Yes you can wear the same watch as President Barack Obama.
Online watch retailer Presidential Watches, Inc. now offers a commemorative edition of the Jorg Gray 6500 Series, the same make and model Obama has been photographed wearing since it was given to him as a 46th birthday present in 2007 by his Secret Service team. Since then, he has worn it to a number of historic occasions, including his Democratic nomination acceptance speech, his presidential acceptance speech, his inauguration and the signing of his first proclamation as president of the United States in January.
The commemorative edition Jorg Gray 6500 Chronograph comes with an individualized serial number and the inscription "The 44th President of the United States Barack H. Obama" engraved on the back. The fashionable timepiece has a crocodile-embossed black leather strap and white contrast stitching. The New York-based online company, an authorized independent retailer of authentic Jorg Gray watches, carries it exclusively. It retails for $325.
If $325 is a bit steep for you, and you want a piece of Obama mania, we found two supercheap alternatives. Skip the conservative route and declare your support for the president by going with an image of Barack's handsome smile on a watch face with a blinged-out bezel for a mere $10-$20. I'm gonna cop one for my nephew. Hey, if Vogue Editor Andre Leon Talley can run around in a blinged-out Obama knit hat, then blinged-out Obama gear must be chic.
