Kanye West Is No Longer A Billionaire, But He’s Still Living The Lavish Lifestyle: Explore His $5 Million Watch Collection

Kanye West, also known as Ye, is an American rapper, songwriter, record producer, and fashion designer.

Born in Atlanta and raised in Chicago, West initially gained recognition as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records in the early 2000s, producing singles for several artists and developing the “chipmunk soul” sampling style.Recently, he was all over the news because of the split between him and Adidas, who had sponsored him for years. Adidas has distanced itself from Kanye West after his largely condemned anti-Semitic remarks. Okay, okay, we are not gonna continue talking gossip here. As watch lovers, let’s just talk about his watch collection, which includes everything from traditional Rolex watches to unique horology timepieces.

Cartier CrаshLet’s start off with his timepiece that looks really weird, but fun. While he was being interviewed by David Letterman in 2019 for Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, the controversial rappers was seen wearing the Cartier Crаsh in yellow gold. The watch resembles a dripping clock in a Salvador Dali painting. Looking back at the history, the Crаsh was created by Jean-Jacques Cartier in partnership with Rupert Emmerson, and for many years, the persistent myth surrounding the watch’s inspiration was that it was modeled after a Cartier watch that had been worn by the victim of a car аccident and had been melted into an intriguing shape by the impact and fire. The Crаsh is actually now one of the world’s truly notable watches.

It matches the yellow-gold case. The combo really fits the rapper!

Rolex Submariner Blue Dial 116618A couple of days after he released his new album ‘Donda,’ he was seen wearing one of Rolex’s signature models, the Submariner. The timepiece seen on his wrist is the Rolex Submariner 116618 in yellow gold, featuring a 40 mm yellow gold case and blue bezel made in blue ceramic with a matching blue dial. This model is no longer in production.

Rolex Yacht-Master II 116688Kanye West also has the beautiful Rolex Yacht-Master II.The watch features a white baton dial, housing a regatta chronograph function surrounded by a 10-minute countdown with a blue ceramic bezel on a yellow gold Rolex Oyster bracelet. With a new dial and hands distinctive from Rolex Professional models, the Yacht-Master II improves legibility and sharpens its aesthetic appeal. The dial now has a triangular hour marker at 12 o’clock for easier reading of the watch and a rectangular hour marker at 6 o’clock. The hour hand can be easily distinguished from the minute hand thanks to a luminescent disc. The countdown on the Yacht-Master II can be set for a time between one and ten minutes. The mechanism memorizes the programming so that it can reset itself and go back to the initial setting. Once it has begun, the countdown can be instantly adjusted to coincide with the official race countdown.The Yacht-Master II is the epitome of elegance and distinction, oh, and expensiveness, with a stunning white dial and a regatta chronograph watch made specifically for yachting competition.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar 25829ORNext is Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Openworked Perpetual Calendar 25829OR in rose gold. The transparent sapphire dial with white indicators and blackened gold hands, indicates the day, date, moon phases, month and leap years. I must sаy this timepiece is one of the most stunning timepieces in Kanye West watch collection.Watches with a perpetual calendar display the day, date, month, and a leap year. It means, a perpetual calendar corrects date and year cycle (and subsequently day, month, and moonphase too) in perpetuity.If another question is raised, ‘what is a leap year?’ A leap year is a calendar year with an additional day added to synchronise the calendar year with the astronomical year. This additional day is added to the end of the shortest month, February (now you know why February has 29 days once every four years). Scienctific speaking, Earth takes approximately 365.25 days to orbit the sun. So, it needs 366 days to orbit every four years.Therefore, to make up for the missing day, we add one day to our calendar approximately every four years. Any year evenly divisible by 4 is a leap year, for example, 2000, 2004, 2008, etc.

BAPE G-Shоck DW6900The last timepiece in Kanye West Watch Collection I want to feature is the beefy tough Japanese G-Shоck which is well-known for its durability.The G-Shоck we can see in the picture is a collaboration between A Bathing Ape and G-Shоck – BAPE G-Shоck DW-6900.
