Shedeur Sanders’ Watch: How the Famous Celebration Came to Fruition

    Shedeur Sanders has taken the world by storm with his talent on the field and his celebration off. How did Shedeur Sanders' Watch celebration come to be?

    Love them or hate them, the Colorado Buffaloes are by far and away one of the most popular teams in college football. Ever since Deion Sanders took over the reins, he’s turned the national spotlight directly on the Buffaloes.

    However, no one on this team bathes in the national spotlight more than his son, Shedeur Sanders, and his now famous watch celebration.

    Shedeur Sanders’ Watch: How the Famous Celebration Came to be

    Though we first saw him flash the watch following Colorado’s victory over Colorado State during the postgame interview, Sanders’ watch flex started gaining immense popularity following the Colorado-Arizona State game.

    In an intense matchup, the Arizona State student section decided to get particularly chirpy at Sanders. As his head coach and father, Deion Sanders, would say, Shedeur took that personally and orchestrated a game-winning drive to take down the Sun Devils.

    Sanders didn’t take this trash talk lightly and, after the game-winning field goal split the uprights, ran over to the student section. He stood there and held out his watch to a crowd of boos in the Sun Devil student section.

    This celebration took hold of the sports world and had athletes like New York Jets RB Breece Hall and Las Vegas Raiders WR Davante Adams both mimicking his celebration in the following weeks. 

    What Brand Is Shedeur Sanders’ Watch?

    The watch the Sanders wears and was seen flexing is a custom Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15500 coated with 30 carats of VVS diamonds. This sounds expensive, and it is.

    The original watch is $30,000, but since it’s customized, it’s been said to reach $70,000.
