Hello, everyone! Today is Sunday and is supposed to be my rest day. I was so sick yesterday that is why I prefer to just rest. I was supposed to publish an article but my mind and body cannot make it.

Now, I feel much better but am still a bit dizzy and sleepy. I still can manage to make an article, though.

Thank you, dear sponsors!

In this article, I will be giving thoughts about the President's watch which he wore at his inauguration. This watch made the headlines and talked to different social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Even reputable sites and news outlets made a headline out of this.

On his first day in office, Ferdinand Romualdez Marcos Jr., the recently elected president of the Philippines, wore a Patek Philippe timepiece. The Nautilus 5980R-001 in rose gold that Marcos was wearing caught the attention of onlookers who watched enthusiasts due to its sapphire crystal case back and rounded octagonal bezel.

This watch is the ย Patek Philippe Nautilus 5980R-001.

Based on www.watchguynyc.com, this piece of art roughly costs $245,507.00! That is super expensive. When I converted the rate to the Philippine peso, it is Php 13,521,175.27! Of course, the price of the watch can vary depending on its condition, rates, etc.

If I have $245,507.00, will I buy the watch?

Hmm, I am not a watch-lover person. That amount of money can change a bit the way I live. I can buy a car, and a house, and put the money into investments. I really do not like luxury things because for me, if a thing works and delivers its use, I care less about the brand. For example, I can buy a Swatch or a Casio watch with the same purpose and use. I will go with the much cheaper version.

If someone gifted me this watch, will I take it?

Real talk, yes. It is a nice watch to have and to show. It is a piece of art for me and not just a mere watch. I watch a video on YouTube on how meticulous and how detailed they make these kinds of watches. They really have a specific way of making these watches. Also, the materials are really the best of the best materials. Receiving a gift like this is very unlikely to happen, but who knows, right?

Do I think it is a simple watch?

Of course, it is not. Anyone who owns such a piece is very rich and luxurious. I cannot ever afford to buy a mid-range watch, what more of that watch?

Final Thoughts

They said that the first impression lasts. For me, I believe in this saying. I always wear the best blouse or pants for the first meetings. Because it is the first thing that people will remember of you.

Up until now, I remember the first outfit that I wore to my first employer. I was wearing pink long sleeves, denim pants, and brown flats. I put on a little bit of makeup so that I will not look like a zombie, haha! I just want to be presentable and also respect the place.

On the other note...

Yey! It is my 10th month here is read.cash! Wow, it is a long journey! two months from now will be my 1st anniversary here! Wow, time flies so fast! I never imagine that I will go this far. There are struggles on the way but I overcome those, and here I am!


That is it for today. Thank you for reading. I will see you at the next one.

Thank you po! I will continue my journey here. Tama po kayo, that watch alone is an investment. It can double the price sa mga retailers.

Grabe sa pagkakamahal ano, thats one of the reason why other filipinos are complaining why he was elected, kahit pa galing sa pera nila still a very luxurious thing to present infront of all the filipinos who are in poverty stage

Dami nga issue about jan sa watch ni mr. President dzaiii hahaha pero ako feeling ko naman di nila yan nakaw. Well sana tlga ung totoong facts and reality sa marcos regime eh malaman ng lahat. Alam ko naman na may bad sides ung pamumuno ng father niya pero sana maturo lahat sa schools.

Everyone is very critical to the Marcos Family right now. Ineexpect ko na yan na may mga issue hanggang sa mga pananamit nila. For me, ang importante ay dapat magampanan niya yung mga tunggkuling niya.
