Chris Paul Is A Watch Connoisseur

I’ve been lucky enough to hang out with Chris Paul on numerous occasions, but none more than his cover shoot for Dime #61. I flew down to New Orleans for the day, and one thing I’ll never forget is the jewelry that CP3 brought with him. I’m talking a box with diamonds on diamonds on diamonds. And for every different look, he had a different watch to go with it.

Recently, Chris opened up to Maxim about his watch obsession, and it’s safe to say he has a lot of time on his hands.

How many watches are in your collection?
That’s hard to say because I have so many kinds: G-Shock, sports watches, Jordan watches. But luxury watches, I have 12 that I take everywhere I go.

Why bring them all?
Because I just never know where I’ll be going or what I’ll be wearing.

Do you have a favorite?
A limited-edition Breitling. They only made 3,000, and they gave me number three, which is my number. Cal Ripken got number eight.

What’s the most you’ve ever spent on a watch?
Aw, man, I don’t know. Maybe 50 grand or so.

A lot of guys don’t wear watches because they have clocks on their cell phones.
To each his own. Someone may enjoy big open land and someone might buy a horse or something. I enjoy watches.


What do you think? What’s your watch collection look like?

    50K cap on his watches? Guess no Audemar in CP’s collection (yet)

  • Jason

    You can get an AP for well under $50k!

    I can dig it. I’d be the same way with CP3’s money, probably worse.
