If you had a $2 million watch, would you wear it on a football field?
Probably not, but Cleveland Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. didn’t seem worried.
Never one to shy away from attention, Beckham went to a new level after wearing an expensive Richard Mille watch during last week’s game. That watch cost about $200,000.
The one he wore during pregame warmups Monday night was reportedly 10 times more valuable. When ESPN showed him before kickoff it appeared he left the watch in the locker room, hopefully guarded carefully by someone. The NFL told Beckham he couldn’t wear the watch during games due to a rule prohibiting hard objects.
Odell Beckham Jr.’s rare and expensive watch
Here are a couple looks at the fancy watch:
Some internet sleuthing found that it was a watch worth more than $2 million. Yes, that’s right.

The RM 56-02 case has to be milled and ground from solid pieces of sapphire and any mistakes can result in the piece cracking. It takes 960 hours for one case. there is almost 1500 hours of sapphire machining in a single watch.

That’s one way for Beckham to celebrate his return to New York, where he started his career with the New York Giants.
