On July 24, Claudine Barretto posted a series of photos to her Instagram showing what may be the start of a new family tradition. In the photo set, the 39-year-old actress and mother passed down one of her Rolex watches to her daughter Sabina. The gesture was a birthday and moving up gift for the young girl.
While not explicitly mentioned, based on the photos the watch is the Rolex Lady-Datejust. The estimated retail price of the watch is $7,350 or almost 393 thousand pesos.
In the post Claudine wrote a message for her daughter, saying “Since you’ve been a very Good Girl i’m passing this watch to u na.”
She goes on to add the story of the watch and her special connection with it, “i was 13 when i got to buy my 1st Rolex & this was my fourth which of course will go to my Sabina.”
Barretto’s caption also included a note wishing her daughter would take care of the prized possession, and that one day it would be passed on to Sabina’s own daughter.
Besides receiving the watch, Sabina celebrated her 14th birthday surrounded by family and friends in a party at their family home in Marikina City. Sabina graduated from Grade 8 at Multiple Intelligence International School in Quezon City.
