Carmelo Anthony’s Watch Collection

It’s not unusual to see a successful NBA star with a high-end watch. But Carmelo Anthony – OKC Thunder forward, Olympic medalist and entrepreneur – is on a league of his own.

A watch collector for more than a decade now, he chooses a scholarly approach to collecting, studying a timepiece’s history and mechanisms, and diversifying his collection to include almost every luxury watch brand out there.

Here are the pieces in Carmelo Anthony’s watch collection, running the gamut from Rolex to Breguet:
 br
br
Rolex Yachtmaster
br
Anthony has a pair of one of Rolex’s largest watches, the Rolex Yacht-Master II. He alternates between the 18k yellow gold and stainless steel version, both of which have the bright blue, scratch- and fade-resistant Cerachrom ceramic bezel.
 br
Breguet Marine Royal
br
The basketball star has a penchant for watches that combine luxury and sport – and the Breguet Marine Royal is just that. While pretty in design, the watch is very functional, with water resistance of up to 300 meters, a rotating diver’s bezel and an alarm feature.

Rolex Sky Dweller

Yet another large Rolex in Anthony’s collection is the Rolex Sky-Dweller, which boasts 14 patents and is positioned as the ultimate luxury watch. He also has at least two of them – one in white gold and another in yellow gold. We won’t be surprised to find this Everose version somewhere in his watch box.
 br
Hublot Ferrari
br
Anthony describes the Hublot Ferrari as one of his fun pieces. Hublot became the official high-end watchmaker for the iconic Italian sports car brand back in 2011. For someone who’s also a car collector, this watch is right up Anthony’s alley.
 br
brPanerai Luminor Marina
br
Anthony also has a thing for rose gold pieces saying that “you can never go wrong” with it. For Panerai in particular, rose gold creates a beautiful contrast – the warmth of the alloy, combined with the utilitarian features of the watch, makes for a stunning yet robust piece.
