Footballer pays HK$9.9 million for custom-made car keys

Emperor open copy_effWhen you’re ranked among the world’s best and most bankable footballers, skimping on gifts for friends and teammates simply isn’t an option. David Luiz, who plays for English club Chelsea, treated his teammates to custom-made car keys worth a combined total of £1million (HK$9.9 million) after they won the Premier League. Far from ordinary, these diamond-encrusted supercar keys can be worn like bracelets, and they sync up with a number of luxury car brands such as Lamborghini, Ferrari and Bugatti.David_Luiz_-_PSG
The UK-based company, Senturion, claims to be “the world’s first and only creator of ultra-luxury wristwear pieces” that synchronise with supercars. One of its models, the Emperor, features handcrafted rose gold, black diamonds, leather and titanium. It’s limited to just seven pieces in the world, practically guaranteeing that you won’t bump into anyone else with the same one. In fact, the brand calculates that only one in a billion people is a Senturion owner. Most impressively, pieces from the brand’s Meteorite Edition are forged from a 4-billion-year-old meteorite, and no two pieces in the collection are the same. It was one of these models that Luiz gifted to Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich – a surefire way to get on the boss’s good side.
