LeBron James is not only renowned for his basketball prowess but also for his influence in the realms of fashion and culture. His watch collection is nothing short of remarkable, featuring notable pieces like the Black Panther Offshore and multiple Richard Mille watches. LeBron James has curated an impressive assortment that showcases his unique style and appreciation for luxury timepieces.
Let’s have a look.
5. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo 50th Ann. – $70,500

LeBron has been photographed wearing his AP Royal Oak Jumbo 50th Anniversary in yellow gold on several occasions.
In fact, you can spot that very same AP in a few of his Instagram posts.
The watch is characterized by its gold construction and the ‘smoked’ yellow gold toned dial.

It retails for $70,500 but it’s impossible to buy, which is why it is now trading at a premium in the secondary market.
How much? You’re looking at half a million dollars.
4. Richard Mille RM 011-03 – $150,000Image: Instagram / LeBron James
The RM 011-03 is one of Richard Mille’s most popular and best-selling models and it is available in a myriad of colorways and spin-offs.
This particular model sports a quartz case, invented and patented by RM, and it is fitted with an orange rubber strap, which makes it even more noticeable.
LeBron actually owns a variety of RMs, including the 011-03 ‘Jean Todt’ and the ‘Felipe Massa’.

As ever with RM, it is extremely difficult to establish the market value of its pieces because they’re just so rare.
In theory, watches from the RM 011-03 line are available starting from $150,000 but in practice, get ready to spend $500,000 or more.
3. Patek Philippe Sky Moon Celestial – $350,000Image: Instagram / LeBron James
The Sky Moon Celestial is a ‘proper’ watch for ‘proper’ collectors who want more than the Aquanaut and the Nautilus.
The watch is available in yellow gold or white gold, and it features a beautiful dial (in black or blue) representing the night sky in the northern hemisphere.
It seems LeBron replaced the standard black leather strap with a read leather band.
The watch retails for around $350,000, but it can be had in the pre-owned market for as much as $1.5m.
2. Diamond Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore – $118,000Image: Instagram / LeBron
You can’t really talk about LeBron James’ watch collection without mentioning the numerous Royal Oak Offshore models he owns.
Including the much-hyped Black Panther model.
He also owns a diamond-set – an ‘iced out’ Offshore with factory diamonds on the dial and the case.
The gold case features 341 brilliant-cut diamonds in total.
Amazingly, this is the only watch on the list with a secondary market price that’s lower than the retail price.
It cost $118,000 when it was new but you can now get it for ‘just’ $97,000.
1. Rolex Oyster Perpetual Coral Red dial – $6,150Image: Rolex
LeBron owns a plethora of Rolexes, including many Perpetual models with colorful dials.
The series was unveiled last year and it made collectors go crazy.
This is the Coral Red dial version, but LeBron also owns the coveted ‘Tiffany blue’ dial version.
He was recently spotted wearing his Coral Red dial Rolex while sitting courtside, watching a game with rapper Drake.
The watch retails for $6,150 but it’s perpetually (pun intended) sold out, so be ready to fork out $20,000 or more.
