gift from diehard Chinese fans given to him in 2017 for his birthday. It’s worth an impressive US$35,000.

Philanthropic Suga also splurges on Rolex and Audemars Piguet for himself

The rapper, best known for his boisterous style and generous philanthropy, has been spied in both a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 in silver, and an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Self Winding Automatic in either 34 or 37mm. The latter is priced at around US$42,000, according to Swiss Luxury.

Jungkook has the most Rolex watches of all

The youngest member of the boy band has perhaps the largest watch collection of them all. According to Watchonista, Jungkook is thought to have as many as nine Rolex watches, including the dashing two-tone Submariner (around US$15,000 new), a Cosmograph Daytona (from US$35,000 new), and a Day-Date 36 (US$37,000 new) on a President bracelet.

J-Hope has a one of a kind frosted Audemars Piguet

The multi-hyphenate not only keeps his fans’ attention with his eclectic fashion style, but also glimpses of the expensive luxury watches he wears. The best example is J-Hope’s crazy expensive 37mm frosted gold Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Self Winding watch – a custom-made piece by jewellery designer Carolina Bucci that’s worth around US$51,000, according to Hodinkee. The watch’s jaw-dropping price tag is due to the one-of-a-kind Florentine technique used to create the watch’s unique frosted finish.

RM has seriously expensive taste in Patek Philippe and Rolex watches

Kim Nam-joon, aka RM, is known for his songwriting and production prowess. He is also known internationally as the only BTS member who is fluent in English and therefore usually takes the lead in interviews.

When it comes to watches, he is often pictured wearing his rose gold Patek Philippe Nautilus 5712R (almost US$50,000, according to Watchonista). If knowing this already makes your jaw drop, the 27-year-old also reportedly owns a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40 that’s worth somewhere between US$77,000 and US$100,000. His Rolex is styled in platinum ice blue with a diagonal motif dial and is regarded as one of the most elegant timepieces in the world.
