HOW long left, ref?
Football managers are always looking at their watches, gesturing to referees to add injury time on or calling out time wasting.

But some spend an absolute fortune on their timepieces, after all a watch is the most important accessory to a man’s closet.
Sean Dyche and Jose Mourinho love to keep track on time with an expensive kettle and hob.
Let SunSport tell you who has the most expensive…
The Spurs boss is an ambassador for Swiss company Hublot and a self-confessed watch fanatic.
He approves of their Big Bang Unico Bi-retrograde Chrono model, which retails at around £25k.

Mourinho has also worn the ‘King Power Mourinho’, made with a sapphire dial and crystals, that costs in the region of £17k.
Incidentally, the Big Bang is the same watch that Diego Maradona once owned before he passed away.

Charity is high on ex-Arsenal boss Arsene’s mind when it comes to what watch he wants wrapped around his wrist.
He has been known to wear an IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition ‘Galapagos Islands.’
Costing around £8,650, sales from this model are donated to a charity that conserves the Galapagos Island.

A firm believer in modesty, the Burnley boss goes all out there with his watch choice.
Sean favours Patek Philippe’s 5990/1A which would have set him back an astonishing £45k.
He switches to digital watches for games, just so he can be extra cautious of time, but it’s personally where he is top of the Premier League.

He’s use to modest operations, as former Bournemouth coach he had to manage their Premier League aspirations on a modest budget.
So is it any wonder he shuns expensive jewellery for a simple and effective Apple watch.
It would’ve set him back somewhere in the region of £200, which means he’s a frugal spender.

Inter Milan boss Conte is a man who likes the finer things in life, and has a penchant for a classic timepiece.
And despite not investing his money in expensive cars, he’s keen on having a quality watch.
Conte is a classic gent who goes with a Rolex Daytona, which can cost around £10k.

‘Big Sam’ is a fan of the expensive things in life, he has a fondness for driving luxury Bentleys for one.
And the former England boss likes to be equally as lavish with what he accessorises with.
That’s why he’s opted for Hublot’s Big Bang Unico Chronograph, titanium, rose gold skeleton dial number.
It would cost somewhere in the region of £27,000.

Like Wenger, Liverpool’s flamboyant boss goes with Swissmaker IWC’s range of watches.
He prefers the IWC Pilots Chronograph 377701, a modest choice for a man on a bumper contract at Anfield.
It retails for around £4,000, and is interestingly also the watch of choice for Jeremy Clarkson.

He’s a fashionista when it comes to his dress sense, but he’s not top of the league when it comes to watches.
Company man Pep keeps track of time on a £1,900 Cimier QNETCity Automatic, among others from the brand.
There were only 1,880 made for when the club celebrated the year it was founded back in 2016, so in time its value will soar.
However, he is mostly seen wearing a £9,000 Rolex Deep Sea Dweller.

‘Moysie’ is in good company.
The West Ham boss has the same watch as Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney – a Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Moonphase 5396G worth around £30k.
It’s his trusted go-to, which he wears almost religiously during every game and he has two of them – in gold and silver!
Moyes does have an enviable watch collection and also likes Patek Philippe’s Nautilus range as well.

His watch choice isn’t quite as pragmatic as his team’s style on the pitch.
The PSG boss loves wearing IWC – like his former crosstown rival Arsene Wenger.
He has worn, in the past, their Aquatimer Chronograph Edition ‘Expedition Charles Darwin’ watch.
That would’ve cost him around £8,350, which is chump change for a manager on a huge contract with the French champions.
