0 comments

Karim Benzema watch collection - Born in Lyon to Algerian parents, the 34-year-old Karim Benzema is currently the rising star in the football industry, recognized as one of the best forwards of his generation. He competes as a striker for Real Madrid of La Liga and the France national team. His goals are on everyone's lips. In the 2021/2022 season, he has already achieved 37 goals. 


*Update on 18 October 2022* No wonder that Benzema was named as the World's Best Men's Player at the 2022 Ballon d'Or ceremony held in Paris, 17 October 2022.

But what interests keep Karim "The Dream" busy outside of the green pitch when he isn't busy winning games for his teammates? Well, as the feed of his Instagram profile also testifies, in his spare time, the bomber of Franco-Algerian origins delights as a collector of supercars and luxury watches, just like other football stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.


He owns several Rose Gold watches and they remind me of IFL Watches Rose Gold G-Shock CasiOak. Check it out!


I have curated some of his luxury watches in this blog post. Have an excellent read!

Karim Benzema Watch Collection - Rolex Root Beer

When I decided to write about Benzema's watch collection, I told myself to start with this picture because what you see on his wrist is one of my favorite watches ever! It looks so stunning. I proudly present the Rolex GMT Master II Root Beer in 18k rose gold 126715CHNR. I like this version rather than the two-tone. Benzema and I have the same taste, obviously hehe.


Current market price (July 2022): ~$55,000.

Karim Benzema Watch Collection - Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar

Karim Benzema and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar 26574OR​​

The French footballer was seen wearing an 18k rose gold Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar, a 41mm member of the “Royal Oak” family. Its silver-toned dial has a “Grande Tapisserie” pattern and features a perpetual calendar and moon phase indications. Watches with a perpetual calendar display the day, date, month, and a leap year. It means, a perpetual calendar corrects date and year cycle (and subsequently day, month, and moonphase too) in perpetuity.


If another question is raised, 'what is a leap year?' A leap year is a calendar year with an additional day added to synchronise the calendar year with the astronomical year. This additional day is added to the end of the shortest month, February (now you know why February has 29 days once every four years). Scienctific speaking, Earth takes approximately 365.25 days to orbit the sun. So, it needs 366 days to orbit every four years. 


Therefore, to make up for the missing day, we add one day to our calendar approximately every four years. Any year evenly divisible by 4 is a leap year, for example, 2000, 2004, 2008, etc.

The famous striker for Real Madrid was seen sporting a very limited Richard Mille RM 055 Yas Marina Circuit. The around $690,000 Richard Mille RM 055 Yas Marina Circuit, which is only available in 50 pieces and has a case composed of more than 600 layers of carbon fiber, is surely a technical giant. 

Karim Benzema Watch - Richard Mille 055 Bubba Watson

Another Benzema's Richard Mille watch that I want to mention is this white ceramic RM-055 Bubba Watson. This is one of my favourite Richard Mille watches. There is just something special with this timepiece. This watch was made originally for the famous golfer Bubba Watson. This beauty is inspired by the RM 038 Bubba Watson tourbillon watch presented in 2011.


It features an extreme skeleton movement due to the titanium case and has a ceramic ATZ front bezel. Its mechanical movement, crafted in grade 5 titanium, displays extreme skeletonisation. The RM 055 is a highly technical creation that is innovative, sporty, and hand-finished in the finest watchmaking tradition.
