As the world was eagerly counting down the seconds to bid adieu to 2023, one man took the New Year’s Eve fashion game to a whole new level—none other than the soccer legend himself, Leo Messi. While the rest of us were figuring out which pair of fuzzy socks to wear, Messi decided to celebrate in style, sporting a brand-new, out-of-catalogue Rolex Cosmograph Daytona ‘Rainbow.’ Yes, you read that right—Messi’s wristwatch was probably more expensive than the fireworks lighting up the sky!

Messi, decked out in his signature dapper suit, raises his wrist, and bam! There it is, the blinged-out timepiece that could blind you faster than Messi’s quick footwork on the field. This wasn’t just any Rolex; it was a time-traveling, jaw-dropping, and wallet-emptying masterpiece.

Now, let’s break down the specs of this wrist-rocket, shall we? The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona ‘Rainbow’ in 18k yellow gold boasts a black dial with champagne sub-dials, 36 baguette-cut rainbow sapphires on the bezel (because, why not?), 56 brilliant-cut diamonds on the case, and 11 baguette-cut sapphires posing as hour markers. If that description didn’t make you gasp, you’re either a jeweler or a superhero with a heart of steel.

This watch is so exclusive that it probably has its own VIP section in jewelry stores. And here we were, thinking a calculator watch was the pinnacle of cool back in the day. Now, let’s take a moment to appreciate the fact that the Rolex ‘Rainbow’ Daytona has undergone a glow-up in the past few years. Introduced in 2018 in 18k rose gold, it made a splash in 2022 with its unveiling in 18k yellow gold and white gold. Why settle for one gold when you can have them all?

As the rest of us were busy making resolutions about hitting the gym or learning to cook a decent meal, Messi was boldly declaring, “I resolve to tell time in style!” Move over, Big Ben; Messi’s wrist just became the new landmark for keeping track of the minutes slipping away.

In a world where most of us are just trying to figure out if our microwave clocks are in sync with our smartphones, Messi’s Rolex escapade is the comedic twist we all needed. Maybe 2024 is the year we should all embrace the philosophy of Messi: when life hands you time, make it golden, rainbow-studded, and utterly over-the-top. Here’s to a year filled with laughter, bling, and, of course, impeccable timing, courtesy of Leo Messi’s wristwatch extravaganza! Cheers to Messi’s New Year’s resolution that made us all question our watch choices.
