    Shinzo Abe's Wristwatches

    So me & a couple of friends actually took the time to identify the wristwatches worn by Shinzo Abe, Japanese PM.

    Omega Speedmaster Reduced 3510.50.00 (?)

    Overall, somewhat less blingy than his G8 mates IMO.

    Nice work joseff.

    I think the Astron is a tad large though on him.

    Nice work! Good for him for favoring Japanese makes. I wish Obama wore RGMs. If I were rich, I'd give him a Pennsylvania Tourbillon...

    The SARC looks great, although I think it's a good example of a watch that requires a leather strap. There's just a bit too much going on on the dial, and the bracelet, with all of its texture, makes things worse. A plain black strap would frame it nicely without adding to any of the noise.
    Current Rotation: Seiko SARB035, Seiko SKX013, Baume et Mercier Classima
    Box Sitters (waiting for repair): 1970 Seiko World Time; 1952 Omega Constellation; 1972 Zodiac Astrographic (Yeah, baby!); Stowa Antea KS (WTF Stowa? Broken after three years?); gold 1950s Hamilton of unknown model; Casio G-shock, the solar/radio model--fantastic watch, just little place in my rotation since acquiring a Seiko dive watch; a boring Tissot quartz PR50 I bought before I knew better)

    These photos are fairly recent, suggesting that he wears them on a rotation.

    To be fair, the Astron would look big on most people :)

    Agreed. It is a substantial watch in all aspects.

    Another question is what watch is on that wrist to the left side of the photo? From the three prongs, looks like a Swatch. :)

    It looks like an Astron to me. I think it's an SSE061 or something very similar.

    That seems about right.
