While the free kicks leave a lot to be desired as Team Cristiano, sorry Portugal, crashed out of Euro 2024, at least Ronaldo’s watch game is still firing. An avid collector, CR7 has been wearing one of the most desirable Rolex models in recent memory, first launched in 2012, but since discontinued, at the time it was seen as a wild departure from the Swiss monolith’s more subtle forays into colour and bling, with 36 baguette-set sapphires in the bezel, 56 diamonds set into the lugs and case, and coloured sapphire indexes, along with a mother of pearl dial for good measure.

Second-hand versions tend to go for as much as a pretty nice house, which isn’t exactly an issue for Cristiano… but, yeah, they don’t come cheap these days.

Murat Yakin’s Carl F. Bucherer Manero Flyback

A debonair presence on the Swiss touchline, Murat Yakin might have the air of a Bond villain out to build a big laser to fire at 007, but there’s nothing bad about the watch on his wrist.

A thinking man’s luxury timepiece, Yakin has been a long-standing ambassador for Carl F. Bucherer, and has been spotted at the Euros wearing the brand’s Manero Flyback chronograph, a statement 43mm stainless sports watch with an intricate blue dial. Switzerland have been one of the pleasant surprises from the tournament, so you can expect to see plenty more of their manager looking a bit inscrutable on the touchline while Granit Xhaka bosses the midfield.

Vincenzo Montella’s Rolex Sky Dweller

The chaos element in the Euro 2024 draw, Turkey have been living for drama. Yellow cards, a massive, very enthusiastic fanbase and tactics that typically involve adrenaline and some good vibes. The man behind the machine is the Italian Vincenzo Montella, who’s been rocking a Rolex Sky Dweller during his managerial duties. In the long, storied history of Rolex, the Sky Dweller is a baby, first launching in 2012, the first entirely new model since the Yacht-Master debuted in 1992, it features a relatively large 42mm case, along with a fairly unusual annual calendar feature, a complication that requires a single adjustment on the part of the wearer once a year — when February turns into March — automatically adjusting to the correct date as long as it is running. A traveller watch, it features twin time zone functionality and a very pretty fluted bezel. The perfect sort of watch for globe-trotting football manager.
