1/6 David Beckham’s Tudor Black Bay Chrono S&G

Tudor is known as the "working man's Rolex," and happens to be David Beckham's preferred brand of choice. He's been photographed countless times wearing the Black Bay Bronze, which is a heritage-inspired piece influenced by Tudor's history that’s fitted with an in-house calibre.

More recently, he’s been spotted with the newly-released Black Bay Chrono S&G.

2/6 LeBron James’ Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore “LeBron James”

Valued at SGD$96,000, NBA heavyweight LeBron James’s very own limited edition Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore is a head-turner. Set in a 44mm rose gold case with a brushed titanium bezel, a plethora of diamonds elevate this timepiece from the extraordinary to the ultra-extraordinary. Not ones to shy away from making a statement, LeBron and Audemars Piguet are a match made in heaven.

3/6 Rafael Nadal’s Richard Mille RM27-02

The Spanish tennis player's specially designed Richard Mille RM27-02 is made with cutting-edge shock absorption technology, with a design inspired by the chassis on racing cars.

The mechanical wristwatch in orange pays homage to the clay courts of Roland-Garros in Paris, home of the French Open, where Nadal has proved victorious for so many years—although he recently had to swap the strap for Wimbledon, owing to its strict all-white rules.

4/6 Tiger Woods’ Rolex Deepsea D-Blue

Earlier this year, Tiger Woods won his first Masters Tournament in 14 years—his fifth, overall—while wearing a Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea D-Blue. An ultra-resistant divers’ watch engineered for deep-sea exploration, it might not be the obvious go-to you would associate with an international golfing champ, but its twilight-blue dial makes it a must-have accessory.

This special model was released in 2014 to commemorate James Cameron's historic solo dive to the bottom of the Mariana Trench.

5/6 Tom Brady’s Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph 01

The first player in history to have won six Super Bowls, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been a Tag Heuer ambassador since 2015. The Tom Brady Special Edition in stainless steel with a ceramic fixed bezel is powered by the automatic Tag Heuer calibre 01.

A blue dial displays the date, constant seconds, and 30-minute and 12-hour registers, while the case back displays Brady's jersey number–12–along with his signature in a striking red.

6/6 Cristiano Ronaldo’s Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis

With an impressive net worth estimated to be SGD$152 million, it’s unsurprising that Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo wears an enviable piece of wrist candy.

His custom-made Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi Axis in King Gold features over 100 baguette-cut diamonds on the case and bezel, and is powered by the brand’s in-house calibre–a self-winding movement complete with five-day power reserve.
