LeBron James fires up Ohio State Buckeyes fans plus launches Royal Oak Audemars Piguet [video]


Busy weekend for Lebron James before the quest for his third straight NBA title begins on Monday. King James got Ohio State football fans fired up on Saturday, LeBron showed up at St. John Arena two hours before kickoff to attend the pep rally named “the Skull Session.” LeBron told Buckeyes fans that if he had been a one a done in college, that’s where he would’ve attended.


The two-time NBA champion also showed off his exclusive time piece with Audemars Piguet on Instagram.

Called the “Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Limited Edition LeBron James” the piece has been uniquely styled for the man himself, but is based on the standard unlimited version of current Royal Oak Offhsore timepiece. For watch lovers, the most interesting aspect of the watch is how it uniquely combines gold and gray. This color combination is rare, but clearly flattering. To accomplish this the case of the Royal Oak Offshore LeBron James is produced from 18k pink gold and titanium matched to a gray crocodile strap. Black ceramic is used for the crown and chronograph pushers.

The partnership was initially announced in 2011. There are only 600 watches available. If you have an extra $51,500 laying around, you too can be King James certified.
