Russian 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.

Does he share those watches with his employees, or does Trump have to buy his own watch?
Trump has to use a digital watch, analogs confuse him.

The interesting thing about those expensive watches is that as far as timepieces go, they are absolute garbage. Essentially "luxury" watches are only jewelry anymore, even the ugliest $8 watch at WalMart keeps better time than Rolex.

Putin is an autocratic thug who murders his political opponents and otherwise does as he damned well pleases and no, you can't ask any questions about anything, and someone, anyone, is wondering how Putin can afford a bunch of watches on a Russian president's salary?

That guy is fucking stupid.

These watches aren't about telling time. B)

Plus timepieces are commonly given as gifts to "heads of state" and diplomats. A Rolex is a pretty costly gift for "normals", let alone even more exotic timepieces, but it's common to give them away none the less.

Didn’t the owner of the New England Patriots get a Super Bowl ring swiped by Putin during a visit to Russia? Put in went, “Hey let me see that ring.” “Nice” and he walks out.
