Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has given each member of the Blues' victorious Premier League squad a custom-made Hublot watch worth £9,000.
The Hublot watches are a unique design with a Chelsea lion on the face and were temporarily displayed on Instagram by Brazilian winger Willian and England Under-21 midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah.
"On behalf of Mr Abramovich and also on behalf of the board of directors of the club, congratulations on creating history during the 2016/17 season," read the message from chairman Bruce Buck published in the Daily Mail.
"It's been a campaign to remember. Keep the blue flag flying."
Swiss watch brand Hublot are one of the club's corporate partners and also sponsored their end-of-season awards.
The watch is a limited edition with only 200 made and despite its lavish price-tag, falls some way short of the prizes given out to Leicester City's players for their triumph the season before.
Last summer, the Foxes squad were each given a £100,000 BMW car for their extraordinary title success by Thai owner Vichai Shrivaddhanaprabha.
