This watch was given to him as a birthday gift by his secret service detail. Then a candidate for the presidency, Obama was turning 46 years. The watch was given to him with a secret service logo on the dial. Since then, Jorg Gray has become a self-reliant brand with a line of watches. The JG6500 now comes inscribed  with President Obama’s inauguration date which was January the 20th 2009 at the back.  This watch can now be found in a variety of designs.

This particular Jorg Gray 6500 is a high precision Japanes chronograph that is analog, has a black dial, a stainless steel case, a water resistant depth of 330 feet and a leather calfskin band.

I wear this watch ocassionally and I have to say that it is an amazing timepiece. The watch is close to accurate and is durable. I highly recommend this watch.
