Watches of Powerful Men

The website of Festina watches reminds me of the immediate past Russian President Vladimir Putin who was widely cited to have worn a Patek Philippe despite his modest salary. In contrast, the oil billionaire George W. Bush, who also receives a $400,000 salary as the president of the United States, wears a $50 Timex watch. Of course, Putin is one of the world’s most powerful men and people everywhere are not surprised with his expensive watch. He can easily obtain such gadgets and more while remaining true to his post as leader of his people.
