Cristiano Ronaldo, reputed as being the best soccer player in the world right now, was pictured in a popular Spanish sports newspaper wearing an Admiral's Cup Competition 48 in red gold. Six pages were dedicated to the footballer in the paper.
The Portuguese super star is projected to become the highest-paid footballer in the world thanks to the US$ 132 million deal that saw him transferred to Real Madrid from Manchester United. Thanks in large part to his former team's conquest of the EUFA Champions league in 2008 he was named that year's FIFA World Player of The Year and was awarded the prestigious Ballon D'Or. He is the first member of Manchester United to win the Ballon D'or in forty years.
According to Corum, the Admiral's Cup Competition 48 that Ronaldo wears is made of 18 karat rose gold and set with rows of natural, full-cut diamonds. Perfectly suiting the young, wealthy athlete, the watch is large and sporty despite the traditional elegance of gold and diamonds. On closer inspection, however, I could not find any stones adorning the case. I believe that the watch is probably the non-diamond version of the Admiral's Cup 48 in red gold. Either way, the twenty-four year old phenom wears it very well.
