Pharrell wore a $983,000 Richard Mille watch to The Lion King premiere last night

Aside from schooling everyone on how to do summer suiting (Just William shorts and a blazer combo FYI), Pharrell Williams also proved to every man on the red carpet that he quite possibly has the best watch game. Ever.

Attending the premiere of the new live-action remake of The Lion King alongside newly-made billionaire Jay-Z, Williams showed off his own riches by way of some seriously expensive wrist gear. The watch in question is a Richard Mille RM 25-01 Tourbillon Adventure Watch and it costs $983,000.

And before you give your accountant a call to see if you can get your hands on one, we're afraid to say there's really not much of a chance. Just 20 of the watches were made worldwide, and they have been snapped up by the likes of Williams and Sylvester Stallone.

The RM 25-01 Tourbillon Adventure Watch was designed as a collaboration with Stallone, notably with Rambo in mind. Its solid TPT carbon and titanium case is around 51mm in diameter and 23mm thick. The body features a waterproof compartment to contain water purification tablets to make water drinkable, in case you find yourself in a Rambo-esque situation. Everything is fuelled by a manual-wind mechanical movement, the RM 25-01 calibre, and it even has a Bear Grylls' Man Vs Wild-ready 72 hours of power reserve.

Yes, we wish we had one too…
