Watches Worn By Billionaires And CEOs

Billionaire Elon Musk wears an Omega Seamaster on his wrist. What about Bill Gates, Bernard Arnault and others?

In a world where one’s outward appearance often serves as a reflection of their authentic self, it is no surprise that watches, luxury goods, accessories, and an array of finer things play a significant role in defining one’s social value. However, it is undeniable that wealth does not always equate to refined taste, as some individuals may amass great fortunes without truly appreciating the inherent beauty of their possessions. Nonetheless, there are exceptions to this trend, particularly among business leaders who possess a keen eye for selecting items that truly resonate with their inner essence, thus serving as a genuine expression of their true selves.

With the recent release of Forbes Billionaires 2023, familiar faces grace the list, and the new ones become the talk of the town. As the saying goes — time is money. From their fortunes to the most expensive personal items the world has to offer, the discussion probably revolves mostly around arm candy.

We’ve rounded up the watches worn by the seven richest billionaires in the world, from Elon Musk’s OMEGA to Bernard Arnault’s Exclusive Patek Philippe x Tiffany & Co and Jeff Bezos’ Ulysse Nardin.
