  2. NFL Players and Their Luxury Watches

    Watches are an undying passion of people from different fields. People from different worlds and with different tastes like to embrace timepieces that perfectly match their aura. And surely, watch lovers and their soaring enthusiasm for timepieces aren’t likely to fade away in decades to come. Sportsmen are specifically exuberant about collecting watches of several kinds. They have always found a unique connection with timepieces. Sports people are very much inclined towards wrist pieces. If we talk about NFL players, in particular, they are super into which brands and models to sport when it comes to timepieces. They have splendid taste, and they don’t make any compromises on that part. Below is a list of watches that you’ll often find NFL players wearing: 1: Odell Beckham Jr. – Customized Breitling Chronograph For everyone’s information, Odell is a big fan of Breitling. He’s often candid wearing different pieces of this brand. It seems he has a rich taste and he’s quite fond of ultra-elegant watches. When Beckham Jr. was drafted to NFL final in the year 2014, he bought himself a custom-made Breitling watch with a beautiful diamond case. He took to his Instagram and imparted his precious moment with us. It was his way to congratulate himself on gaining a position in the final. Well, he’s quite a hardworking player, and he was obliged to accredit himself for that achievement. This custom-made watch also featured a chronograph dial with date, calendar, 30-min and 6-hour index. It depicted a bezel, a silver strap and round case with diamonds carved in. 2: De’Anthony Thomas – Rolex Daytona It wouldn’t really be an exaggeration to state that Thomas is an all-round sportsman. He carries a mega sports star persona. It’s his ceaseless passion for sports that makes him a maverick of his field. While playing the Valero Alamo Bowl 2014, he was seen sporting Rolex Daytona in all four quarters of the game. It was a beautiful gold piece with medium size, 40 mm yellow gold case, brown leather band and sapphire crystal dial. It gave a consummate and graceful look. He still keeps a number of Rolex watches as he admires the brand from the core of his heart.  Rolex is undoubtedly the most preferred brand of sports personalities. Many top-notch tennis players are also seen embracing Rolex wears. 3: Tom Brady – TAG Heuer Special Edition Heuer 01 Chronograph  Arguably one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, New England Patriot’s Tom Brady has partnered and teamed up with TAG Heuer to design and create his very own timepiece. The chronograph watch comes in the color of his very own Patriot’s jersey – red, blue and silver. Tom Brady has been an ambassador for the TAG Heuer watch company since 2015. The 12 on the watch, which is also Tom Brady’s jersey number, is boldly displayed. Tom’s special edition watch runs on the same movement in TAG Heuer’s Carrera Heuer 01. The details of the watch are finally crafted, just like Brady’s game. It has a 50-hour power reserve and get this – there was only 466 of them made! Not only is it very limited, Tom Brady’s TAG Heuer special edition watch went retail for $5,600. 4: DeMarcus Ware – Rolex Sky Dweller Another Rolex enthusiast is the talk of the town in a row after De’Anthony Thomas, and that NFL big name is DeMarcus Ware. Ware is popular both on and off the field. He’s widely known and undisputedly loved for his customized fashion sense. This Fashionista could be seen wearing Rolex Sky Dweller on many occasions. It’s a rose gold watch with 42mm dial and a round case. It acquires a sub-dial and bi-directional rotating bezel. The bracelet is immensely beautiful with a sapphire crystal backing. The unique thing about this timepiece is roman numerals. It is also resistant to water and scratches, for sure. A lot of suave gentlemen sport this timepiece. Unnecessary to say, the Sky Dweller is always a choice of people with sophisticated taste. 5: Eli Manning – Citizen Eco-Drive Eli Manning who has just taken retirement from sports is said to be the brand ambassador of Citizen Eco-Drive. He has showcased his passion for the watch so many times. He’s undoubtedly the best face for this smooth-talking brand. He is ranked 7th among NFL passing touchdown leaders. He was a highly rated player and an ace of the aces. Until he retired, he was estimated as one among the top-tier names of NFL. At the launch of the watch, he was seen wearing a gold watch with a black dial. It has a bezel, push button and a crown attached beside. Though the watch is now discontinued, it still made quite an impact. The hands are in golden color with sub-dials as it is a chronograph watch. Eco-Drive represents an all-in-all calm and placid personality. 6: Peyton Manning – Panerai Radiomir The Manning family tends to stand in each other’s shoes when it comes to timepieces. Not just Eli, Peyton Manning is also a big-time watch enthusiast. Manning blood has something in common, it seems. In his last match, Peyton could be seen wearing this magnificent timepiece. He ranks third among NFL passing touchdown leaders. He might have retired, but his charm is never going to retire. The watch has a slightly big case with 47mm dial. It also has a sapphire crystal for the backing. The Panerai Radiomir offers a strap with wire loop attachments and a brown colored case. It has the tendency to reserve power. The strap is easily removable when needed. Our favorite sports-stars are head over heels with their favorite timepieces. They carefully choose what to endorse, because, in one way or the other, it describes their personalities and their disposition. Conclusively, they adorn themselves with something inch-perfect.

