PHOENIX — Phoenix Suns stars Devin Booker and Chris Paul and Arizona Cardinals legend Larry Fitzgerald are reportedly among the investors in a secondary watch marketplace.

They are part of a group that includes NBA legend Michael Jordan and two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo investing in WatchBox, which lets people buy, sell and trade luxury watches online, CNBC reported last week.

Antetokounmpo was Booker’s and Paul’s nemesis last summer when he led the Milwaukee Bucks past the Suns in the NBA Finals.

Watchbox has brought in $260 million in financing since being founded in 2017, according to CNBC.

Booker said in a 2019 video for GQ Sports that his dad collected watches when he was growing up, a hobby he’s taken on since joining the Suns.

Paul, in his 17th NBA season, is also well versed in the jewelry.

A similar version of Paul’s rare Patek Philippe World Time piece sold for $5.54 million at auction in November 2020, according to GQ.

Rolex, Patek Philippe, F.P. Journe and Omega are among the featured brands on WatchBox’s website.

Bucks owner Marc Lasry and NFL Hall of Famer Michael Strahan are also investors in WatchBox, according to CNBC.
