The GOAT of the NBA, businessperson and actor Michael Jordan, wore a stand-out Urwerk UR-220 RG watch at the motor racing complex in Tennessee.
A golden circle timepiece got all eyes turning when the NBA legend and NASCAR team owner Michael Jordan showed off the latest addition to his collection, a Urwerk UR-220 RG, at the Ally 400 race inside the Nashville Superspeedway.
Michael Jordan and his ‘dad’ jeans might not fit into today’s fashion-forward NBA, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t left his sartorial mark. For starters, there’s the sneaker empire that bears his name and logo entitled Jordan Shoes & Trainers and let’s not forget the legendary signature hoop earring.
You know, the one lives on his right ear that gave him a branded look of confidence, strength, and diversity? However, our eyes have drastically turned to his wrist, and it seems like his sophisticated watch collection has expanded once more.
While most athletes change up the wrist game regularly – the Patek Philippe Nautilus, Rolex Daytona, and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak–across their wrists, MJ has gone in a different direction by picking out high-priced pieces from niche, high-minded watchmakers.
From his success as a professional American basketball player, Olympic athlete, businessperson and actor, Jordan is considered one of the best basketball players; after becoming the most decorated player in the NBA with five regular-season MVPs and three All-Star MVPs.
Gold hoops aren’t the only things that he cares about. He’s got something for watches, too.
Jordan owns many watches from Ulysse Nardin, Richard Mille, and Roger Dubuis, but his most worn is Urwerk. And why wouldn’t he? This company falls above the 25 most expensive watches money can buy. This novel watch from the Swiss boutique brand shows time uniquely.
Powering the watch is Urwerk’s in-house Caliber UR-720 movement. The manually wound mechanism features 59 jewels and a single mainspring barrel energy source.
But real luxury is to have time. And to not even know the time by the second, to have your feel of the time.” Safe to say, it’s also about a Miami Vice-inspired, red gold, roughly $150,000 watch.
Now, this figure is nothing for Michael Jordan, whose net worth is valued at $1.7 billion, but one add one of these Urwerk UR-220 RG watches to the vault and trust me, you’ll be talked about.
