It’s President’s Day weekend and there is no better time than right now to discuss the timely accomplishments of past and present leaders of our nation. When it comes to time, Presidents from Dwight Eisenhower to Barack Obama have been known to sport prestigious timepieces from Rolex to TAG Heuer respectively on their wrists.
Eisenhower was the first US President to wear a Rolex watch and was followed by Lyndon Johnson and Ronald Reagan. Eisenhower was also seen wearing a Heuer chronograph watch during his tenure as President and also wore a Hamilton watch as well.
Interestingly, John F. Kennedy received a Rolex from film legend Marilyn Monroe in 1962, but never wore the watch. Kennedy instead wore an American-made Bulova watch, as well as a Cartier strap watch.
Kennedy’s successor Johnson was also an admirer of Bulova and chose Accutron by Bulova watches as the official gifts of state during his presidency.
President Richard Nixon is known to have worn a Vulcain Swiss-made Cricket watch which featured a built-in alarm function. Nixon received the watch from Vulcain to commemorate his Preisdency. All presidents from Harry Truman to Obama have all received timepieces from Vulcain to commemorate their presidency.
