Derrick Monasterio Let His Diamond-Covered Rolex Do the Talking at the GMA Thanksgiving Gala

If there ever was an occasion for an iced-out watch, this is it.

Rolexes are a red carpet staple. We expect to see a bunch of the Swiss watchmaker's creations in events that call for formal dressing—and, the GMA Thanksgiving Gala was no different. The evening was a great night for all kinds of watches. One that really caught our eye, though, was securely wrapped around Derrick Monasterio's wrist.

The actor turned out in a Ryan Chris suit and Salvatore Ferragamo shoes—styled by Ivor Jullian—but it's the finer details that really took his look to the next level. In this case, it was a blinding Rolex watch. If you look closely, you'll see what looks like a Rolex GMT-Master II with a diamond wave dial. As far as we know, only one watch in existence has the same features: the GMT Ice.

Known as the most expensive watch Rolex has ever offered to the public, the GMT Ice features 18-karat white gold and 30 carats of white diamonds. The watch, which retailed for $485,350 (P26.8 million), is pretty rare, too, considering eagle-eyed enthusiasts have only spotted it on Cristiano Ronaldo and Scott Disick. We might be wrong about Monasterio's Rolex… but, either way, the diamonds are still plentiful on his watch.

It's an over-the-top pick, for sure. But, if there ever was an occasion for an iced-out watch, the GMA Thanksgiving Gala is it.
