Not only is LeBron James well-known for his skills as a basketball player, but he is also revered for the impact he has had in the fields of fashion and culture. His watch collection is nothing short of spectacular, with prominent items such as the Black Panther Offshore and various Richard Mille watches among the collection’s offerings. LeBron James has collected an incredible collection that exemplifies both his one-of-a-kind aesthetic and his deep respect for high-end timepieces.
Let’s have a look.
5. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo 50th Ann. – $70,500
On multiple occasions, LeBron has been seen and photographed donning the yellow gold version of his AP Royal Oak Jumbo 50th Anniversary watch.
In point of fact, you may recognize that very same AP in several of his posts on Instagram.
The watch is distinguished by its construction made of gold and the’smoked’ yellow gold toned dial that it features.
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 – $150,000
The RM 011-03 is one of the most well-known and best-selling models produced by Richard Mille, and it is offered in an extensive variety of hues as well as spin-offs.
This specific model features a quartz casing, which was initially developed and patented by RM. Additionally, it is outfitted with an orange rubber strap, which draws even more attention to the watch.
The ‘Jean Todt’ and the ‘Felipe Massa’ are only two of the many pairs of RMs that LeBron truly owns.
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 – $350,000

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 – $118,000

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 – $6,150
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.
