Actor Orlando Bloom's watch collection contains a large selection of rare timepieces. The collection is particularly noteworthy for a number of Rolex models.

The collection

Bloom’s collection of 40 watches includes eight items that are more than 40 years old and six Rolex pieces.

Most notable among the collection is a 1950s anti-magnetic Rolex Milgauss worth in the region of £150,000. Bloom also owns a Rolex Submariner.

Bloom sold a 1973 Explorer II Steve McQueen piece at an Antiquorum auction in 2009.

Burglary

Eight watches and jewellery worth between £300,000-400,000 were stolen from Bloom’s home in Los Angeles in 2009. The perpetrators, known as the Bling Ring gang, targeted a number of celebrities’ homes including Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.

A member of the gang, reality television star Alexis Neiers, was sentenced to six months in jail after pleading no contest to a charge of breaking into Bloom’s house.

Much of the haul was returned and the Rolex watches have been recovered.
