Cristiano Ronaldo was awarded a unique £630,000 watch in recognition of his money-spinning move to Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr.

The Portuguese forward completed a £175million-a-year deal to move to the Middle East in January, two months after his Manchester United contract was terminated after a bizarre, bombshell interview blasting the club with Piers Morgan.

And veteran Ronaldo, 37, was gifted a hugely valuable one-of-a-kind Jacob and Co timepiece to celebrate his move.

The Saudi-themed watch, in dark green to represent the country’s flag and its main religion Islam, has 338 extremely rare gemstones embedded in it and is 18 carat white gold, with a size of 47mm by 15.85mm and an alligator-green leather strap.

The former Red Devils, Real Madrid and Juventus superstar showed off the watch, which is a ‘Caviar Flying Tourbillon Tsavorite’ made up of 216 different components, 27 jewels and with a 42-hour power reserve, in a flashy Instagram post.

Rather than emeralds, a traditional green precious stone, the watch contains tsavorite, believed to be the most expensive and valuable garnet, which is more sparkly than emeralds and 200 times rarer.

Sportsmail reported earlier this week that Ronaldo has an incredible £5m watch collection, from a £1.6m diamond-encrusted Franck Muller to a £400,000 Rolex GMT-Master II.
