Russian Apple Watch - level 3

Russian Apple Watch - level 3

13-08-2015 15:00

A Russian-owned luxury jewellery brand has launched the ultimate accessory for fans of Vladimir Putin. This $3,000 customised Apple Watch features the name and signature of the Russian President along with engravings of the Moscow skyline and the Russian imperial crown.

“This collection includes three watch models dedicated to Russia's greatest times. Those are the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union, and the current times. We choose key elements from each of these periods’ key symbols and use them in the watch design. For instance, the design of this model is centred around the panorama of the Moscow skyline and the name of President Putin and the artistically reproduced signature of the president. Because in our world we live in, the President of the Russian Federation is a true symbol of our strong independent country, so his image can be used as the real symbol of our times.”

The company has somewhat of a track record in Putin paraphernalia. Last year, the company sold special edition Russian-themed customised iPhones complete with the image of the president's face.

Difficult words: ultimate (the best of its kind), feature (to have), paraphernalia (things which are connected to something, especially those which you think are unnecessary).
