Watches of US Presidents (Rolex, Cartier, Seiko, & More)

As a lover of history and watches, I always try to combine these two elements in my videos. That said, I thought of a cool idea that I wanted to jump into and that is the watches of US presidents. For this video, I only want to feature presidents from recent history, the last 100 years, and we are going to only look at wrist watches since pocket watches is a whole different ball game.

Love this video. Iconic movie watches? Luminox 3001 for example (Paul Walker in 1st FnF, George Clooney in Oceans 11, and Chiristian Bale in Harsh Times.)

Fernando Pessoa says:

Great video! King Harald V in Norway, our current king, has worn the same Pepsi Rolex GMT-Master almost every day since 1962. The blue and red has almost completely faded and you can see the heavy marks of wear as he has been a frequent sports sailor his whole life, participating in multiple world championships!

Teddy, time and time again I am impressed by your videos. You have the highest production quality of any horological YouTuber. It is interesting seeing young people that I can relate to invested in watches, with all the talk of the younger generations being lost to smartphones and smartwatches. I hope that one day I can meet you, you seem like an extremely interesting person to sit and have a chat with! Keep making the amazing content!

Jonathan Guérin says:

Didn’t De Gaulle have a LIP? That would be a cool one to feature.

Perry Ford says:

Angela Merkel wears Boccia… and so does our daughter 🙂

David Sparling says:

Very cool idea, Teddy, as I also am a lover of history! Hopefully, Ronald Reagan will be in episode 2.

Jimmy Salgado says:

Hey Teddy, besides working in videos about presidents you could also show watches that have appeared in movies, good work btw

PowerForward says:

Brother Teddy, great vid. Any idea where General Ike’s watch is now? What about that tank style piece JFK was wearing in your video? For consideration: Dr. MLK, Jr., Warren Buffet, Brian Williams—11th Hour…usually see a diver on his wrist, and former VP—Joe Biden. Be well.

Dennis Cimmino says:

FDR’s first presidential election was in 1932.
