Drake splashes out £4million on watch as he celebrates 35th birthday

One Dance rapper Drake recently celebrated his 35th birthday and treated himself to a £4 million ($5.5 million) watch to mark his special day.

It’s thought the rapper’s net worth is around $150 million, so a $5.5 million watch wouldn’t have been the massive buy it would have been for most people.

The designer of the watch, Richard Mille, is thought to have dropped the unique design back in 2019, and only one of them was made.

Drake, real name Aubrey Drake Graham, tasked New York jewellers, Pristine Jewelers, to hunt down the one-of-a-kind watch and, evidently, it successfully did so.

The high-end jewellers shared of picture on Instagram Friday 29 October, a few days after the rapper’s birthday, where the founder and owner of the store, Ofir Ben Shimon, could be seen standing next to Drake while both showing off their watches.

Drake looked suave as ever dressed in a turtleneck, navy velvet blazer, grey suit pants and Chelsea boots.

The photo’s caption read: “DO IT FOR THE CULTURE @champagnepapi 1 of 1 #rm5601sapphire Happy 35th Bday you did it right.”

An up-close photo of the prestige watch was also shared showing off it's incredibly intricate detailing. The face of the watch was a deep blue, while the outside of the face and the strap was clear.
