Cool reading..............

I’m surprised the Russian President do not help promote his own country watch industry even if privately he prefers something else :confused1:…granted may be not at the level of a Patek but, some Russian brands produce very nice,high end (and very expensive) pieces .....

I think they really want to come off as cultured, wordly bigshots so having a Patek on the wrist helps. . .

Don't forget that Putin really needs a watch to go with Bob Kraft's Super Bowl ring that he
borrowed to admire then never gave back.

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.

Clinton switched to Sinn j/k!
He did switch, but for the life of me I can't remember. Hublot (or some other relatively obscure Wis-watch).
Bush's other timepiece features a famous rodent.

Clinton was seen at baseball games wearing Panerai after leaving office. I think he's also been seen wearing Audemars in recent years.
