What kind of watch does Arnold Schwarzenegger wear

 Arnold Schwarzenegger has been talking about creating his own line of watches for some time, but has yet to deliver. In the mean time, Schwarzenegger wears the Panerai Luminor most frequently.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is an Austrian born actor, writer, body builder, and politician. He is most famous for his roles in the Terminator series, in which he played the titular Terminator, a machine sent back in time to kill the leader of a human uprising.

Arnold is known around the world for achieving his goal of being the greatest body builder in history. While this may seem to be a subjective title, Arnold definitely has some achievements here to his credit: He still holds the record for being the youngest person to ever win the Mr. Olympia title – first achieving the title in 1970 at the age of 23. He won Mr. Olympia another 5 times in a row after that, and then again in 1980 when his entry was a last minute surprise with only two months of training for the event.

Added to his already impressive resume, Schwarzenegger ran for – and won – the governor’s race in California, officially making him an accomplished politician. He was the chief executive of the state of California for 8 years.

The Panerai Luminor

Arnold is a watch fanatic and avid watch collector. His favorite seems to be his Panerai Luminor, which is frequently photographed wearing.  The Panerai Luminor features a stainless steel case with a black croco-embossed genuine leather strap.

The watch itself is 44 millimeters in diameter and 15.5 millimeters thick. The case back is stainless steel and features the engraved Panerai logo to certify authenticity.

The face of the watch is marked with Arabic numerals. The dial is black which helps the luminescent hands and hour ticks to stand out during low light use. The Luminor features two complications: The date at the 3 o’clock position, and a second counting sub-dial at the 9 o’clock position.

The crystal is sapphire with a specialized coating to cut down on glare. Being sapphire, the face is also scratch resistant.  A unique feature of Panerai watches, the crown itself is protected by a unique lever. This makes the watch easy to identify and adds a certain elegance to it.

The watch runs on an automatic C.O.S.C. tested engine developed by Panerai and is water resistant to 30 BAR, or 300 Meters / 1,000 Feet. The Luminor is suitable for swimming, snorkeling, and amateur diving. Coming in at a price of $5,197.01, this watch is not for everyone. But it is worth every penny for those that do buy it.
