Lyndon B. Johnson wearing a Rolex President Day-Date
Johnson was the first US president to wear the Rolex Day-Date. In 1966, Rolex first advertised the model as “The presidents’ watch” further emphasizing it’s connection to the White House. Johnson wore it often during his term and also gifted it to friends.
Other watches: Vulcain Cricket Calendar with his initials on the dial, a Jaeger LeCoultre Memovox with the presidential seal on the caseback, and a Patek Philippe ref 2526 with the golden rule inscribed on the dial.
