I have found that the article regarding the watches of the heads of state originates with Pravda, which has the reputation of World Weekly News and perhaps even worse.

http://english.pravda.ru/main/18/90/361/14979_watch.html

The information might be truthful, but the odds are really against it judging by the bizarre articles Pravda has a history of publishing.

Judge for yourself.

Well, it does seem that the president does indeed wear a Timex or at least he has at one time or another.

I suspect the president might own more than one watch, regardless of which one he might wear when greeting crowds.

I remember that Cliinton wore a Timex Ironman during his 1992 campaign, which of course was an image builder, insofar as he did portray himself as a populist and he did make quite a show of jogging frequently.

I like Timex myself, so I wouldn't fault either man for his choice.
