Luxury Watches for famous Soccer Players
As we know that not only are these top soccer players being paid perfectly for their skills on the pitch but their bank accounts are also being boosted by lucrative brand endorsement deals. As a matter of fact, according to Forbes, three of the “World’s Top 10 Highest Paid Athletes” in 2021 are soccer players – Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Neymar. Naturally, we’re curious to know which watches these elite athletes collect.
Sadio Mane, a player for English Premier League club Liverpool and the Senegalese national team, once famously mentioned, “Why should I buy ten Ferraris, twenty diamond fake watches, or two airplanes? What would these items do for me and the world?” Instead, the soccer star would prefer to fund basic projects in his hometown of Bambari, Senegal, including the construction of a school, hospital, and mosque. He may not want 20 diamond watches, but Mane has at least one: the Rolex Datejust 41 two-tone steel and gold watch with a Jubilee strap and a black dial with diamond indexes.
The world’s most well-known footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo is the forward of Juventus and captain of the Portuguese national team. In addition to his five Ballon d’Or and four European Golden Boot awards, Ronaldo is also the most followed man on Instagram with over 400 million followers.
The superstar is also an avid fan of high-quality replica watches, with an extensive watch collection that consists of brands such as Girard-Perregaux, Hublot, Breguet, Jacob & Co. Franck Muller, TAG Heuer, and Bulgari – many of which are encrusted with diamonds and one-off pieces. For instance, he wears the one-of-a-kind Franck Muller Cintrée Curvex Tourbillon “Sertissage Invisible” and the custom-made pink gold and diamond Girard-Perregaux Planetarium three-axis tourbillon.
Leo Messi is still regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time even in turbulent times, with a record for the most Golden Ball awards and a host of other accolades. During Messi’s illustrious career, we have seen him wear several different copy watch brands. Audemars Piguet produced a limited edition Royal Oak Chronograph “Leo Messi” collection in 2012 with 100 platinum watches, 400 rose gold watches, and 500 steel watches. In recent years, Jacob & Co. has released a limited edition Epic X Chrono “Messi” collection consisting of 180 pieces in titanium, 180 pieces in rose gold, and 36 pieces in white gold with baguette-set diamonds on the bezel. However, one of the watches worn by Messi was not made in his name.
