Tom Brady, whether you are a fan of NFL (National Football League) or not, I’m sure you’ve heard of this name before. And for football fans who follow the sport, the name Tom Brady represents the best of all time, like Michael Jordan in basketball.
While it’s not a smooth sailing in his 21 years of quarterback career, because of his not strong body, he was always questioned of lack of strength and speed, he has no sign of being a MVP in the future, not even a good player, so he was selected only in the 199th position by the legendary coach Billy Cheek, who was also the coach of New England Patriots. This white guy, who looks like never been to gym, step onto the field of Super Bowl the 10 times and win the 7th Super Bowl championships in 2021. For personal honor, he wins 5 Super Bowl MVPs and 3 regular season MVPs, all this make him the title of “The Best” in history. Super Bowl is the most important games in United States every year.
Last year Tom Brady announced that he would leave the New England Patriots, where he had played for 20 years, and the legendary coach Bill check, who had trained him since the draft, to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brady’s arrival directly enhances the team’s offensive capabilities, but before the season, he was also questioned that whether he can keep his ability like when he was Patriots or not, if he want to stay away of battle because his new team has no competitor, someone said that his success reply on his coach and the system build for him, it can even be said that no one is optimistic about his career in Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but Brady proved himself once again to be the GOAT and The best in history. In the game of Super Bowl on February 7, this 43-year-old veteran led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to victory over the last champion Kansas City Chiefs, and won his seventh Super Bowl Cups, the ageless myth continues his legend in Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue!
Coming to the subject of watches, Tom Brady has been one of ambassadors for Swiss watch brand IWC Schaffhausen in 2019. A few years ago, Brady also worked with some other watch brands, let’s check the watch collections of this super star.
Back in 2015, Tom Brady appeared at the launch of Tag Heuer’s new Carrera Heuer 01 Chronograph, announcing that he was the brand’s ambassador at the time. TAG Heuer consider that Tom Brady’s characteristic of strong, resilient personality and his uncompromising approach to pressure was the perfect match with TAG Heuer’s motto “Don’t Crack Under Pressure campaign”.
In the year of 2017, TAG HEUER design a new watch for Tom Brady. The watch is based on the Heuer 01 Chronograph and features a 43mm stainless steel, brush case, a tachymeter scale on the bezel and a dark blue dial with red elements, echoing the Patriots, the team Brady played for at the time. The watch features three sub-dials, and with a prominent number “12” written at the sub-dial at 12 o’clock, which is also Brady’s jersey number. The watch is powered by a Caliber 01 self-winding movement with skeleton bridges and a red column wheel provides a 50-hour power reserve when fully wound. The watch is limited to 466 pieces to tribute Brady’s 466 yards on 43-of-62 passing in the Super Bowl against the Atlanta Falcons, as well as the record he broke in Super Bowl. I personally think this Brady special edition watch, which is priced at $5,600, is a pretty good choice for Brady fans.
After ending his four-year partnership with Tag Heuer, Brady joined IWC in 2019 as a world-class athlete and brand ambassador. Brady’s unrelenting passion and dedication to pursuing his dreams, his endless passion of technical pursuit, complemented by hard work, are the perfect expression of IWC Schaffhausen’s core watchmaking philosophy. Brady, a watch enthusiast and collector, also has a collection of fine watches, among which an IWC Portuguese watch given by his wife, Gisele Bundchen, impressed the world the most.
Last year, IWC launched the TIME WELL SHARED project to encourage people to fight against COVID-19 around the world, together with their global family to share their knowledge and love of life through Twitter and Facebook, featuring IWC staff representatives, brand ambassadors and partners. Tom Brady wore an IWC Portuguese Perpetual Calendar watch on the show.
IWC Portuguese Perpetual Calendar watch was Launched in 2015 at the SIHH Geneva Watch Fair, the year of IWC’s 75th anniversary, the watch combines a perpetual calendar complication in platinum with a blue dial and a stunning double moon phase display. The case is 44.2 mm in diameter, and the night-blue dial, despite its numerous displays, is not at all cluttered, but rather neat and eye-catching, you can recognize the model at a glance . The moon phase display at 12 o’clock shows a starry night sky with a fairy-tale look on the dial and a four-digit year display at the position of 7:30.
The movement is equipped with a Pillarton self-winding system, with pawls and wheels made of black ceramic and oscillating weight bearings made of white ceramic, a robust high-tech material that allows automatic winding to operate almost without wear, The Breguet hairspring ensures maximum precision, and the entire movement is finished with the finest finishing touches. The fish scale motif and circular Côtes de Genève are scattered throughout the movement, while the skeletonized red gold oscillating weight is more refined and harmoniously proportioned, and the gold medallion features the Probus Scafusia, a reference to the exceptional technology and craftsmanship of Schaffhausen. The watch comes with a black 21mm Santoni crocodile leather strap.

And in July last year, IWC released a short promotional film of the story of Tom Brady, who chased his dreams as a child and eventually grew up to become a champion American football quarterback. In the video, Brady wears one of his favorite watches, the Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN Navy Air Unit Chronograph.
The Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN Navy Air Warfare Unit was created specifically for navy aviators, because when flying supersonic jet fighters, the watch must be able to withstand super G forces, and because the exposure of aircraft carriers to humid, salty ocean air and the long duration of their missions can put enormous pressure on the material of the watch by external factors, so in 2012, IWC created this collection by choosing rugged, corrosion-resistant black Zirconia ceramic, and titanium. The black ceramic also allows the pilot to operate the warplane without reflective effects. With a diameter of 44.5 mm and a black dial with luminous hands and hour markers, the watch features three subdials, a day date window at 3 o’clock and a red small second hand at 6 o’clock. The watch is equipped with the IWC 69380 self-winding movement with a power reserve of 46 hours, water resistance is 60 meters. The watch is fitted with a black, comfortable 20mm fabric watch band, which is also particularly in keeping with the aura of this tough black flight watch.

In the film Brady enjoy a leisurely moment with his family and children, he also wears a white watch, the Portuguese Automatic, also known as the Portuguese 7, the one that could be many people’s first choice for formal occasions. This Portuguese 7 was launched in the occasion of the 75th anniversary of IWC in 2015, the design style tribute the charm inherited from the legendary Portuguese watches born in the 1930s, adhering to the three elements of simplicity, harmony and elegance. The 42.3 mm case in stainless steel features a silver-plated dial with blue hands and blue inset hour markers to indicate the time, as well as an orbital minute scale. The two subsidiary dials have a sunburst effect, with a 7-day power reserve display at 3 o’clock, that is also where the name Portuguese 7 comes from, a small second counter at 9 o’clock and a black-on-white date window at 6 o’clock. The watch is equipped with an in-house caliber 52010, the movement equip a long power reserve of 168 hours thanks to the double barrel, as well as the black ceramic pawl for the winding mechanism or the fine Geneva stripes embellished by the transparent back case.
What I respect for IWC’s collaboration with Brady is that instead of making him to endorse such grand complications as the Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar, Brady is allowed to wear the two models that best suit his temperament, the toughness of the TOPGUN black ceramic and the simplicity of the Portuguese 7, making our MVP all time a gentleman. We look forward to Brady continuing to bring us exciting games in the future.
