Footballers love to show off their wealth, and there are three obvious ways in which they can do that. With flashy cars, designer clothes and expensive timepieces. Most athletes love to show them off almost daily.
None of the world’s top players and managers are short of money; they can afford the best of the best.Let’s take a look at some of their wrists and see what they are sporting.
Bruno Fernandes – Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph
This near-perfect watch is a firm favourite of 25-year-old Bruno Fernandes. The Portuguese midfielder that Manchester United paid Sporting Lisbon €55 million for and has taken the Premier League by storm ever since his arrival.
The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph is as attractive a watch as you will find anywhere. The superior aesthetics of perfect proportions and layout are impossible to miss.
Lionel Messi – Audemars Piguet Royal
Lionel Messi is not just the owner of an Audemar watch or two, whose pieces are all valued at $350,000; he is indeed the owner of Audemars watches. Messi has been spotted wearing almost all the designs from the collection.
All Audemar watches are pure platinum, and like Messi himself, his watches are regarded by experts as among the best in the world.
Pep Guardiola – Richard Mille RM010 Automatic AMC Blue
Swiss watchmaker for the world’s top sports stars, Richard Mille, is a firm favourite of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola. The £66,000, 1 of 30 Richard Mille RM010 Automatic AMC Blue is perfect on the wrist of one of the most stylish managers in world football.
Both the bezel and the strap match the sky blue that Pep’s team Manchester famously wear.
Other favourites of Peps that he is often spotted wearing are a Richard Mille RMOO4 All Grey or his Rolex Deep Sea-Dweller.
Philippe Coutinho – Patek Philippe 5167A Aquanaut
Before Coutinho’s £142 million move to Spanish giants Barcelona, he was one of the best players in the world, tearing up the Premier League with Liverpool.
A Patek Aquanaut is now regarded as the optimum Philippe Patek to have in any collection. That, however, wasn’t always the case.
The Patek Aquanaut didn’t get a great reception upon its release in 1997. Now though, it is the perfect blend of sporty and formal. It doesn’t ever need to be worn with a dress suit, but it could, perfectly.
Naymar Jr – Gaga Milano
After purchasing his 16th watch from the luxury, Milan based watchmaker Gaga Milano, they offered Neymar Jr an ambassadorial role within the company, a cover page, and an entire limited edition under his name. That line only manufactured 500 pieces and sold out incredibly quickly.
If you have a look at Neymar Jr’s social media, you will see him wearing multiple Gaga Milano timepieces.
