Howard Schultz had better hide his Daytona


When you run for political office everything matters. You always have to wear a suit – but not anything too nice – you have to drive a car – but nothing fancy – and you have to wear a watch. And that watch shouldn’t be a Rolex Daytona.

Watches are a signifier and a Rolex Daytona signifies that this guy has a watch more expensive than most used cars. Ultimately, most presidential candidates wear something like a Casio F91w-1 or a Timex Ironman, watches that you buy at the pharmacy, put on for a few years, and then give to your presidential library if you win. At this point in the 2020 election cycle I doubt Schultz and the other candidates have to worry too much about which watch to wear but here’s our WWR tip: don’t wear anything fancy come late 2019, friends, or eagle-eyed watch nerds will call you out.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. You know what, screw ’em. This is a self-made man that should wear whatever he wants. Ironically, most of the snowflakes that would worry about what the dollar amount on his wrist reflects are the same people that funded his ability to purchase it.
