Ranveer Singh Wore A Watch So Rare & Exclusive, Even India�s 1% Couldn�t Buy It

Indian film stars and cricketers wearing insanely expensive watches isnât exactly anything new. Quirky Patek Phillipes, zany Audemars Piguets, Rolexes with cases made of gold - these have, somehow, become the norm for Bollywood if they want to be taken seriously by Indian horologists.

Having said that, every once in a while, someone, wears something so exquisite, that we just have to take a step back and take a good hard look. This time around, it was Ranveer Singh, who wore a watch so rare and exclusive, that even the 1 per cent-ers in India couldnât buy one.

Ranveer was recently spotted outside the Mumbai airport with Deepika Padukone, wearing a rather simplistic and basic outfit. However, with Ranveer being Ranveer, there was bound to be a quirky element with that as well.

The light washed denim jeans that Ranveerâs wearing has a belt of sorts thatâs incredibly long, much like the one that Aparshakti wore. The manner the belt hangs out in a quirky manner from the side is quintessentially Ranveer.

However, as we said, it was his watch that caught our eye. Given that Ranveer endorses Franck Muller, the Geneva-based watchmakers, seeing wearing a piece from them, shouldnât be that surprising.

But this time around, Ranveer was spotted wearing their one of their rarest timepieces. Ranveer is wearing the Franck Muller Vanguard Yachting Watch Number 64716. What makes this watch so exclusive and rare, is the fact that the case, apart from being made of white gold, is also covered in tiny diamonds. Even the numbers on the dial are covered in diamonds.

Speaking of the dial, it is again made of precious metal and has a glossy finish to it. The band of the watch is made using finely quilted leather, which gives it an exquisite appeal. 

As for the technical aspects, it is a classic piece from Franck Mullerâs Yachting series. With a fair number of complications, the watch is a highly coveted collectorâs piece and already has a cult status among ardent horologists.

The reason why we say that even Indiaâs top one per cent couldnât buy one even if they wanted to, is again because of rarity. Some experts say that the watch is worth somewhere in the ballpark of $300,000, which converts to about Rs 2.1 crores.

However, considering how rare the watch actually is, and how difficult it gradually becomes to get your hands on legacy pieces as time flies by, if you were to try and buy this piece today, you would have to shell out at least Rs 2.6 crores. Add to that your regular import duties and taxes, and youâre looking at a figure thatâs ridiculously high. 

Almost as if it would cost you the Earth, all your bodily fluids, kidneys, lungs, and then some more. If you find someone who is willing to sell you this piece, that is.

Seriously, this just goes on to show that Ranveerâs operating in a different reality altogether.
