Messi Watch – The Humble Collection

Lionel Messi Watch – The Humble Collection

0 comments

Lionel Messi watch collection - Who doesn't know the Argentinian footballer Lionel Messi? He is undoubtedly one of the greatest football players of all time. The legend has won Ballon d’Or (the annual football award presented by the French news magazine France Football since 1956. It honors the male player deemed to have performed the best over the previous year, based on voting by football journalists) seven times, while his on-field rival Cristiano Ronaldo has two less than the PSG star. 


He is a well-known soccer player who has won numerous awards and also an avid watch collector, just like Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski, Neymar Jr., Luka Modric, Harry Kane, etc., who has amassed a beautiful collection of high-end watches.

Interestingly, his watch collection mostly consists of "not-so-expensive" watches compared to, for instance, Christiano Ronaldo. By not-so-expensive, I mean below $100,000. Come on; he must have tons of money in his pocket. He could basically buy expensive watches above $500,000. 


Now let's take a closer look at this renowned soccer legend's humble watch collection.

Messi Watch: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak

In the early 2010s, Lionel was also an ambassador for Audemars Piguet and was often spotted with his classic stainless steel Royal Oak. One of them is the Royal Oak Jumbo Extra Thin 15202 with the white Tapiserrie dial  (currently, the 15202 is only offered in the highly sought-after blue dial). 


Like most Royal Oaks, the price of this piece has skyrocketed, and currently, July 2022, traded on the secondary market for around $87,000.

Some years ago, Audemars Piguet introduced a limited edition Royal Oak Chronograph dedicated to Messi. There were 500 pieces in steel, 400 in red gold, and 100 in platinum, all featuring a tantalum bezel! In this photo, he wears the one in stainless steel with a chronograph grey dial.   


The Leo Messi Royal Oak’s pure and elegant dial does not repeat the "tapisserie" motif that is the Royal Oak’s trademark. The dial is vertically brushed anthracite with hour markers in white gold for the steel version and pink gold for the pink gold version, while the platinum version sports a deep blue dial with white gold hour markers. 


By the way, this is AP’s first limited edition Royal Oak in the new 41 mm case and it also features a brushed dial without the Royal Oak signature tapisserie pattern.   


Current market price (July 2022): ~$90,000

We know that before joining Paris Saint Germaine, Messi was part of the Barcelona football team. Then, after 21 years with the club, he left and joined the PSG. 


The day he arrived in Paris to sign the $80 Million PSG contract, he was seen wearing the gorgeous Rolex Yacht-Master in Rose Gold 126655 on a black rubber strap. Well, I think he made a good choice to wear this sporty-yet-elegant watch on his first day at a new job.


Retail Price: $27,300.
Market Price July 2022: ~$39,000.

Currently, this model is traded for around $45,000 on the grey market,  that is slighly higher than the one with the black dial. The 'blacktona' sells on the grey market for around $39,000.
