Top Watches at World Cup Qatar 2022

comments

One of the most anticipated football games has finally come! The 22nd  FIFA World Cup is currently taking place in Doha, Qatar, from 20 November to 18 December 2022. 


This is the first World Cup to be held in the Arab world and the second to be held entirely in Asia, following the tournament in South Korea and Japan in 2002.


I hope you have been enjoying the matches so far. For watch enthusiasts, not only are the games interesting but also spotting top watches on football players' or VIP guests' wrists. 


It has been more than a week; several luxury watches were spotted on some players, for instance, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr., etc.


Excellent watches have also been spotted on VIP guests like David Beckham and, of course, on the team managers' wrists, such as on the manager of the Uruguay team, Poland team, etc. 


Without further due, let's dive in!

Top Watches at Qatar World Cup 2022 - Harry Kane and Rolex Daytona 'Rainbow' 116595RBOW

Fun fact: He was wearing this 'Rainbow' watch as a possible sign of protest. The host nation Qatar is totally against homosexuality. Teams were told not to wear OneLove armbands in support of LGBTQ+ communities. 


German players protested by placing their hands over their mouths before their match against Japan. 


Kane's rainbow Rolex - potentially a reference to the rainbow Pride flag - could be interpreted as a similar symbolic protest.
