Jason Kelce's Custom Rolex at Retirement Announcement Had a Sweet Nod to Philadelphia Eagles

The watch features a green dial and a black ceramic bezel

<p>Tim Nwachukwu/Getty</p> Jason Kelce #62 of the Philadelphia Eagles greets members of the media after announcing his retirement from the NFL at NovaCare Complex on March 04, 2024 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Jason Kelce's time in the NFL may be over, but his unwavering loyalty to the Philadelphia Eagles shines on through his style choices.

During his retirement press conference on March 4, the 36-year-old football player paid homage to his team by wearing an Eagles T-shirt with the sleeves cut off. However, Jason's allegiance didn't stop there. He also proudly displayed his dedication with a discontinued yellow 18k gold Rolex GMT-Master II that includes a green dial and a black ceramic bezel.

Back in February, Jason revealed on the Green Light with Chris Long podcast the watch was a special team commission following the Eagles' Super Bowl win in 2018. According to the Wrist Aficionado website, the watch has a resale value of $51,900.00.

"Super Bowl rings aren’t fun to wear. First of all, you feel kind of like a douche, a little bit, I feel like, when you’re wearing it. It feels like you’re like, ‘Oh, look at me! I won a Super Bowl!'” he said on the podcast.

He added, “And they’re also really big and clunky. Like, it’s already giving me a blister on my finger. They’re not comfortable. So we all decided — along with a couple other guys on the team — let’s just have Rolexes made commemorating the Super Bowl.”

During the episode Long also joked about how Jason is the only guy who can pull off a Rolex with flip flops, which have become a signature part of his style.

At the press conference, Travis Kelce was seen wiping away tears as his brother emotionally announced his retirement.

Travis, 34, was in the front row alongside their parents, Donna and Ed Kelce, as well as Jason's wife, Kylie Kelce as Jason delivered a heartfelt address to say that he was ending his NFL career.

Jason spoke about the relationship with his brother, mentioning their years playing sports together as kids and the joy they both felt when the other was drafted into the NFL. "We have a small family. No cousins, one aunt, one uncle. It was really my brother and I our whole lives," Jason explained. "We did almost everything together — competed, fought, laughed, cried and learned from each other."

He recalled "inventing games" with Travis, and said they "imagined" themselves as "star players" in the NFL one day. "We won countless Super Bowls in our minds before ever leaving the house," Jason said.

Of Travis's support throughout the years, Jason said, "It made me stronger, tougher, smarter, and taught me the values of cooperation, loyalty, patience and understanding."
