7 NBA Players With Their Own Signature Watches

0 comments

Corporations hungry to be associated with celebrity have already laid claim to NBA players’ feet, but recently they’ve proven that they’re determined not to stop there. The next battle for million-dollar NBA endorsement contracts is being waged for the wrists of professional basketball players, as luxury timepiece manufacturers set their sites on ballers-turned-horlogers. Only top-tier talents get their own signature timepieces, however. Here are seven NBA players who have won the rights to custom wrist game.

 
 

Russell Westbrook
Brand: Zenith

Signature watches: Pilot Type 20 Annual Calendar Russell Westbrook LE
 

It took a surprisingly long while for arguably the NBA’s most stylish baller to get his own timepiece. Russell Westbrook’s Zenith 48-millimetre chronograph went public earlier this month, with manufacturing limited to only five pieces. Westbrook took part in its design, which features an El Primero 4054 movement, automatic winding and a 50-hour power reserve. Day and month are displayed at the three o’clock, below which lies Westbrook’s own signature. It comes with a matching blue alligator strap and retails for $11,900 US.

 
 

LeBron James
Brand: Audemars Piguet 

Signature watches: Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph LeBron James
 

LeBron James signed onto Audemars Piguet more than two years ago, and has his received a signature timepiece worth $51,500 US. His Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph from Audemars Piguet comes in several variations, most notably one featuring a 42-millimetre, 18-carat pink gold case with anthracite dial. A chronograph complication captures hours, minutes and seconds, while another displays the date.

 
 

Dwyane Wade and Kobe Bryant
Brand: Hublot

Signature watches: Classic Fusion Dwyane Wade, King Power Dwyane Wade Chronograph, King Power Black Mamba Chronograph
 

Hublot is the only brand that can claim two NBA players on its roster—then again, the Swiss company is the NBA’s official timekeeper. Dwyane Wade and Kobe Bryant have both been tapped as the company’s official brand ambassadors. Both Wade and Bryant have received their own variation of Hublot’s King Power chronograph, while Wade recently celebrated the release of his Classic Fusion Dwyane Wade piece. 

 
 

Tony Parker
Brand: Tissot

Signature watches: PRC 200 Tony Parker LE 2013
 
The four-time NBA champion is not an ambassador for a watch company, but rather for Make A Wish. However, when he helped raise more than € 200,000 for the non-profit, Tissot awarded the San Antonio Spurs player with his own signature PRC 200 limited edition timepiece, whose production was limited to only 4,999 units. It features Parker’s jersey number nine on the face as well as the silhouette of a basketball. 
 

Danny Green
Brand: Holler

Signature watches: The Danny Green Collection
 

Danny Green also has a timepiece with his name on it—five of them, in fact. The NBA champion’s signature series from Holler features five different face designs inspired by his career, from his college days through to his current gig playing for San Antonio. The watch is housed in a 55-millimetre steel case, and sits on the wrist with a silicon strap.

 
 

Kyle Lowry 
Brand: Citizen Watch

Signature watches: TBA
 

Apparently, Kyle Lowry’s performance during last year’s playoffs did not go unnoticed. The Toronto Raptors point guard revealed his new endorsement deal with Citizen Watch over Instagram four weeks ago. Lowry may potentially have a watch of his own design on the way, along with the honour of being one of the few ballers in the league deemed hot enough to get his own wrist piece.
