Performance of a Similar Model
Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo has a penchant for extraordinary watches, usually reaching for gem-studded pieces and exclusive editions. CR7 also has several unique timepieces in his collection that were produced specially for him.
Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the biggest names in the sporting world. He's been crowned World Player of the Year and awarded the Ballon d'Or multiple times. Ronaldo has played as a forward for soccer clubs in England, Spain, and Italy, and captained the Portuguese national team, helping them win European Football Championship and Nations League titles.
Off the pitch, Ronaldo is also a seasoned luxury watch collector, which his 500+ million social media followers have seen time and time again. CR7, as he's better known among fans, has great taste in watches and doesn't often shop off the rack. His collection is home to so many exceptional timepieces, special editions, and one-of-a-kind models. Though Ronaldo definitely has a type: Most of his watches have stately dimensions and tend to be "iced out," i.e., dripping in diamonds and other gemstones.
Cristiano Ronaldo's watch collection is extensive, but he does have an affinity for timepieces from Jacob & Co.. The New York luxury watch manufacturer has created many signature models for the star, including Epic X Flight of CR7 and the Epic X Heart of CR7. Ronaldo also owns an Epic SF24 Tourbillon with a split-flap display, a Caviar Flying Tourbillon "Tsavorites", and various diamond-studded versions of the Five Time Zone.
The most impressive Jacob & Co. in his collection is undoubtedly the Bugatti Chiron Tourbillon CR7 Edition. This watch and its movement were designed to resemble the engine in Ronaldo's real-life Bugatti Chiron, and even replicated the 16-cylinder mechanism. That's not all, the case and movement of the CR7 Edition are decorated with 232 diamonds and 109 black sapphires, weighing a total of 21 carats. The price is just as highbrow as the watch itself, at 1 million USD. If you can do without diamonds, you can buy the Jacob & Co. Bugatti Chiron for around 350,000 USD on Chrono24.
Ronaldo's most expensive watch is the Girard-Perregaux Planetarium Tri-Axial, which he bought for around 1.7 million USD. Coming in a close second is the Franck Muller Cintrée Curvex Tourbillon and the Imperial Tourbillon Invisible-Set Baguette Diamonds at about 1.5 million to 1.6 million USD apiece. His Jacob & Co. Grand Baguette from the Ghost collection also breaks the 1 million USD mark.
