Why Pep Guardiola’s Watch Stood Out As A Big Conversation During The Champions League Game..

While Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was watching his team play Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday April 9, his watch was standing out as truly newsworthy all over the world.

Guardiola was wearing a luxurious Richard Mille watch worth £1 million ($1.26 million) on his wrist at Madrid’s Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, which is owned by Warner Bros. Discovery.

The restricted edition watch — one of just 50 made, is the lightest mechanical watch made, as per the designer, weighing just 18.83 grams including the lash. That is identical to around four sheets of A4 or US letter-size paper.

“This Champions League Rule Should ‘Thrown Out’ Of The Competition”

The Richard Mille watch was initially intended for 22-time Grand Slam tennis champion Rafael Nadal to wear while playing, thus every component was painstakingly designed to limit its weight.

The monobloc back of the watch is produced using carbon, making it impervious to shocks and scratches as well as extraordinarily light, while the titanium baseplate is connected to the case by four steel cables, each 0.35mm (0.01 inches) in measurement.

Guardiola often wins applause for his style on the sidelines. His love of fashion dates back to early in his footballing career; in 1993, while playing for Barcelona FC he trod the catwalk for Spanish designer Antonio Miró.
