Syamashka: My watch costs only 200 or 300 dollars

Official say have cheaper watches than Lukashenka and Myasnikovich have.

Answering questions of journalistd at the opening ceremony of Luch Store Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus Uladzimir Syamashka said about his watch he has been wearing “for the seventh year”.

The official praised new models of Luch watches presented in the store, but admitted he wasn't ready to buy them.

“I have a good watch. I like it,” Uladzimir Syamashka noted, but refused to say the brand. “It doesn't cost thousands of dollars, maybe some 200 or 300 dollars. I have been wearing it for 6 years and don't want to change it.”

Unlike watches of other officials, Syamashka's model looks most cheap. PM Mikhail Myasnikovich was taken a photo wearing a Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945, which costs $37,000 in Minsk.
