When it’s all said and done, Drake will go down as one of the most culturally influential and musically dominant artists of all time, if he hasn’t already. Recently passing the Beatles for the most top-five singles in Billboard history, the Canadian rapper also lays claim to the records for most top-ten singles, most songs peaking at the number-two spot, most songs debuting at number one (and in the top ten), and most consecutive weeks on the Hot 100 singles chart, among other accomplishments. At one point in 2021, his tracks also occupied 9 of the top 10 positions on the chart simultaneously. One could argue that today’s world of features makes these feats easier than in the days when nearly each single was performed by a single artist or band. However, today’s music trends also increase an artist’s cultural ubiquity.
Drake’s cultural ubiquity has been occurring since 2008, and yet he still dominates the news and the charts with each and every move he makes, be it in music or business or fashion or liquor…or even watches. By itself, the Rolex Sky-Dweller Ref. 326259TBR fetches a few hundred thousand dollars on the aftermarket. However, Diamond Watches London just acquired a particular version of the diamond-encrusted automatic timepiece that was owned and worn by Drake for just a few weeks.
Featuring diamonds all throughout the 42mm white gold case and bezel, the 2021 watch sports a coveted Oysterflex rubber bracelet and a meteorite silver dial with diamonds for the hour markers as well. Prior to going up for sale, this very Rolex was worn on Drake’s wrist in the music videos for both DJ Khaled’s “Staying Alive” and Jack Harlow’s “Churchill Downs.” It comes inside its original box with its original papers.
If you’re ready to purchase a timepiece worn by Champagne Papi himself, you can head over to Diamond Watches London, where Drake’s previously-owned Rolex Sky-Dweller is on sale for £400,000 (~$459,746).
