What watches does President Trump own?

Donald Trump owns an impressive collection of wrist watches. Some of them he got through auctions, others were gifts.

Armand Nicolet South Africa Donald Trump watches-1What may surprise you is that Trump once launched his own line of watches, the Donald J. Trump Signature collection. It was sold at Macy’s, a famous store in New York, back in 2005. Trumps watch career was short and (maybe not so) sweet: Macy’s stopped selling the watches already in 2006 upon which the production of the watches was stopped.

Many collectors stated the designs of the watches showed quite a bit of a resemblance to watches like Rolex and Tag Heuer, yet less sophisticated on the inside. Strangely, there are no pictures of Trump wearing these watches.

So, what does Trump wear?

Since Trump likes to wear shirts with long sleeves and cuffs, it is sometimes quite difficult to figure out which watch is underneath it.
