Lionel Messi, the Barcelona and Argentina footballer (and widely recognized greatest player of all time) is clearly a man of style and taste and it is little surprise to see the leading light in the world of football has joined forces with one of the biggest names in the luxury watch industry in the form of Audemars Piguet. The Swiss watchmakers are, much like Messi himself, recognized as one of the very best in the business and with a partnership with the world’s greatest football, their popularity is set to soar still further.
The spectacular Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Leo Messi watch above has definitely got a similar presence to the footballing idol and the bold, striking appearance of the timepiece reflects the footballing wizard’s exceptional ability on the pitch. Whilst it is by no means a cheap timepiece, costing in excess of £20,000 ($30,000), it is one that can justify the price-tag through both the quality craftsmanship that goes into its construction and the exceptional materials that are used.
Just a few of the more eye-catching features of this exemplary timepiece include:
• 40 Hour Power Reserve
• 50m Water Resistance
• Sapphire Crystal Glass Case
• White Gold Watch Hands
• Limited to 500 Pieces
• Engraved Case Back
A breath taking watch of some considerable standing, the Royal Oak Leo Messi watch is certainly one for the horology (and football) aficionados and it will definitely score plenty style points aplenty.
