"Vladimir Putin has a sense of quality. He wore an exclusive swiss wristwatch the day he signed the decision to steal the Crimea from Ukraine and to incorporate the peninsula into Russia."
"the Clock was off the mark Blancpain. Okay, the clock is not supermärkvärdigt, it costs around 110 000 sek, not much among the billionaires and wealthy collectors. But Putin is officially not stony. He is a former spy, now a politician, paid by the Russian state, which is poor in everything except military spending."
"Putin's official salary is equivalent to 1.4 million, but he lives the life of a mångmiljardär."
"the World is full of klocknördar. Online you can read about the watches you know that Putin has, among other things, expensive brands such as Breguet, Patek Philippe and IWC."
"The finest is an A. Lange & Söhne, a German out of the worth about five million."
"the Whole of Putin's collection estimated to be worth around the equivalent of seven million. It is those watches that geeks and korruptionsbekämpare seen on the Russian president's wrist. He can of course take many more."
"– Putin does not seem to have eaten or drunk in six years to be able to build up this collection, " said Boris Nemtsov, a Russian opposition politician who particularly interested in the regime's corruption."
"Someone shot him on the open street, in the shadow of the Kremlin, in February 2015."
"Especially the political leaders who are not democratically elected like small evidence of its success. Cuba's communist leader Fidel Castro was weak for Omega, the renowned swiss lyxmärket. He took at least four pieces. He thought so much about the Rolex that he sometimes had two in the left arm, a dykarur and a Day–Date in gold, a from that shows the date and day."
"Say the bells corresponded to ten or fifteen cuban years' salary. Or twenty. Where did the communist leader money?"
"Such questions, there was no one who could ask."
"the Bells is a small but not insignificant indicator of the state of the world. The ticking up a story about our time, tick tock: the thieves of time."
"yes, there are lots of honest and decent clock enthusiasts. I bought a Rolex when I got a permanent job in 1983. The cost of a button the monthly salary for a factory worker. I know a whole bunch of journalists who wear Rolex. It is a watch, car dealers, dictators and tough reporters."
"Our time watch tells so much more. There is no moderation on how expensive and complicated it is for those who can pay. The swiss watch industry celebrates the triumphs because it is a group of people with extremely a lot of money to spend."
"I forgot to mention that Vladimir Putin's personal spokesman Dmitry Peskov wore a watch worth over six million dollars when he married. Against them is, therefore, a civil servant."
"The rich and powerful have always built monuments to themselves. The corrupt resist not the temptation to boast. In a time when everything is volatile and everything is in the cloud in our computers are an expensive and completely unnecessary watch the most visible proof of success."
"here put Vladimir Putin in the standard. Once he threw a Blancpain in the wet cement before the rolling cameras."
"So acting an arrogant prince before the congregation."
"Different calculations" says that Putin during his time as president, built up a hidden fortune of 40 to 200 billion dollars."
"The swiss watchmaker Vacheron Constantin has created the world's most advanced mechanical movement. It is a pocket watch with gears and springs ticking away. It consists of 2800 parts and has 57 features, many breakneck complicated, for example, when the sun goes up and down in the klockägarens hometown."
"Three of Vacheron constantin's mästerurmakare worked with it for eight years. The company did not say the price with it is said to have remained at around 50 million."
