Cover All the luxury watches loved by Korean celebrities

We take a closer look at the extravagant timepieces worn by the likes of Lisa, Jisoo, Jungkook and other South Korean superstars

We dive into the stylish luxury watches Korean superstars have been seen with—from BTS member Jungkook’s Rolex to the Cartier worn by Jisoo of Blackpink.

BTS member Jungkook is known for his dapper sense of style—and an impressive collection of Rolex watches. The Swiss brand’s two-tone Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date is a classic model spotted on his wrist. The main feature of the Submariner Date is its rotating bezel. Originally a diving watch, the unidirectional bezel helps divers time themselves underwater with precision. The cerachrom bezel insert is not just scratch resistant, it is also made of a special black ceramic, ensuring it is corrosion free.

Its black dial and luminescent hour markers allow the wearer to discern the time clearly, both underwater or over the surface. This watch is powered by a self-winding 3235 movement.
