He Bought Two Ultra-Expensive Gold Apple Watches for The Dog!
The guy who bought two ultra-expensive gold Apple watches for his dog is the son of China’s richest man.
It now seems more legit, doesn’t it? But there is nothing we wouldn’t do for our furry friends. After all, there is a luxurious dog collar and many other pet goodies for the rich and famous’ cute little friends.
For most of us, gold Apple watch that is selling for around $10k is an unobtainable dream, but for this guy is something common.
Because he is the son of China’s richest man, he bought two of them. But not for him, but for his furry friend: the dog.
As first reported by Shanghaiist, Wang Sicong, son of property titan Wang Jianlin, has posted photos online of his dog kitted out in some high-end Cupertino bling.
Wang Sicong’s dog has its own popular account on a Chinese social media site called Weibo.
The dog is wearing the rose gold Apple Watch Edition with a white flouroelastimer band, and it appears to be the 42mm model, which sells for 88,000 RMB (for one) in China, priced at £9,500 in the UK, and $12,000 in the US.
The photos also had a caption which Shanghaist translates as: “I have new watches! I’m supposed to have four watches since I have four long legs. But that seems too tuhao [rich and vulgar] so I kept it down to two, which totally fits my status. Do you have one?”
Wang Sicong’s father, Wang Jianlin, is chairman of the Dalian Wanda Group, the largest real estate developer in China, and the richest man on the mainland.
The 26-year-old Wang Sicong is a director at the family-owned firm as well as a prominent figure on Chinese social media, according to Want China Times.
But despite his father’s$14, 1 billion net worth, there’s still one Apple Watch Wang Sicong can’t get his hands on.
Kanye West, Beyoncé and Karl Lagerfeld are among the lucky few celebs to own a gold link bracelet Apple Watch Edition.
Not advertised anywhere on Apple’s website, it is apparently given out only to the most prestigious A-Listers — proof that there are still some things that money can’t buy.
Do you have one? Would you like to? What’s your opinion about the matter? And about the Apple Watch in general? Care to share them with us?
