Super Bowl Super-Watch Halftime Show: Rolex Vs. Hublot Vs. Jaeger-LeCoultre

BUY THEM HERE: In honor of Super Bowl LI, Tim Mosso of pits three of the biggest, toughest, and most athletic sports watches on the pre-owned gridiron against each other in a three-way championship match. The 44mm stainless steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual Deepsea Sea-Dweller 116660 D-Blue (James Cameron) takes the field for our establishment team - the dynasty - the New England Patriots. Like Tom Brady, the new-for-2008 Rolex Deepsea is an aging star... but still a franchise player! In "D-Blue" uniform, this special edition of the Rolex Deepsea pays tribute to James Cameron's exits the locker room suited up for a special championship bout. And with the Rolex's Original Gas Escape Valve, the New England Patriot's Deepsea is always ready to deflate... er... release excess accumulated helium. And with a reference 98210 steel bracelet that features no animal products, even Michael Vick has endorsed it on the advice of counsel. On the other side of the coin toss, representing the upstart Atlanta Falcons, it's the Hublot Oceanographique 4000M diver. With an Hublot King Power 48mm case size, a 60mm span between lug, a 23mm thick case, and an internal rotating dive bezel, this Hublot is the defensive lineman of our pro-bowl trio. Sublet's ingenious lug-mounted strap quick-release triggers allow rapid swaps of gear when the clock allows only quick trip to the locker room. A tank-tough automatic caliber keeps the count running under pressure, and like 6'4" Falcons Quarterback Matt Ryan, the Hublot 4000M cuts an imposing stance on the field or off. And since cheerleaders, super bowl commercials, and the halftime show always win the night regardless of the game outcome, the Jaeger-LeCoultre's Master Compressor Extreme Lab 2 joins this match on their behalf. This Jaeger-LeCoultre is like the number one overall draft pick quarterback out of Texas who also scored 100% on his NFL Wonderlic test... and has a sniper rifle arm... and has the footwork to run the ball... and has an offer to pitch for the Yankees. But unlike that kid, you won't see the Extreme Lab 2 so often that you're sick of it by the time mini camps arrive. With a digital chronograph minutes display, a GMT second time zone display, a primary column wheel for the chronograph AND a second one for the multifunction crown selector... get the picture? The JLC Master Compressor Extreme Lab 2 also features its own quick-release strap system that allows its owner to spike the leather ASAP when necessary. And with a unique hacking lever on its case flank, the Extreme Lab 2 owner can "stop the clock" according to his own playbook. As Super Bowl LI approaches, only you can decide the outcome of this of this (Swiss) "Football Americain" (S)lug-fest! Video and content by Tim Mosso and Pheline Jerome.
