The President chooses Swatch
It’s not a secret that Nicolas Sarkozy is a known dandy and he prefers to surround himself with expensive luxuries. This “rule” applies to accessories and, in particular, wrist watches, which the ex-president of France likes very much.
Two models of the Rolex Daytona, Rolex Oyster Perpetual, Breitling watch, and a gift of his beloved wife Carla Bruni the Patek Philippe 3940G in a white gold case – and this is not a complete list of watches in the collection of Sarkozy!
As you can see, the ex-resident Sarkozy can’t be accused of bad taste and, indeed, of excessive modesty. But his successor, Francois Hollande satisfied with a modest watch of Swatch brand the watch costs only 120 euros, he wear it for long time and, apparently, he is not going to leave them in a near future.
Sarkozy’s image has suffered because of his emphatic manner to surround himself with the precious things, maybe because of that the people sympathies now is exactly on the side of Hollande.
