Patek Philippe Nautilus Replica With Emeralds Dial
Drake’s custom Patek Philippe replica might look the part, but probably won’t impress the actual watchmakers over at the Swiss firm, who notoriously frown upon custom models. The slimed-out, emerald-encrusted Patek Philippe Nautilus was actually mentioned in his track “The Life Is Good”, which dropped earlier this year, and a couple of days later Champagne Papi was boasting about it over on the ‘gram.
Made in collaboration with Mad Paris and designed by Virgil Abloh, Drake’s AAA quality Patek Philippe Nautilus copy is covered (strap included) in emeralds. Not bad.
Audemars Piguet x Matthew Williams
While the rest of us took a pause on spending this year, Drake carried on. He flashed this Alyx-customised Swiss movement copy Audemars Piguet Royal Oak back in July, which was made by Matthew Williams and, again, custom-jewellery designer to the stars Mad Paris.
A favourite among the rich and famous, with fans including Kanye West, Jay-Z, Justin Bieber and Neil Patrick Harris, luxury fake Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak doesn’t need any updating, but Drake and Williams went there. Released back in October 2019, the Alyx x Mad Paris x AP is pretty special. Unmistakably Alyx, the Audemars features an industrial steel case, brushed steel face, AP and 1017 Alyx 9SM typographic logos and the latter’s signature buckle strap attached to a steel bracelet.
At the time, only 40 of the custom AP Royal Oak watches were made available to buy, at a hefty price of $47,995.
