Timepieces That Make The Man: The Watches Of Powerful CEOs

When worn appropriately, nice watches are so much more than a measure of length beneath the trousers. They sit upon the wrist like gestures of gravitas. Shake a hand. Sign a contract. A watch has the ability to say, “My time is valuable. I matter.” All the while it remains virtually silent, sans the gentle ticking of precious seconds gone by. And so, here are the timepieces worn by the world’s most powerful CEOs.
