Brazil’s midfielder Casemiro is never one to shy away from the watch game. Case in point: the blockbuster timepiece he was recently spotted wearing at a press conference during the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

The watch in question is Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin Openworked, sculpted in pink gold to celebrate the Royal Oak’s 50th anniversary.

This glittering wrist candy is highlighted, of course, by its open-worked slate grey dial, which flickers against pink gold applied hour-markers. Meanwhile, a smart, new movement, the Calibre 7124, drives the model and can be admired through a sapphire crystal case back.

The Royal Oak, with its blend of high horology and versatility, has drawn huge interest from collectors, but also powerhouse athletes as well, and has also been photographed on the likes of Neymar, LeBron James and Virgil Van Dijk.
