Vladimir Putin’s Watch Collection Worth 6x His Salary

Vladimir Putin’s watch collection has stirred up a bit of controversy in Eastern Europe. Despite his modest $100,000 salary, the Russian President is able to afford a great collection of luxury watches. Putin’s favorite brands include Patek Philippe, A. Lange & Sohne, Breguet, and Blancpain. One of Putin’s watches – an A. Lange & Sohne Tourbograph – is valued at £322,000.


There’s more to the story behind Putin’s collection, though – check back for another side of the story later today.
