Odell Beckham Jr. Plans To Keep Wearing $190k Watch In Games

"If anybody else would've worn the watch, if it was a $20 watch, it wouldn't been no problem", he said.

Beckham was asked if he'll still wear it during the game.

Beckham said Tuesday that he intends to keep wearing the expensive watch he had on during Sunday's season opener against the Tennessee Titans.

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". Beckham contends that his watch "shouldn't be an issue". "The watch is plastic", Beckham said.

Beckham later tweeted about the ordeal Monday, saying "If ain't one thing.it's another".

Well, it wasn't just a regular watch - it was a Richard Mille watch that is now being priced north of $350,000. Beckham believes he's just being given a hard time.

The league spoke to the Browns, but to this point Beckham said he has not been contacted.

The Post is reporting that only 500 were made of that particular model.

"You got to look into the rule book". While Beckham wasn't fined for wearing the watch, the league informed the team that it has a policy barring players from bringing "hard objects" onto the field. The watch is plastic. "But people have knee braces on that are hard and made out of metal and you don't see them taping it up, no jewelry on, so I'm good". A company representative emailed the Washington Post saying Beckham purchased the orange RM 11-03 Automatic Flyback Chronograph McLaren for $189,500 (U.S.) at a Richard Mille boutique.

Beckham is now in his first season with the Browns after being traded from the New York Giants over the off-season.
