Video in linkRussian President Vladimir Putin apparently has a soft spot for luxury watches, but some are wondering why the timepieces haven’t been hard on his wallet.
Putin’s collection of pricey wristwatches, are worth nearly $700,000 – about six times his official annual salary of 3,661,765 rubles, or about $115,000.. The Russian Opposition group Solidarity produced a video that questioned how Putin could afford such a lavish collection, suggesting this was evidence of government fraud.
The video also shows Putin wearing a $60,000 Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar an $18,000 Patek Philippe Calatrava, a Breguet Marine worth $15,000, a $10,000 Blancpain Leman Flyback, and a Blancpain Leman Aqua Lung Grande Date worth around $10,500.
