5 Gems From BTS-Member Jin’s Enviable Watch Assortment: Cartier, Jaeger-LeCoultre And Extra

Lavish mansions, expensive cars and private jets — such riches often define the lifestyle of pop culture icons. Their luxury assets add to the overall charisma, and fans cannot help but marvel at their riches.

A sensation in the contemporary global pop landscape, K-pop band Bangtan Sonyeondan or BTS enjoys unrivalled popularity. All their members — RM, Jin, Suga, Jimin, V, J-Hope and Jungkook — rank among the most popular faces in the world. And with such fame comes wealth. So much so, that BTS is the richest K-pop band.

BTS members are trendsetters when it comes to their fashion sense. However, what the ARMY members are most interested in is the septet’s ensemble of wrist candies. Each member of the boyband owns exquisite timepieces. In fact, reports suggest that the estimated worth of the BTS’ overall watch collection stands at a monstrous USD 1 million!

Kim Seok-jin, popularly known by his mononym Jin, is the eldest member of the BTS. He shares a penchant for luxury watches with the rest of his band members, matching the luxurious accessories of Golden Maknae Jungkook. The Korean vocalist is a self-proclaimed “worldwide handsome”, and his ensemble of timepieces definitely helps him to live up to that moniker.

So, on that note, here is a close look at some of the most magnificent watches in BTS vocalist Jin‘s enviable collection along with their respective price tags.

Which wrist candies does BTS’ Jin boast in his collection of luxury watches?

Vintage Tank Louis Cartier

Price: USD 15,350

Let’s get started with BTS’ ‘hyung’ or older brother Jin’s collection of watches with the precious Vintage Tank Louis Cartier. A timepiece with a rich legacy of over a century, Louis Cartier created the Tank in 1917. The first prototype of this watch was presented as a gift to General Pershing of the United States Army. Over the years, there have been innumerable models in the Tank lineup.

This particular model was spotted on Jin’s wrist in one of his Instagram posts. The case is made of yellow gold 750/1000. The red-and-opaline dial features yellow gold-coloured sword-shaped hands and Roman numerals. A scratchproof mineral crystal protects the dial.

The royal look of this dress watch is complemented well by the beaded crown set with a sapphire cabochon. This Cartier watch comes with a semi-matte claret leather strap and is water resistant up to 30 metres.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Duoface Small Seconds

Price: USD 14,990

Reverso is one of the finest watch lineups by Jaeger-LeCoultre. This timepiece was introduced in 1931 during a polo match inside a British Army officer’s club. The challenge was to make a watch that could stand a rigorous polo match. David LeCoultre of Switzerland rose to the occasion magnificently and invented a watch that can swivel on its own axis. This is how the Reverso was born.

The Reverso Tribute Duoface Small Seconds in Jin’s collection of watches is a homage to the iconic Reverso model. Crafted out of stainless steel, one side of this timepiece’s dial sports a small seconds sub-dial at the six o’clock marker. There is also a day/night indicator for the second time zone. The dials are protected by a scratchproof sapphire crystal that runs on both sides.

Under the hood, this Jaeger-LeCoultre model comes with the watchmaker’s in-house 854A/2 manual winding movement. Each winding of the mechanical movement provides a power reserve of up to 42 hours. The watch’s blue dial is in perfect tandem with the blue leather strap.

Ballon Bleu De Cartier

Price: USD 6,500

BTS vocalist Jin’s love for Cartier watches continues with the Ballon Bleu De Cartier model in his collection. This watch sports a funky yet classy look, just like Jin’s persona on stage.

The case of the timepiece is made of industry-grade steel. A fluted crown set with a synthetic cabochon-shaped spinel adorns the body. The silvered guilloché dial comes with Roman numerals and blued-steel sword-shaped hands. It also fashions a calendar window at the three o’clock position. This dial is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

The watch is powered by Cartier’s in-house calibre 1847 MC mechanical movement with automatic winding. An interchangeable black alligator leather strap completes the look of the timepiece. In terms of durability, the watch is water resistant up to 30 metres.

Gucci G-Timeless Watch

A watch with a rather unorthodox look, this variant of the Gucci G-Timeless lineup provides its wearer with an interesting look. The yellow gold plating on the stainless steel case gives a nice contrast to the black dial.

It features a black leather strap with the Gucci bee and stripes in gold. This timepiece is water resistant up to 50 metres.

Summing up BTS’ Jin’s collection of watches is one of Givenchy’s most famous lineups, the Seventeen. This range helped the brand return to the world of horology after a hiatus of several years. Therefore, this is a very special collection.

The model in the Korean star’s ensemble is made of stainless steel and sports a 40-millimetre dial. The overall look of the wrist candy is reminiscent of sci-fi movies from the 1980s. With this variant, Givenchy wanted to gift the world a perfect timepiece that takes the best of dress watches and sports watches.

The watch is powered by a Swiss quartz movement. In terms of durability, it sports a scratchproof sapphire crystal on top of the dial and is water resistant up to 30 metres. The timepiece comes with two NATO-style straps in leather and nylon.
