In 1994, Gates made headlines by acquiring the “Codex Leicester” for $30.8 million, making it one of the most expensive books ever sold. The purchase revealed Gates’s deep admiration for da Vinci’s genius. The “Codex Leicester,” written between 1506 and 1510, is a 72-page document filled with over 360 illustrations and drawings.

Despite his wealth, Gates is known for his affinity for Casio watches, appreciated for their reliability and functionality rather than luxury or status. For instance, Gates has been reportedly spotted wearing the Casio Illuminator Sports Digital Chrono Watch, priced at $24. This watch is known for its durability, water resistance, and basic but efficient features. Gates’s choice of watch underscores his preference for practicality and efficiency over extravagance.
