Timepieces That Make The Man: Obama, Apollo 11, Tarantino, & More

Last time, we looked at the timepieces on the wrists of powerful CEOs. This time, we direct our attentions to a more diverse set of men. Each of whom are not only highly accomplished in their respective fields, but whose time is/was highly valuable. It only makes sense that they set the pace of their day to day with something that is nothing short of impeccable. Here are the watches worn by some of the world’s most interesting men.

(Note: some prices may only be approximations due to the singular nature of the pieces issued to the individual.)
