Ronaldo’s Expensive Clocks
Aside from his fame as one of the best players in the history of soccer, Cristiano Ronaldo has also become one of the most marketable and highest-paid athletes on the globe. As a reward for his success, Cristiano isn’t shy about amassing an array of blinged-out timepieces. His collection of watches includes anything, and everything that we all aspire to have and smartwatches4u.com produces a comprehensive amount of guides and reviews on this. Below is a look into this star’s collection.
Rolex Cosmograph Daytona
Regarded as one of the most highly-functional sports watches, the Daytona offers the best of both worlds. Its ruggedly-elegant design is otherworldly, whether worn on the race track or under the cuff. As a person who’s always keen about opulent touches on his watches, the full 18,000 yellow-gold construction, as well as the diamond hour markers, makes the Daytona a perfect watch for him.
This is Rolex’s most complicated and advanced watch. Specifically designed for world travellers, it features two complications: an annual calendar and a dual timezone or GMT complication. Besides this rare complication, the Ring Command bezel adds to Sky-Dweller’s uniqueness. It’s indeed a watch in a class of its own.
Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 01
Cristiano’s unique taste and penchant for standout pieces caught the attention of Tag Heuer, making him their ambassador in 2014. He’s indisputably the most effective representative for the avant-garde, exquisite watches of this brand. The complex, skeleton-dial Carrera Calibre 01 is his preferred choice from Tag Heuer’s collection. One of this watch’s iconic features is the transparent, monochromatic dial that allows wearers to view the calibre of the automatic chronograph.
Tag Heuer Grand Carrera
Still from the Tag Heuer collections, Grand Carrera adds to Cristiano’s favourites. Carreras is a premium family and has COSC-certified movements or sporting chronometers. Also, the superstar owns the “CR7” limited edition which was created in recognition of his collaboration with the brand in 2015.
Hublot Aerofusion King Gold
This is the watch that Cristiano wore when he attended the unveiling of his bronze statute when the Santa Caterina Airport was renamed after him. Besides its sizeable 45mm case made of exclusive “King Gold”, the watch also features an elegant black dial with needles in the centre, and a date window located at 6 o’clock. The black crocodile leather strap with King Gold deployment buckle gives it an executive appearance.
Meccaniche Veloci 4 Valve
Cristiano has been a long-time lover of Meccaniche Veloci models and started donning this brand’s timepieces as early as 2011 when he was at Real Madrid. Quattro Valvole Nite Lite is his favourite in this collection. It contains rose gold and diamonds, in addition to the four separate ETA 2671 automatic movements and an alligator strap from Louisiana.
Off the pitch, Cristiano is also famous for having a one-of-its-kind Franck Muller watch. It bears the 424 white and red diamonds set in the dial and a finished by a bracelet in white gold. The 15.25 carats makes the watch very pricy, going for about €2,000,000.
