At just 19 years old, Kylie Jenner may be the youngest member of the Forbes’ highest paid celebrities list, but she certainly has a very grown up bank account. And similar to other members of the Kardashian clan, she has an expensive taste in watches and jewelry. To accompany her stacks of Cartier Love bracelets, Jenner often wears one of her Rolex Day-Date President watches. She has a couple of them including a full diamond bezel Rolex President and a “subtler” solid gold Day-Date with the iconic fluted bezel.

And this isn’t just any standard Sub either, but a special gift from his friend and fellow comedian, Chris Rock. As the story goes, Rock gifted a Submariner to C.K. and Tina Fey after they helped him with a script. The best part? The Rolex watch is apparently engraved with “Thanks for your help, motherf%*ker.”
