4 Watches Worn by Presidents or Prime Ministers


It occurred to me what watches were the Presidents or the Prime Ministers wearing. I researched this and found that some of the most expensive watches were worn by the politicians! Did they use public tax money or something from their own pocket is an issue entirely left to those who are interested in politics. Here I will show who wears which wristwatch? For the purpose of this article, I collected only 4 current rulers.

 1. Barak Obama

President Barak Obama is struggling to win the US elections. The time is fast approaching and he must be using a watch to check his time out! It is said that he normally wears Tag Heuer but he also worn Jorg Gray’s sporty black chronograph. Once Obama ditched his Tag Heuer for Jorg Gray, the demand for the latter went high and the company has already started targeting the “imitator” group in the retail market. Interestingly, Jorg Gray is not that much expensive as one might think it to be. The exact model is Jorg Gray 6500 series with chronograph feature.

 2. The Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev

The Russian culture has its own place for wristwatches, pocket watches and clocks. If you are an ardent collector of watches, you must have come across the Russian antique and vintage pocket watches. But this flair for watches is not limited to the pocket watches but well extends beyond that. Not only that common people wear it, but also the ruling elite are fond of wearing luxury and Swiss designer watches. The current president wears gold Frank Muller Cintree Curvex Revolution Tourbillion.

 3. The French President, Nicolas Sarkozy

Sarkozy is even more luxurious than other rulers. He wears Breitling Navitimer, sometimes stainless steel Rolex submariner while at other times he is a fan of gold Rolex Cosmograph Daytona.

 4. President of Pakistan, Asif Ali Zardari

Pakistan is classed to be among the poorest countries, yet its President Asif Ali Zardari wears a watch which is far far more expensive than the one worn by the American President. Mr Zardari wears Breitling Blue Diamonds Signature Series Celebrity Edition watch. This watch is made exclusively on order for celebrities. So far only 11 pieces have been made. Do you know how much does this watch cost? It cost 1.92 Million US dollars! Interestingly, the Pakistani opposition leader, Nawaz Sharif, also owns the same watch.
