In a recent vlog, Jessy Mendiola shared her seven top fave luxury items, which included a berry-hued Hermès Kelly, a Chanel Coco Handle Flap Bag, (which she sold her classic black Flap Bag to get), an emerald pair of satin Manolo Blahnik flats, and a luxurious steel watch, which caught our eye immediately.
It was a luxury watch from Patek Philippe, a Swiss luxury watch brand founded all the way back in 1839. When Jessy held up the encased watch to the camera, she explained that it wasn't just a stylish must-have, but also a valuable investment in the long run. According to her, she only purchases in pieces that she knows she will use again and again, and that she can eventually hand down to her future children. This watch, she said, was one such piece.
"Ito ay isang heirloom piece," she said. "Pwede mong ipamana sa inyong mga anak, o kaya kung sino man, because this watch will stand the test of the time. Mataas yung value nito kapag tumatagal.
"Magagamit mo siya forever, for everyday wear. And diba yung naka white T-shirt ka lang, simple lang yung damit mo, pero diba? Power ang watch mo!"
Jessy's exact watch is the Nautilus 7118/1A for ladies, a sturdy-bodied steel unit with a deep blue dial. Its overall design has a comparatively more unisex feel than that of other women's watches, which grants it a unique appeal. Despite its solid, heavy appearance, the watch is apparently so well-made that it hang lightly on the wrist."Sobrang lightweight niya. You can't even feel it pag suot mo," Jessy said in her vlog.
As mentioned, the watch's body is made out of steel, while the dial is cut from blue opaline. The minimalist hour markers are in white gold, while the back of the case is in sapphire-crystal. The entire unit is totally water resistant. We found the exact piece on Chrono24, a global watch market, where it was marked at $61,700, or approximately P3.13 million.
The price point comes as no surprise, given that Patek Philippe is considered one of the most luxurious watch brands in the world—some notable clients of the brand include even the likes of Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth.
"I'm just so thankful na nakapag-ipon ako and madaming blessings si Lord na binibigay para makabili ako ng ganitong mga investment," Jessy said.
