Pep Guardiola's $1.26m watch makes headlines after Champions League match

·1 min

While the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals between Manchester City and Real Madrid was underway, manager Pep Guardiola’s watch caught the attention of the media. The extravagant timepiece, worth £1 million ($1.26 million), was a limited-edition Richard Mille watch, renowned for being the lightest mechanical watch ever made. Originally designed for tennis champion Rafael Nadal, the watch weighs only 18.83 grams, thanks to its carbon monobloc back and titanium baseplate. Guardiola has always had a flair for fashion, even walking the catwalk in 1993 while playing for Barcelona FC.
