WRISTSPOTTING : Chechen-style


(Photo from RBC)

In case you haven’t had enough of Russians and expensive watches, the folks at Russian website RBC have helpfully put together a gallery that they have called ‘Switzerland vs Russia’, with photos of officials/ politicians/ heads of state-owned companies and their watches at this link.

Perhaps the most unexpected match-up is that of Ramzan Kadyrov, the head of the Chechen Republic, who is seen wearing no less than a Greubel Forsey Tourbillon 24 Secondes Contemporain Platinum. He has previously been spotted wearing a Bovet of some description.

What other brands make an appearance? Rolex, Breguet (naturally), Chanel, ToyWatch, Graham, Patek Philippe, Blancpain, Romain Jerome, Dubey & Schaldenbrand, Glashutte Original, Sturmanskie, Panerai, Longines, ‘Rocket’ and yes, even an Apple watch.

The website is in Russian, but if you stick the URL into Google Translate/ hit this link, you can read the details of each politician, their watch and, naturally, their income status…

Meanwhile, here is the Chechen President’s Wikipedia page and some recent articles about President Kadyrov.