An outfielder and second baseman for the Washington Nationals, Kendrick has a unique collection of vintage watches. A few of his favorite models include a Gilt Rolex Submariner Reference 5513 — the first vintage watches he ever purchased. Dating to the 1960s, the Submariner is highly sought after by collectors because of its hard-to-find gilt dial with gold lettering. Rolex switched to a matte black dial in 1967.

  5. Watch Fashion: A Closer Look At Tom Brady’s Watch Collection

    Professional athletes shine when they are playing their games, but they also shine when they’re off the field – with their watches. Tom Brady has made headlines for things that has to do with football and not, but two things are certain: Tom Brady is one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play professional football and he has impeccable taste in luxury watches. A True TAG Heuer Loyalist While Brady has been seen sporting several watch brands over the years, these days he will only talk about TAG Heuer. The 41-year-old was named a brand ambassador for the Swiss watchmakers in 2015 and since has shown fierce loyalty in promoting their finer pieces at public events. View this post on Instagram The entire TAG Heuer family wishes TAG Heuer Ambassador and winner of 5 world championships and 4 MVP honors, @TomBrady a very Happy Birthday! #DontCrackUnderPressure #TomBrady #HappyBirthday A post shared by TAG Heuer (@tagheuer) on Aug 3, 2018 at 9:00am PDT The watch that Brady is most known for is the time-honored TAG Heuer Carrera. Debuting in 1964, the famed racing watch pays tribute to the legendary Mexican open-road race La Carrera Panamericana. But Brady’s love for the iconic sport watch predated his association with the brand by more than a decade. The first high-end watch Tom ever purchased was a Carrera, as a well-earned gift to himself after winning his first Super Bowl in 2002. Flash forward to today and Brady has a collection of Carreras, including his very own signature model. The limited edition Tom Brady Special Edition Heuer 01 Chronograph has a deep blue dial and a prominent number 12 in red as a nod to his jersey number. Brady collaborated on the design that features a brushed stainless steel case with a fixed ceramic bezel and a domed anti-reflective crystal. TAG Heuer gifted Tom with a one-of-a-kind watch after his fifth Super Bowl victory. Brady is a five time champion, so it was only right he got a custom-made Carrera Tourbillon Chronograph engraved with “5 Championships” on the back of its titanium case. Polished black finishes grace a sleek skeletonized dial, openwork rotor and chronograph bridges on the watch. View this post on Instagram Thank you @tagheuer for a fun weekend at the Monaco Grand Prix! It was great seeing so many friends and I look forward to coming back again! ??? Congratulations @danielricciardo and @lewishamilton A post shared by Tom Brady (@tombrady) on May 27, 2018 at 7:37am PDT Smartwatches for Sportier Times The dressier TAG Heuers are often on Brady’s wrist as he and his supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen stroll red carpets, attend galas and spend time in the spotlight. In more casual settings, you are apt to see Brady wearing a smartwatch. One of his favorite is believed to be the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45. Debuted in 2015, the Intel-powered timepiece syncs with both iOS and Android phones. Unlike other smartwatches, the design mirrors TAG’s traditional watches with a titanium case and a bezel that echoes the Carrera. Tom prefers basic black, but you can swap in straps in a variety of colors including red, green, orange and yellow.

