Rolex President v Datejust

Rolex President's Debate 

Rolex President v. Datejust

Incase you missed the most recent U.S. Presidential debate, you can watch it below.

Ironically, both Present Trump and President Biden both wear Rolex watches. In the photo below we see the Teflon Don, rocking his yellow gold Rolex Day-Date 'Presidential' before he ascended to the U.S. Presidency.

So just like President Eisenhower (pictured below), Trump wore a Rolex President before being elected, but Eisenhower wore a Rolex Datejust. Both the Rolex Datejust and Day-Date models have been considered Rolex political tool watches for many decades

Speaking of Rolex President's rocking Rolex watches, President Biden showed up at his inauguration rocking a stainless steel Rolex Datejust that his wife gave him as a congratulatory gift, as seen below in his wrist during his inauguration swearing in ceremony and speech.

Also, speaking of President Biden rocking Rolex, the photo below of him, taken in the Oval Office in the White House, is definitively the most presidential looking Rolex image I have seen to date.

Speaking of Rolex Presidential looking images, the 1966 Rolex Magazine ad comes to mind. 

There is a fascinating backstory behind the Rolex Magazine ad pictured above for 'The president's watch', which I cover in my upcoming Rolex History book series, which has to do with President Johnson, who is pictured below.

Like Father, Like Son

Speaking of U.S. President's rocking Rolex, it's interesting to see some of their sons also rocking Rolex. In the photo below we see President Eisenhower's son, John Eisenhower rocking his yellow gold Rolex Datejust just like his father's Rolex model.

Below we see Hunter Biden posing with his father, while rocking his Batman GMT-Master.
