We are in awe of Messi and Ronaldo’s watch collection! They may be known for their incredible skills on the football field, but both men also own some of the finest watches in the world!
Lionel Messi’s Rolex Yacht-Master
The Yacht-Master may not be the most obvious choice for Messi. Among Rolex watches, it’s not the universally loved Daytona, or the super elegant Day-Date. However, it may be a good choice for an athlete, as it is equipped with a rubber strap and a durable ceramic bezel. The Yacht-Master will forever be the timepiece of one of the greatest football players in the world! Messi was actually wearing the watch when he arrived at his new home in Paris.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s Hublot Masterpiece MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-axis
This Hublot Masterpiece costs more than $1.2 million, and is cased out of 18K rose gold, while being fully set with baguette-cut diamonds along with a rose-cut diamond for a crown! Fans who have been following Hublot for a while now see this watch as perhaps the most complicated timepiece in the world.
Messi’s Patek Philippe Nautilus
Sometimes gold gets a little too boring for these top players – and they need something more ‘toned down’, less ostentatious. For this Messi goes to his Patek Philippe Nautilus – costing a mere $77,000.00 USD. The model is no longer in production, but in 2017 Messi wore it at the Ballon d’Or ceremony.
Ronaldo’s Jacob and Co. H24 Four Time Zone
Made from 47.50mm Stainless Steel, 18k Rose Gold, 24 Jewels and indestructible sapphire, this watch is a prized possession of Ronaldo’s collection. It has a price tag of $150,000.00 USD, no small sum for a 47mm diameter piece of metal! Ronaldo has purportedly said this is his favourite watch he owns to date, despite having the much more expensive Hublot Masterpiece!
