Conor McGregor has one of the most lavish 1:1 luxury replica watches collections on the planet, but unlike many AAA fake watches collectors, he’s fairly cavalier about when and where he wears them.
From aggressive workouts while wearing his fragile $1 million Jacob & Co. dress Swiss replica watches to jetskiing with his diamond-encrusted Rolex, the outspoken Irish MMA champ really doesn’t give a f*ck about the manufacturer’s recommendations when it comes to appropriate timepiece usage. But his latest act of horological hubris might have finally made the penny drop.
Invited to throw the ceremonial first pitch at a baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and Minnesota Twins, ‘The Notorious’ stepped up to the mound wearing a hefty rose gold best UK replica Patek Philippe Nautilus Chronograph watches, which he’s apparently broken due to the intensity of his curveball.
The photo of the pitch, which you can see above, is almost cartoonish: the high quality fake watches was so loose on McGregor’s wrist that it ricocheted out like a rubber band as he goes to throw. The pitch completely missed, too, leading many online to ridicule McGregor, comparing his terrible attempt to rapper 50 Cent’s legendarily bad first pitch back in 2014.
It underlines an important point that many perfect replica watches buyers don’t fully appreciate: you should never play sports like baseball while wearing mechanical top copy watches, as it’s a sure-fire way to break it.
Mechanical Swiss made replica watches might be able to withstand intense air or water pressure fluctuations and still keep reliable time, but exposing them to a quick, intense spike in G-forces like those your wrist endures during a baseball pitch is more than enough to cook one. (Conor is left-handed and was wearing his Patek Philippe fake watches for sale on his left hand, which is probably why he damaged it.) Other sports that are likely to damage online super clone watches store for similar reasons include boxing, darts, tennis or surfing.
It’s also true for golf swings, which is why it was such a big deal when Richard Mille came out with the RM 055 Manual Winding Bubba Watson signature model for the namesake American pro golfer – mechanical replica watches wholesale shop that could withstand the shock of a PGA Tour-winning swing.
As for the commentary online about the pitch – especially the comparison with 50 Cent’s – it clearly got up McGregor’s nose, as he went on a legendary rant on Instagram about the whole thing.
“The audacity to compare mine with this piss! Picture to picture alone buries this. Mine, bar the accuracy, was the most powerful and fastest first pitch of any of these other athletes/artists over the years. No comparison. Smoke them up and down that Forbes I do. Get Messi over. Smoked. Cris. Smoked. Federer. Doubled. All-time most power! Put me in the Wrigley Hall of Fame for that rocket launch…”
“50 has a nice Hublot, too. [A] Big Bang. Small bucks, 50 Cent. One has power. One is the director of media relations for some show called Power. You know what it is.”
Jeez, there’s a lot to unpack there.
Braggadocio aside, if he actually bought the replica watches for men for ‘only’ $80k, that means it’s actually been a rather good investment. While $500k is a bit of an exaggeration, the best quality fake watches has indeed significantly appreciated, with most examples going for around US$300k (we’re assuming he’s talking US dollars).
Not sure how much you’d get for a damaged one, though…
