Unless you spent the most recent couple of weeks alone in some North-Pole cavern, with no admittance to the world, you likely know already that France has another President by the name of Emmanuel Macron. We don’t manage legislative issues here, yet as a watch magazine, the subject of what sort of watch Mister Macron wears immediately emerged. Knowing the Frenchies and their typical “no outside indications of wealth” strategy, it has been very difficult… however we persevered and have discovered what can be, here and there in any event, seen on the wrist of Emmanuel Macron.
Although seeing a President or a significant lawmaker wearing an extravagance watch with a 10k+ sticker price is a not an issue in numerous nations, such adornments on the wrist of a French well known individual, and particularly on the President’s wrist, is simply incomprehensible – past President, Nicolas Sarkozy, attracted the fierceness of his adversaries and a couple of writers due to his Rolex Daytona and his Patek ceaseless schedule (a 3940g, given to him by his better half). It is essential for French people’s connection to luxury and abundance – and as a French resident, I understand what I’m talking about.
Because of that, since he began his mission for the Presidential political race about a year prior, it has been difficult to locate a solitary photograph or meeting of Emmanuel Macron with a watch tied around his wrist – as we say, avoidance is better compared to cure. Notwithstanding, knowing the past situation of Mister Macron as an investment banker and M&A trained professional, it appeared very unthinkable that there was not a solitary extravagance watch in his possession.
Looking back at the archives, before 2016, there are a few pictures of new French President Emmanuel Macron, at that time Minister of Economy, wearing a rectangular watch on calfskin lash, which gives off an impression of being an exquisite Cartier Tank with little seconds – as has been accounted for in a few French magazines.
EDIT: following a comment from one of our perusers, apparently the watch being referred to isn’t a Cartier Tank yet a Longines Dolce Vita, a watch very close in plan to the Cartier, however controlled by a Quartz development. Not all that much, with no motivation to shroud it during the campaign.
