A look at President Vladimir Putin’s watch collection

The New York Times just published a story about the perks available to President Vladimir Putin of Russia. These are detailed in a report put together by the Russian opposition. The items covered in the report include palaces and planes, and also watches.

He has been spotted wearing, amongst other things, a Lange Tourbograph in platinum, as well as a Patek ref. 3974 minute repeater with perpetual calendar. The NYT story cites the value of the watches as US$687,000, which is much too low. The Lange and Patek alone cost well over a million dollars.

The full list of watches can be seen in the PDF report. I am quite sure that is not President Putin’s complete collection because executives from more than one brand have told me that the President owns watches from their brand.
