    Hyundai CEO wearing a Casio

    This morning the news portals in Croatia are covering the new partnership between our local Rimac car company and Korean giant Hyundai.
    The picture used shows the two CEO's signing the partnership. Mate Rimac and Eui-Sun Chung.
    On Chungs wrist we can see something that looks very very similar to a simple Casio F-91w, a timeless classic.
    Huge respect to the guy!!

    Why not? He has nothing to prove to anyone so he can wear whatever he likes. It also sends right message.
    It should be special!

    Don't get me wrong. I agree it is great that he does!

    But I think it may very well be part of a strategy that is meant to reinforce the message that Hyundai is a people's car.

    I bet their execs have a dress code that suggests humbleness and people discouraged to show off. And most of them likely drive Hyundai even though they could afford much more expensive cars.

    He is probably showing a good example to other execs thereby encouraging them to do the same.

    I imagine there's some truth to this.

    Or he could be like me and a lot of other people. I could drive a more expensive car, but I have found Hyundai like Casio to be a great value. I could easily buy a Rolex or other expensive watch, but for me personally that would make little sense, my taste lean toward practical.

    Or it could be part of NO MESSAGE at all and it's a childhood remembrance of his first watch or maybe he just like the damn thing.

    Eastern and Japanese in particular CEOs do not get same salary as west read US/Canada.
    In Canada average CEO makes average worker salary before noon on first workday of the year.
    Pay gap between Toyota CEO and let Say GM/Tier one NA automotive supplier is 5-6 times yet it still a lot of money. But modesty is one of the key differences.
    So as shareholder who invested into the company which not really bringing much profit to you how you will look at dude (of any gender) who get steady pay raise cost as much as whole factory full of workers and than some, wearing expensive Swiss watch and projecting lavish lifestyle?
    So modest Casio is proper message to anyone.
    Clinton was wearing Timex you can buy in any Target/Walmart and it was fantastic message to voters.

    Hyundai made a lot of progress in recent years and they invested heavily in R&D, marketing and business development. So cost cutting and efficiency it likely all rage at Hyundai right now.
    Automotive is in decline so things are getting really frugal.
