Kliff Kingsbury's Swaggy And Expensive-Looking Watch Is Probably Fake

Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury, the man who has gone to great lengths to craft a "James Bond coaches football" image for himself, showed up at Big 12 media days sporting a very expensive-looking watch. People on Twitter were taken aback by the watch, a Breitling Mulliner Tourbillon model that retails for over $100,000. The watch is most likely a cheap knockoff.


A helpful tipster alerted us to the fact that Kingsbury's watch, pictured above, bears a striking resemblance to various knockoffs that can be found on the internet for about $100. The real version of that watch looks like this:

But don't take our word for it! The fellas over at, who seem to know what the hell they are talking about, called out Kingsbury's watch as an obvious fake:

Fake tourbillon at 6 is a dead giveaway, plus wrong date font, subdial font, watch has pushers but no chronograph.


Another moderator chimes in:

Actually it could well have a chronograph based on the fact that it has a subdial to 30 (it doesn't, but the dial on this one doesn't reveal that).

There is no real Breitling with this dial layout, the only tourbillon Breitling is a 9 o'clock one, and this is a common low end fake that is instantly recognisable.


I don't really know what any of those words mean!

There's no shame in purchasing a knockoff version of an astoundingly expensive watch. But there's something about Kliff Kingsbury that tells me he's the kind of guy who would like you to believe he owns a $100,000 watch.
