If you’ve at any point lived in Philadelphia, you know that when it comes to sports, it’s a football town. Without a doubt, the Phillies, the Flyers, and the Sixers have all had their championship minutes – and some of them decently as of late – yet until the previous evening, the Eagles didn’t have a solitary Super Bowl championship in their possession. In the event that you were one of the large numbers of individuals tuning in for the game the previous evening, at that point you may have seen the group’s owner, Jeffrey Lurie, wearing A. Lange & Söhne 1815 on his wrist as he and his group took to the field after the game in Minneapolis to commend their absolute first championship victory.
It’s difficult to tell precisely what model Lurie was wearing, however we can tell that his Lange 1815 is a white metal execution of the watch. Furthermore, since we’re discussing Lange here, we know that it’s certainly not made of treated steel. It’s indistinct whether the watch he was wearing was white gold or platinum variant, and whether it’s the 38.5mm rendition or the bigger 40mm adaptation. The photograph here shows the 38.5mm adaptation of the 1815 in white gold, and it’s a carbon copy for what we see on Lurie’s wrist in the image above.
While shaking an amazing Lange isn’t how all Philadelphians chose to commend the previous evening , it’s very the most ideal choice we’ve seen.
We’d likewise prefer to offer our appreciation to Deployant, who originally recognized this magnificent wristwear choice prior today.
Update: It looks like the Lange on Lurie’s wrist was not by any means the only watch he brought to the Super Bowl. As this post-game interview with ESPN shows, the Eagles owner was likewise possessing a vintage gold Vacheron Constantin once owned by his dad. In the enthusiastic video, Lurie says that he was scouring his father’s watch during the whole final quarter of the game.
