Patrick Mahomes walked away from the Super Bowl with more than just the trophy. The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback joined his teammates for their victory parade in Kansas City, Missouri with more than just bragging rights. Mahomes was spotted wearing a special Rolex Yacht-Master 40 that retails for $47,150. He showed up in a red plaid jacket and large goggles for most of the celebration.

The watch is a true dive watch that takes luxury to another level. The watch’s dial is set with diamonds. But it’s also functional. The Yacht-Master is water-resistant up to 100 meters and equipped with 70 hours of power reserve. Its Chromalight display has a long-lasting blue luminescence to help maintain visibility at night or in less-than-desirable conditions.

The Yacht-Master was introduced in 1992 and was the first new model the Swiss watchmaker had launched in 25 years. The watch’s design took elements of the iconic Daytonas and Submariners that preceded it to produce something which felt fresh but within Rolex’s known aesthetic. It’s aged well due to its minimalist design. The sophisticated yet sporty vibe fit Mahomes perfectly given his athletic abilities. The Kansas City Chiefs made a strong comeback in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl LIV game. The team scored an incredible 21 points during the last 15 minutes of play to beat the San Francisco 49ers 31 to 20.

Patrick Mahomes II is an American football quarterback. The son of former Major League Baseball pitcher Pat Mahomes, he plays for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League. Mahomes got his start playing both college football and college baseball during his time at Texas Tech University. While he didn’t go on to follow in his father’s baseball footsteps, he certainly inherited his athletic skills and is honing them today in the world of professional football.
