Bill Clinton wears a Rolex Datejust.
The Rolex Datejust is a self winding chronometer wristwatch and was the first wristwatch in the world to feature and automatically changing date, hence the name “Datejust“. The watch was initially introduced in 1945 with either the Jubilee wristband, or the classic Oyster band. It became a very popular watch and Rolex soon released a ladies version, smaller than the original 36mm. The Datejust has a special history with the US Airforce. A special Turn-o-graph model was commissioned and given to airmen who returned from successful combat missions. It was one of these models that Chuck Yeager wore when he broke the sound barrier. Rolex has since used the watch’s popularity to base 3 more models on its design: The Explorer, Submariner, and Sea Dweller.
The model that President Clinton wears is an 18 Karat gold version of the Perpetual Oyster Datejust – a 41mm watch with rotating bezel. While the Datejust usually sells for between $6,000 and $8,000 new, with the 18k gold version retailing at over $10,000, making it one of the most expensive Presidential Watches.
