The Watches of Russell Westbrook

Nine-time NBA All-Star Russell Westbrook is widely known for his athleticism and high level of intensity on the court. Outside the sport, he makes heads turn with a killer fashion sense – so much so that he’s been dubbed NBA’s “King of Style”.

Russell knows how to make an entrance with avant garde suits on the red carpet and trendy street style for post-game pressers. On his wrist, he sports a select line-up of bold and eye-catching timepieces. Check out the watches of Russell Westbrook:

 

GMT Master Sprite

 

Rolex GMT-Master II Sprite

Russell was spotted at the recent NBA Summer League wearing Rolex’s most buzzworthy release of 2022 – the GMT-Master II “Sprite.”

The “Sprite” (ref 126720 VTNR) got the watch world talking not just because it had a new green-black combination for the Cerachrom bezel – a first for the GMT Master line – but also because the crown, crown guards, and Cyclops date window are placed on the left side of the case. This makes the piece particularly suited for left-handed folk like Russell. He wears the Jubilee bracelet edition, which adds value and impeccable style.

 

Datejust Everose

 

Rolex Datejust 41

We’ve also seen Russell wearing a Rolex Datejust 41 while he was on the courtside. Given his large frame, the generous proportions and the classic looks of this timepiece are a perfect fit.

The NBA star went for the two-tone Everose Rolesor model, which works as a daily wearer or a statement piece depending on how it is styled. The fluted bezel and Jubilee bracelet lend an extra dressy touch, while the diamond hour markers complement the warm luster of the metal.

 

AP Royal Oak Openworked

 

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Openworked

Perhaps the most complicated timepiece in Russell’s collection is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked. Its robust exteriors and visually powerful aesthetic are the perfect complement to his eclectic fashion sense.

This model boasts a patented geometry where a second balance wheel and balance-spring assembly are placed on the same axis, greatly improving the watch’s precision. The full skeleton dial allows wearers to view the intricate movement at work, while the 18k rose gold construction, pink gold hour markers, and matching hands offer a stunning contrast against the grayish dial. The NBA star has worn this unique watch on the red carpet.

 

Day-Date 40

 

Rolex Day-Date 40

Considered the ultimate symbol of success and accomplishment, the Rolex President Day-Date has somehow become the de facto watch of NBA players. After all, getting into the NBA is “making it”.

Russell also marked his rise within the industry with the famous Presidential watch. His preferred version is a Rolex Day-Date 40 with a yellow gold finish. The case is enhanced with a crisp black dial, polished lugs, and a fluted bezel, while baguette cut diamond hour markers elevate the look. Solid three-piece links in a satin and high-polish finish and a concealed Crownclasp shows off Rolex’s masterful design.

 

Zenith

 

Zenith Pilot’s Watch

In 2014, Russell was named brand ambassador of Zenith. The partnership made way for a limited edition timepiece named Pilot Montre d’Aéronef Type 20 Annual Calendar Tribute to Russell Westbrook.

A sporty take on the classic Zenith Pilot’s watch, this bold timepiece boasts of a 48mm stainless steel case and a bright blue dial and alligator strap. The orange Russell Westbrook official logo, small seconds hand, and central chronograph hand provide striking contrast, while large Arabic numerals with SuperLuminova SLN C1 lume offer better reading of the dial.

 

Zenith

 

Inside, the watch runs on the illustrious El Primero caliber 4054, which provides 50 hours of power reserve. Only five pieces of this watch were made and one of them belongs to the NBA star himself.
