Vardy shows off £50,000 watch and wash bag
Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has come a long way from when he played for Halifax and Fleetwood in the National League.
These days he has a Premier League winner’s medal and can say he’s played in the Champions League.
His bank balance has also inflated over the last few years and that has allowed him to indulge in a some of life’s luxuries.
On Friday he showed off his £53,225 watch as he arrived at Leicester’s team hotel in Birmingham ahead of their league match against West Brom.
The watch, manufactured by Richard Mille, is made of titanium. It ‘has been constructed according to an extremely rigorous specification, in the manner of the analytical engineering methods used in the design of Formula 1 racing cars’.
The former Stocksbridge Park Steels forward was also snapped holding a personalised wash bag with pictures of his wife Rebekah and daughter Sofia. He was also wearing a £1,000 Louis Vuitton backpack.
Vardy stopped briefly to sign autographs before entering the team hotel to prepare for Saturday’s Premier League clash against the Baggies.
He has scored twice in his last five games for Leicester, with his last goal coming in the 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.
He will be aiming to add to his tally at The Hawthorns as the Foxes go in search of their first win in four games
