At the most recent match between Inter Miami and Lionel Messi, the Patek Philippe Aquanaut Chronograph made a statement, demonstrating the timekeeping elegance of the player.
A watch with a case made of white gold and a stunning dial made of midnight blue is the wrist candy that the man who is considered to be the greatest of all time wears.
It is currently Patek that Lionel Messi wears.
The legendary Argentine soccer player has a vast collection of watches from a variety of brands, but as of late, he has been favoring the Genevan timepiece that is owned by his family. At the Best FIFA Football Awards, which took place in Paris in February of last year, he wore a platinum Perpetual Calendar Chronograph with the reference number 5270P. At the World Cup, which took place many months earlier, he wore a white-gold Nautilus Perpetual Calendar with the reference number 5740/1G. His watch is a white-gold Aquanaut Chronograph with the reference number 5968G.
Before his Leagues Cup encounter on Wednesday at DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, Messi wore the Patek at the beginning of the contest. The attacker scored twice to help Inter Miami defeat Orlando City 3-1 in the first edition of the tournament, which allowed Inter Miami to proceed to the round of 16. When he was on the field, he once again demonstrated the elegance and precision of a chronograph.
In the year 2021, Patek brought out a white-gold Aquanaut Chronograph with the reference number 5968G. In addition, the checkerboard dial on the $75,700 model is either khaki or midnight blue. The face that Messi opted to wear was a midnight blue with a black gradient rim.
The delicate inner workings of the watch are protected by the white-gold case that has a smooth finish and is slightly more than 42 millimeters. It is unaffected by water up to a depth of 394 feet (120 meters). In accordance with the rounded octagonal shape of the bezel, there is a date display at three o’clock and a sixty-minute counter at six o’clock. Utilizing the flyback function of the self-winding mechanical movement (with a caliber of CH 28-520 C), the center chronograph hand is transformed into a seconds hand that is always present.
To match the dial, the composite strap is blue. The watchmaker’s innovative fold-over clasp has four independent catches for strength and longevity.
In addition to Patek, Messi also wears watches from Audemars Piguet and Rolex. During the signing of his $80 million contract with Paris Saint-Germain in 2021, the football player wore a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master and a limited-edition Royal Oak from AP. In the year 2023, Patek is his primary concern.
