World’s Top CEOs Watches

Elon Musk for Omega

It’s easy to spot celebrities with a bevy of luxury watches on their wrists, but successful businessmen are a different breed. Often more content to show their success through their business and financial endeavors, CEOs are more selective and conspicuous with what they wear.
Most of the time their watches are hidden under their cuffs, but we’ve caught wind of what some of the world’s most powerful businessmen wear to the boardroom. Here are the world’s top CEOs’ watches:


Rolex President Day-Date on Warren Buffet

Warren Buffett may be best known as the one-time richest person in the world – coming in second in Forbes’ 2009 World’s Richest ranking only after donating billions to charity. The Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway is famous for his philanthropic activities and simple lifestyle, but definitely knows that a timepiece is worth spending on. He wears a Rolex President Day-Date in yellow gold.


Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra on Elon Musk

Elon Musk, American-Canadian magnate and founder of electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla Motors, wears nothing but his own brand on his wrist these days, and understandably so.   But before Tesla launched its line of watches, he used to sport an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra with trademark ensemble of designer jeans and a black shirt. In 2010, Tesla Motors also collaborated with Tag Heuer to create the TAG Heuer Tesla Roadster to celebrate the Swiss watchmaker’s 150th anniversary.


Rolex Explorer I on Howard Schultz

Howard Schultz just stepped away from his post as Chairman and CEO of Starbucks, but he will always be remembered for shaping the once tiny coffee chain into a global consumer giant. Outside the boardroom, Schultz is actually a vintage Rolex collector, going for highly iconic watches, just like Starbucks. He has a Paul Newman Daytona with an Exotic dial, a Rolex Espresso GMT Master and a vintage Rolex Explorer.


Audemars Piguet Royal Oak on Jeff Weiner

LinkedIn’s Jeff Weiner has held the CEO position since 2009, and continues to do so after the company was brought by Microsoft last year. Known for developing a distinct brand and culture for LinkedIn, he seems to have style savvy as well – opting for an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak steel watch for his personal timepiece.


Breitling Colt Automatic on Satya Nadella

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella took over the company’s leadership in 2014 and steered it away from a failing mobile business. The result was an all-time, 31-year high for Microsoft’s stock. He relies on a Breitling Colt Automatic to keep time.
