The billionaire, who’s now being referred to as Papa Gelato on Instagram thanks to a viral video of himself and his daughter, DJ Cuppy where they went to Italy for an hour just to get Ice-cream, gelato, said he stopped putting on wristwatches three years ago as technology ended its necessity.

A follower had asked him,

Hello sir, quick question I noticed you don’t wear wristwatch, why is that if I may ask sir?

To which the billionaire responded,

I started wearing a watch when I was 12 years old and I stopped 3 years ago. Technology has ended our necessity for the archaic wristwatch. Less is more
