Firstly a big congratulations to Leicester City for winning the Premier League. They started the season with odds of 5000/1 to win the title and against all expectations they have done it! In honour of this fantastic achievement we are doing a special Spot the Watch on their manager Claudio Ranieri.
We have seen Mr Ranieri wearing watches before but haven’t taken a closer look until now. It seems he quite likes Rolex. The first model spotted on his wrist is a vintage Ref Replica Rolex 1655 Explorer II Series Watches. The watch was originally designed for spelunkers, who needed to know whether it was say 4pm or 4am, when they were exploring deep caves with no natural light. Italian collectors nicknamed this watch the “Freccione” for the orange arrowed 24 hr hand. This works out quite well since Mr Ranieri is Italian. Maybe it can be given the nickname of the “Ranieri” in view of his fantastic accomplishment!
The next watch spotted is from Jaeger LeCoultre. It is the Memovox Tribute to Rolex Deep Sea Series Fake Watches. This was produced in tribute to the original produced in 1959. It was produced in two versions, the European and American versions. Claudio Ranieri is wearing the European version which features a cleaner dial to the American version. It would be interesting to know if he has ever used the alarm during a match.
The final two Rolex Cheap Copy Watches spotted are both from Rolex and they are both Daytonas. Whether it is a vintage or a modern piece the Dayton exudes the cool factor. The chronograph would be useful for timing the two forty five minute halves.
