    What does the US's former Secretary of the Treasury, Henry Paulson, wear?

    This guy was the former chief exec at Goldman Sachs, then presided over the Treasury Department. And he's wearing... a quartz model sub $100 watch?? Am I wrong? I guess money can't buy style.

    It's inverse/anti snobbery. The super-rich don't need to flaunt their wealth with a luxury watch. They may prefer to do the opposite.

    Be that as it may, that just looks pitiful with a suit.

    Maybe he owns stock in the company?

    Funny you mention, I posted another thread in G-shock's forum recently regarding whether or not G-Shockers would wear a suit with their watches. Most said NO, and those whom said yes opted to wearing less sporty versions of the G-Shocks (meaning analog-only). This photo is of Paulson before a Congressional hearing, and you'd think he'd wear something (anything) more appropriate for such an occasion.

    The current Secretary of the Treasury, Timothy Geithner, also wears an inexpensive digital (Casio, Timex?). Geithner always struck me as a bit less stylish than other high officials, but Paulson shocks me!!

    I'm not surprised by Bernanke, I am by Timothy Geithner. And I don't even want to know what W. wears...

    I suppose they're trying to appear that they're just humble public servants
