Hollywood star Ewan McGregor has spoken of his love of watches, which started from a young age.

In an interview published by Livemint, the Scottish actor explained that he spent time in the watch-making workshop of his grandfather as a young child and has appreciated the beauty of a timepiece ever since.

"I am not a collector or anything. But I do appreciate good watches," said the star of films such as Trainspotting, Brassed Off and Moulin Rouge.

McGregor, 41, added that treating himself to "a serious watch" was one of the first things he did after his acting career began to take off.

The actor also has an antique timepiece in his possession, as he revealed that his grandfather left him a pocketwatch he had repaired, which dates back to the 1800s.

Recently seen in films such as Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and The Impossible, McGregor is also due to appear in upcoming fantasy adventure Jack the Giant Slayer.
