Somehow Oliver Stone was granted access for multiple, filmed interviews with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the last two years. You may remember Stone as the director of such films as Platoon, JFK, Wall Street, and Natural Born Killers; all fine watch movies. The result was a 4-part series for Showtime called The Putin Interviews. A few times the former KGB agent waved his hand and we’d get a glimpse of what the President of Russia wears on his wrist. Finally, in part 4, we got a nice view of the IWC he was wearing.[envira-gallery id=”375″]
It’s an IWC 3265 Pilot Mark XVII. Off the shelf $4,000 watch. It’s a far cry from that seemingly unworn Patek Philippe 5208P Grand Complication that allegedly belonged to Putin, which auctioned off for $1.2million in Monaco last July.
Random Thought: doesn’t “Putin’s Patek” sound like a great band name?
