Joe Biden is the 46th and current president of the United States, was born in 1942 in Pennsylvania where he also grew up, trained as a lawyer, soon pursued a political career as a member of the Democratic Party, becoming in 1970 the sixth youngest Senator of the United States has since held several political positions, whose highest point was becoming the 47th vice president of the United States between 2009 and 2017 during the presidency of Barak Obama until, in January 2021, he ascended to the president of the most powerful nation in the world.

In 1977 he would marry again with his current wife Jill Jacobs with whom he had a daughter.

The new president of the United States, despite never having revealed his passion for watches, seems to be an enthusiast, as on several occasions he was seen wearing different watches on his wrist, including a smartwatch, but let’s get to the facts.


Seiko 7T32-6M90, this is the most affordable watch we could find on Joe Biden’s wrist, it’s a Seiko model marketed during the ’90s, it’s a two-tone steel chronograph with quartz movement and which cost around €100 at the time if you want to find an equal one you should have no difficulty finding it on eBay for a very close price.


Apple Watch, despite not being seen many times on Joe Biden’s wrist several times has been spotted using this smartwatch, we believe that he uses it more for sports as he is a regular practitioner and due to the features that the watch offers seems to be the perfect accessory for your physical activities.


Omega Seamaster 300M Ref. 2531.80.00, is a watch that has been seen to be worn by Joe Biden on several occasions, it is an Omega model no longer sold, this model comes with a steel case and bracelet, a blue dial and bezel with date opening and automatic movement, which can be purchased second hand from € 2,000.


Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch 1861, as well as the Omega Seamaster we talked about above, is another of the most seen models to be worn on Joe Biden’s wrist, it is expected that the President of the United States will have a preference for Omega watches. This Omega Moonwatch is the previous model after earlier this year it was replaced by the latest 3861 model, however, and for now, it is still available for sale on the brand’s website for € 5,030.


Rolex Datejust, lastly we can find on Joe Biden’s wrist a Rolex Datejust with 41 mm steel case, blue dial with jubilee bracelet that continues to be marketed by Rolex for € 7,600.

To conclude, Joe Biden is seen wearing a simple ’90s Seiko that costs just over €100, like a €7,600 Rolex, but his passion seems to be for watches in general. As classic car enthusiasts, we can’t fail to mention that another of the passions assumed by the North American president is cars and that he has, since the end of the ’60s, a beautiful 1967 Corvette Stingray, which we will talk about in the future article.
