President William Ruto who is known for his style and fashion sense has once again proved that nothing is left to chance on his looks when he steps out for work.
The President who already has a luxury watch collection has launched the newest of his prized possessions, a Portugieser Perpetual Calendar 18 karat Rose Gold Men’s Watch.
According to a spot check by sauce.co.ke the commander in chief has worn the watch on a number of occasions with the most recent being while delivering his New Year’s message at State House on December 31, 2022.
The Swiss-made time piece made by the International Watch Company (IWC) has a price tag of Sh5.3 million in the international market.
Mounted on an 18-karat gold framework, its case consists of a 44.2 mm diameter, 14.9 millimetre, and a see-through sapphire glass back. The watch also has a perpetual calendar with displays for the date, day, month, and year in four digits. The dial harmonises calendar subdials and a moon-phase aperture to a dazzling effect.
Other features include a 7-day power reserve, power reserve display, sapphire glass, arched edge, anti-reflective coating on both sides, pellaton automatic winding and small hacking seconds.
In 2020, Ruto was captured with a Hublot Big Bang Rose Gold Watch- which at the time retailed at around Sh 3 million.
The President has in many occasions thrown away suits and opted for unique tailor made shirts, mostly accompanied by Khaki pants.
