    Wink Eto'o gift to team mates.

    "Samuel Eto'o rewards winning Cameroon squad with £29,000 watches

    • Internazionale striker marks World Cup qualification with gifts
    • Watches come 'with dedication from me inscribed on the back'


    The Internazionale [Inter Milan] striker Samuel Eto'o has celebrated Cameroon's qualification for next summer's World Cup in South Africa by buying every member of the squad a £29,000 watch.

    Cameroon beat Morocco 2-0 to secure their place in what will be their sixth World Cup finals, aided by nine goals from Eto'o in qualifying.

    Speaking before the decisive win, Eto'o told the French television show Telefoot: "You remember that watch I gave to Usain Bolt in the summer? If we qualify I will give one to each of my team-mates, with a dedication from me inscribed on the back."

    Eto'o has a proud track record of making use of his lucrative income to incentivise his team-mates. Four years ago he paid them a total of £35,000 – nearly £1,200 each - after they had defeated the Ivory Coast 3-2.

    The watches are understood to be made of solid gold and diamonds, and come from the luxury collection he inspired."

    Could pull a pic but the watch looks very clunky and OTT.

    Sorry: Could - Not - pull a pic etcetera. Appreciate it if someone could do so.

    Sounds like it may be a case of Invicta style pricing. I doubt he actually shelled out that much money.

    Damn ugly to boot. If you ask me, he's giving them 20,000 pounds in diamonds and gold, which happens to contain a watch. It's probably a chinese tourbillon in there.

    Id say its very likely. Either that, or he's got the cheapest swiss/german tourbillon on the market.

    wow. I managed to take a screen shot of the right one! There were like 12 of them with different color gold and dials and stuff, all equally terrible.

    I hate to say it but....

    Styling wise I think it has definite potential and thats coming from a bloke who usually hates gold and/or diamond in a mens watch

    BUT as mentioned I cant see this being a great quality movement hidden under the probably 28 thousand quids worth of diamond

    Thats insane. Not sure of the watch / movement. But regardless, diamonds and gold carry their own prices and weight in their own right. For a footballer who makes millions, a purchase like this seems to be a drop in the bucket. Inter paid Barca $29 million for Eto'o.

    that's nothing....this is what I got for hitting the game winning single...tie game, runners at the corners, 1 out, bottom of 9th at my company's summer picnic softball game...sales(my team) vs. production. The annual summer company picnic softball game is a big deal! I was expecting a gold Rolex sub, but the economy.......
