Hodinkee however focused on the wristwatch Mr Obama was sporting in the painting, a choice that goes against the former President’s reputation of wearing everyday brands.

The Rolex Cellini is from Rolex’s line of traditional-looking watches that often are more minimalist than the likes of a Datejust. Mr Obama in the painting opted for the white gold iteration of the piece, which comes in a 39mm case and retails for $15,200.