(@futurechamp99) on May 17, 2016 at 10:31am PDT Brady also had a hand in designing a personalized dial on the TAG Heuer Connected. His signature face features the red, white and blue colors he sports on his New England Patriots uniform. It also has Tom’s name on the face and his number 12 prominently displayed in large form. Fan of a Classic Rolex Like other famous watch aficionados like Daniel Craig, Brady has been seen wearing a 50th Anniversary GV Rolex Milgauss.  Brady dons sharp suits when he wears his Milgauss and swaps out the watch’s Oyster bracelet for an elegant black leather strap. View this post on Instagram SOLD Another Milgauss in for stock, just came back from Rolex service centre so it comes with 2 year rolex guarantee! #rolex#milgauss#rolexmilgauss#rolexmilgaussgreen A post shared by @ europeanwatchgallery on Aug 8, 2017 at 7:10pm PDT Partial to Audemars Piguet In the days before he was an ambassador for TAG Heuer, Brady was often seen wearing an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Gold. With a design that dates to the early 70s without feeling locked in a time warp, the Royal Oak Gold is instantly recognizable. It’s notable because of the octagonal bezel with visible screws to give it an industrial-chic vibe. It has an 18k rose gold case and an elegant leather strap. The textured Grande Tapisserie dial combines to help create the unique look. He Was Once a Movado Man Years before Brady signed with TAG Heuer he was behind a limited edition Movado chronograph. It comes in two versions. One of the Tom Brady watches is crafted with a surgical grade stainless steel alloy. It’s dubbed “Performance Steel” and comes with either a black or silver dial. In keeping with the durability needed for an NFL star, the model has a Kevlar-reinforced XTremeResin strap. Or you can opt for a more refined model in 18 karat rose gold with an alligator strap. An IWC for Charity Brady was once the proud owner of an IWC Portugieser Chronograph Rattrapante. With 29 jewels and a gorgeous silver dial, this nickel-finished timepiece was a flashy entry in his enviable collection. Brady donated the watch for an auction to help Best Buddies, a non-profit that aids people with developmental disabilities. Tom is back on the field this fall. He broke a record in the Patriots’ season opener. Brady has the most wins by a quarterback over the age of 40.  We can be sure he’s celebrating while wearing a really nice watch.

  6. Watch Guide: NFL Stars and Their Luxury Watches

    From Rolex and Patek Philippe to Panerai and Breitling, NFL stars love their luxury watches. You can almost always catch top players with high-end timepieces on their wrists when they’re off the field. And sometimes on! Take a look at some of today’s football greats and the amazing watches they wear. Rolex is a Touchdown With NFL Players Rolex is by far the most popular watch in the NFL. Here are just a few of the top players that sport the luxury Swiss watch brand. Many call him “Matty Ice” but you could also call Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan “Kermit.” The latter is the nickname of the green-themed Rolex Submariner that’s often seen on Ryan’s wrist. With a vibrant green bezel that beautifully contrasts a black dial, the discontinued 16610LV sports watch is a must-have for serious collectors. Ryan’s teammate Julio Jones is all about the Sky-Dweller. Considered one of the best wide receivers to ever play the game, Jones also makes a statement off the field with the Everrose timepiece. The Sky-Dweller is a newer entry in the Rolex line, having debuted in 2012. It’s since gained acclaim for its durability and practical functions in a sophisticated package. Staying with Atlanta, running back Devonta Freeman makes a big impact with his yellow gold Day-Date Rolex President. At 41 millimeters, Freeman’s Day-Date is larger than most others in the line and stands out as an enviable dress watch. The Day-Date President has been a prestige timepiece since its debut in 1956, crafted completely of precious metals with a design that never feels dated. More Rolex Timepieces Known for his bold fashion choices, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton wears a Rolex Yacht-Master II when he’s off the field. One of the first luxury sports watches to garner international attention, the Rolex Yacht-Master has embodied the spirit of sailing since the 1950s. The chronograph that was crafted to withstand the rigors of regattas is a quintessential model of combining practical functions and timeless style.

