A third luxury watch has surfaced, this time a Rolex worth around 2 million baht – as aides stick to that tale of ‘left in the will of a dead friend’.
Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwon has been spotted wearing another luxury watch, intensifying questions over the government’s “big brother” asset scandal.
A photo of Gen Prawit wearing another luxury watch was shared online after the Facebook page CSI LA posted the image on its page, saying the watch is likely to be a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Ice Blue Dial Platinum men’s watch which costs between 1.9-2.4 million baht.
The page admin said a follower sent the photo to him. The price of the watch is 1.9 million baht if it is brought through Amazon.com, he said. The price at the gold-standard Jomashop.com is $61,500, or exactly 2 million baht.
It was reported the photo, which originally appeared on Matichon Weekly Online, was taken on Feb 14 when Gen Prawit was giving an interview at the Defence Ministry.
On Friday, political activist Srisuwan Janya petitioned the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) to examine more evidence in connection with Gen Prawit’s possession of a second Richard Mille watch. His move came after a photo of Gen Prawit wearing the watch went viral on social media. CSI LA page expects the watch is an RM 30 model which costs about 4 million baht.
