Drake has serious luxury watch chops, and he displayed as much while seated courtside at a Toronto Raptors-Philadelphia 76ers game. His glittering Patek Philippe made a more than half-million dollar statement for the Canadian side.
The rapper was wearing what watch-tracking Instagram @insaneluxurylife says is “his new extremely rare @patekphilippe 5719/10R-010 in rose gold.”
The same account indicates this watch “features 100 brilliant-cut diamonds and 32 baguette-cut diamonds, the bracelet 803 brilliant-cut diamonds, and 150 baguette diamonds.”
That’s not all. The dial is also reportedly “set with 255 brilliant-cut diamonds” in addition to “3 baguette diamond hour markers.” Altogether, that’s a whopping 1,343 diamonds.
A similar watch currently for sale via Chrono24 goes for a cool $611,178.
There’s a lot more bling on the man’s hand than the watch, though–he’s also wearing a custom ring designed to commemorate the Raptors NBA championship. It bears 650 diamonds and 16 rubies.
The music mogul and Raptors “ambassador” first unveiled the ring in October in an Instagram story which was captured by Twitter account devoted to all things Drake.
Patek Philippe’s Nautilus line comes in white gold, so it’s the rose gold that really makes Drake’s watch stand apart–but it’s a stunning timepiece regardless.
Drake has upstaged games with his watches before. He caused an odd stir in August 2019 when he wore a wild “erotic” Richard Mille timepiece to the NBA finals.
And yes, the erotic part is not a joke–see below.
It’s natural to initially question why a man would go out in public with nearly a million dollars on his wrist and finger–watch and ring value added together. People with a lot less means than Drake would never take that risk.
There are two answers: security guards, and because he can.
