It is meant to be comfortable with a pop of color. The watch Michael Phelps is wearing in this picture is blue and orange which almost looks like a swimming pool with dividing lanes.


2. Serena Williams

Serena wears many different watches from this collection. Serena has been seen wearing the Offshore Chronograph Watch while playing Tennis. But when she has more formal events, she opts for dressier pieces from the brand, like the rose gold Millenary Watch. Also, during the Met Gala in 2017, it was hard not to notice the Diamond Outrage watch from the Haute Joaillerie collection.All of these watches contemplate her sophisticated and sporty style!


3. Usain Bolt
