Mexico Finally sells “Titanic Watch” Seized from El Coss

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat thank you LeChef from DDG


This Sunday, after several years of it being among the goods seized from narcos, the Government of Mexico was able to auction the watch found made with remains of the Titanic that was taken from the bloody narco Jorge Eduardo Costilla Sánchez, former leader of the Gulf Cartel.

The watch was designed by the  Swiss house Romain Jerome that is recognized among all those fine watch collectors . The reason is simple, it has a unique concept that is summed up in four words: «DNA of famous legends».

The jewels of this house really are part of the story because they are inspired by it and are made with unique materials and the Titanic DNA is an example of this, as they are watches that contain parts of the ship that sank in 1912 and fused it with the steel with which they made the new gold and platinum relics.


Carbon from the Titanic pieces was also used to create the dial painting and the design of the hands is inspired by the anchor of the ocean liner. The result was a limited edition of 2,012 pieces whose value ranged from 90,000 pesos to 2,000,000 and had a special diamond-encrusted model.  

One of those special watches came to the hands of drug trafficker  Jorge Eduardo Costilla Sánchez, "El Coss," who at one time was the top leader of the Gulf Cartel after Osiel Cárdenas was captured.

During his time at the head of the criminal group he commanded drug trafficking, kidnapping, human trafficking and money laundering. Among the bloodiest events attributed to him, the murder of Rodolfo Torre Cantú, candidate for the governorship of Tamaulipas, stands out.

El Coss
According to an investigation made by the former Attorney General's Office (PGR) and the Administration for Drug Control (DEA), it was " El Coss" who ordered the murder after the candidate allegedly refused to protect the investments that allowed money laundering  coming from the cartel.

In September 2012, the Mexican narco was arrested by members of the navy in Tamaulipas. On the day of his capture, the authorities secured; two gold chains; a ring; a fang-shaped pendant; two coins, one of them in reference to John Paul II; and two gold-plated firearms; one inlaid with diamonds and another adorned with an eagle.

Agents also secured 14 luxury watches, including a Rolex, a Ulysse and a Montblanc. However, on that occasion the star artifact was the watch of the Titanic-ADN collection.

It took the Mexican government seven years to auction off the seized watch. However, Sunday, July 28, the Property Administration and Disposal Service (SAE) auctioned 148 pieces of jewelry; among them the precious watch with remains of the Titanic.

The Executive Director of commercialization of goods and real estate of the SAE informed that the Romain Jerome men's watch had been manufactured with extruded metal from the sunken ship and had a titanium steel case and a black rubber pulse with 64 embedded diamonds. It was sold for almost 200,000 pesos. [only 10,360 USD]

    3. In order to understand what AMLO has done for "MEXICO" you'd have to either live there or be immersed in his daily early morning news conferences. Because the main U.S. media only channels in the bad and negativity of Mexico!!

    4. 6:49 he's done a handful of things during his 6 months in office. For starters he has put confiscated items up for auction and says he will give that money back to poor communities. Whether he follows through or not is the real question. I like to think he will but only time will tell. He's confiscated several large narco properties and plans to turn them into schools and universities. Again, only time will tell if he is sincere or not. He stopped the construction of the new airport in Mexico city, which makes absolute sense. Why build a new airport over a dry lake when you already have a perfectly functioning airport. He supposedly cut the outrageous salaries of former Mexican presidents and the only one who complained was Vicente fox. From my understanding and I could be wrong, he has lowered the theft of gasoline from something like 500 incidents a month to 40 incidents a month and is in the process of building something like 5 or 6 new oil refineries. As 9:30 mentioned, the U.S media outlets won't mention that.

    6. 9:24 you remind me of Alejandro Hope, former member of Mexican intelligence CISEN (that replaced corrupt drug trafficking CIA puppet DFS) now working for Francisco javier garcia cabeza de cagadas de vacas, the new governor of Tamaulipas, but who has never found any crime like terrorism of state from any of the governments he has served, he dares criticize AMLO LIKE A HUNGRY Chayotero, he tried to infiltrate BB under his own name, but quit real soon without ever answering charges of his own corruption.
      Alejandro hope now "writes hit pieces criticizing everything AMLO or durazo do, like he could do better but won't, even in far away tamaulipas.

  7. Mexican government is so corrupt that I bet they planed that auction to suit them. Wouldn't put it past them if the auction was within those sell outs and they each claimed something from there to buy but at a fixed price.. $200,000 pesos for more than half a million of merchandise GTFO