A post shared by Cam Newton (@cameron1newton) on Jul 30, 2018 at 2:13pm PDT The star quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys often has a Rolex Datejust 41 on his wrist. Much like Dak Prescott’s classic style when he strolls red carpets, the Datejust is the epitome of enduring elegance. The watch debuted in 1945 and later incarnations have maintained the unique design that makes it one of the world’s most recognizable watches. Dak’s Datejust 41 features a dark rhodium dial that’s offset by 18 carat gold hour markers. A jubilee bracelet completes the classic design. Russell Wilson, the quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, has also been spotted wearing a Datejust. View this post on Instagram @gentsplaybook A post shared by Dak Prescott (@_4dak) on Jul 17, 2017 at 10:51am PDT De’Anthony Thomas is a big fan of the Rolex Daytona. The Kansas City Chief’s wide receiver has been spotted with his gold Rolex Daytona during warm-ups for the Valero Alamo Bowl. While it’s never been verified by photos or video, legend has it Thomas wore the watch during all four quarters. True or not, the Daytona is a good choice to withstand the blows of an NFL game. Check out a brief history on Rolex watches here. A Saint Who Sports Panerai As iconic as the city he plays for, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has a collection of Panerai watches. The Italian watchmakers have been crafting exclusive timepieces in Florence since 1860. “Breesus,” as he’s known by fans, has been spotted wearing a Historic Base Panerai Luminor, a minimalistic marvel with a black dial and vintage-style cream-colored markers. View this post on Instagram With a Power Reserve of ten days, the Luminor 1950 GMT Automatic Acciaio is a timepiece made to the highest standards of excellence. The P.2003 caliber is the first automatic movement entirely designed and created by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. Come and discover the Power Reserve models in the Panerai boutiques, we'll be delighted to tell you the fascinating story behind their solid, reliable movements available with power reserves of three, eight or ten days. #Panerai #PowerReserve #PAM533 #strenght #precision #reliability #watchesofinstagram #watchlover #timepiece #watchfan #watchoftheday #horology #watchuseek #watchaddict #watchcollector #sportwatch A post shared by Panerai (@panerai) on Jun 11, 2018 at 8:47am PDT Playing for Patek Philippe Malik Jackson’s first really big purchase was a Patek Philippe. The defensive tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars dropped $150,000 on a Patek Philippe World Time soon after he solidified his spot in the NFL. The watch models are recognizable by their dials that track multiple time zones, while the limited production has made them sought-after watches since their debut in the 1930s. But Malik didn’t stop there! He soon picked up a Patek Nautilus in rose gold and a Patek Philippe 5205 in white gold to complete his collection. View this post on Instagram Killin em Styled by Vick Michel (Mitchel) Glasses & BowTie Tom Ford Shoes & Belt ferragamo. Watch patek philippe world time A post shared by Malik Jackson (@themalikjackson) on Jul 13, 2016 at 4:42pm PDT Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is apt to have a Patek Philippe Calatrava gracing his wrist. His go-to Calatrava has a rose gold case with a sapphire crystal back and Patek’s trademark hobnail-style bezel. An enamel dial features Roman numerals and Rodgers finishes his watch with a sophisticated brown alligator strap. A Big Fan of Breitling One of the most fashion-forward players in the NFL has a love for Breitling timepieces. New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. gets attention for his talented work on the field. It’s hard not to notice his wild mane of floppy blond hair and the creative designs shaved into his scalp. But he’s also got a sophisticated side and we’re as likely to spot Beckham looking formal in a tailored suit at galas and events. That’s where you’ll see him wearing a custom diamond-encrusted Breitling chronograph. Wherever you find sports stars, you will encounter luxury timepieces and the NFL is no exception.

