The Watch Hunter of Africa: Roni Madhvani

Roni Madhvani, a Ugandan of Indian origin, has the rarest collection of Patek Philippe’s vintage watches. In fact, his stock of the Gilbert Albert watches is probably second only to the brand itself. WatchTime India brings you a rare peek into the revered collection.

Uganda, a “must” on any discerning traveller’s list, defines the ultimate African adventure - unspoiled wilderness packed with gorgeous discoveries and exhilarating experiences. It’s a fantastical reality away from the everyday world, where one day you go hiking with mountain gorillas and the next day a boat trip down the Nile takes you past snoozing crocodiles and snorting hippos. Hugely favoured by Ernest Hemingway, who cheated death twice during his African safari in 1954, Uganda was the “Pearl of Africa” for Winston Churchill and Queen Elizabeth’s most cherished haunt.
