Zsa Zsa Padilla showed to her Instagram followers the Breitling watch she gave Dolphy, the late "King of Comedy."


Zsa Zsa Padilla was hit by a wave of nostalgia after rediscovering an expensive watch, which she gave her late partner "King of Comedy" Dolphy Quizon.

Posting a photo of a Breitling watch on her Instagram account on Monday, November 5, she recalled some of her fondest memories about it.

She wrote, "I’ve kept this watch for sentimental reasons.

"I gave this to Dolphy several years ago and every time he’d wear it, it wouldn’t tell the right time and he had to set it.

"He wouldn’t wear it much (he had very little patience for trivial things), so I started borrowing it until I asked if I could just have it back!

"He just smiled and agreed. I think I loved the design more than he did."

Zsa Zsa decided to keep the watch and have it repaired since it's the only piece of jewelry she shared with Dolphy.

She continued, "We almost had the same wrist size, so I didn’t need to change the strap.

"I had it repaired recently and almost forgot about it until I received a text.

"I’m so happy it looks brand new again! Anyhow, just wanted to let you know that I am also sentimental like that.

"It’s the only piece of jewelry that we have 'shared.'"

I’ve kept this watch for sentimental reasons. I gave this to Dolphy several years ago and every time he’d wear it, it wouldn’t tell the right time and he had to set it. He wouldn’t wear it much (he had very little patience for trivial things), so I started borrowing it until I asked if I could just have it back! He just smiled and agreed. I think I loved the design more than he did. We almost had the same wrist size, so I didn’t need to change the strap. I had it repaired recently and almost forgot about it until I received a text.
