The Rolex Watches of Ted Leonsis and the Washington Capitals NHL Team
Game 5 of the NHL’s Stanley Cup is scheduled for Thursday, June 7, where the Vegas Golden Knights and the Washington Capitals will battle it out for glory. As Washington leads 3-1, if they win the next game, they cinch the most coveted cup in professional hockey. While we eagerly wait to see how the next game pans out, let’s have a quick look at what Rolex watches the Capitals’ owner, Ted Leonsis, and players TJ Oshie and Evgeny Kuznetsov wear on their wrists.
Ted Leonsis’ Rolex Watches
Billionaire, Ted Leonsis is the founder and CEO of Monumental Sports & Entertainment, which owns the Washington Capitals hockey team—as well as the NBA’s Washington Wizards, WNBA’s Washington Mystics, and plenty of other professional sports teams.
With such wealth, it comes as no surprise that Ted Leonsis often wears a luxury timepiece on his wrist, including several Rolex watches. We’ve spotted Ted Leonsis wear at least three different types of Rolex watches. The first is a full yellow gold Yacht-Master 40, which is actually no longer in production. The second Rolex watch we’ve seen Ted Leonsis wearing yet another Yacht-Master 40, but the platinum and stainless steel version. And finally, continuing with the Rolex sports watches theme, we’ve also noticed Ted Leonsis with an ultra-luxurious 18k white gold Submariner with the blue ceramic bezel and blue dial—complete with the unfortunate nickname, the Rolex “Smurf.”
TJ Oshie’s Rolex Watch
Right winger for the Washington Capitals, TJ Oshie may not have had enough money on his Metro Card to exit the station to make it to Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday (he was eventually let through by the Metro employees), but he certainly has the budget for nice watches!
One of TJ Oshie’s watches that caught our eye is his stainless steel GMT-Master II with the black and blue Cerachrom ceramic bezel. Due to its unique colorway, this particular GMT-Master II, which is part of the brand’s current collection, is also known as the Rolex “Batman” in watch collecting circles.
Evgeny Kuznetsov’s Rolex Watch
The 26-year-old Evgeny Kuznetsov is a center for the Washington Capitals and the Russian native has been flaunting some serious hockey skills during the Stanley Cup Finals so far, picking up four assists in Game 4 to help the Capitals get one step closer to their ultimate goal.
In this Instagram video with his famous teammate and captain of the Capitals, Alexander Ovechkin, we see Evgeny Kuznetsov with a distinct Rolex watch on his wrist. It’s none other than the full Everose gold Rolex Sky-Dweller with a 42mm case size and one of the most complicated Rolex calibers ticking within that provides the watch with an annual calendar and dual time zone functionality.
With Game 5 just around the corner, it’ll certainly be a big day for the Washington Capitals and the NFL. The Capitals are one win away from the Stanley Cup. Will the DC-based hockey players win the cup or will the Las Vegas Golden Knights bounce back and win Game 5 to take it to Game 6? Stay tuned for the action!
