Cristiano Ronaldo rocked a $770k Jacob watch on his way to Saudi Arabia
Cristiano Ronaldo has just joined Saudi Arabia side Al-Nassr FC on a deal rumored to be worth $1 billion.
The former Real Madrid star arrived in style, rocking a gem-studded Jacob & Co. watch worth $770,000.
Earlier this week, Al-Nassr FC announced the signing of Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo in a landmark move for soccer in the Middle East.
Shortly after the announcement, Cristiano Ronaldo shared an Instagram video on his private jet on the way to Saudi Arabia.
Keen-eyed fans and watch enthusiasts couldn’t help but spot the bright green timepiece on his wrist.
The wristwatch is made by Jacob & Co., a watch brand Ronaldo has worked with for nearly 20 years now.
Officially known as the Caviar Tourbillon, this outstanding timepiece is made from gold and adorned with 388 baguette-cut tsavorites.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a brand ambassador for Jacob and Co., and together they’ve created numerous CR7-themed timepieces.
Among others, Jacob made a watch with a decoration on the dial depicting the star scoring against Manchester United in a 2013 game.
Jacob also famously makes a Bugatti Chiron-inspired wristwatch with a working W16 in it, and of course Ronaldo had to have one.
About Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr FC deal
In the summer of 2021, Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Manchester United – the club that put him in the limelight when he was still a teenager.
However, Man Utd terminated Ronaldo’s contract following a controversial and unsanctioned interview that Ronaldo gave ahead of the World Cup.
In January 2023, Ronaldo signed with Al-Nassr on a two-year contract with an option to extend the deal until 2030.
Ronaldo will remain at Al-Nassr as a player until 2025 and then he will become Saudi Arabia’s 2030 World Cup bid ambassador.
The deal is rumored to be worth $1 billion in total.
