The Watches Worn by the Masters of the Universe

Men, especially the powerful ones who need to wear a suit to work every day, can often express their love of jewelry through one central piece – their watch. Business Insider did a cool piece about the watches worn by the most powerful men on Wall Street. Here are some of their finds:

Lloyd Blankfein, CEO and Chairman of Goldman Sachs, wears a Swatch with a clear plastic band. According to Business Insider, the watch couldn’t cost more than $245 – a modest enough expense for such a caliber businessman.
Stephen Schwarzman, CEO of Blackstone Group, also wears a Swatch.
• T. Boone Pickens, who chairs the hedge fund BP Capital Management, wears a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date that he purchased in 1964.
