Cristiano Ronaldo Is The Owner Of The Most Expensive Rolex Watch In History


Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the select few in the world to own the most expensive Rolex watch in history.

The Juventus forward appeared at the Dubai Globe Soccer Awards back in January last year wearing a Rolex GMT Master Ice.

It will have set the five-time Ballon d’Or winner back a hefty £371,000 thanks to the timepiece being made up of 18-karat white gold.

In addition, 30 carats of white diamonds are also included across the bracelet and bezel.

Only a select number of clients own the watch which is described as ‘A perfect fusion of both extravagant luxury and technological innovation’ by Bob’s Watches.

It was revealed last year by The Sun that Ronaldo had become football’s first-ever billionaire in 2020.

The 36-year-old, who was named the highest-paid footballer on the planet, according to Forbes, was also the highest-earning athlete in lockdown after making nearly £1.9 million through Instagram alone.

With a total of over 400 million followers across all social media platforms, as well as his $65 million annual salary and bonus at current club Juventus, Ronaldo remains one of the best paid athletes in sport.

Ronaldo raked in $105 million overall for 2020, which included $45 million from Nike, Altice, Herbalife and his own CR7 brand, and made $1 million more than long-time rival Messi.

But in 2021, the Portugal captain missed out on becoming the highest-paid athlete on the planet after Conor McGregor pipped him to the post.

Despite only stepping into the Octagon once last year – a comprehensive win over Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone – the 32-year-old is at the summit of Forbes’ prestigious list, surpassing the likes of Lionel Messi, Ronaldo and LeBron James.
