Chelsea's David Luiz splashes the cash on title winning gifts for teammates

Chelsea's David Luiz splashes the cash on title winning gifts for teammates

But it seems that for today's elite that would be far too restrained.

DAVID LUIZ has been celebrating Chelsea's title win in style by splashing out over £1million on luxury wrist bracelets that act as keys which can open cars and wine cellars.

They are billed as the "ultimate status symbol for supercar owners" and allow the driver to open the vehicle and start the engine without the needless kerfuffle of fishing keys out of a pocket and groping for the ignition.

The Blues stormed to the top of the Premier League under Antonio Conte in December after winning 13 games in a row and never looked back.

So the 30-year-old purchased 30 wrist-worn Senturion supercar keys which were handed out to players at Chelsea's Cobham training base on Friday (19 May). As the key makers say: "Why carry around a auto key when you can wear it on your wrist?"

According to a report on the Daily Mail, each player has their name engraved in the 18-carat handcrafted rose gold with 198 black diamonds which had an inscription "God is great".

The extra-special key Luiz gave Chelsea's billionaire owner Roman Abramovich was made from parts of a 4.9 billion year old meteorite.

Senturion, who call their products "the most unique collectors item in the world", normally only produce each series of their keys in limited editions of seven but made a special exception for Luiz.

The luxury wrist wear is seen as a status symbol with most most keys more expensive than the cars themselves, with prices starting at £38,000 and reaching six figures.

In 2012 Chelsea legend Didier Drogba marked the club winning their first Champions League trophy by paying around £800,000 for a set of exclusive rings to commemorate Chelsea's Champions League victory.
