How to get a Rolex Cup for Drake
Miami, Florida, 2022
Golden, who has been selling every vintage watch in Miami since 2014, heard from a jeweler friend in Canada that a very good client of his was trying to sell a Paul Newman Daytona. The owner is getting old and his children don’t want to keep it anymore (imagine!!). They considered taking it to an auction house, but missed the deadline to submit it. His jeweler was not used to working with such expensive items, so he called him Golden.
Golden said: “I almost didn’t take it seriously because the photos were so bad. “But [Canadian jeweler’s] said to me, ‘Listen, he’s not going to let me take better pictures or send it to you to check out. In the end, Golden was able to convince the jeweler to bring the man and his watch to his shop in Toronto, so he could collect a few more paintings near the window. light. The images are convincing enough. Golden said: “The crystal has been completely abraded. However, even without the polished glass, Golden can still say: “If this watch is what I think it is, it will be a great example.”

Before Golden booked his ticket to Toronto, a group of people—has an established identity drastically protected!—to Gerald Amerosi’s Gerald Peters, an “official Rolex jeweler,” in the crown’s fancy parlance, in Staten Island. They were looking for a Paul Newman Daytona of unbelievable quality, the best possible quality, as they wanted to give it to Drake for his 36th birthday in October.
Amerosi needed someone who knew the second hand market so he contacted Joey Caleca, who was passing by. Wrist follower. Together, they set out to find a match worthy of a man famously stingy about friendship. They approached Marco Nicolini and Gold. “Both have some options,” said Joey. “The first option Adam had that we were going to take was actually sold, and then Adam miraculously pulled this Canadian out and we needed it urgently, urgently, urgently.”
Golden pushed his flight to Toronto earlier so Drake didn’t have an empty box to open on his birthday. He met the owner of the watch and his wife. “He really is a sweet old man,” said Golden.
