We are saying goodbye to cooler winter months and welcoming the warmer weather Spring is ushering in. Perhaps more exciting than the nicer weather is the sport that Spring will be bringing with it. It’s baseball season! With the World Baseball Classic recently wrapping up, Marlin’s Stadium will be opening its doors to thousands of fans from across the State. Whether you’re a Marlins’ or Rays’ fan, one thing is clear- aside from the world-class skills these players exhibit, we also admire the style of some of our favorite players. In honor of America’s game taking the field for opening day across the country this month, we take a look at some of our favorite fashionable players and some of the watches we think would match their lifestyle perfectly.
Giancarlo Stanton: Naturally, we have to feature our hometown boy first! The Marlins’ slugger is not only a prodigy on the field- we think his fashion sense propels him into superstar status as well. This multi-winning National League All-Star and 2016 homerun derby winner, is used to hitting them out of the park; and the way he rocks a suit is no different. His Instagram account is full of slick suits and fashion items that feature clean lines. His fashion sense is a nice mix of the traditional with a modern twist. Given his style and the fact he routinely sends the ball through the air- we think the perfect timepiece for Stanton is the IWC Top Gun Miramar. With a rugged silhouette and ceramic case, this watch features durable functionality with unmistakeable style. This is a great timepiece for the man who excels at what he does and looks good while doing it.
Bryce Harper: It is hard to look at the young blood in MLB and not look at Harper. The first overall draft pick in 2010 is only 24 years old and is hitting bombs and making a name for himself on the Nationals roster. Being touted as a “five-tool player”, Harper was the youngest position player to ever be named to the All-Star team. With so much experience and success under his belt already, we are excited to see what this young player can do with the rest of his career in the Majors. Exuding a style of casual confidence, Harper has been seen in anything from a beanie to a bold suit jacket. The perfect watch for a young star forging his path on the field and in fashion is undoubtedly the Franck Muller Long Island. Inspired by the Art Deco style, the Long Island is becoming the leading collection for Franck Muller. Its iconic rectangular shape and numbers makes it a standout in design which fits comfortably on the wrist of the gentleman who is very quickly making a name for himself.
Cole Hamels: The starting pitcher for the Texas Rangers is known throughout baseball as having one of the best changeups in the game. Hard to hit for lefties and next to impossible to hit for righties, Hamels also has a World Series MVP title to his name. Successful from high school to the pros, Hamels has routinely been at the top of his game. An attendee of charity fashion shows and featured in magazine spreads, Cole Hamels is also no stranger to the fashion world. With his record of accomplishments, Audemars Piguet Offshore Alinghi is the perfect fit for Hamels. This limited edition timepiece was made for the 2007 America’s Cup defender. Unique and limited to only 1300 worldwide, this watch is also notable for being the world’s first forged carbon case. We think this limited edition watch is the perfect fit for the man who is also in a class all his own.
