Ellen DeGeneres casually wore a $175,000 Rolex in her latest interview with Jerry Seinfeld Tom Murray
Ellen DeGeneres recently appeared on Jerry Seinfeld’s Netflix interview series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”
What fans of DeGeneres might not have noticed was her wristwear.
In the shot below, the talk show host is wearing a 1969 Rolex “Paul Newman” Daytona Reference 6241 on a steel bracelet — one of which has previously sold for $175,000.
t’s actually no surprise that DeGeneres can afford such a rare watch. As well as her eponymous talk show that has been running for 15 seasons (2,440 episodes at the time of writing), DeGeneres has made millions flipping homes in Los Angeles.
In 2004, DeGeneres bought a home that she nicknamed “The Treehouse” which has had various celeb owners since then, including producer David Weissman and actors Heath Ledger and Josh Hutcherson.
Two years later, she sold a property to Will Ferrell for $9 million. And in 2012, Ryan Seacrest bought one of her homes for over $36 million. In total, she’s bought and sold around a dozen homes, according to Trulia, and has even published a book with interior design tips.
When asked about her house flipping reputation, Ellen told The New York Times: “I’ve never bought to sell. I always say: ‘This is it. I’m never moving.’ People laugh at me now.”
DeGeneres is the latest in a recent string of celebrities to show off expensive watches in public. David Beckham recently showed how to wear a white t-shirt while wearing a $42,000 watch and Pharrell Williams wore an $815,500 watch to Paris Fashion Week.
