Lionel Messi made his debut for Inter Miami over the weekend, and although there has no shortage of expensive wrist candy, LeBron James wearing a pink-goldRolex day-datefor the occasion.
At the Leagues Cup play on Friday between Inter Miami, the host team, and Cruz Azul, from Mexico, the sport's biggest star and first active millionaire was seen wearing a gorgeous Rolex watch. The match was being played between Inter Miami, the host team, and Cruz Azul, from Mexico.
Inter Miami and Cruz Azul were the two teams competing in the game. Messi struck a magnificent strike in the 94th minute of the game against Cruz Azul, which proved to be the game-winning goal and gave his team a 2-1 victory.
According to Essentially Sports, James wore a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40 watch in 18 ct Everose gold for Messi's spectacular debut.
It was difficult to overlook James's Day-Date 40 watch when he was snapping shots of his fellow GOAT because the watch was on his wrist the entire time.
The crown's patented 18-carat pink-gold alloy known as "Everose" is used to construct the robust 40 mm case of the ref. 228235, which also features an olive-green dial with an eye-catching sunray finish. The watch also has a date window at 3 o'clock.
The watch was presented to the public for the first time in 2016. A fluted bezel, which was originally intended to help the watch keep its waterproofness but is now more generally linked with the watch's streamlined style, is yet another distinguishing characteristic of the timepiece.
This Day-Date watch comes with the President band already attached as standard equipment. This bracelet gives the watch an air of refinement without making it appear to have too much glimmering going on.
It was decided to make the bezel and bracelet out of Everose so that there would be a sense of consistency between the case and the bracelet and bezel. Roman numerals and day-and-date windows are two more time-honored features that are frequently seen on ancient timepieces.
The caliber 3255, which was developed in-house and winds itself, provides the power for the clock, which is accurate to within (-2/+2) seconds every day.
This movement also gives the watch an impressive power reserve that lasts for 70 hours, which is almost the same as 47 games of soccer. The fact that the wrist candy can withstand water pressure of up to 330 feet (or 100 meters) is the cherry on top of an already impressive feature set.
LeBron James Shocks Lionel Messi With Emotional Surprise Greeting In His Inter Miami Debut!
With a price tag of approximately $41,500, the Rolex is one of the more approachable models in James's collection of luxury timepieces.
As a point of reference, the great athlete's Diamond-Encrusted "Eye of the Tiger" Rolex Daytona and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept "Black Panther" Flying Tourbillon were once listed on the resale market with respective asking prices of $214,900 and $163,900.
The famous NBA player also has a luxurious Patek Philippe Nautiluswatch with a Tiffany-Blue dial in his collection. The highly desirable model has been known to sell for as much as $6.5 million at auction, despite the fact that it was initially released with a price tag of $52,635.
If this is the case, the Day-Date is probably the superior choice for serving as your daily beater.
