Michael Jordan may have been making a lot more money than Scottie Pippen in their Chicago Bulls heyday but that's not exactly reflected in their wild watch game. In the first episode of ESPN’s 10-part documentaryThe Last Dance, both basketball legends sported timepieces by luxury Swiss manufacturer Roger Dubuis — wrist candy that boasts a combined total of $377,000.

Jordan wore Roger Dubuis's Excalibur Spider Pirelli - Automatic skeleton worth a reported $72,000. Meanwhile, Pippen wore a Roger Dubuis Excalibur Double Flying Tourbillon – White Gold watch worth an estimated $305,000.

Pippen has sported some impressive timepieces in the past, including a blinged-out Hublot Power in King Gold with his own face on it, worth an estimated $70K — but the limited edition Roger Dubuis watch he wore in episode one of The Last Dance is on a whole other level.

As the only watch manufacturer in the world to have the majority of its timepieces embossed with the Poinçon de Genève, the most demanding signature in fine watchmaking, Roger Dubuis has carved out an exclusive niche in the watchmaking world. The Excalibur Double Flying Tourbillon is widely considered to be one of its most iconic creations.

During the episode, fans learned about Pippen's $18 million, seven-year-long contract, which was considerably lower than his teammates. But based on his watch game, it appears the Chicago Bulls alum has done extremely well for himself in the intervening years.

If his pricey timepiece doesn't align with Pippen's comparatively low salary with the Bulls, it's because he went on to earn an estimated $20 million more than Jordan by the end of his career. Pippen's estranged wife even tweeted a Bleacher Report stat that shows Pippen made $109,192,430 over the course of his career.
