Tick, tock: OBJ plans to keep wearing lavish watch in games

Odell Beckham Jr. says he plans to wear flashy watch again despite NFL rule violation Odell Beckham Jr. plans to keep wearing expensive watch during games, hints it's only a story because it's him

The watch didn't hinder Beckham's production in Week 1.

A company spokesperson said Beckham wasn't paid to wear the watch on the field and isn't a brand ambassador.

Beckham said his watch should be allowed because it's plastic and noted players wear knee braces.

Beckham vented on Twitter Monday evening: 'If it ain't one thing.it's another'.

"Yeah, that's just my life".

Many of Beckham Jr's apologists around the sport have pointed to tennis stars like Rafael Nadal and golf stars like Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson also wearing watches during their tournaments, but Chris and Rob quickly shoot that theory down considering they aren't contact sports. "If it wasn't the watch, it would've been the way that I tie my shoes". "The same way I wear it every day I go to practice, when I go here, I go there, been wearing it. Take a shower with it on. It's just on me".

Odell Beckham Jr. says he plans to wear flashy watch again despite NFL rule violation

The Browns receiver said he plans to keep wearing his Richard Mille watch - which is worth $189,000, not $350,000 - and added he was singled out because of "who he is", Cleveland.com reported.

"You've got to look into the rulebook". It's a nice watch, but you'd think he'd rather not wear it during a football game. The league reportedly said it would address the issue with the Browns.

Beckham added that the watch didn't violate National Football League guidelines on hard objects because it is made of plastic, noting that some players wear knee braces "made out of metal and you don't see them taping it up, no jewelry on, so I'm good".

US Open victor Rafael Nadal endorses the company and plays in his own $725,000 Richard Mille watch.

Beckham caught seven passes for 71 yards in his Cleveland debut, but the Browns were blown out 43-13.
