May 18, 2018

A trio of Rolexes for the top basketball player

Considered one of the best basketball players ever, and voted as one of the most influential athletes by Forbes magazine, Lebron James is a force to be reckoned with. His his awards, accolades, and game are the stuff of legends, so it comes as no surprise that many believe LeBron James has rightly earned his nickname “King James”. Although he’s a known Audemars Piguet brand ambassador, (and AP even created a Royal Oak Offshore in his name) LeBron James is a Rolex fan too as seen by his choice in wrist-gear. As the NBA season is coming to a close and LeBron Jame is looking to make his ninth NBA Finals appearance, we take a look at his three top gold Rolexes: Day-Date II, Yacht-Master II, and Sky-Dweller.

Rolex Day-Date II

Rolex Day-Day II

Rolex Day-Day II

When LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers won the 2016 NBA Championships, they celebrated big during their victory parade in Cleveland. And on LeBron Jame’s wrist was a very noticeable yellow gold Rolex Day-Date II. The Day-Date II was Rolex’s updated version of their classic President watch with a  larger case. Measuring 41mm rather than the traditional 36mm, the Day-Date II is a great option for those looking for a larger luxury dress watch. Although the Day-Date II is now discontinued, it’s still a very popular watch model. LeBron James’ particular Day-Date II has the black dial, Roman numerals, and fluted bezel. A classic configuration for Rolex’s most prestigious timepiece.

Rolex Yacht-Master II

At 44mm, the Yacht-Master II is currently the largest Rolex watch available within the brand’s catalog. Making its debut in 2010, the Yacht-Master II is also a complex one outfitted with a regatta timer. A bold statement watch-especially in yellow gold—the Yacht-Master II comes with a bright blue Cerachrom ceramic bezel. Plus, the bezel, dubbed the Ring Command bezel, also controls a part of the automatic mechanical movement within to regulate the regatta timer. There are four versions of the Yacht-Master II-steel, yellow gold, white gold and titanium, and steel and rose gold-and LeBron James’ choice is the 18k yellow gold version.


Rolex Sky-Dweller

In 2012, Rolex launched the Sky-Dweller, making it the newest collection from the brand. Moreover, it’s also one of the most complicated within the Rolex lineup. Its complexity, along with its gold construction, makes it one of the most expensive too. The case of the Sky-Dweller Rolex is 42mm and it houses the Rolex Caliber 9001 movement. The automatic mechanical watch movement drives a number of complications. In addition to the center hour, minute, and seconds hand, there’s also a 24-hour display, instantaneous annual calendar, and month display. The Sky-Dweller is available in 18k white, rose, and yellow gold. Furthermore, there are different dial options and a choice between metal bracelets or leather straps. But the Sky-Dweller of LeBron James is the full yellow gold edition with a champagne dial.

LeBron James’ three Rolexes are fantastic ultra luxurious models from the Swiss watchmaker. And judging from this picture from his Instagram page, this Rolex fan is in good company.
