Nicole Goodkind reports for Yahoo Finance, “The 27-year-old son son of China’s richest man is causing quite a stir in Shanghai after posting photos of his dog wearing two gold Apple Watches with the caption, ‘“I have new watches!

“Apple’s gold watches retail for between $10,000 and $17,000 per watch depending on specifications and currently have a 3 to 4 week wait time,” Goodkind reports. “Wang Sicong is the son of Wang Jianlin who runs the real estate development company Dalian Wanda and is worth approximately $34 billion.”
“The dog reportedly lives a lavish lifestyle.
