Hardik Pandya, a versatile Mumbai (MI) Indian, has denied allegations that customs officials seized his obscenely expensive watches at Mumbai airport on Tuesday. In the freshly ended ICC World T20 2021, the stylish Indian cricketer had an unforgettable outing with Virat Kohli’s India team. Hardik Pandya, one of the Pandya brothers, was also dropped from India’s white ball selection for the T20I series against New Zealand.
According to the Mumbai Customs Department, the cricketer ace’s two wristwatches (worth Rs 5 crores) were detained upon his return from Dubai after India’s early departure from the T20 World Cup. Pandya, who is known for flaunting his lavish lifestyle on social media, is one of the hottest cricketers on and off the pitch.
Hardik Pandya, a devoted father to his son Agastya, is also a family man who enjoys spending quality time with his family members. Pandya’s passion for high end watches is well known. Let’s take a look at some of the stylish watches worn by Mumbai Indians and Team India superstar Hardik Pandya, as he is no stranger to wearing some of the most high-end watches.
1. Patek Philippe Nautilus Platinum
Pandya, a versatile player, is undoubtedly one of the highest paid cricketers in India. Pandya’s watch collection is worth around INR 11 crore, according to a report by GQ India.

Patek Philippe watches were also worn by Pandya’s colleague and Indian captain Virat Kohli.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) awarded Hardik the Grade A contract in April. The annual retainer for Indian players in the Grade A category is INR 5 crore.
