Who Wears What??
are few more desirable, or desired, possessions than a fine
timepiece. By now most of us are familiar with the
Omega 007 James Bond Seamaster watch, after so many featured
screen-shots, it would be almost impossible to miss it.
Presently, "the James Bond" watch means Omega and Quantum of
Solace with Daniel Craig as 007. Pierce Brosnan introduced
the current brand when he strapped on a Seamaster quartz in
GoldenEye. Just one film before, Timothy Dalton concluded
his tenure with a Rolex Submariner Date, bookending what
many erroneously believe was the first James Bond watch on
screen with Sean Connery as 007 Dr. No: The Rolex
Submariner. Roger Moore is perhaps best known for his Seiko
affiliation. We're fascinated by these models as we are in
the very first James Bond wristwatch modified by Q-Branch,
the Breitling Top Time "Geiger counter" in Thunderball, the
pre-Daytona chronograph worn by George Lazenby, and even the
illusive timepiece worn by Barry Nelson as Jimmy Bond on
television. James Bond Watches grew out of a lifelong
interest in horology, 007 gadgets, and style. References and
actual wristwatches were collected over the years, but
things got serious in 2006 when we were the first to
positively identify the new Casino Royale watch.
But what other fine timepieces are featured in other films?
Also, it would be great to know what watches our favorite
movie stars and celebreties wear on their wrists. We where
able to compile a short list with the help of internet. In
no way it is complete, but it will give you an idea of whats
out there and what is on movie stars wrists.

A watch takes a distinctively special place among
politicians' accessories. One may say that a watch is the
only standard of luxury consumption. Real estate, yachts and
jets are hidden from the public eye, as a rule. A watch is
something that everybody can see every day. The Russian
Newsweek conducted a research to find out which trademarks
and models Russian oligarchs and politicians wear. It turned
out as a result of the research that the Russian political,
art and business elite prefer gold watches by best Swiss
makers that count several centuries of experience. A watch
underlines a high public status of its owner. Russian
President Vladimir Putin wears most expensive watch among
Russian politicians. The head of state wears a $60,000 Patek
Philippe Perpetual Calendar watch. Putin wears his watch on
the right wrist, the magazine wrote. The cost of Putin's
watch is equal to the amount of the president's annual
wages. The Russian president makes $60,000 a year. It looks
like Putin is rather devoted to this watch brand. In 2003,
Putin also had a Patek Philippe, although it was a different
model - Patek Philippe Calatrava. Patek Philippe is a very
conservative and expensive brand. Patek Philippe is a watch
for rich presidents, presidents and politicians. It is
noteworthy, that this brand does not like public
advertising. An NTV correspondent decided to find out once
if Putin was really wearing a Patek Philippe. “I have heard
that the president has one of our watches. It is a rather
strict model, although it is not the most complicated one,”
a spokesperson for the watchmaker said. Several Russian
deputies and governmental officials also have a fondness for
the presidential trademark. Anatoli Chubais, the chairman of
the energy giant RAO UES of Russia wears a classic gold
Patek Philippe complete with indicator of lunar phases and
two additional calendar meters. Chubais wears his watch on
the left wrist, though. President of Alpha Bank, Peter Aven,
wears a bourgeois Patek Philippe Annual Calendar that comes
in a white metal case. Aven's watch costs not less than
$19,000. Moscow Mayor Yiri Luzhkov owns a Patek Philippe
Calatrava for $18,000. A year ago the mayor had a gold watch
with a portrait of Alexander Pushkin on the back lid.
Luzhkov received the watch as a gift from the company
Breguet for the 200th anniversary of the poet. Chelsea's
owner, oligarch Roman Abramovich has a selection of Rolex
watches. Now he wears a $29,000 Rolex Daytona, although he
had a gold Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Submariner for about
$19,000 before. Mikhail Gorbachev wears Omega Constellation,
Zhirinovsky owns a Soviet-made Slava watch. US President
George W. Bush is a very modest person: he wears a 50-dollar
Timex Indiglo watch. The American president is sure that he
will never lose his watch: the presidential watch has a
personal engraving on the back: George W. Bush President
January 20, 2001. California governor and Hollywood star
Arnold Schwarzenegger wears Audemars Piguet, models Royal
Oak Offshore and Paneria Luminor. Italian Prime Minister
Silvio Berlusconi, who has a great passion for watches,
wears the most expensive Constantin Vacheron watch for
