Joe Biden Surprises Watch Spotters With New ‘Presidential’ Purchase

Firstly, it’s surprising to see him with a Rolex on. Biden is a noted Omega fan, owning multiple AAA high-quality fake Seamaster Professional Diver 300M pieces, such as this one he wore to his first round of public COVID-19 vaccinations. Rolex and Omega share one of the great brand rivalries in the watch world: the horological equivalent of FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid, Ford vs Holden or Adidas vs Nike. To see Biden with a Rolex on is a bit unusual, then.

Secondly, it’s a surprise that it’s not a ‘President’. The watch most commonly associated with American presidents is the perfect replica Rolex Day-Date in 18ct yellow gold, examples of which were gifted by Rolex to every POTUS starting with LBJ, ending the practice when Clinton got into office. (These days, presidents and other politicians tend to be more low-key with their watch choices.) The gold Day-Date is usually called the ‘President’, thanks not only to its connection with the office but also due to its signature bracelet, the three-piece ‘President’ bracelet.
