Pretty much every major football club offered a football watch in his fan shop (even if it is sometimes maybe only an egg timer … ). You must enjoy some of these models but at least with caution: with average prices from €40 must a football fan just be aware, that you pay only the logo and the team’s colors to a large extent and the quality of the watch must even suffer. Manufacturer of watches are usually unclear here.
In this article, I introduce some football watches of famous watch brands , including TAG Heuer, Jacques LeMans, Festina, Seiko, IWC, Ebel, Hublot and Maurice Lacroix. Prices range from less than €100 to down to several thousand euros for the “master”-models.
Something is likely to be here anyway, for almost every taste and budget : there are a number of football watches on the market, including official watches of the DFB, Champions League-and League club watches.Some real Price-performance tips are also…
Thomas Sabo and IWC: Current and former official football watches of the DFB
After the license partnership between the DFB and Thomas SABO with a collection of World Cup 2014 is initiated, the second collection on the occasion of the euro 2016 is now launched. In addition to the expensive over € 10,000 Limited Edition IWC Aquatimer “La Cumbre volcano”, which is supported by the German national team, so there is an Affordable official DFB watcheuro 2016 now…
Thomas Sabo has two football watches for men in the portfolio like Samsung Gear S listed on ELECTRONICSENCYCLOPEDIA.COM, what at first but something puzzled me because I Thomas Sabo have actually always exclusively linked to women-jewellery. Obviously, Thomas Sabo wants to penetrate but also in other fields…
Rebel race (€339) Thomas Sabo on the man would like to bring the 42 mm wide football Watch eternal (less than €200) and the 44 mm chronograph. Both models are (black and white) in the simple look of the DFB, but have nice details like the 4 World Cup star or the Federal Eagle on board.
Too bad: Both models have installed only mineral glass. For example various Swiss-made models by Tissot or the below presented price-performance tip show that, you can get also scratch-resistant sapphire glass for prices around 300-€400. At least with the chronograph race rebel Sapphire was so desirable.
After all: Thomas Sabo installed good Japanese quartz movements from Miyota (citizen group).
All-in-all must be aware of one as a purchaser of football watches Thomas SABO that you of course with pay the DFB licensing fees. Visually, the models fairly well liked, the value for money is suffering from something but of course by the DFB license. Who wants to round off his fan outfit reasonably affordable, is here, but not wrong.
Only used to get you past DFB limited editions by IWC . The model designations are as follows:
- European Championship 2008 in Austria and Switzerland: IWC double chronograph EditionDFB
- World Cup 2010 in South Africa: IWC engineer chronograph EditionDFB
- Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine: IWC big pilot’s watch Edition DFB
Exciting detail: Euro 2012 of the squad’s 23 players each received a watch with the engraved side limitation number, their respective number corresponds to (E.g. the number 01/250 for Manuel Neuer).
The undoubtedly excellent processed IWC Watches football but cost several thousand euros and are actually only through the beautifully processed Caseback as official DFB watches. The color scheme is similar to that held at Thomas Sabo discreetly in black and white with red accents.
LACO and pop pilot: Football watches in fan colours of the DFB-Elf
The famous for its historic Aviator watches German company LACO offers an also simple black and white pilot chronograph with the Bern model with a quartz movement. The case diameter is 42 mm and the model is spritzwassergschützt (5 bar) – you should go with the clock so I’d rather not go diving.
Despite “made in Germany” the price is only €348 directly at LACO-shop, what is fair, given of the typically really good quality by LACO watches. Is a pity however also here like in Thomas Sabo, that only mineral glass is fitted.
Visually the LACO Bern succeeded all around and a dignified memory of the German national team in 1954 World Cup winning (“the miracle of Bern” )).
The previously little-known watch brand has specialized in Pop-Pilot based in Hamburg pilot’s watches poppy design and during 2016 does not take the EM can, a 400-piece out to bring limited black red gold Special Edition.
This model in all cases is striking: the completely gold PVD and 42 mm case in combination with the red tape of NATO and the black dial leaves no doubt which team you with roots.
The clock is in the total price tip for euro 2016: For €180 directly from pop-pilot you get scratch-resistant Sapphire Crystal, a screw-down Crown and thus water resistance up to 10 bar (swimming, swimming, showers possible) as well as a Japanese Miyota quartz movement.
TAG Heuer: “CR7” and stronger football focus
Far away of motor racing TAG Heuer is also in numerous other sports and events very present, last increased in football: is not the attentive football fan TAG Heuer display in addition to the timing of the Federal League sky for example surely & co. escaped, which is based on a partnership between TAG Heuer with the DFL.
In this context, TAG Heuer of the Bundesliga season has released an official watch of Bundesliga 16/17. Give more info ‘ ts here:
In the framework of this cooperation, the referee now with TAG Heuer connected Smartwatches over the place run. Maybe can you Yes the might someday coming “video evidence” directly on the watch stream
A further treat offers TAG Heuer Connected for football fans: the official Bundesliga app, which by 2015/2016 still exclusively on the TAG Heuer Connected ran the season.
