Here's a Closer Look at DJ Khaled's $300,000 Watch
You know what they don't want you to have? A watch that costs more than the average American home.
But that's not a problem for DJ Khaled, the sartorially exuberant rapper/producer whose wardrobe includes everything from a bomber jacket made out of Goyard scarves to a pair of plaid-covered Jordans made to honour legendary sportscaster Craig Saiger. So it was no surprise to see Khaled filming an interview for Extra on Monday wearing a silk bomber that takes the metaphor to a new level. Instead of the decorated and embroidered versions lots of stylish guys are still sporting, this one featured a mind-boggling marriage of at least four disparate prints. For most guys, that would be enough of a look.
But DJ Khaled is not most guys.
He paired this eye-catching jacket with a diamond-covered Patek Philippe Nautilus. For perspective's sake, the Nautilus – which celebrates its 40th anniversary on the market this year – is one of the most iconic rich-guy watches in the world. They're incredibly rare and highly collectible, which accounts for their high price-tag: Even the simplest stainless steel models go for around $25,000.
But the one on Khaled's wrist, which has diamonds literally everywhere you look, easily costs over 10 times that much. Raymond Lee, a jeweler who serves South Florida's one percent, is currently selling a similar model for about $260,000. (It was originally listed for $300,000, so this is actually kind of a steal.)
Guys with average levels of discretionary income who want to get on this level may want to pick up a copy of Khaled's book, The Keys, which spills the moguls secrets to success. And if anything, its $12 sticker price is a lot cheaper than what's on his wrist.
