Despite Shaquille O’Neal’s $400 Million Net Worth, Floyd Mayweather Makes Him Look “Cheap” With His Prized Possession

Floyd Mayweather and NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal share many similarities. Both athletes were able to replicate their success on the court or in the ring in the financial world by using the wealth earned during their careers and making smart investments. The pair are now reaping the rewards of those investments, with both still remaining multi-millionaires even after retirement.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, O’Neal has an estimated net worth of $400 million, while Mayweather is worth $450 million. However, there is one area where “Money” carries the NBA legend’s number. In 2020, O’Neal launched his own watch line with Invicta, a Swiss watch brand. The collection includes 244 watches whose prices vary by four digits.

Additionally, its Invicta SHAQ .17 Carat Diamond – 55mm Gold Steel (37598) Men’s Watch is priced at $1,119. This is the cheapest watch in the collection, with the highest being worth $9,999. However, that pales in comparison to the most prized watch in the Mayweather collection.

The former 4-division champion owns a unique Billionaire watch from Jacob & Co., which he bought in the summer of 2018 for a whopping $18 million. This timepiece is one of the rarest in the world and features 260 carats of emerald-cut baguette diamonds, set in 18k white gold. It also includes a rectangular dial, also in white gold, showing the skeletonized movement within, with the tourbillon escapement.
