The Son Of One Of China's Richest Men Bought His Dog Two Apple Watches


If you still haven't been able to get your hands (wrists?) on an Apple Watch, here's a bit of news to make you feel even worse about yourself. The son of one of China's richest men reportedly bought his dog two Apple Watches. Yes, that means a dog has two more Apple Watches than you do.

Wang Sicong, the son of Chinese real estate magnate Wang Jianlin, posted some photos of his husky wearing a gold Apple Watch on each of his front legs on the Chinese social media site Weibo, Shanghaiist first reported. Well, the photos were actually posted to his dog's profile on Weibo, but would you really expect anything less from a canine that's rocking two Apple Watches?

Wang's dog seems to be wearing two 18-karat rose gold Apple Watches with white sport bands. These run for 74,800 or 88,800 RMB in China or for $10,000 or $12,000 in the United States, depending on the size of the smartwatch.

Shanghaiist reports that the photos of the husky wearing the Apple Watches came with the caption, "I have new watches! I'm supposed to have four watches since I have four long legs. But that seems too tuhao so I kept it down to two, which totally fits my status. Do you have one?"

"Tuhao" is Chinese slang for "crass rich," better known as "nouveau riche," in case you were wondering. And no, Wang, putting an Apple Watch on each one of your dog's four legs isn't tuhao; giving your dog any Apple Watches when all he can do is sniff and lick them is tuhao.

This isn't the first time Wang's dog has been more fabulous than you. The husky has also been seen with a pink Fendi bag around his neck, and he only drinks Fiji water, according to The New York Daily News.

Naturally, many Weibo users weren't too thrilled with Wang's over-the-top display of wealth, according to Shanghaiist. But apparently, Wang, who is a director of his father's company Dalian Wanda Group is no stranger to controversy on social media. He came under fire in earlier this year for vulgar social media posts about women and his dog.

At least the photos of Wang's dog wearing Apple Watches are too adorable to be mad at for too long.
