Askmen: Barack Obama watch

Now you own the same watch that Barack Obama wears - $325 from Jorg Gray.

"This watch, with the official U.S. Secret Service seal, is only available at the Service’s employee store. You, however, can have the same watch, sans the seal, for almost the same price. And you can even have your own design placed on the dial. The special nature of this watch jumped tenfold when the agents guarding Barack Obama gave him one as a gift. Since then, Obama has been seen wearing it regularly.

The watch of the United States Secret Service, the JGC6500 chronograph is an oversize, 41 mm stainless steel chronograph with a screw-down case back and is water tight to 100 meters. The domed crystal is high-impact, scratch resistant mineral crystal, and what sits below is sheer simplicity. The chronograph’s functions are powered by the OS20 movement from Japan. The left sub-dial tracks minutes, the low center sub-dial tracks seconds, while the right sub-dial serves as a 24-hour clock that's perfect for international travel. The date window rests at an angle between the four- and the five-hour positions. The black strap is Italian Buffalo leather."
