Pep Guardiola's $1.26 million watch is making headlines after the Champions League match


As Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola watched Real Madrid take on Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday, his watch was making headlines around the world.

Guardiola wore a £1 million ($1.26 million) luxury Richard Mille watch on his wrist at Madrid's Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. According to TNT SportsIt is owned by CNN's parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery.

The limited edition timepiece – one of only 50 ever made – weighs 18.83 grams including the strap, according to the designer. This is equivalent to about four A4 sheets or US letter size paper.

It was originally designed for 22-time Grand Slam tennis champion Rafael Nadal to wear while playing, so every element was carefully designed to minimize its weight.

Guardiola's Manchester City won the Champions League last year.

The watch's monobloc back is made from carbon, which is resistant to shocks and scratches and incredibly light, while the titanium baseplate is attached to the case by four steel cables, each just 0.35 mm (0.01 in) in diameter.

Guardiola has often won plaudits for his style, and his love of fashion dates back to early in his football career; In 1993, while playing for Barcelona FC, he walked the catwalk for Spanish designer Antonio Miro.
