Brazilian professional footballer Neymar is known for sporting expensive jewelry and fancying casino resorts around the world. His latest timepiece combines both of those enjoyments.

Neymar is one of the world’s richest sports superstars. The Al Hilal Saudi Football Club is paying the 32-year-old €150 million (US$163 million) a year and paid a €90 million transfer fee to his former club, Paris Saint-Germain, of France’s Ligue 1 division.

Regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, Neymar is renowned for his flamboyant style. That grandeur extends to his off-pitch lifestyle.

During last weekend’s boxing match in Saudi Arabi between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk in which the underdog Usyk upset Fury, Neymar showed off his latest jewelry purchase — a timepiece from Jacob & Co. that features a spinning roulette wheel and a rolling pill.

$280K Watch 

While posing for photos, Neymar was enthused to show off his Jacob & Co. watch. Jacob & Co. is a New York City-based luxury watchmaker.

The roulette watch Neymar wore retails for $280,000. Only 101 were made with 18K rose gold trim and “curved anti-reflective sapphire crystals on the face.”

Neymar joins a laundry list of celebrities and sports stars who are Jacob & Co. customers, including David and Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Jordan, Derek Jeter, Mariah Carey, 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Sofia Vergara, and Sean “Puffy” Combs. Drake, another celebrity who enjoys the casino, is additionally a Jacob & Co. client.

Neymar has a history of spending lavishly on the things he enjoys, including casinos.

A year ago this month, Neymar skipped Paris Saint-Germain’s title match, citing an injury, for the F1 Monaco Grand Prix. While at the race, Neymar ventured into the historic Monte Carlo Casino to compete in a poker tournament. He later posted a video to his Instagram account showing him playing online roulette.

Two months before visiting Monaco, Neymar streamed his online casino play where he lost more than €1 million. While that would devastate most people, Neymar was seen laughing as his losses piled up to more than seven digits.

Along with roulette, Neymar’s casino game of choice is poker. But unlike his skill on the pitch, Neymar’s game on the felt is a losing financial endeavor.

After ponying up tens of thousands of dollars to enter numerous live poker tournaments, online poker player tracking database The Hendon Mob shows Neymar has just $32,131 in live poker earnings.

Neymar’s best finish came in 2018 at the R$7,000 (US$1,362) No Limit Hold’em – High Rollers Event during the Brazilian Series of Poker in Sao Paulo. Neymar finished 6th among 288 entries to win $21,072.

Neymar Speculation

Though the odds are presumably long that Inter Miami has the financial capabilities to bring Neymar to South Florida, the global superstar in late March was spotted hanging in Miami with the Beckhams. David Beckham is a co-owner of the Major League Soccer club.

Beckham was instrumental in bringing Lionel Messi to Miami last year. Messi, however, is in the later stages of his career.

It’s widely thought that Neymar could join Miami in the coming years, but his exorbitant transfer fee from Al Hilal will presumably keep him in Saudi Arabia until his two-year, €300 million contract expires in 2025.
