Ed Sheeran, Pop Star and Watch Enthusiast, Gifts Fans Free Pizza Donning a $1 Million Rolex July 14, 2023 (0 comments)


Pittsburgh, PA--Ed Sheeran proves that fame has not altered his down-to-earth personality, as he indulges fans with free pizza while sporting a remarkably rare Rolex. Despite his successful music career, Sheeran remains nonchalant about the glamor attached to celebrity status, preferring to focus on his passion for music and fulfilling his aspirations.

According to a DMARGE report, Sheeran's fascination with luxury watches is known among his fans. Beneath his modest attire and low-profile demeanor, the pop icon hides a splendid collection of high-end timepieces, some of which are unique. His casual attitude extends to wearing these valuable watches, even during his recent surprise visit to a pizzeria in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The report noted that during his unexpected appearance before a sold-out show, Sheeran delighted fans by showing off his pizza twirling skills while sporting a rare Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 'Paul Newman,' estimated to be worth over AUD 1 million.

Named after the style icon and Hollywood star Paul Newman, these 'exotic dial' Rolex Daytonas are among the rarest and most desired watches globally. 

Given the array of 'Paul Newman' models and glimpses of Sheeran's timepiece, it's challenging to pinpoint the exact model. It's speculated that he owns the highly sought-after ref. 6263, sans the red 'Daytona' text found on other models. This reference routinely fetches prices over AUD 1 million.

Notably, the most expensive Paul Newman model ever sold was a ref. 6239 owned by Newman himself, which fetched an astronomical $17.5 million, ranking it as the third most expensive watch ever sold and the highest-priced Rolex by a substantial margin.

Per the report, Sheeran collaborated with the owner of Caliente Pizza & Draft House, the chosen pizzeria, to make pizzas with a unique sauce featuring his newly released hot sauce, Tingly Ted's. Sheeran distributed 50 free pizzas and concert tickets, with his image gracing the pizza boxes.
