President Obama was seen wearing a white gold Rolex Cellini recently, which is interesting, considering the watches Obama wore in office. The white gold Cellini is not a typical watch, certainly not from Rolex. It’s not the most well-known, it’s not the most expensive, and it’s not the most under-the-radar. It’s a watch you buy if you know watches – you don’t necessarily have to be a huge fan, but you know.
That then begs the question – how long has Obama been “into” watches? Many presidents have feigned “commonality” by wearing Timexes, Swatches, etc., to play the part of unaware, unpretentious, conservative dresser. But is that how they actually feel? We’re speculating that Obama may actually be into watches, despite his quartz presidency.
