The Richard Mille watch is one of the most coveted symbols of success in the world, and while Diddy has some of his own in the manger, Diddy wants black men to invest their money in other ways.
In a series of stories about the gram, Diddy shared his thoughts on the recent trend of buying the Swiss luxury company’s watches, expressing that people are being “tricked” into wearing them.
“I’m in my pocket right now. I’m not a hater, I’m a fly shit connoisseur and I’m just telling you all, you’re all being tricked by the Richard Mille, ”he said.
Diddy went on to compare the watches to a cheaper brand called Timex, which can be found at local retailers like Walmart and Target. He even went so far as to say that Richard Milles are “ugly” right now.
“The Richard Mille is like a Timex or some shit,” he said. “Y’all, it’s not hot. It’s not hot. I have two or three, I never pull them out. You ugly. I don’t even want hate. I don’t even know Richard Mille, but fuck it. I’m on some black shit Black men, save your money and buy a house. “
Diddy’s comments only come on the heels of some of his colleagues who are bending their Richard Milles on the gram. James Harden and Yo Gotti featured their watches on their Instagram stories, and Drake recently gave one of the pieces to Young Thug for his 30th birthday. Nicki Minaj set the tone for the buzz a few weeks ago when she stepped out in her rare pink Richard Mille watch for $ 980,000.
