Entertainment: Shah Rukh Khan was spotted wearing a watch worth Rs 4.9 crore, fans asked 'what future does this tell?'
Shah Rukh is one of the richest film personalities on the planet and is currently among the top 3 richest actors. So, it is no surprise that they have some of the best and most expensive accessories. But still, fans were surprised when they came to know how much Shahrukh's wristwatch cost.
Shah Rukh has often been spotted wearing Audemars Piguet watches on various outings. A photo of him wearing the blue Ceramic AP Perpetual Calendar watch was posted on Twitter on Tuesday. A Twitter user claimed that the watch worn by Shah Rukh in the picture is worth Rs 4.75 crore. It was released in August last year.
According to the website Luxury Watches USA, the price of the exclusive luxury timepiece is actually around Rs 4.9 crore ($600,000). It is currently considered to be one of the most expensive timepieces in the world. According to the manufacturers, ceramic finishing is done in the same way as any precious metal. The calendar of the watch is so accurate that it does not need to be adjusted even in leap years. 18-carat gold has been used on the hands and index finger of the watch. Responding to this, a fan wrote, "What future does this tell?"
Shahrukh is known for his love for expensive watches. The actor paid a customs duty of Rs 6.8 lakh last year for six luxury watches worth Rs 18 lakh as he and his partner reached Mumbai on a chartered flight from Dubai.
The actor owns several other expensive luxury watches including Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5968A (Rs 38 lakh), Rolex Cosmograph Daytona (Rs 12 lakh), and TAG Heuer Monaco Sixty Nine (Rs 5 lakh). He also owns another AP watch – Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Blue Chronograph in White Dial, which costs Rs 18 lakh.
The actor is currently awaiting the release of his comeback film Pathan. The film, which also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, will hit the screens on January 25. This is Shah Rukh's first release in a lead role since 2018.
