Rafael Nadal Watch: $525,000 Timepiece At French Open (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Rafael Nadal is wearing a little something extra on his wrist at the French Open this year, and it's worth more than a half-million dollars. The tennis superstar is equipped with a valuable watch under a new sponsorship agreement. The Independent reports that the timepiece is a "specially designed lightweight watch, only 50 of which will go on sale." Total cost? $535,000.

According to the New York Times, the arrangement is unusual because "most [tennis players] who are paid to wear luxury watches do so only at press conferences and charity matches."
