Gretchen Barretto and her Rolex watches

Gretchen Barretto on her expensive watches and jewelry: "When I see something and it catches my attention, and I know I cannot sleep tonight without that piece, I call that investment."


Gretchen Barretto was among the celebrities who openly supported Rodrigo Duterte's candidacy for president.

On Instagram, she posted two photos of her wrist wearing the ballers of Duterte and her bet for vice president, Bongbong Marcos.

But her followers did not miss her Rolex watches.

The world-famous brand is her favorite. In fact, the very first watch she purchased was a two-tone Rolex.

In a previous interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), she recounted, "Yun gives-gives ko binili...

"Yung pinaka-una, yun talaga, that was my dream.

"Every time may nakikitaan akong ganun, my eyes would be forever doon na naka-focus, and I said, 'I wanna get that one day.'

"I was only able to fully pay that in a year."

Now here are two of the many Rolex watches she has in her collection.

Rolex Datejust

It has a pave set diamond dial, three-part case in 18k white gold, an aperture for date, and what looked like 11 sapphire markers.

The one being sold by Christie's is 31mm, circa 1991, and has a diamond President bracelet.

Its estimated price is $25,860 or P1,213,364.

Rolex Yacht-Master II

According to the brand's website, it was designed to meet the needs of professional sailors.

Its regatta chronograph features the world's "first programmable countdown with a mechanical memory."

It has a 90-degree rotatable blue ceramic ring command bezel, in 18K yellow-gold case, and Oyster-lock bracelet.

Online sites are presently selling the brand-new 44-mm timepiece at $43,550 or P2,043,387.

In the same interview, she called her expensive watches and jewelry as "investments."

"When I see something and it catches my attention, and I know I cannot sleep tonight without that piece, I call that investment.

"That’s how I look at it, I justify it, not only with jewelry but with anything in life."
