LeBron Designs $51K Limited Edition Audemar Watch (Video)
LeBron James can do more than dominate every facet of the game on the hardwood. James is well rounded, intelligent, and judging by the video below, a high end watch designer as well.
The reigning NBA MVP teamed up with Audemars Piguet from Switzerland, to create a $51, 500 limited edition Audemar watch titled the Chronograph by LeBron James.
Only 600 of the watches were made, and according to CNBC, James said he “took a liking to watches growing up and when the opportunity presented itself it was an easy yes for him.”
LeBron James, the NBA two-time champion and four-time most valued player, teamed up with Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet to design a $51,500 limited edition watch.
The watch, called the Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph, comes with an 18-karat pink gold case, black ceramic and diamond set push pieces, and a hand-stitched gray crocodile strap. Six-hundred of these watches went on sale at the end of September.
“Anytime I do anything or have a partnership with anyone that has my name on it, I like to have a lot of personal trace in it,” said James, whose signature is printed in blue on the sapphire crystal in the back of the watch.
One day soon, I will purchase my own Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph by LeBron James.
