From the Dugout to the Wrist: Dave Roberts’ Watches

1. Panerai Luminor Marina (PAM 422)

This model was introduced back in 2011, and it features the P.3001 caliber with small seconds, minutes, and hour hands at 9 o’clock along with a power reserve of three-day, everything in a 47 mm case having an open casebook. The sharp-eyed readers would undoubtedly recognize this PAM 422. This piece has been crafted huge purposefully and has been designed to be legible totally while driving underwater. For Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, the piece serves a different purpose. He uses the hour markers of the watch to flash the score of the recent Dodgers beatdown easily. Their current Panerai Luminor Lineup can be checked in the official website.

2. IWC Big Pilot Perpetual Calendar ‘Mojave Desert’

An earth color, containing notes of khaki and beige, the ‘Mojave Desert’ has been inspired by the barren desert landscape and the flight suits around China Lake, where the well-known TOP GUN flight school is situated. IWC Mojave Desert is Robert’s favorite watch, and what makes this timepiece so special is that it very well goes with his precision, durability, and toughness.

The ceramic screw with transparent sapphire glass case back and screw-in crown contains a myriad of features which includes a year window display, date subdials, perpetual moon phase display, day, and month. It features a monochromatic design. The dark brown dial contains luminescence along with a beige rubber with a textile inlay strap.

Among other beauties, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts has been spotted wearing this AP Royal Oak Offshore. Since 1993, the Royal Oak Offshore collection has recognized conventions giving a sportier and more powerful take on this Royal Oak Offshore Diver. The ‘Mega A-Tapisserie’ dial of the piece enhances the sporty aesthetics. The 42 mm generous diameter of the watch paved the way for timepieces of large size. Its push-piece guards increase the strong lines and sturdiness of the watch.

Powering the watch is the in-house made AP caliber 3124/3841 chronograph movement. From dressy and classic to sporty and modern, this two-register chronograph piece is unique in its way. It has a simple chronograph dial and offers a cleaner time-only dial. Karim Benzema has a fascination for AP Royal Oak watches.

What Watches Dave Roberts Own? 

“Doc” Roberts’ baseball career being both team manager and outfielder is quite impressive by any means. Shepherding a team over a pretty long season to a World Series win needs precision, durability, and toughness, everything part of what makes his favorite collection of watches. In the most bizarre baseball season ever, the Los Angeles Dodgers Roberts defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1 to close the 2020 World Series. The Dodgers’ World Series attack against Tampa Bay was led by Mookie Betts which was clearly on display during the series. Lest we forget, this very Dave Roberts, whose stolen base in the playoffs of 2004 against the Yankees, boosted the Red Sox to their foremost World Series title in their 86 years. Congratulations to the manager Dave Roberts and the Los Angeles Dodgers win.

Dave Roberts is clearly a man of great taste. With this guy as a coach, the Dodgers had actually had a chance to finally meet our expectations. Roberts’ career includes a World Series win in the year 2020. It is quite unusual to see baseball managers wearing a uniform similar to their platers as if they are ready to pinch-hit at any moment. At each major sport, the managers are seen stalking the sidelines in team-issued hoodies, polos, and suits. Dave Roberts, the team manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, wears his team uniform. However, he does not strictly adhere to the game-ready attire. But Robert’s huge timepieces, particularly his big-as-a-baseball Panerai Luminor Marina that he wore at the 2020 World Series Finale, was quite easy to spot. The Panerai worn by Dave Roberts is going pretty well with the World Series Ring. He also owns some other notable timepieces, as we have seen above.
