Aaron Rodgers and Zenith team up for a very green chronomaster watch

This watch is decked out in NY Jets colors, but it works for the Green Bay Packers, too

Zenith Aaron Rodgers Chronomaster

In the world of watches for men, the collaboration between a sports icon and a prestigious watchmaker is always a sight to behold. Enter Aaron Rodgers, the legendary quarterback, and Zenith watches, the Swiss watchmaking maestro. Together, they’ve created a timepiece that’s as remarkable as it is unique. If you thought football and horology had nothing in common, think again. The result is the Zenith Chronomaster Sport Aaron Rodgers Edition, a watch that’s turning heads for all the right reasons.

Before diving into the intricacies of the Chronomaster Sport Aaron Rodgers Edition, let’s talk about the man behind the watch — Aaron Rodgers. As a four-time NFL MVP and future Hall of Famer, he’s known for his precision and excellence on the field whether he’s playing for the Green Bay Packers or the NY Jets. Off the field, he’s a man with impeccable taste, and that’s where Zenith comes in.

Zenith watches, on the other hand, need no introduction. With a history that dates back to 1865, Zenith has established itself as a leading name in the world of Swiss watches. The brand’s dedication to artistry, accuracy, and creativity makes it a natural partner for someone like Aaron Rodgers, who embodies these very qualities.

Now, let’s get into the details of this remarkable timepiece. The Chronomaster Sport Aaron Rodgers Edition features a vibrant green-toned lacquered dial with three shades of gray counters, creating a visually striking and unique appearance. The luminous applied Arabic hour markers and SuperLuminova give the watch excellent visibility even in low-light conditions.

But what really sets this watch apart is its movement. Powered by the El Primero 3600 caliber, this watch is a marvel of efficiency. It offers central hours and minutes, a small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock, and a 1/10th of a second chronograph. The central chronograph hand completes a full turn in just 10 seconds, which is a testament to its high-frequency movement at 5Hz. It also features a 60-minute counter at 6 o’clock and a 60-second counter at 3 o’clock.

With a power reserve of approximately 60 hours, you can trust that this watch will keep ticking, just like Aaron Rodgers himself. The watch boasts automatic winding, ensuring it’s always ready when you are. And for those who appreciate the inner workings of a watch, the transparent sapphire crystal case back allows you to admire the intricate movement.

With a diameter of 41 mm and a thickness of 13.8 mm, it strikes the perfect balance between boldness and wearability. The stainless steel case material ensures durability and longevity, and with a water resistance of 100 meters, this watch is more than just a showpiece; it’s meant to be worn in various settings. The metal bracelet adds a touch of luxury and comfort to the timepiece, making it suitable for any occasion, even a football game.

In an interview with GQ, the football star gave a behind-the-scenes glance into the process of creating the watch, saying, “When it comes to watches, every single model they would put in front of me, then we’re talking about the bezel, we’re talking about the color, we’re talking about the band, we’re talking about the outside, dial, inside.” He continued, “There’s so many different options, and every single one of them was hard to actually choose, because I really liked multiple options. That was a cool thing.”

Pricing and availability

This watch is not just any timepiece; it’s a limited-edition watch, giving it that ultra-exclusive vibe. Only 250 pieces of the Zenith Chronomaster Sport Aaron Rodgers Edition are available worldwide.

The Zenith watch is priced at $12,800. While it may not be within everyone’s reach, it’s a watch that stands as a symbol of achievement and excellence. It became available on November 2, 2023, at Zenith’s physical and online boutiques worldwide

The verdict

This watch could have garnered a broader audience if it weren’t for the Arabic numerals, which impart a unique football field vibe to the overall aesthetic. However, considering the designer is none other than one of the NFL’s all-time greatest quarterbacks, the presence of these elements isn’t particularly unexpected.

As for the color, well, we’ll leave it to Green Bay Packers and New York Jets fans to debate who Rodgers is really representing here.

A new record in the world of watches? This is (probably) the lightest watch ever made
It will definitely feel great on your wrist
Ming watch on a wrist

When it comes to watches, the world of horology is an intricate dance of precision, craftsmanship, and innovation. From the intricate gears and springs that power these timekeeping wonders to the exquisite designs that adorn our wrists, the watchmaking world has always managed to push the boundaries of what's possible. But what happens when a maverick disrupts the scene with something so unique, so audacious, that it challenges the very essence of watchmaking itself? Enter Ming watches, and its incredible offering: the Ming LW-01. Get ready, because this isn't just another watch — this is (probably) the lightest watch ever made.

Step into the world of Ming, a brand that emerged in 2017 under the guidance of Ming Thien, a remarkable individual who transitioned from being a child physics prodigy to a professional photographer. Alongside a circle of kindred spirits, Ming embarked on a journey to establish a brand that stood in stark contrast to the snobbish exclusivity and sky-high price tags prevalent in the upper echelons of the watch-collecting realm. Ming's vision was clear: He aimed to craft timepieces that combined intrigue with affordability. Though the price tag of this watch is around $22,000, so affordability is certainly relative.
The weighty question: Why does it matter?
Let's kick things off with some facts. The Ming LW-01 is, quite simply, a marvel of engineering. It's not just a watch; it's a feat of horological acrobatics. Now, I know you're thinking, "What's the big deal about weight? I can handle a few extra grams on my wrist." Well, that's where you're wrong, my friend. The weight of a watch can make all the difference in the world. Ever had your wrist fatigue after a long day of wear? The Ming LW-01 takes that problem and flicks it off like an annoying mosquito.
