Apparently NBA superstar Lebron James isn't content with being the best basketball player on the best team in the world. He wants to be a master watchmaker, too. The NBA two-time champion and four-time most valued player, recently joined Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet to design a $51,500 limited edition watch with a run of 600 watches.
"I always liked watches growing up. When the opportunity presented itself it was easy to say yes," James told CNBC in Geneva, Switzerland, at the watch factory in late August.
The Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph (pictured below) comes with an 18-karat pink gold case, a hand-stitched gray crocodile strap, and black ceramic and diamond-set pushers. Lebron's signature is printed on the back of the watch. All proceeds will go to charity.
