It’s been one hell of a season for Ray Rice. The Ravens running back rushed for a career high 1,364 yards, second most behind Maurice Jones-Drew of the Jaguars. With new Ravens fullback Vonta Leach busting heads for him up front, Rice reached the end zone fifteen times and averaged 4.7 yards per carry on the ground. He’s been the Ravens biggest threat on offense.
The fourth year running back doesn’t yet classify for veteran status in the NFL, but he’s certainly learned the ways of the league. That’s why on Monday, Rice passed out $4,500 watches to his offensive lineman and fullback.
Leach tweeted a picture of the Breitling Avenger that Ray Rice gave his big guys up front. Breitling is a luxury Swiss made watch with models from $3,000 to $100,000.
Here’s the description for the Avenger.
Within the Breitling philosophy, the conception of a chronograph is governed by four essential criteria: sturdiness, functionality, precision and aesthetic sophisti- cation. The Avenger is a perfect illustration of this approach. Equipped with a case that is particularly shockproof and water-resistant to 300 meters (1,000 ft), this instrument is available with various dial colors as well as a choice between a steel bracelet and a rubber or leather strap. A steely temperament combined with a selfwinding chronograph movement chronometer- certified by the COSC.
Now that’s class.
