From Frozen Pateks to the ultra-rare Richard Milles and the more exotic wonders of Jacob & Co., here’s a look at Drake’s “Certified Lover Boy” multi-million dollar watch collection.
For Drake, nothing is off limits, and his collection of watches is just proof of that. Champagne Papi aka Drizzy aka 6 God aka Aubrey ‘Drake’ Graham is currently breaking records with his latest album, Boy in love certified. Being his 7th studio album, Drake is today a certified GOAT in the rap game with a corresponding bank account. Aside from all the Rolls-Royces, Veyrons and Mercedes parked in his garage and the OVO chains, there is one guilty pleasure he obviously never tires of: luxury watches.
Here’s a quick look at Drake’s collection of ultra-extravagant watches.
Richard Mille RM-69 “Erotic” Tourbillon
Drizzy showed up to support his favorite team, the Toronto Raptors, in the 2019 NBA Finals with some seriously NSFW bracelets. Along with the grade 5 titanium baseplate and south-facing tourbillon, the focus is on roll-up dial panels designed for dirty conversations. You can mix and match 18 highly erotic massages, one of them being “I want to devour your body”. Yes, you get the idea. Priced at $ 750,000 and limited to 30 pieces.
Custom Richard Mille RM-037
While winning two Billboard Music Awards in 2019, Drake wore an absolutely royal red wine costume and some serious arm candy. A pink gold RM-037 with every square centimeter enriched with brilliant-cut diamonds. The outer part of the dial showcases the elegant movement with its skeletal shape while the interior features a red panel, completing the rapper’s costume. It came with a price tag of $ 385,500.
Patek Philippe Nautilus Custom 5719 / 10G
What appears to be a diamond chandelier on her wrist is actually a Nautilus 5719 / 10G which houses exactly 1,343 diamonds, including 185 baguette-cut diamonds on the bezel and central link of her bracelet. Being a custom, it’s hard to pinpoint its exact dollar figure, but we’re guessing it’s close to $ 520,000 given all that bling.
Richard Mille RM-055 “Bubba Watson”
This is perhaps one of our favorite pieces from the Drake watch collection – a Richard Mille RM 055 “Bubba Watson” with a case iced out with brilliant cut diamonds. The virtually suspended dial features a rose gold bodywork while the case is crafted from NTPT carbon. This stunner drives the market price up to nearly $ 250,000.
Patek Philippe Nautilus 5976 / 1G 40th Anniversary Edition
Posing with his son Adonis in hand alongside baby-mum and French artist Sophie Brussaux, Drake wears an owl Patek Philippe Nautilus 5976 / 1G marking the line’s 40th anniversary with the engraving “1976-40-2016” on its dial . The piece also has a cool chronograph and a date window. Limited to only 1,300 pieces and markets for approximately $ 320,000.
Jacob & Co. Astronomy “Casino”
Limited to just 18 pieces, this breathtaking creation from Jacob & Co. sells for north of $ 620,000. Visually it’s very alluring, but let me tell you what makes it a mechanical wonder as well. When the button is pressed at 8 o’clock, the roulette wheel will spin, causing the small white ceramic ball to fly. After which, you can only hope that you have bet on the right color. It’s a real casino on your wrist guys, place your bets. Conor McGregor is the only other known owner of this timepiece.
RM 27-04 Tourbillon “Rafael Nadal”
At this point, Drake’s penchant for Richard Mille watches couldn’t be more evident. In his latest music video for ‘Way 2 Sexy’ which is currently rocking the world charts, he wears a stunning RM 27-04 “Rafael Nadal” Tourbillon. The piece is in fact a mechanical marvel. It has a micro-blasted twine net composed of a single woven steel cable measuring 0.27 mm in diameter and held in place by two tensioners. Limited to 50 pieces, it costs north of a million dollars.
Jacob & Co. Five time zones
We have reason to believe that DJ Khaled gave Drake this Jacob & Co. watch as a token of their friendship. Either way, as the name suggests, the watch shows the time in five zones using five dials, each in a different color. It also has a diamond bezel, a black dal base and a date window at 6 o’clock. Bring you cool $ 20,000.
Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726 personalized by Mad Paris and Virgil Abloh
Redesigned my menswear juggernaut, Virgil Abloh and French fashion house, Mad Paris, this one-of-a-kind Patek Philippe Nautilus 5726 is fully encrusted with green emeralds. The watch is also admired by many other rappers for its unique craftsmanship and fittings. It also has an annual calendar and a moon phase complication. Perhaps the most exclusive piece in Drake’s watch collection.
