Bill Clinton: Watch Collector
When Bill Clinton was in office, he wore a Timex Ironman watch wherever he went. These days, he is a private sector speaker who easily earns $50,000 per speaking engagement. While he is no longer the president of the United States, he seems to be more politically energized then ever, and with the looks of his watch collection, wealthier then ever too.
On October 20th, Bill Clinton was seen at a fundraiser for Jim Davis sporting a nice navy blue suit, light blue shirt, tangerine colored tie and a Cartier Roadster watch. This watch and the Cartier Santos 100 are 2 of the coolest and popular watches Cartier produces. They come on a bracelet as well as a more comfortable leather strap. President Clinton in this case opted for the bracelet.
One week later the former president was at a speaking engagement at UCLA supporting Prop 87. At this particular engagement he opted for his signature blue suit, white shirt, turquoise tie, and a big Panerai Luminor. You gotta be thrilled if you are a Panerai guy. This has been your year. Panerai’s are hard to get and sell out every year, so consider yourself lucky if you have one.
As I mentioned before, Clinton is also a huge Roger Dubuis fan. A few years ago I saw him on the cover of Time Magazine wearing a Roger Dubuis Much More watch. I gotta admit the guy has good taste in watches.
