Here we have a line up of 5 beloved timepieces that will make you go green with envy, owned by none other than Rosmah Mansor — former Malaysia PM Najib Razak’s wife.

The brilliance of jewels, the lustre of leather and intricacy of movement, qualities most associated with the most exclusive and precious collection of watches one can possess.

1. Jacob & Co. Mystery Diamond Baguette

Featuring a characteristic round-shape case with a breathtaking diamond baguette invisible setting, this beauty is adorned with 355 baguette cut diamonds representing a total of 21.58 carats. It wraps around the wrist with a satin bracelet and a baguette-cut diamond set buckle. Resolutely feminine, the Brilliant Diamonds Baguette Mystery Dial is an elegant and beautiful evening watch that captivates and romances.

Priced at $260,000 (RM 1 million)

2. Richard Mille RM07-01

Glamorous without being obvious, the dial itself is made of Onyx and red gold, set with diamonds with a crown set with a diamond as well. Combining artistic prowess with innovative technology, the Richard Mille Lady RM 007 represents the pinnacle of cutting-edge haute horlogerie.

Priced at £120,500 (RM 657,000)

3. Hublot Black Pink Bang

Pink and Black … or the Black Pink Bang. A nearly legendary name, a fiery passion that encapsulates a perfect romance! This model dazzles with a sparkling pink bezel of sapphires surrounding a matt dial with an alligator and rubber strap. A striking display of contemporary yet classic elegance.

Priced at €21,500 (RM103,000)

4. Chanel Mademoiselle Prive Camelia

A most feminine symbol of faithfulness and pure love, the delicate camellia is a perfect choice for the lady’s dial. Also the favourite bloom of Mademoiselle Chanel, this watch features a handcrafted white mother-of-pearl camellia and features seven brilliant-cut diamonds on the dial. Set on a black satin strap, the watch is secured with a pavé diamond white gold buckle. A watch carrying great elegance and purity.

Priced at €33,000 (RM 159,000)

5. Franck Muller Infinity

Green is the colour of money, precious emeralds, lush golf courses, most associated with luxury. In this case we can’t be any more green with envy.

The harmonious forms and elegant oversized numerals create a graphic yet feminine feel. The shining case of 18 karats white gold set full diamonds and soft alligator strap caresses and flatters the feminine wrist.

Priced at €38,430 (RM 185,000)

These 5 watches are only the tip of the iceberg of the stunning collection of Rosmah Mansor, the “beautiful and intelligent” wife of former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak. It is difficult to ascertain the estimated net worth of the lady, but her collection certainly wins us over.
