The biggest annual event in American sport was played out yesterday and the Rams won their first title in 22 years. However, as is always the case with the Super Bowl, there is much more to talk about than what happened on the pitch.
This year, the event included Ye in a McDonald's commercial, hip-hop royalty performing together at the halftime show, Drake's million-dollar bet, and a very expensive addition to LeBron James' wrist.
The "Tiffany Blue" Patek Philippe Nautilus Ref. 5711 was released in December of last year, less than a year after the Genevan company discontinued the model which was considered to be its most popular. Limited to only 170 editions, as a celebration of Patek Philippe's 170th anniversary, Thierry Stern, Patek Phillipe's president told CNBC: "This is really the last round for this watch.”
At that time, VIP clients were able to purchase the watch for $52,635 apiece, considerably less than its current value on the resell market. One of the watches hit the auction block for charity courtesy of Phillips and was sold for over 100 times its original price at $5,350,000 with an all-in cost of $6.5 million, which gives an indication of how much the watch will set you back today.
Watching the Super Bowl, and vibing out to the half-time performance by Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Mary J. Blige, the LA Lakers basketballer joined the likes of Jay Z and Leonardo DiCaprio in owning the watch grail.
The timepiece was part of an outfit that did not hold back on accessories, as James' made the case for pearls for men not going anywhere, wearing a pearl necklace along with a selection of silver-toned neckpieces. On his right wrist was a similar build-up of jewelry in the form of multiple bracelets, paired with a large ring and there's no prize for guessing what was adorning his left wrist.
Including a Dries Van Noten shirt and rare Air Force 1's, the whole look was a mood for the upcoming spring season. Check it out, along with shopping links to each piece (bar the extremely rare timepiece) below.

Getting into the SoCal vibe at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, James rocked a short-sleeve shirt from Dries Van Noten along with shorts and, keeping to the theme of wearing grails, a pair of Kith-exclusive brown and pink Nike Air Force 1's first released in 2016.
