UFC news: Conor McGregor's watch collection is simply stunning

UFC 194: Aldo vs. McGregor

As one of the biggest earners in all of the sporting world, Conor McGregor makes the sort of money that most of us can only dream of.

The UFC superstar is certainly not shy when it comes to spending his wealth either - as evidenced by his impressive watch collection.

The 31-year-old Irishman revealed the latest edition to his haul of timepieces in an Instagram post on Friday.

McGregor showed off his new Patek Philippe Special Series 5905P-014 on the social media platform. Branded "The Hulk" by McGregor, the emerald-faced watch boasts a crocodile strap and platinum casing. The Swiss-made piece also comes in its own luxury oakwood box.

Limited to a run of just 25, the watch is estimated to have set McGregor back a cool £80,000!

That figure, though, is a drop in the ocean compared to the overall cost of his collection.

A feature on thesun.co.uk has chronicled McGregor's personal inventory of watches, and it's safe to say it'll leave you stunned.

The most expensive piece in McGregor's collection may also be the one that is most familiar to his fans. Worn during the post-fight press conference following his 13-second demolition of Jose Aldo at UFC 194, his Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph is encrusted with diamonds and reportedly cost £105,000.

In fact, McGregor is such a fan of this particular watch that he apparently owns multiple versions.

Not every piece that the former two-weight world champion wears on his wrist is quite that pricey though.

Coming in at a modest £28,000, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master II was worn by McGregor during the Toronto leg of the press tour to promote his August 2017 boxing clash with Floyd Mayweather.

Part of the reason that these luxury watches are so pricey is the sheer number of hours involved in crafting them. McGregor's £66,000 Patek Philippe Calatrava Skeleton, for example, takes over 130 hours to make.

McGregor, though, is far from unique in his passion for fine timepieces. His stylish Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller can also be seen in the collections of fellow sports icons LeBron James and Cristiano Ronaldo. If you fancy joining the trio in owning one, however, it will cost you at a minimum of £25,000!

Of all of his collection, McGregor's favourite watch is said to be his rose gold version of the Sky-Dweller. It may come in at £33,000, but compared to some of the pieces he owns, it is almost cheap.

Over the years, McGregor has developed a reputation as a poor timekeeper, frequently arriving late to press conferences and public workouts. Given the array of watches he has at his disposal, this really should not be an issue!
