What watch do you guys think is the President wearing?
(not the sombrero lol)
From the bad pic and my bad knowledge it looks like a Hamilton
Looks like a Stowa Fleiger
In that photo AMLO looks to be wearing a Ray Mears Citizen Promaster (photo from here), although the crown guards aren’t clearly visible but that could be because of the blur.
He’s wearing what appears to be the same watch in this photo, but the article it comes from talks about an IWC instead.
Man, just reading that article...that's some truly mediocre watchspotting right there. I'm on the record saying that all fliegers look pretty much alike to me but the IWC doesn't have crown guards.
Edit: I originally thought it was some tabloid, but it's GQ too! They should know better.
Triangle at 12 pointing the wrong way for it to be IWC.
Yeah, the watch in both photos of AMLO looks more diver (think California dial without mixed numerals) than flieger. The Citizen is an interesting watch because it’s kind of a bezel-less diver or a very wonky field watch. But I like a watch that blurs lines.
Yeah, that IWC also has a black date wheel, a 6, and a 9 that the watches in the phot don’t have.
It’s super strange. Given the specificity of the model they mention, what might be going on is that they are talking about another watch that he has been spotted wearing (and was part of the “Gotcha! How can you have your politics, but wear an expensive watch?” political reporting, but that the wrong photo was chosen for the story. Maybe someone other than the person who wrote the article was in charge of the photo or the writer was just copying stuff from elsewhere without really knowing one watch from the other?
Naw for sure is this one LOL
On further reflection, I think this is the watch. Momentum Atlas.
Very similar to the citizen but bottom text matches slightly better.
I think it might even be the stock strap.
A sucker for watches living in France
