Mother, as they say, knows best.

When New York Giants star Victor Cruz wanted to purchase the uber-expensive Presidential Rolex, he knew he had to got one woman's permission. So after signing his first NFL contract, Cruz phoned his mom to make sure she was OK with his purchase. At first Cruz's mother was skeptical, but she eventually relented.

Cruz says he purchased the watch immediately after hanging up.

In a recently released GQ interview, Cruz talks about his sweet timepiece and which U.S. president actually wore the same one.

In case you were wondering, the retail price for the watch is more than $30,000.
