With Super Bowl LV just a couple of days away, leading pre-owned Rolex retailer Bob’s Watches took it upon themselves to curate the “Top NFL Luxury Watches: Super Bowl Edition” – a watch roundup of your favourite players and their championship-worthy timepieces.
Nothing can stop the Super Bowl, not even a global pandemic.
On Sunday, February 7th, 2020, the show will go on, with the game set to take place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
Grammy award-winning artist, The Weekend is scheduled to perform during what is expected to be an exhilarating halftime show.
The NFL is one of the most profitable sports leagues in the world. The Dallas Cowboys alone were worth a staggering $4.8 billion in 2019.
As of 2020, the average salary for NFL players was $860,000, with the highest-paid athlete being Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who pocketed approximately $53 million in 2020.
Even the lowest-paid professional football players have some serious cash to spend on various luxuries, and this certainly includes a wide variety of luxury watches.
Here is what the football-loving team at Bob’s Watches recommends based on the timepieces they are known to own:
Patrick Mahomes – Kansas City Chiefs
We’ll start our list with none other than quarterback Patrick Mahomes. With a 10-year contract worth more than $500 million, the 2018 MVP has enough money to buy pretty much any luxury watch his heart desires.
He seems to favor Rolex, with his collection featuring some of the most expensive watches in the brand’s lineup.
One that stands out is the Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 126710BLNR featuring the beloved black and blue “Batman” bezel paired with a Jubilee bracelet for the first time.
It tops nearly every Rolex enthusiast’s wish list, and Patrick Mahomes paired his Super Bowl ring with this prized Rolex, making for a truly envious combination.
Tom Brady – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tom Brady, now with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, was spotted with an IWC Top Gun on his wrist while partaking in the festivities at Super Bowl LIV.
Brady has been an ambassador of the brand since 2019 and boasts an impressive IWC watch collection, including both the Timezoner and Top Gun Miramar.
IWC isn’t the only brand in Brady’s watch box. The former New England Patriots quarterback also has an enviable Rolex collection, including the cult favorite Milgauss ref. 116400GV with a green sapphire crystal and a classic gold Presidential Day-Date.
Containing over 20 luxury watches, we’d jump at the opportunity to take a peek at Tom Brady’s collection any day.
Travis Kelce – Kansas City Chiefs
As the Super Bowl LIV champs, it only makes sense to highlight another player’s watch collection from the Kansas City Chiefs.
Tight end Travis Kelce’s contract is worth between $14 million and $15 million, giving him a very generous budget to build out his watch collection.
Two of his favorite Rolex models appear to be a classic yellow gold Day-Date President and a 41mm White Rolesor Datejust with a diamond dial that he has been photographed wearing on numerous occasions.
Mitchell Schwartz – Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz is another one of the highest-paid athletes in the NFL.
His contract ending this year is worth a hefty $11.255 million. It isn’t surprising that his watch box includes such giants as Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Vacheron Constantin.
He set tongues wagging in 2018 when he posted a photo of his watch roll to his Instagram account, showing what appears to be watches from all three brands, including the iconic blue dial Rolex Sky-Dweller.