  7. Omega Watches Tokyo 2020 Olympics Limited Editions

    Alongside the latest Seamaster Aqua Terra, Omega has rolled out a few other special limited edition pieces to commemorate the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. It’s a story that’s more than eight decades in the making. Omega, the official timekeeper of the 2020 games, first had that role in 1932, when the games were held in Los Angeles. Omega watches has since been the official timekeepers of the Winter and Summer Olympic Games. Timepieces for Today’s Games When Olympics fever takes over Tokyo in the summer of 2020, Omega will watch the future unfold. Modern competitions such as skateboarding, karate, and surfing make their first-ever runs at Olympic gold. Simone Biles will be the gymnast to watch judging by her 2016 gold-medal showing. Swimmer Katie Ledecky also comes in as a favorite, while the ever-popular Team USA Basketball has also made the cut. New Speedmasters for Tokyo 2020 Looking ahead into 2020, Omega went back to its past for inspiration from their Professional Moonwatch, the Omega Speedmaster that was along for man’s first step on the moon in 1969. That classic style is carried over to the Speedmasters for the upcoming games. The new Omega watches come in five colors that represent (you’ve guessed it) the five colors of the Olympic symbols: red, yellow, green, blue and black. Omega came with color and the watch world took notice. Blue: The Tokyo Blue brings it in reverse panda-style with a brushed blue dial beautifully contrasted against popping white sub-dials. Purists love the trademark red font for the Speedmaster logo. Black: We have traditional panda style with a striking white dial and black subdials that peer through the minimalist face. Green: Green and gold is both an elegant and a bold choice, so just a touch of green please, on the bezel. Now bring on the glimmering contrast with Omega’s signature Sedna Gold in a balanced mix with stainless steel. Red: Red comes in bold and stormy. It’s seriously downplayed by an all-business light-grey saturated dial. But that robust ring of red around the face embodies its spirit and radiates an action-ready vibe. Yellow: Here we get a full-on tribute to Olympic rings with a medley of circles in yellow gold cast in sleek contrast with a matte black dial. Meet the 2020 Seamasters For the Seamaster Aqua Terra Tokyo 2020, Omega makes a sweeping change with the collection’s first-ever ceramic dial. The official Olympic emblem for the event is laser engraved across the high polish blue dial. At a solid 41mm case size with a sapphire case back, this Seamaster wears super sporty. They’re rolling out just 2,020 pieces (a bit on the nose, but okay). If you want to make a change from the all-stainless-steel motif, it wears wonderfully on the included blue rubber strap. On the Seamaster’s inside, you’ve got magnetic-resistant Omega Master Chronometer Calibre 8900 from a solid Swiss player in the industry. Omega Watches, More to It A nod to the games lies in the case’s solid back stamped with a competing continent. The switch from the traditional Speedmaster sapphire case back is a standout feature. Beyond that, these limited editions don’t veer too far from Speedmaster territory with polished and brushed 42mm cases, three-link bracelets and 1861 hand-wound movements. The Dial Let’s talk about that dial that mimics the Cubist-inspired logo for Tokyo’s games. It’s standing right out there like an art grad’s accent wall. Sooner or later someone is going to call attention to the design that would be at home on the set of a swinging’ evening variety show in 1964. Love it or not, it’s got an iconic style. Sticking with the sea, we also get the Seamaster Planet Ocean Tokyo 2020. The host country gets a salute in this watch Omega says has “a true Japanese touch.” Could they be referring to the Liquidmetal diving scale that would be at home in Japanese anime? Could it be the patriotic colors with a “lollipop” seconds hand that echoes the flag of Japan? A bezel filled with red liquid ceramic continues the country’s colors. This one wears in a refined kind of funky, or funky kind of refined on a white leather strap. Or go with the more traditional stainless steel bracelet or the NATO strap that’s in with the packaging. Flip the watch over to find a sapphire crystal case back with the emblem of the games on stainless steel that’s protecting an Omega Master Chronometer Calibre 8800 movement. Seamasters to Mark Moments It’s worth looking back just a few balmy summer months ago to when Omega bowed its Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black to commemorate tequila, mezcal and a wee splash of George Clooney. Going black-on-black, the watchmakers did a design meld with Casamigos Tequila and Mezcal, an artisanal agave producer in Oaxaca, Mexico that the actor co-owns. View this post on Instagram #omega #omegaplanetocean #omegacasamigos A post shared by Collecting Watches (@appanerairm) on Jun 25, 2019 at 8:40am PDT Chances are you won’t be in Tokyo for the Olympic games. More than likely you will catch them on TV, maybe have a mini addiction on something like Badminton or Dressage. And when you see the shining Olympic moment of triumph that inevitably happens, maybe you’ll want a piece of that history on your wrist with an Omega watch.
