Also, the Spanish player Andrés Iniesta often wears his TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 watch. The piece was made in partnership with Google and Intel, and is said to be a crossover of luxury Swiss watchmaking and modern-day technology. Sahar, another colleague, thinks Spain will reach the semi-finals this year.
Next is Antoine Griezmann, the French titular playing the forward position this summer. His timepiece is a sophisticated Patek Philippe Nautilus model. It comes with a gradated dial, mechanical self-winding movement, and gold applied hour markers wit luminescent coasting. The watch also has a rose gold case and bracelet to complete the look, with the Nautilus fold over clasp. Here at Timepiece 360, we think France will make it all the way to the finals in Russia.
Following on our list is the one of, if not the best, football players in the world. The Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo was spotted wearing a limited-edition Jacob and Company H24 watch with a total diamond weight of 15.25 cts. The watch is valued at 130,000 dollars, and is certainly fit for the two-time winner of FIFA World Player Of The Year. Our colleague, Jalsahed believes Portugal will be this World Cup’s lucky champion.
Another favourite in the World Cup is Leo Messi, who has also had the privilege of receiving the FIFA World Player Of The Year award. The Argentinian worked in collaboration with Audemars Piguet and designed a limited-edition luxury watch named the No.10 Royal Oak Leo Messi. The entirety of the proceeds from the sales benefited the Leo Messi Foundation, and we think that Messi will better serve his country this year, taking Argentina to the semi-finals.
Many other footballers playing for one of the 32 teams competing at the Russia 2018 World Cup also share our love for timepieces, and we, here at Timepiece 360, are excited to watch them in action this summer.
