High end watches have been the first accessory men attain as a status of wealth and class. Rolexes, Audemars Piguets, and Hublots are a few of the brands which are at the epitome of high end watch design. Sports stars such as Derek Jeter, Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Tiger Woods, and Tom Brady have been seen with these magnificent high end watches. Recently, one of the greatest basketball players of all time decided he wanted something that speaks his name, literally. Shaquille O’neal also known as “The Diesel,” was recently featured on the magnificent limited edition Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore.

The basketball icon towers over the basketball world with his 7 foot 1 inch 324 lb frame. At the twilight of his career he topped the most distinguishable record in the NBA, scoring 25,000 points. In honor of his achievement, the high end Swiss watch maker, Audemars Piguet, released only a limited quantity of these watches, in order to preserve its exclusivity… and let me be the first to say the watch looks amazing!

What’s really impressive is that each watch is marked on the back with Shaq’s signature logo as well as the number produced. Retailing at over thirty five thousand dollars, this watch is one that only a select few could afford. Of course, the “Diesel” himself doesn’t have that problem.
