The football superstar left Barcelona last week, after 21 years spent at this club…
What kind of watch should you wear on your hand during the first day of your new job? If you ask Lionel Messi, the answer is pretty simple – a Rolex. The Argentine footballer was seen with a beautiful pink gold Yacht Master model on his wrist, when he arrived in Paris to sign a contract with the PSG team on Tuesday afternoon. The sporty elegant watch was a suitable choice for a football player who signs his first contract with a team aside from the one in which he grew up.
FC Barcelona shocked the entire sports world last week, when they announced that Messi would leave their stadium after twenty-one years. Years of poor financial management and the recently implemented salary limit meant that the Spanish club could no longer afford Messi, even when the famous footballer agreed to stay for a far lower salary. According to the speculations, Messi, who is loyal to Barcelona, is not very enthusiastic about moving to Paris, but it is obvious that he is trying to turn this bad situation in his favour. The first step he took - signing a new contract with a smile on his face and a Yacht Master watch on his hand.
Specifically, it is an Oyster Perpetual Yacht Master ref. 126655, which is a real beauty, described as a watch that defined an era. Its 40 mm diameter case is made of 18-carat Everose gold, and it contains a black dial and a matte black ceramic base. It is powered by a new generation 3225 automatic mechanism, with a power reserve of 70 hours, while it comes with a durable Oysterflex bracelet, with a matching Everose clasp. The watch is sold at a price of 27,300 dollars, which is certainly not small, but since Messi got a new contract worth 40 million dollars a year, it is a real trifle for him.
