PABLO ESCOBAR'S DAYDATE.
This classic Yellow-Gold Rolex Day-Day has been encrusted with hundreds of miniature diamonds making it a truly one of a kind piece that is fitting of the King of Cocaine’s flashy style. Whilst you may think this custom Day-Date could command a huge amount at auction, it seems the history of the piece may have put the mass-markets off. Despite it’s $70,000 estimate, it eventually went to an anonymous buyer for only $8,500.
When asked why he wanted to remain anonymous, he simply replied “You never know who might track you down and ask for their things back.” Sold as part of a larger auction focused on seized, drug cartel assets, the buyer distanced himself from the bloody past of the items saying – “I don’t like where these things come from,” referring to the watches gangster past he insisted that “For me it’s just an investment.” #poker #luxury #druglord #luxurylifestyle #lux #luxury #billionaire #rich #whynot
