In the glamorous world of high-end watches, where timepieces whisper secrets of sophistication and luxury, Lionel Messi steps up the game, not just on the football field but in the fashion stakes as well. Sporting an Patek Philippe World Time Minute Repeater 5531R, Messi isn’t just keeping time; he’s making it jealous.

This isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill watch that you accidentally dunk in your morning cereal. Oh no! The Patek Philippe 5531R is crafted from 18k rose gold, which I assume is only sourced from the rosiest of roses. Introduced at BaselWorld 2018, this watch is rarer than a sighting of me at the gym.

Now, let’s talk about the complications, because in the world of luxury watches, “complications” are a good thing (unlike in real life). The reference 5531 combines world time and minute repeater functions for the first time in Patek Philippe’s storied history. That’s like combining chocolate and peanut butter, or the internet and cats—a match made in heaven.

The world time function is perfect for when Messi jets off to score goals in different time zones and needs to remember to call his mom. And the minute repeater? It’s like having a tiny Big Ben on your wrist, only much quieter and far more expensive.

But the pièce de résistance is the watch’s dial. It features a cloisonné enamel center, which depicts a Lavaux (Switzerland) landscape. Because when you’re the GOAT of football, only a picturesque Swiss landscape will do on your wrist. It’s basically wearable art. Imagine glancing down during a boring meeting to see a mini Swiss escape; it’s enough to make you sigh wistfully, forgetting you’re just in the office and not yodeling on a mountaintop.

So, if you ever wonder what it feels like to have the weight of such elegance on your wrist, just look at Messi playing a 90-minute match. That’s probably the closest most of us will get to experience the luxurious heft of a Patek Philippe 5531R. But hey, we can dream, can’t we? Just make sure your dream doesn’t involve cereal this time.
