A peek inside Robert Downey Jr.’s impressive watch collection

“You can learn a lot about a man if you open up his jewellery box,” says Robert Downey Jr. in this humorous short film. “Once you’ve gone through this watch collection of mine, you’ll know as much about me as anybody on earth…”

Box of treasures

The collection is, as you’d expect of a Hollywood movie star, very impressive, comprising a small number of varied pieces from a humble Bell & Ross gifted to Downey Jr. by Ben Stiller after the duo filmed Tropic Thunder together, to a fabulous Patek Philippe Nautilus. There’s even a black Rolex customised by our friends at Bamford Watch Department – a significant seal of approval, we’re sure you’ll agree.
