Rudiger, 31, who previously won the Champions League with Chelsea in 2021, played an integral part at the heart of the Los Blancos defence.

And he was all smiles after the game as he was snapped with the Champions League trophy.

But eagle-eyed observers were quick to notice the limited edition watch on his wrist.

According to Insaneluxurylife, it is a Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1A-018.

Produced in collaboration with Tiffany & Co., only 170 of the watches were made and sold for an initial retail price of £45,000.

However, due to so few being available, the market price has shot up to an eye-watering £1.4m.

That is a staggering figure, particularly when you consider the Champions League trophy Rudiger was holding in the photos only has a value of around £43,000.

NBA legend LeBron James was pictured wearing the same watch at last year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans.
