Since rekindling his romance with global superstar Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck has been making headlines more often. Recently, the actor and filmmaker caused a fuss for appearing to be “bored” as he accompanied his wife at the 65th annual Grammy Awards.

While Affleck might not be the biggest Grammys fan, we can at least be sure of one of his interests: luxury watches.

From his Franck Muller x Chrome Hearts timepiece to his Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller, let’s dive into the dazzling and impressive watch collection of one of Hollywood’s biggest names.


1. Franck Muller Cintrée Curvex x Chrome Hearts
Arguably the most famous watch in Affleck’s collection, this fancy timepiece is a present from his current wife and fellow Hollywood A-lister Lopez, per GQ.

The power couple – fondly called “Bennifer” by fans – first got together in 2002 and made waves for multiple reasons, including when Affleck sported this iconic Franck Muller at a Los Angeles Lakers game and Lopez’s music video for “Jenny From the Block”, according to Hodinkee.

Soon after the couple reunited in 2021, the watch seems to have found its way back onto the 50-year-old’s wrist.

4. Breguet Tradition Fusée Tourbillon 7047PT
What is Batman’s go-to timepiece? The Breguet Tradition Tourbillon – at least for Affleck’s version of the famous superhero. Affleck was spotted wearing timepiece, estimated at US$190,000, in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, as well as in Justice League, per WatchesOnYou.

Per Hollywood Reporter, a Breguet spokesperson revealed that Affleck and film director Zack Snyder selected the 7407. “They felt it was the best watch for the character and helped complete the image of Bruce Wayne,” the rep explained.

Unfortunately though, this did not sit well with some critics who questioned the historical accuracy of featuring the watch. The award-winning movie was set during the Iran Hostage Crisis between 1979 to 1981, while the Sea-Dweller was released in 2008, as reported by Hodinkee.
