Conor McGregor is a Heavyweight Rolex Collector
Superstar MMA champ Conor McGregor makes headlines wherever he goes. Whether it’s when he’s winning yet another UFC belt or in the boxing ring with Floyd Mayweather, the celebrity athlete has rightly earned his nickname “The Notorious.” Conor McGregor once said in an interview that he likes to buy a luxury watch every time he wins a match. And given his fighting record, that’s quite the collection he’s building! While the professional fighter has plenty top names in his luxury watch collection, such as Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet, it seems he’s predominately a Rolex man. Let’s get a closer look at Conor McGregor’s Rolex collection.
Conor McGregor Loves a Rolex with a Green Dial
Maybe it’s because he’s Irish or maybe it’s just because a green dial looks fantastic on a yellow gold Rolex watch, but Conor McGregor loves a green-dial Rolex. We’ve spotted him wearing the 18k yellow gold Daytona ref. 116508 with a vibrant metallic green dial, which was released at Baselworld 2016.
To complement the green Rolex sports watch, Conor McGregor also has the dressy 18k Everose rose gold Day-Date 40 ref. 228235 with the olive green anniversary dial. This particular green dial was also released in 2016 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the famed Rolex Day-Date President watch.
Conor McGregor Wears Plenty of Rolex President Watches
It’s only fitting that the King of UFC would gravitate towards Rolex President watches and Conor McGregor has several to go around. In addition to the Everose President we mentioned above, he also has an 18k yellow gold Day-Date 40 ref. 228238 with a baguette diamond dial.
Furthermore, Conor McGregor also owns the top-of-the-line platinum Rolex President Day-Date 40 ref. 228206. How do we know it’s platinum? Because it has the ice blue dial—a shade exclusive to platinum Rolex watches. Plus, the dial also has baguette diamond indexes for that extra shine.
Conor McGregor Appreciates the Larger Rolex Watches
A big personality needs a big watch and Conor McGregor does not disappoint in that department. He has in his Rolex collection some of the bigger models offered by the brand. First, there are the 42mm Sky-Dweller watches—yes, that’s plural. In addition to the Everose gold Sky-Dweller ref. 326935 with a brown chocolate dial, he also has the yellow gold Sky-Dweller ref. 326138 with a champagne dial and brown leather strap.
But the famous fighter doesn’t stop there. He also has the even larger 44mm yellow gold Yacht-Master II ref. 116688 with the bright blue Cerachrom ceramic bezel and crisp white dial.
If Conor McGregor sticks to his statement about buying a new watch for every win, we can expect a lot of other fine timepieces to grace his wrist in the near future. We’ll be keeping an eye to see if other Rolex watches make the cut.
