Contrary to what some may think, luxury watches aren’t just a display of wealth—they’re also a smart investment. Maybe that’s why the BTS members own so many timepieces that are so expensive, they’re worth more than your college tuition. When you see these 10 of the priciest watches they’ve ever been spotted with, you’ll likely find yourself begging them to pay your fees!
#10. Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 34 (Jin)
Worth approximately $5,250 USD
$5,000 may sound like a crazy amount of money, but in the context of this list, Jin‘s Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date watch almost seems cheap! Despite that, it could still pay a year of tuition in countries like Australia, Canada, and many parts of Europe.
#9. Cartier Tank Americaine (Jimin)
Worth approximately $5,750 USD
Another comparatively modest timepiece is Jimin’s leather-banded Cartier Tank Americaine watch, which he’s been spotted wearing on several occasions.
#8. Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 (Suga)
Worth approximately $10,000 USD
Rolex is one of the most popular brands among the BTS members. Jungkook has an extensive collection of them, and Suga is a fan too. Here, he was pictured wearing a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 watch worth around $10k.
#7. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding (Suga)
Worth approximately $17,750 USD
Audemars Piguet is another brand that appears frequently on this list. This stainless steel piece appears in Suga’s collection, and another member owns an even more expensive version of the same model.
#6. Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Eight Days (V)
Worth approximately $18,500 USD
V seems to have a taste for Swiss brand Jaeger-LeCoultre because he owns several of their watches. One of his less expensive pieces (if you can call it that!) is his Master Eight Days watch, which he’s been pictured with several times.
#5. Rolex Cosmograph Daytona (Jungkook)
Worth approximately $22,500 USD
Jungkook has a fairly extensive collection of Rolex watches. One of the most expensive is his Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, generally worth over $22k.
#4. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding (J-Hope)
Worth approximately $33,000 USD
Remember Suga’s $17,500 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch? J-Hope has one a lot like it, except it costs around double the price. Looks like the frosted rose gold is what drives the cost up.
#3. Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre Quantième Lunaire (V)
Worth approximately $41,750 USD
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Duomètre Quantième Lunaire is another one of V’s watches from his much-loved brand. But the craziest part of this one isn’t the price itself—it’s that the watch was a gift from his fansite, Kim Taehyung Bar!
#2. Patek Phillipe Nautilus 5712R (RM)
Worth approximately $45,500 USD
RM definitely has the most expensive watch taste in BTS. His Patek Phillipe piece is worth almost $50k, and that’s not even the most expensive in his collection!
#1. Rolex Day-Date Platinum Bar (RM)
Worth approximately $77,000 USD
Clocking in at #1 is RM’s Rolex Daydate Platinum Bar, by far one of the most expensive accessories a BTS member has ever worn (or any idol for that matter!). Even the most expensive college in the world doesn’t have a yearly tuition fee this high.
