John Mayer Sues Watch Dealer Over Phony Rolexes — For HOW Much?

Say what you need to say... and sue who you need to sue. Yes, singer John Mayer is suing a watch dealer for selling him a bunch of fake Rolexes. Translation: What time is it? It's litigation time.

You may thought you knew everything there is to know about John — including that he's a big fan of The Bachelor — but you might not have known that the guy is also an avid watch collector, having collected watches since 2007. Random, right?

Now, Forbes reports that he's suing a well-known Los Angeles-based watch dealer for selling seven very expensive Rolex watches to him which apparently contain parts from less-expensive watches.

The Rolex company has confirmed that John's "Frankenwatches" as they're called in the watch-collecting community (which is a community that we didn't really know existed until now) indeed contain "non-authentic" components. Apparently, the watches were purchased several years ago, and John might not have quite yet had a keen eye for watches back then.

So just how much is John looking to collect in the lawsuit? He is reportedly asking for $656,000, which is how much he paid for the watches. And here we thought that everyone just used their cell phone to tell time these days.

John — who split from pop star Katy Perry recently — apparently has a huge collection of watches, including over 100 top-tier vintage selections. And he also writes for a watch collection website. The guy really likes watches, is what we're trying to say.

Are you surprised that he's so into watches? And do you think he'll win this suit?
