What’s the mystery behind World’s Richest People like Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, wearing ‘affordable’ watches?
We look at some of the world's wealthiest people in tech and discover that they might be more concerned with being on time than on-trend.
From Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates to Mark Zuckerberg, tech billionaires and CEOs we know that these prominent personalities are not exactly known for their style or indulging in luxury items like timepieces.
Between the late Steve Job’s quartz Seiko watch to Mark Zuckerberg’s zip-up hoodies, the statement they seem to want to make with their fashion choices is that it doesn’t matter to them.

Being on Time than on Trend
We look at some of the world’s wealthiest people in tech and discover that they might be more concerned with being on time than on-trend.
The Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos, is rarely seen without his “Wall Street bro” vest all year round. The watch we saw him repeatedly wear throughout the year is the Ulysse Nardin Dual Time.
The ‘Dual Time’ is a relatively low-key choice for a person who is worth US$113 billion.
The Microsoft-founder-turned-philanthropist, Bill Gates has not thrown his billions, actually US$98 billion to be exact, into acquiring luxury items.
Spending most of his time managing the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Gates keeps his day on track using Casio watches, including the Casio Duro that sells for US$69.95 on the brand’s website.
The Apple CEO, Tim Cook, follows in the modest footsteps of the company’s founder, Steve Jobs when it comes to timepieces. Yes, Cook is a fan of the Apple Watch.
The university dropout that made tech history and became one of the world’s youngest billionaires at the age of 23 in 2008 does not seem to care about luxury items. He is often seen getting around town in a more modest Acura TSX and a Honda Fit.
You won’t see Zuckerberg in a Rolex or checking his Facebook notifications on his expensive watch. The 36-year old does not wear a watch.
