Durant has only played 18 games so far this season, averaging 29.0 points, 7.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists, shooting 52.4% from the field and 43.4% from three, a very high effectiveness.

Watch James Harden's BEST MOMENTS From His Time With The Brooklyn Nets So Far!
After talking so much about Harden’s performance on the court, then let’s return to the most important theme of watches, to list James Harden’s watch collections that we saw in public. We all often know that the United States NBA basketball star’s choice of watches is nothing more than Rolex, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, RICHARD MILLE, so let’s look at Harden’s choice of watches, whether it will the following is a look at Harden’s watch selection, whether it will be different or some rare and special models.
Rolex Day-Date II
After be the cover of GQ magazine, Harden also accepted an interview to show his most commonly worn watch jewelry, in the interview Harden spoke of his first watch, the Rolex showed up on the magazine on his wrist. The Rolex, 2008 series Day-Date II with white Rome, is quite meaningful to him as his luxury watch bought for himself by earned money, Harden also said “I still remember how excited I was to buy this watch, and I wore this classic model for a year.” The 41mm 18k gold case and watch bracelet, combined with the triangular pitted dogtooth ring, and the day and date display are really charming, and what I like most about the watch is the white dial with the gold Roman numerals, which brings balance back from the striking gold material and adds elegance to the watch. The watch is powered by a self-winding caliber 3156, a Rolex-developed Paraflex shock absorber upgraded from the original, which provides a 48-hour power reserve when fully wound. With the launch of the new generation of Rolex Day-Date at Baselworld in 2015, the diameter of the watch became 40mm and the movement was upgraded to 3255. The new series follows the White Rome timepiece, but I personally think the new White Rome is better looking than the old White Rome because of the change in the four and five o’clock positions to bar-shaped hour markers.

RICHARD MILLE RM055
This RICHARD MILLE RM055 is also one of Harden’s most frequently worn watches, RM055 is RICHARD MILLE specifically collection for the golfer Bubba ㆍWatson Bubba Watson, with a unique design interpretation of golf aesthetics. This series of watches is inspired by the RM038 Bubba Watson Tourbillon, which was launched in 2011, and has quickly become one of RICHARD MILLE’s most popular series. Harden’s RM055 is different from a common white ceramic RM055 model, from the picture we can see it’s a boutique gunmetal gray special limited-edition watch released in 15 years, the watch is limited to 100 pieces, extremely rare.
This watch is particularly stunning in kind and is my personal favorite RM055 model. The simple gray color makes RICHARD MILLE create a very clean and advanced, and the visual effect of this gray color combined with the tonneau-shaped case is also quite outstanding and eye-catching, and the actual picture above I can highlight the texture of the watch even if I take the same color pewter gray as the base. The tonneau-shaped case is made of microblasted titanium carbide TiC, which has a hardness of 1450 on the Vickers scale. The hardness of titanium carbide is tested in extreme environments to ensure excellent durability, and it is made by blasting glass beads onto the grade 5 titanium case at low pressure to ensure a neat and even finish, creating the gunmetal gray effect. The effect. This material and process was frequently used by RICHARD MILLE, first appearing on the RM 053 Pablo Dono’s piece of polo, while the 055’s titanium carbide and other materials like ceramic were also designed to meet the needs of Baba Watson to wear and play golf.
Under the skeletonized dial, we can see the highly skeletonized RMUL2 hand-wound mechanical movement. RMUL2 is made of top grade titanium with PVD coating and Titalyt® treated substrates and bridges to ensure optimal strength and rigidity of the overall architecture, so that RMUL2 can withstand gravitational acceleration of over 5,000g. The perfect flatness of the surfaces and the perfect functioning of the gear train are also extremely well layered, and the movement is equipped with a variable inertia non-calculating balance wheel and a double barrel that provides a power reserve of 55 hours when fully wound. The watch comes with an extra gray strap, and we see that Harden has opted for an icy blue rubber strap to add a touch of style to it, which is a particularly popular color for RM, along with orange and pink. The watch was announced in 2015 at a price of 112,000 euros.
RICHARD MILLE RM11-03
Besides the gray RM055, Harden also often wears two RM11-03 models, the RM 11-03 Jean Tod and the RM 11-03 McLaren self-winding flyback chronograph. RM 11-03 McLaren that was announced for sale in 2018, following the RM 50-03, a collaboration model with the McLaren F1 team. McLaren F1 ultra-lightweight split-seconds tourbillon chronograph, to celebrate a further in-depth collaboration with McLaren. The case is made of the iconic materials TPT® carbon fiber and orange TPT® quartz fiber, which intertwine with carbon fiber to give the watch its lightweight and robust properties. McLaren elements are found throughout the watch, including a distinctive logo at 6 o’clock on the case, a rubber strap with air vents shaped like the McLaren crescent logo, a wheel-shaped titanium crown on the side of the watch, and a redesign of the chronograph pushers to resemble the headlights of the McLaren 720S. The watch is powered by the RMAC3 automatic movement with an annual calendar and flyback chronograph series complication, which provides a 55-hour power reserve when fully wound. The watch is available in a limited edition of 500 pieces at a public price of $210,000, and is currently doubling in price on the second-hand market.
Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diving Green
Audemars Piguet, one of the first watchmakers to set off the trend of colorful discs and colorful labels in the watch industry, especially the colorful chronographs of those years, left a deep impression on people. This bold and youthful design has received a lot of praise, and the watch pictured here features a stainless steel case with an iconic octagonal shape and a 42mm diameter, with a yellow-green dial decorated with the “Mega Tapisserie” oversized pattern, complemented by the diving scale on the inner ring. Powered by a self-winding caliber 3120 with a power reserve of 60 hours, the watch is beautifully finished, especially with the brand’s logo and motif engraved on the gold oscillating weight. The watch comes with a bright green rubber strap in the same color as the dial, creating a cool sense of summer diving with the overall vibrant color, but I personally think this watch is too fussy to wear and difficult to manage well on the wrist.
Patek Philippe Nautilus 5980/1R
James Harden is really a watch collector. After Rolex, RICHARD MILLE and Audemars Piguet, we also see Harden wore a Patek Philippe Nautilus. Nautilus is a masterpiece by Patek Philippe. It’s a dream watch pieces to most of people, no matter stars from basketball, football and any kind of famous, they want to get one Nautilus or already got one. The model Harden wore in the picture is 5980/1R, one of the best Naautilus. It is made of rose gold with a black gradient dial and a unique timing ring of the Nautilus chronograph model, which is balanced and has an excellent texture. Official price is USD$12,000, but it has been double and double the price in secondhand market.
