Why is Cristiano Ronaldo’s new watch so special?
The first thing you’d notice about the watch is its bright shade of emerald green. There is actually a reason for this choice of colour – the watch is supposed to have a Saudi Arabian theme. With Cristiano Ronaldo getting signed by the Saudi club Al Nassr, the Portuguese athlete will be moving to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to play for the club. So, Jacob & Co. decided to manufacture this special watch for him.
