Photos: Dog In China Spotted Wearing Two Gold Apple Watches Worth $12,000


A Siberian Husky has upstaged Katy Perry, Beyoncé and even Jay Z by sporting not one, but two gold Apple Watches on its front paws. The dog, known by his name, Wang Ke on Chinese social media, belongs to Wang Sicong, the son of Chinese billionaire, Wang Jialin, reported TIME magazine.

Wang Jianlin has an estimated wealth of $38.6 billion, and heads Dalian Wanda Group, China’s largest real estate developer. The gold Apple Watches range from $11,000 to $17,000 in price. Digital Trends reported the models fastened to Wang Ke’s front legs cost more than $12,000 each.

Photos of the dog wearing the latest technology from Apple appeared Monday on Weibo, China’s answer to social networking platform Twitter. Captions that accompanied the photos read in translation, “I have new watches! I’m supposed to have four watches since I have four long legs. But that seems too uncouth so I kept it down to two, which totally fits my status. Do you have one?”

In early May, MarketWatch reported Wang Jianlin surpassed Alibaba founder, Jack Ma and Hong Kong tycoon Li Ka-shing to become the richest person in Asia, with his net worth of $38.6 billion, according to Bloomberg News rankings.
