Mr. T GOLD Jewelry price & weight




Mr. T gold jewelry, chains, rings, and bracelets was worth about $125,000 and weigh 6.25 pounds.



In January 1983 when the A-Team first went on the air, Mr. T's approximate 100 ounces (6.25 pounds) of gold was worth $43,316.

Price of Gold raw material by troy ounce (31.1 gr/1.1 standard oz.)
  • Cost of gold in 1983: $424/troy ounce
  • 2008 inflation adj. cost: $914/troy ounce
  • Actual 2008 cost: $923/troy ounce
It's now said to be worth $123,480 - an increase of 185% in value, as of 2010.



Calculating the Cost of Gold Jewelry, Is There a Rule of Thumb?



Some people even speculated that Mr. T had an influence on Gold price fluctuation.







Mr T was a role model for the children
Mr. T was a hero and a manly role model for the children.
Not a sissy like today's heroes for children.




Mr. T has some explanation for everything he wears. 

  • He bought his first gold chain in 1977 which cost him $129.
  • He uses the diamond and gold Rolex he bought for $8,000 cash at a Federal Marshal's auction to keep the time (although the date does not seem to work). 
  • He eats his meals with the huge gold eating utensils around his neck.
  • He takes his drink from a gold and diamond goblet, the idea for which he got from the Pope. 






Mr. T explains his taste for Gold:
The reason why I wear gold: I wear gold for three reasons. 
  1. One, when Jesus was born, three wise men came from the east, one brought frankenscence, one brought myrrh, the other one brought gold. 
  2. The second reason I wear gold is I can afford it. 
  3. The third reason I wear it, it's symbolic of my African heritage. When my ancestors came from Africa, they were shackled by our neck, our wrists and our ankles in steel chains. I've turned those steel chains into gold to symbolize the fact that I'm still a slave, only my price tag is higher.




Why does Mr T wears gold chains?




Mr. T stopped wearing gold chains in 2005 because he thought it would be an insult to the people who lost everything after Hurricane Katrina.

Sorry to say that but Mr. T without bling is not Mr. T anymore.

If you don't have Mr. T deep pocket.

You can at least buy yourself a Mr.T jewelry starter kit

How to Get Rich Like a Rothschild


You probably know that the Trillionaire Rothschild International Banking Dynasty controls the world.
The Rothschilds are rumored to be worth as much as 500 TRILLION dollars US mostly held in gold bullion.

But how do they became so ungodly fuckin' rich? 
With Gold also called The Secret Currency.


Thanks to Gold the World’s Wealthiest Families continued to make shitloads of money even stocks, bonds and real estate are losing value.
And yes, yours truly has a good portion of his wealth stored off-shore in Swiss banks. It is 100% legal!
If it's good for me and the Rothschild Family it must be great for you!




No, you don't need to be a Trillionaire like us to invest in Gold bullions. Anybody can invest in Gold, safely and legally.

As you can see with the charts below, Gold is the safest bet you can get.

My Ideal Wrist Watch

My ideal wrist watch must reflect my personality.
My ideal wrist watch must be Big, Vulgar, Flashy, and Expensive...
Just like me!

But to make a real impact...
I need a fuckin' rolex!

After all I'm a Rolex Romeo too!
 


My ideal wrist watch needs 5 things:

1- Rolex
2- Oversized
3- Gold
4- Diamonds
5- Personalized



ROLEX
Must be a Rolex since Rolex is the only watch name associated with big money in the collective mind of people.  Everybody know the Rolex and what it is.  EVERYBODY know that Rolex are the watches of the big shots.  The common man don't give a damn about the blank looking Patek Philippe.  The common man don't even know what Patek Philippe is.  If you ask him he will probably tell you that Patek Philippe is a law firm. 

So Rolex is the name to go if you want to show off.  And yes, I want to show off. 

 NWA wrestling world champion Ric Flair was always bragging about his Rolex watch.


Party animal and 70 Million dollar man Charlie Sheen's $700,000 very rare vintage Patek Philippe Ref. 2438/1 Watch 37mm wide in gold.  Too small and looks boring to me!  Yes, I know...  I'd just said a sacrilege!  Sorry!



OVERSIZED
My watch must be large, must be big, must be oversized.  Anything under 50 mm is too small for me.  But unfortunately, Rolex doesn't produce oversized watches?  The Yachtmaster II is 42 mm and the DSSD is 43 mm.  And I think there is an oversize DayDate II out there at 41 mm.  I've seen a Rolex Daytona model #  1116505-BKSO at 40 mm.  Problem, problem!  No, one a minute, the Deepsea Challenge 2012 is 51.4 mm.  Yes sir!  That's perfect for me.  The name and the size but can I get it in gold and diamonds?

Rolex Deepsea Challenge 2012  51 mm
approximately cost € 20-25.000
This watch looks indestructible!

GOLD
Yes, must be gold.  Since platinum will easily be confused for stainless steel.  So I'm yellow gold all the way.


Rolex Yachtmaster II 18k Gold
(43 mm case)


DIAMONDS
For sure, I like diamonds, I love diamonds.  So my watch need to be covered in diamonds.  Nothing is flashier than diamonds.



Rolex GMT MASTER II Black Automatic 18kt Yellow Gold Oyster Mens Watch
18kt yellow with a total of 99 diamonds (40 mm case)


Rolex Oyster Perpetual 18k Vintage Genuine Man Watch 1.32 Ct Diamonds
(30.5 mm case = too small for me)




PERSONALIZED
I know this one will scandalise all the watch purists out there.  I would like that my wrist watch have a personalised touch.  What about 'PYGOD' inscripted on both side of the bracelet.

JR Ewing's "Texas Timex", a Rolex with a highly customized monogrammed "J.R." bracelet, is a perfect exemple of what my ideal watch could look like.



Since Rolex doesn't produce over 50 mm watches in gold and diamonds.  I will stick to my current meticulously chosen wrist watch.



My beloved wrist watch is Big, Flashy, Vulgar and Expensive... 
Just like me!

Drug Lord wrist watch jewelry

Ever wonder what a billionaire drug lord wear as a wrist watch?
Just watch the image below.



Here are some really expensive bling, the you can see two Hublot Big Bangs, a DeWitt, a Cartier, a Breitling, a Corum Golden Bridge, a Panerai for Ferrari, and a  Jacob & Co. in that tray.  I think there is even one leopard-skin rolex somewhere.  Anything Diamond Bezeled and Ostentatious is fine for the wealthy drug dealer!


Rolex Daytona Leopard
retail price: $60,000



Get an eyeful of this!

That's my view of happiness.  But ouups!!  Prison and a bullet in your head are huge downsides.