E.g. the presentation of live data of the Bundesliga is one of the functions of the Bundesliga app optimized for the TAG Heuer Connected: users have the opportunity to select their favorite teams, for which they want to receive information about the games. Important game events like doors or red cards appear on the dial.
The TAG Heuer Connected costs around €1400, what appears initially very much for an Android Smartwatch.With a very light and top-processed titanium casing, sapphire glass and threesome Betriebseschwindigkeit it but should be justified price. The best on the clock is certainly the design: In comparison to the Apple Watch, which looks at least as a “real” men watch TAG Heuer Connected.
The General drawback of a Smartwatch is that this is just technically obsolete after a few years. Of course that does not fit into the concept of a Swiss luxury watch manufacturers like TAG Heuer – in particular mechanical watches are virtually “forever” durable through maintenance and revisions.
TAG Heuer had but a brilliant idea: after the expiry of the warranty period (2 years), the customer has the possibility the Smartwatch against a mechanical TAG Heuer Carrera to redeem. He must pay “only” about € 1400. Considering the new prices for a TAG Heuer Carrera, not a too bad deal…
TAG Heuer has but yet another soccer watch in the portfolio: the 3000 pieces limited edition chronograph TAG Heuer Formula 1 ‘Cristiano Ronaldo Limited Edition’ (REF. CAZ1113. FC8189). Who a true “CR7” fan is, hardly gets around to this model: the grass green held model is the TAG Heuer Brand Ambassador and Super Peacock superstar Christiano Ronaldo dedicated to and has an MSRP of sporting €1400. The inclined fan gets that usual good DAY Heuer quality, packaged in a 42mm case with Sapphire Crystal and Swiss Ronda quartz movement (images: TAG Heuer).
Festina: Schalke 04-edition in the lower price segment
The Spanish brand of Festina presents itself like athletic in the Football League: Festina is partner of Schalke 04 since 2013 and accordingly various Schalke put out 04 models. Should be clear that such watches taste not every football fan…
Of course also the perimeter advertising at the stadium may not lacking within the framework of cooperation – neither the Schalke players, in the context of the election to the Festina player of the month the clocks keep image-rich and beaming into the camera. Whether the multi-million dollar League players wear the €99 entry-level model in their spare time? Many a player toying there probably with the €18,000 expensive FC Bayern München watch by Hublot…
Hublot: collector watches for well-heeled fans and official watch of euro 2016 and Champions League
The football environment in which TAG Heuer 2016 increasingly trying to position is occupied luxury watch brand Hublot Swiss about 10 years by the relatively young (founded in 1980). Hublot brand Ambassador include Pelé, Mourinho and David Trézégue.
Hublot watches are not only expensive, but also striking like a sore, which is expressed for example in the FC Bavaria Limited Edition for crisp €18,000 – 45-Minütiger half timers included!
Alternative: If there should be a FC Bayern luxury watch, has the wherewithal for the Hublot but not left or looking for something dezenteres, FC Bayern can take a look at the football watch Ebel: the model Ebel 1911 classic Hexagon “FC Bayern” is however only still off and on to get for about €2000. Clearly conspicuous: The also limited Ebel 1911 Tekton “FC Bayern”. Ebels cooperation with the FC Bayern were also partnerships with European top clubs such as AJAX, Arsenal London, Olympique Lyon and Real Madrid.
But back to Hublot: A very striking design has the Hublot of big bang Unico retrograde chronograph, which is the official watch of the European Championships in 2016 , as well as the UEFA Champions League .
Limited to 100 pieces euro 2016-variant of this model relies on optical highlights in the colors of the host country France:
Cheap alternative: The independent Austrian watch brand Jacques Lemans has Champions League football watches on sale. For less than €100 you get as the rather playful model “final Milan 2016”. If you prefer something more discreet, gets a very masculine chronograph with stylish, stand-alone design for just over € 200:

Maurice Lacroix and Seiko: FC Barcelona Football watches
If there are several FC Bavaria models of luxury watch manufacturers, also a model number for one of the best clubs in the world should not be missed: the FC Barcelona. The Swiss watch brand Maurice Lacroix offers two versions for fans of Spanish “magic football” with the Eliros and Pontos football watches models:
While the model of Eliros for around € 750 with Sapphire Crystal, is to get a 40 mm case and a quartz movement, one for the model of Pontos already quite deep in the Pocket needs access: just over € 3000 are due for the stainless version with 43 mm case diameter and Swiss ETA 7750 automatic movement.
The Barcalogo and the colours of the Club may not be missing at most of these football watches:
In addition, the partnership in the largest stadium in Europe is communicates through other elements and symbolized, for example by a 230-metre LED billboard at the edge of the playing field as well as an exclusive presence in all VIP zones of the Camp Nou.
