Part of LeBron James' gearing up for his title defense this offseason involved literal gears, as he partnered with luxury Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet to create a limited-edition timepiece that will retail for $51,500.

CNBC provides the specifics:

The watch, called the Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph, comes with an 18-karat pink gold case, black ceramic and diamond set push pieces, and a hand-stitched gray crocodile strap. Six-hundred of these watches went on sale at the end of September.

"Anytime I do anything or have a partnership with anyone that has my name on it, I like to have a lot of personal trace in it," said James, whose signature is printed in blue on the sapphire crystal in the back of the watch.

To repeat: hand-stitched gray crocodile strap.

Other professional athletes who have partnered with Audemars Piguet include Michael Schumacher (price range: $42,500-$110,000) and Leo Messi (on sale for just $48,858). If you have that kind of scratch, there are certainly worse ways to spend it.
