From Rihanna’s Jacob & Co. to Jay-Z’s Richard Mille, here are the best watches seen at the Super Bowl LVII
Rihanna’s Jacob & Co. Brilliant Skeleton Northern Lights
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes may have turned in a gutsy performance for the ages on Monday morning, but ask most people who owned the night and they’ll say, Rihanna. The billionaire pop star made her return to performing following a six-year absence in a stunning custom-made, entirely red outfit from Loewe topped off with an Alaïa jacket. What really caught our eyes, though, was the show-stopping Jacob & Co. Brilliant Skeleton Northern Lights watch on her wrist. The US$72,000 timepiece, which was fitted with a crimson band to match the rest of her look, is covered in 281 round-cut white diamonds. The mogul paired the eye-catching bauble with a number of pieces of diamond jewellery from Messika, including the Maison’s Unique Illusionnistes mono earring, a section of the famed Diamond Equaliser necklace and Illusionnistes clip.

Troy Kotsur’s Omega Constellation Co Axial Master
With the exception of Mahomes and Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts, there was no one whose hands were more important than Troy Kotsur’s. The actor, who won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in Coda, signed the national anthem during the pre-game ceremonies. On his wrist for the stirring performance was the US$6,700 Omega Constellation Co‑Axial Master Chronometer.
Michael Strahan’s Patek Philippe Nautilus Travel Time 5990/1R-001
Former New York Giants star Michael Strahan understands the importance of the Super Bowl. The hall of famer-turned-broadcaster was lucky enough to get his hands on the Vince Lombardi Trophy during his final season in the NFL. That might explain why the stylish Strahan decided to pair a blue checkered suit with a rose gold Patek Philippe Nautilus Travel Time Chronogrpah 5990/1R-001. The Swiss watchmaker knows its way around a sophisticated sports watch, and this US$118,280 model, which features a sunburst blue dial and three complications, is an 18-karat gold spin on one of the world’s best.
