Paul Salas Shares the Expensive Watch Godfather Dingdong Dantes Gave Him
- Paul Sales has revealed the most memorable gifts Dingdong Dantes gave to him as a godfather.
- He remembers the first gift which was a Batman toy figure when he was seven years old.
- The actor was in disbelief when Dantes recently gave him a more expensive gift.
Apart from being relatives, Dingdong Dantes is also the godfather of actor Paul Salas. In a Zoom session with PEP.ph, the actor revealed how Dantes is as a godfather, as well as the most memorable gifts that he's received from the actor.
Salas replied, "Unang-una, yung Batman toy figure. Siguro mga seven years old po ako noon. 'Tapos, recently lang...no’ng Christmas, binigay niya sa akin yung isa sa mga relo niya."
He continued, "Biniro ko lang siya, sabi ko, 'Ang ganda niyan, Ninong. Baka naman—ay, nakakahiya, wag pala.'" He was surprised when Dantes, who is known for collecting expensive watches, gifted him the pricey watch for Christmas.
"'Tapos the next day, noong nasa Christmas party kami ng Descendants of the Sun, sinabi niya sa pinsan niya na kasama niya palagi, 'O, bigay mo na ang relo nito. Akala ko nagbibiro lang, pero noong binigay sa akin, hindi ako makapaniwala na binigay niya sa akin. So yun ang last gift niya, noong Christmas," he said.
The watch in question comes from Creux Automatiq which only has two models, the Diamondback and Ghost. According to aBlogtoWatch, only 100 production pieces are released under each model from the Ghost series.
Currently, aside from the Explore model—which has a price of $1,550 (approximately P78,000)—all the other models are sold out. The specific model that Dantes gave to Salas is the Ghost Shadow Carbon CA-02 which costs $2,750 (approximately P134,000).

According to Salas, "Palagi rin po niyang sinusuot yung watch na yun. At gusto ko rin bumili ng watch na yun kasi, palagi niyang sinusuot. Kaso, medyo pricey nga. Biniro ko na lang siya na ganun at binigay niya sa akin."
