    Also, does he wear it on his right wrist so that people can see his watches in photos when he shakes hands? I know he is right-handed and a watch collector.

    Or maybe the visually identical petite prince at 40mm. Looks like a 36mm to me though.

    I recall that he wore a Lange Up and Down a few years ago. This certainly is something other than that.

    Perhaps he wears it on his right wrist for the same reason I wear mine on the right wrist...... Just because I do!

    What does the body language say, armchair psychologists?

    I think it's a IWC MK XVII with the altimeter style date window.

    I think your right, the blue is from the AR coating. Its not the blue face Petite Prince XVII as that has a white date wheel.

    XVII in black is the much closer match. 41mm

    I could not imagine he would wear a watch that has the word 'petite' in the name...

    (nor 'prince' for that matter...)

    Maybe it's an inside joke at Trump's expense? Little Prince sounds about right.

    One can say anything he wants about Putin, but the man has a great taste in watches

    National Geographic's interview series with Russian President Putin already showed an IWC at his wrist...
