At just 23 years old, Slovenian NBA Star Luka Doncic has already broken records. The Dallas Mavericks point guard has produced one of the best starts to a career in league history, earning back-to-back All-NBA First Team Honors and setting record triple-doubles.

Luka is also winning in the style department, with his impeccable street style and red carpet looks. On his wrist is a well-curated selection of iconic timepieces. Check out the watches of Luka Doncic.

One of Luka’s favorite timepieces is the Rolex Submariner Date ref. 126618 in solid yellow gold. This watch hails from the newest collection of Submariner timepieces, made modern with a larger 41mm case and a new automatic Caliber 3235 with a 70-hour power reserve.

The ref. 126618 combines the precious metal with a classic black dial and unidirectional a Cerachrom bezel. The yellow gold-outlined luminous hands and indices add an elegant touch, while the polished Oyster bracelet ties the look together.

Luka also owns a solid 18k yellow gold Rolex Daytona, which is known as the modern “Paul Newman” (ref. 116508). Introduced in the 2000s, this watch evokes the signature style of Paul Newman Daytonas of the past while adding the heft and substance of the modern Daytona.

Its key features include a 3-colored dial in black, gold, and red and an Art Deco-style font in the sub-dials. The engraved tachymeter bezel and applied luminous markers provide an interesting flair to the enduring design. Inside the Oyster case is an automatic Caliber 4130 with a 3-day power reserve and a vertical clutch and column wheel for flawless chronograph operation.

While the iconic Audemars Piguet Royal Oak made history as the first steel luxury sports watch, it has been made in various precious metals. Luka prefers the 39mm yellow gold version, also known as the Royal Oak ‘Jumbo’ Extra-Thin (ref. 15202).

 

 

This watch was first introduced in 2000 but AP modified it in 2012 to commemorate the collection’s 40th anniversary and to make it look more like the original Jumbo reference. Its gold dial with a petite Tapisserie waffle pattern and applied luminous indices pairs well with just about anything, while the AP logo above 6 lends interest. This watch makes a big statement, so you can go for a smaller 36mm model (featured above) if your wrist is on the thinner side.

Luka also made space for an avant-garde watch among his classic timepieces – the Hublot Big Bang Evolution, launched as a follow-up to the brand’s most famous offering, the Big Bang. His choice model features a rose gold construction, paired with a structured black rubber strap.

Moreover, the watch boasts eccentric details that complement the precious metal: a black carbon fiber bezel with six screws and a black carbon fiber dial with a distinct woven effect. Both elements add character and definition to the timepiece. Thanks to its short lugs and broad case profile, the Big Bang Evolution also sits comfortably on the wrist.
