LOOK: Tyler Herro is wearing a $60,000 watch at the NBA Draft

Former Kentucky guard Tyler Herro is set to officially become a professional basketball player tonight, and he’s certainly looking the part this evening at the NBA Draft.

The 6-foot-6 shooting guard has already shown off the floral suit and gold chain he picked out for tonight:

Taking an even closer look at his attire, you can see a pretty shiny watch on his left wrist. And according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, that time-keeper is reportedly worth over $60,000.

On Twitter this evening, Rovell says that Herro’s Datejust watch retails at $12,700 and there are over $50,000 worth of diamonds added on as after-market modifications.

When asked why the watch was set to 23 and if it had anything to do with Michael Jordan or LeBron James, Herro told Rovell that it was already set that way when he got it and he was afraid to mess with it.

“No [it had nothing to do with Jordan or James],” he said. “It was like that and I didn’t want to touch it.”

Now before the BBN freaks out about Herro’s spending habits or saving money, the watch was likely a rental or loaned to him by the jeweler for exposure on the big stage.

Nonetheless, that’s a pretty expensive piece of jewelry for a 19-year-old.

      They sure do lol. But I have to say, that’s a ballin’ ass watch. If only he had a good suit to match it. Ha

      PJs suit is pretty cool. What’s up with everyone wearing big necklaces on the outside of their shirts though? I guess the necklace is replacing the neck tie. Hideous

      Exactly. PJ looks like a mature young man and very nice and fashionable. So happy for him. The other two. . . look ridiculous and embarrassing.

    I’m glad for the kid. Rock that ice! Not my taste but I ain’t mad at him. If I dropped $60k on a watch it’d be from jlc, or A. Lange & Söhne. Rolex is a decent watch but probably not the finest watches in the world as their amazing marketing team has convinced the world that they are. I guess it’s subjective though.

    60,000 for a watch and the date isn’t even right on it.

    Three of the worst suits ever on that stage. Only Joakim Noah’s was worse for me.

    Not a particularly good look.
