Actor Jeremy Piven has walked away from the set of hit TV series Entourage with a treasured memento – the pricey watch worn by his talent agent character Ari Gold.
The popular drama’s eighth and final season is currently airing and Piven reveals creator Doug Ellin allowed him to keep one of his character’s most extravagant props – a gold Audemars Piguet timepiece gifted to Gold by his boss during season five.

He tells WENN, “Doug was kind enough to let me walk away with this fine watch that Ari Gold wore for a number of years. And it’s really, really beautiful.”

But Piven’s co-star Kevin Connelly, who played Eric ‘E’ Murphy, decided upon a more sentimental souvenir.

He says, “I took my ‘E’ paperweight off my desk. Now I have it at my house.”
