Have you ever wondered who the richest people are in the world? 

Have you ever been curious about how much are richest people worth?

Have you ever asked yourself what watches rich people wear?


Probably, we all knew that Elon Musk and Bill Gates are two of richest people in the world. Then, you might have a question what kind of watches does Elon Musk wear, or what does Bill Gates' watch collection look like? Is the watch collection of the richest people as insane as the collection of Mark Wahlberg, John Mayer, DJ Khaled, Crown Prince of Johor, Prince Joaan of Qatar, and other celebs.


Worry no more! You have come to the right place. In this article, you will find all the answers.


Let's start by mentioning the top ten richest people as of today, 16 March 2023. The list is from Forbes 'Real-Time Billionaire List.' Please keep in mind that this is a real-time list, so it might change over time.


1. Bernard Arnault (France) - LVMH - Net worth: $205.8 B.

2. Elon Musk (United States) - Tesla, SpaceX - Net worth: $184.9 B.

3. Jeff Bezos (United States) - Amazon - net worth: $119.3 B.

4. Bill Gates (United States) - Microsoft - Net worth: $106.4 B.

5. Larry Ellison (United States) - Oracle - Net worth: $106.4 B.

9. Steve Ballmer (United States) - Microsoft - Net worth: $85 B.

In this article, I managed to find watches that was seen on some of the richest people - Bernard Arnault, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Larry Ellison and Bill Gates.


Watches of the Richest People in the World: Bernard Arnault Watch - Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Tiffany 5740/1G​​

Watches of the World

Watches of the World's Richest People: Bernard Arnault Watch - Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Tiffany 5740/1G​​

Proudly present the new world's richest person: Bernard Arnault. The 73-year-old French is co-founder, chairman and CEO of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, commonly called LVMH, the luxury goods conglomerate known for operating iconic brands like Louis Vuitton, Tiffany and Christian Dior.


The timepiece that we can see on his wrist really represents someone with a lot of money in the bag. It is a unique piece that probably was produced only for him. At first glance, you might think that it was the hype Patek Philippe Nautilus Tiffany 5711/1A-018. BUT if you have a closer look, this one is equipped with the complication perpetual calendar.


The normal Patek Philippe 'Tiffany' retails for $52,000. The first piece was auctioned in December 2021 for $6,500,000. The second auction or the second time to sell this piece in public has changed hands for approximately $3.22 Million at Christie's in Geneva.


Now, I wonder how much would Arnault's Patek 'Tiffany' cost if it was to sell on the market....


By the way, When I was writing this article, I heard the happy news that Pharrell Williams has joined the Louis Vuitton family as their new Men's Creative Director.

Watches of the Richest People in the World: Elon Musk

Elon Musk Watch - Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M


In the picture, Musk wears Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M Omega Co-Axial 231.10.39.21.03.001. This is also the watch seen on Daniel Craig's wrist in the James Bond 'Skyfall' in 2012.


This timeless but sturdy timepiece pays homage to OMEGA's illustrious maritime heritage.

The OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M collection's striking and distinctive dial design is reminiscent of the wooden decks of opulent sailboats.


This particular model has a date window at the 3 o'clock position and a blue dial with the Teak Concept pattern. This special dial is shielded by a sapphire crystal that resists scratches. A 38.5 mm stainless steel case and stainless steel bracelet both support the bezel.


The OMEGA Co-axial caliber 8500, which is visible through the transparent caseback, powers this certified chronometer.

Elon Musk Watch - Richard Mille 029


In this picture, Musk, defeated by Arnault, wears a Richard Mille 029 Automatic with a skeleton dial on a black rubber strap.


No one has perfected cutting-edge technology and world-class design quite like Richard Mille. This is why the RM 029 design with an oversized date comes as no surprise to those who are fans of his genius.

The skeletonized dial has Arabic numerals and the date at the fourth hour. It is put through rigorous testing to ensure maximum strength. It boasts a 50m water resistance and a rubber bracelet with a titanium buckle.


Retail price: $125,000.

Elon Musk Watch - Rolex Datejust 16200


Elon Musk was photographed in front of a rocket in 2004 during the early days of SpaceX wearing a 36mm Rolex Datejust. Although a lot of people have speculated that this Datejust might be a Ref. 16200, this is just conjecture. One of the richest people in the world, displayed a lot of sophistication and simplicity when wearing a blue shirt, in contrast to the possessions he usually wears.

Watches of the Richest People in the World: Jeff Bezos

Jeff Bezos Watch - Ulysse Nardin Dual Time 3343-126-7/91


It would seem strange for Jeff Bezos, a guy with a net worth of US$181.4 billion, to choose a discontinued Ulysse Nardin Dual Time 3343-126-7/91.


The Dual Time, which retails for only US$8,000, has a polished stainless-steel case and a crisp silver metallic dial.

Additionally, it features the UN-334 movement, which was produced internally by Ulysse Nardin. It is a classic design that lasts a very long time. For this reason, a classic is a way to go even when money has no limits.

Jeff Bezos Watch - Omega Speedmaster Professional “Moonwatch” Chronograph 311.30.42.30.01.006


Here, he wears a $6,350 classic 42mm Omega Speedmaster Professional “Moonwatch” Chronograph in stainless steel. It features a black dial covered by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and graced by a small seconds sub-dial, 30-minute recorder and 12-hour recorder, and a central chronograph hand.

With its tachymetric scale, the black bezel is mounted on a 42 mm stainless steel case and presented on a matching bracelet. 

Jeff Bezos Watch - Omega Speedmaster Professional 'Blue Origin'


Bezos took an Omega Speedmaster for a 10 minute journey to space, starting the era of space tourism. The watch manufacturer for this historic achievement, donated to the passengers a custom-made Speedmaster in stainless steel featuring their name, flight number and “Blue Origin” logo engraved on the case back.

Larry Ellison is the founder and CEO of Oracle as well as being the sixth wealthiest man in the world with a net worth of $111.1 Billion. 


The Richard Mille RM005 is one of the high-end Swiss watches that the tech mogul favors and frequently wears.

Watches of the Richest People in the World: Bill Gates Watch - Casio Duro Analog MDV106-1AV

Watches of the Richest People in the World: Bill Gates Watch - Casio Duro Analog MDV106-1AV​​

During his visit to Harvard, Bill Gates, one of the richest people on the entire planet was spotted wearing the ~$70 Casio Duro Analog MDV106-1AV in stainless steel with a quartz movement and a black dial.


It is mindblowing, considering that Gates became a billionaire who has a net worth of $120 billion dollars and, in principle, could afford any watch regardless of the price. 


Well, he is probably not really a watch person, so he would invest his money in other stuff. Or he might have other luxury watches, but he just doesn't want to show them off. Who knows?


Some celebrities also have affordable Casio watches such as Kanye West and John Mayer.
