Top Watches at Ballon d'Or 2022
Watches at Ballon d'Or 2022 - Karim Benzema is breaking the internet! For the very first time, the French football player Karim Benzema won the men's Ballon d'Or, capping off a stellar season with Real Madrid that included Champions League and Spanish league titles. The 34-year-old Benzema had his best season at Real Madrid, scoring the most goals in both leagues.
Benzema edged out players such as Robert Lewandowski, Premier League player Kevin de Bruyne, etc.
Actually, after I read the news, I was a bit surprised that Lionel Messi was absent from the list of 2022 finalists. Well, Messi already won the title for a record seventh time, and alongside fellow superstar Cristiano Ronaldo have shared 12 of the last 13 Ballon d'Or trophies. Should be fine, huh?
Several luxury watches were seen during the ceremony held at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris on Monday, 17 October 2022.
Let's check watches at Ballon d'Or 2022!
