    A classic combo. Tasteful, no frills, does what it says on the tin. An admirable choice

    The Rolex might be classy, but in no way is the person wearing it classy.

    He’s also got a number of nice omega pieces. His publicly worn watches match pretty closely my own collection by sheer co-incidence.

    I never checked what the previous pres wore. Perhaps there was an orange monster for an orange monster.

    I thought a Vulcain Cricket was traditional. Must have read that wrong in the past somewhere

    Do Rolex still give all new Presidents a Day Date?

    It didn't take long for a few of the traders to start advertising their blue dialled stock as 'fit for a president'

    Tasteful watch choice for such an occasion. Maybe trying to match the blue on that US presidential seal

    To me it feels like the Omegas he wore as VP were more working tool watches, the Day Date seems to be more of a diplomat's watch.

    Gold Rolex aside, Trump had his own watch brand (top right). Not only was The Donald a stable genius, he was a manufacture too.

    I think it's an elegant watch choice for this gentleman and the position he now holds.

    Being an Omega man myself I was looking forward to an "Omega" President as well. Now I'm left a bit disappointed.
    The DateJust is a nice watch as well, just don't really understand how can anyone like the Jubilee bracelet.

    Even the President has to get a 'normal' piece to get on the list.

    I think I just barfed a little. Is there some satire in here I'm missing?

    Horses for courses. One day I like them, but most I don't. I though Biden's looked like a president bracelet!

    By coincidence wearing our 85 Marathon Gallet GG-W-113 on Wednesday/Thursday, probably more appropriate than the Rolex

    He didn't wear one, he'd put it into Timpson's for a new battery a year ago and forgot to pick it up.

    I thought 'Sleepy' Joe would be wearing a tag to remind him of his name.

    Strange how the only 'political' comment that counts refers to Sleepy. Mmm.
