Cristiano Ronaldo owns the most expensive watch in the world
Cristiano Ronaldo is the proud owner of what is believed to be the most expensive watch in the world, at the outrageous price of Â£ 371,000.
The Manchester United star is one of only two active footballers to have earned more than Â£ 1 billion during his playing career, alongside prominent PSG Lionel Messi.
With that in mind, it’s no surprise that the 36-year-old took the opportunity to have a blast over an eye-catching piece of jewelry such as a Rolex.
However, Ronaldo’s Rolex isn’t exactly the kind you might see in everyday life, as its GMT Ice Master had an astronomical price tag attached to it
As reported by the Daily Star, the former Juventus hero bought the timepiece in 2019, while playing for the Serie A club.
Costing Â£ 371,000 at the time, it officially became the price watch the company had never sold – which is still the case to this day.
Composed of 18k white gold, the bezel and bracelet also add to its value, with 30k diamond accents that set the watch apart from virtually anything on the market.
Almost every inch of the watch is covered in stones or white gold, creating a watch worthy of the most exclusive buyers.
Not everything is visible either, as its case means the watch can withstand water pressure of up to 100m – although you can’t imagine someone would be crazy enough to wear it in it. ocean.
It’s possible the piece was a Christmas present, as the forward was first pictured wearing it on December 27, 2019.
Interestingly, Ronaldo has not been seen with his wrist on since leaving Turin for Manchester this summer, raising questions as to whether he still owns it – or whether he stayed in Italy instead.
Overall, there have been few public sightings of the Rolex, the first being its appearance at the Dubai Global Soccer Awards in January 2020.
