Top 5 Gangsters & Their Watches – Rolex, Patek Philippe, Hamilton & Bulova

On the Urban Gentry channel we often look at movies, celebrities, positive role models, and the watches they choose to wear. Today we turn to the dark side as we look at the top five gangsters of all time and what their choice of watch reveals about them.

In this episode I share Bugsy Siegel’s stunning Bulova and the Patek Philippe that Lucky Luciano gave to fellow boss Joseph Bonanno who was the main inspiration for The Godfather books and movies. We also look at a very special Hamilton timepiece used by John Dillinger to time his robberies, a super classy Rolex that belonged to mobster don Al Capone, and finally, a Rolex in a completely opposite style owned by the king of coke, Pablo Escobar.
