Inside BTS Member Jimin’s Watch Assortment: Chanel Boy-Buddy, Cartier Tank Américaine And Extra

Over the years, luxury and grandeur have become synonymous with pop culture sensations. They are known for enjoying riches the simpletons can never even dream of. From private jets and lavish mansions to fancy cars, everything is at their disposal.

This holds for almost every pop star. From Elton John’s embellished watch collection to Taylor Swift’s luxurious bag collection, their opulent lifestyles draw much curiosity. And fans cannot help but marvel at all of their luxury possessions.

For the past few years, BTS has been ruling the global pop landscape. All their members — RM, Jin, Suga, Jimin, V, J-Hope and Jungkook — are icons in their own right. With such widespread popularity, it comes as little surprise to learn that BTS is the richest K-pop band in the world.

Whenever we talk about the boy band’s wealth, we cannot help but drool over their unrivalled fashion sense and all the elegant accessories they own — sneakers, jackets, and most importantly… watches.

Interestingly, it is the septet’s ensemble of wrist candies that ARMY (BTS’ official fanbase) is most interested in. According to reports, the estimated worth of BTS’ watch collection as a whole is a massive USD 1 million.

Much akin to the rest of his band members, Park Ji-min — popularly known as Jimin — has a penchant for exquisite timepieces. As such, let us take a look at Jimin’s collection of luxury watches and their price tags.

Price: USD 75,500

Let us jump into Jimin’s watch collection with the Patek Philippe Complications 5905P. The Korean vocalist and dancer has been spotted wearing this timepiece in his VLive sessions.

A timeless classic, this Patek Philippe model comes with a 42-millimetre ebony grey-black sunburst dial protected by a scratchproof sapphire crystal on top. The gold-applied hour markers and numerals offer a striking contrast to the grey-black dial.

Crafted in platinum, the watch sports a matte black alligator strap with square scales and a prong buckle. The piece is water resistant up to 30 metres. It is powered by Patek Philippe’s in-house self-winding mechanical movement calibre CH 28-520 QA 24H.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Frosted Gold

Price: USD 66,000

Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak lineup offers a vast multitude of shapes, sizes and colours. However, the one in Jimin’s watch collection sports a 41-millimetre dial with rectangular markers. The smoked blue “Grande Tapisserie” dial is protected by a scratchproof sapphire crystal on top.

The Royal Oak watches come with signature octagonal bezels, and this one is no different. This timepiece is made of 18 carats of white gold. Under the hood, the watch houses a powerful calibre 4302, a self-winding automatic movement. Each winding of the watch offers a power reserve of up to 70 hours. The entire mechanical movement is made up of 257 parts.

In terms of durability, the watch is water resistant up to 50 metres. It is an exquisite timepiece that suits the Korean pop star’s personality perfectly.

Patek Philippe Complications 5205G-13

Price: USD 57,620

Pretty similar to the Patek Philippe timepiece we talked about earlier, the Complications 5205G-13 comes with a few distinguishing markers. The most significant of them is its colour scheme — instead of a traditional grey-black hue, this variant sports a more adventurous blue sunburst on the dial.

Speaking of the dial, it has a slightly smaller 40-millimetre diameter as compared to the 42-millimetre one on the Complications 5905P. In addition to the traditional day, date and month windows, there is a subdial which indicates moon phases. The hour markers and numerals are gold-applied, giving the watch a classy look. And, like most Patek Philippe watches, the dial is protected by a scratchproof sapphire crystal.

The timepiece, made of 18-carat white gold, comes with a shiny black alligator strap with square scales and a prong buckle. It is water resistant up to 30 metres. Under the hood, it sports the in-house self-winding mechanical movement calibre 324 S QA LU 24H/206. This timepiece is a perfect fit for Jimin, thus finding its place on the list of the most exquisite watches in his collection.

Patek Philippe Nautilus

Price: USD 56,330

A watch with great historic significance, Jimin was seen sporting a Patek Philippe Nautilus model in a photoshoot alongside fellow K-pop artist Jessi. The Patek Philippe Nautilus line, much like the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak series, was a product of the Quartz Crisis in 1969 with the introduction of the quartz movement by Seiko‘s Astron.

Designed by Swiss clockmaker and artist Gérald Genta, the Patek Philippe Nautilus lineup is known for offering great durability underwater. The model owned by Jimin is made of industrial-grade stainless steel with a case diameter of 40.5 millimetres.

The blue dial comes with gold-applied hour markers and bears a luminescent coating for better visibility underwater. This timepiece is water-resistant to 120 metres. It is powered by the self-winding mechanical movement calibre 324 S QA LU 24H/303 comprised of 347 parts and enclosed by a sapphire crystal case back.

Chanel Boy-friend

Price: USD 10,850

Talk about a minimalist yet royal watch, and not many can compete with the Chanel Boy-friend in Jimin’s collection. This timepiece is sleek, elegant and a perfect fit for the BTS vocalist in any outing.

The case is crafted from steel, and the bezel is fitted with 64 brilliant-cut diamonds. The black guilloché dial features a date indicator, and the timepiece features a steel crown with a black spinel cabochon.

Unlike most luxury watches, this Chanel timepiece is fitted with a black steel bracelet with a tweed motif and a double-folding buckle. The watch houses a high-precision quartz movement and is water resistant up to 30 metres.

Price: USD 5,050

Perhaps the most notable watch in Jimin’s collection, the Cartier Tank Américaine is a premium timepiece with a rich history that dates back to 1917.

Master watchmaker Louis Cartier drew inspiration from the tanks used in World War I to craft this timepiece. The watch, in a typical Cartier fashion, boasts an octagonal crown with a blue synthetic spinel.

The silver dial of the watch sports blued-steel sword-shaped hands, and the steel case comes with an attractive navy-blue alligator leather strap. In addition, it offers a water resistance of up to 30 metres.

Gucci Interlocking-G

Price: USD 1,000

Summing up the curation of Jimin’s watch collection is the Gucci Interlocking-G. While it comes in a myriad of colours and sizes, the one in the ‘Like Crazy’ singer’s ensemble is made of stainless steel.

Sporting a 42-millimetre dial, the highlight of the timepiece lies in its bezel, which is shaped like an interlocking G, representing the logo of the brand. The watch is powered by a quartz movement that offers high precision in timekeeping.

In terms of durability, the timepiece is water-resistant up to 50 metres. In practice, this means that the watch can be worn for short periods of recreational swimming. However, it is unsuitable for deep-sea diving or snorkelling.
