The iconic film The Wolf of Wallstreet highlights some of the wildest and outrageous decadence of the Wall Street lifestyle. The film features expensive suits, yachts, wealth, and of course… Watches. The Wolf of Wall Street watches are some of the top of the line Rolex and Tag Heuer timepieces, as seen on the wrist of the star Leonardo DiCaprio. Here is a quick look at the Wolf of Wall Street watches worn by the cast of the film.

Leonardo DiCaprio in ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ wears Tag Heuer 1000 Series

Leonardo DiCaprio takes on the role of real life wall street investor Jordan Belfort. In the film, DiCaprio can be seen flaunting a striking 18ct gold watch.

The watch itself is a very close look alike of the classic Rolex GMT Master II in 18k gold ref. 16718 with Jubilee bracelet. This is because many of the watches in the film are indeed Rolex watches, as the film’s director Martin Scorsese is a Rolex Ambassador. 

Clever details in the movie. Perfect watch for a con artist banker?

One thing movie buffs will be surprised to learn is that the watch Leonardo DiCaprio is seen wearing isn’t in fact a Rolex.

Leonardo DiCaprio is a well known Tag Heuer ambassador, and as such actually wore a custom 18k gold Tag Heuer 1000 series timepiece. Unfortunately, this line of Tag Heuer timepieces was discontinued in the early 1990’s. 

Leonardo DiCaprio also wears Tag Heuer 2000 Exclusive

A less famed Tag Heuer was also spotted by those of keen eyes. Leonardo DiCaprio was wearing another Tag. Look closely and you’ll see the Tag Heuer 2000 Exclusive ref. WN5141 gold plated with diamond bezel.

Matthew McConaughey in ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ wears 1980’s Rolex Datejust

Matthew McConaughey played a crucial role in the life and development of the main character Belfort. The big-shot Wall Street guru is seen living in the lap of luxury, and flaunting it in the timepieces that he wears.

To honor this, throughout the movie, you can spot on McConaughey’s wrist two separate dual-tone Rolex Datejust watches in the classic 1980’s design. This powerful dual-tone design with the jubilee bracelet fits his character as a Wall Street giant perfectly. 

Jonah Hill in ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ wears Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116528 18k 

Jonah Hill played the role of Belforte’s over the top and eccentric business partner Donnie Azoff. Azoff was known to be extravagant in everything he did, and was always attempting to flaunt his lavish Wall Street lifestyle. Because of this, his watch simply had to match his personality.

This Wolf of Wall Street watch was the sleek and stylish Rolex Cosmograph Daytona in 18k. The glitz and bling of this Rolex Cosmograph Daytona ref. 116528 18k gold black Paul Newman dial was among the most valuable watches that can be seen in the film

The Supporting Cast – IWC Big Pilot’s. 

The film itself is a testament to luxury watches and that doesn’t stop with Tag Heuer watches and Rolex watches. In fact, many of the supporting cast can be spotted wearing simple yet elegant IWC Big Pilot watches as well throughout the movie. This should come as no surprise with DiCaprio being an ambassador for Tag Heuer, and the film’s director Martin Scorsese being a Rolex ambassador–the movie had to have some fancy watches!
