Saif Ali Khan always had a fetish for watches and the actor believes his Bollywood career has fanned his obsession to own rare timepieces. Saif, whose first watch was given to him by his cricketer father Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, says he did not have a watch worth talking about before he joined films. Now, such is Saif’s fixation with watches that for every project he does, he invests in a timepiece that complements the film and suits the character.
“The collection has grown with the films I have done, especially over the past six to ten years. For ‘Parineeta’, which was a period film, I bought a Vacheron Constantin Patrimony and a 1962 vintage Omega,” Saif said in an interview.
