So you already own the biggest house in the Hamptons, drive the latest Aston Martin, and have at least three Hermès Birkins sitting in your closet.
So what else can you own? How about a $170,000 designer watch like the one Charlie Sheen owns?
Nowadays celebrities really do have it all and in most cases one watch just isn’t enough. Timepieces have become both a statement piece and an investment for rich celebrities. And while many are paid to endorse a particular brand (like Leonardo DiCaprio with Tag Heur) other stars revel in collecting for their own personal enjoyment.
Take a look at Jennifer Aniston wearing a men’s Gold Rolex and David Beckham with his Breitling and decide who you think has the best watch collection!

Another major piece in Jay's collection—the diamond encrusted Hublot Big Bang that wife Beyonce bought for him for a cool $5 million.

Typically an Audemars Piguet fan, Jay Z has been know to switch between brands to suit the occasion. During a gig at Carnegie Hall he was seen to change his watch three times to match his three different outfit, one pictured here is a $14 000 Jaeger LeCoultre Rose Gold Tribute to 1931. However his most impressive (and the most bling) has to be the Hublot Big Bang bought for him by his wife, Beyonce, costing a whopping $5 million. The luxury timepiece is the most precious watch ever created by Hublot and is studded with 637 baguette baguette diamonds. 

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Watch Collection: IWC Big Pilot, Rolex GMT Master II, Sly Tech Panerai, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore, and more.

Bradley Cooper

Watch Collection: IWC Big Pilot 7- Day, Rolex Day Date, and more.

The Details: Bradley Cooper's impeccable style is due in small part to his IWC Big Pilot 7- Day watch which measures a massive 46mm. It cost him a cool $11,000, which Cooper shrugged off saying: "When they pay you 15 million for a sequel, you get to say stuff like 'It's only $11,000? I'll take it.'"

Kanye West

Watch Collection: Customized gold Tiret, Rolex gold Daytona, customized all black Rolex Submariner, and more.

The Details: Kanye West is known for his love of bling and all things luxury, so it's no surprise that he splashed out $180,000 for his very own custom made, 18-karat yellow gold Tiret watch. West even had his own face immortalized on the dial, made out of a combination of white, yellow, brown, and black diamonds. The watch has a total of 8-carats of stones and features two Swiss quartz chronographs. It took over five-months to complete.

He once owned an extremely rare Rolex dubbed "the Yacht-master Daytona" which was a prototype, and which he eventually put up for auction donating the proceeds to his Crossroads Foundation.
