Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

We came across this article and it piqued our interest.  This weeks Spot the Watch is on Senator Ted Cruz, who is one of the front runners for the Republican Party nomination in the upcoming US election.

Searching through Google Images can be an arduous process.  When the subject loves watches, it isn’t too difficult.   Senator Ted Cruz only seems to wear a couple of timepieces which aren’t out of this world but are still are alright.

The first watch spotted on the potential future President of the United States is a Patek Philippe. We are pretty certain it is a Calatrava Reference 5119 on the wrist of Senator Cruz.  He has not been wearing this timepiece on the campaign trail, but has worn it during his time as United States Senator. It has a yellow gold case and a white lacquered  dial with Roman numerals and subsidiary seconds featuring the Caliber 215 PS manually wound movement.  A elegant looking timepiece, that pairs well with a suit.

The second and final watch is a  TAG Heuer “Professional” 2000 Chronograph. It has a tricompax layout and date between 4 and 5 o’clock.  It’s a quartz model but none the less still a sporty looking watch.

Senator Cruz does the double wristed look by wearing a FitBit on his right wrist.  The popular monitoring device doesn’t look like a watch but more like a wristband that keeps track of the users heart rate and how many steps they have taken etc.

That concludes this short Spot the Watch.  We will be featuring some more Chefs and watches in our next installment.
