Australia Post chief executive Christine Holgate made sure she looked the part for her career defining appearance at Senate estimates on Thursday, (which might yet turn out to be career ending, given it was so disastrous that the government quickly suspended her).
How unfortunate though, given the revelations that Holgate rewarded four senior executives with four Cartier watches worth $3000 each, that Holgate chose to accessorise her Senate hot seat session with a luxury watch. A very expensive luxury watch.
To be precise: a gold Serpenti Tubogas watch from luxury Italian jeweller Bulgari.
Or as the jeweller prefers to describe it: the watch “coils the sinuosity of the snake with the contemporary soul of tubogas” as it evokes both the “sensual curves of a woman and the fluid shape of the serpent” , with a “flexible and tubular litheness” which “radiates glamour and a truly individual style”.
