Watch lovers will agree that timepieces are as much about style as they are a wealth statement but the richest people in the world appear not to care much about this.
Legit.ng has compiled a list of some of the world's richest people who wear inexpensive timepieces or don't even bother at all.
1. Jeff Bezos:
Despite being the richest man in the world, Bezos is often seen wearing Ulysse Nardin Dual Time.
According to Forbes, the Dual Time is a relatively low-key choice for a man who's the richest person on earth.
2. Bill Gates:
The philanthropist is often seen wearing Casio watches, including the Casio Duro that retails for $69.95 (N27,105.62) on the brand’s website.
3. Tim Cook:
Tim Cook follows in the modest footsteps of Apple’s founder Steve Jobs when it comes to timepieces.
Cook is a fan of the Apple Watch.
4. Elon Musk:
The CEO of Tesla is often seen without a wristwatch despite being one of the richest men in the world.
5. Mark Zuckerberg:
Just like Elon Musk, the Facebook founder does not wear a wristwatch.
6. Larry Ellison:
The founder of Oracle is a fan of Panerai.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that high-profile advertisers announced that they would boycott advertising on Facebook in July as a response to the social media giant's inaction on hate speech.
The company's stock fell by 8% on Friday, June 26, and wiped $7 billion off of CEO Mark Zuckerberg's net worth.
Facebook sent a memo to advertisers and promised them an external audit of its safety tools and practices.
In other news, American tycoon Elon Musk and his wife Grimes have changed their baby boy’s name after being told the initial one did not comply with their state’s laws.
Their little boy shocked the world when people found out that his name was X Æ A-12 Musk, a never heard of moniker.
For weeks, the couple struggled to explain to people how the name was pronounced and assured their fans they were actually serious about the name they gave their child.
After enjoying around three weeks of the innovative tag, their followers found out under California law, names can only be limited to letters of the alphabet.
