Did you notice how many watches where worn in the movie the Wolf of Wall Street ?

Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) showcases capitalism at its seediest. Leonardo DiCaprio plays Jordan Belfort, the penny-stock broker turned all-around degenerate, living his best life in “greed is good” America. Speaking of greed, the film features all manner of expensive things – from Belfort's white Ferrari to his lush New York estate to his interesting duo of TAG Heuer watches.



The Wolf of Wall Street is teeming with timepieces, only they aren't the usual suspects (and when they are, they aren't exactly what they seem). The film begins with a 22- year-old Belfort at the genesis of his career. His first day on the job, he meets his first boss (played by Matthew McConaughey) and we meet our first two watches.

At Kings N Queens this is one of our favourite movies !


What clocks can be seen?

Mark Hanna’s Rolex Datejust (Matthew McConaughey)

One of the first watches to make an appearance on the scene is a vintage (not in those years) steel and yellow gold Rolex Datejust. The person wearing it is, none other than, Matthew McConaughey as Mark Hannah, Jordan Belfort’s mentor broker at L.F. Rothschild, the one who initiates him into the unregulated life at the basis of which are drugs and sex (if you remember one of the early scenes in which both of them are sitting at the table on their lunch break).

Jordan Belfort’s Seiko Solar (Leonardo DiCaprio)

At the same lunch where we first see Mark Hanna’s Rolex Datejust, Jordan Belfort wears a Seiko Solar. The choice is completely understandable. At this point in the film, Jordan is only 22 years old and it is his first day on the job. The reliable and not very expensive watch will soon be replaced by a variant much better suited to the character’s evolution.

As we know, things change quickly. L.F. Rothschild goes bankrupt and Belfort finds himself out of a job. Urged on by his wife, thanks to the brokerage license he obtained, he begins trading penny stocks independently.

Through his stock manipulation scheme, DiCaprio’s character begins to earn large sums of money. Meanwhile, he meets Dannie Azoff (Jonah Hill) and together they grow the business to establish Stratton Oakmont, a brokerage firm with which Belfort’s scams continue.
