So How About (Another) Act Of Bling !!!

 Spotlight: Eric Clapton.
So, you know your awesome when you have a "custom" Patek Philippe. Most Swiss Monsters know that Mr. Clapton is not just an amazing musician, but also a watch-nut. A few years back Mr. Clapton downsized his collection by way of a charity auction. Eric Clapton, like John Mayer or vice versa, is a huge fan of vintage Rolex Chronographs. In this photo Mr. Clapton is wearing a $150,000 Patek Philippe. Please note that his "Patek 5970" is not the standard, if one can call any Patek standard, but an example with a custom dial configuration. The indices are numerals not white gold markers. This may seem insignificant to someone who may not realize some of the wealthiest people in the world wear Patek Philippe and persuading the company to make a custom anything is not an easy feat.
