'Cheap' watch worn by Barack Obama becomes

Recommended Posts

Still Waters
A relatively inexpensive watch has become an overnight best-seller after it emerged that President Barack Obama wears the same model.

With a price tag of around £260, the Jorg Gray 6500 is far cheaper than what most people would expect the world’s most powerful man to be sporting on his arm.

Mr Obama had previously worn a pricier TAG Heuer, and when enthusiasts first spotted him with the simple new time piece at several high-profile appearances, they assumed he must have upgraded.

However, after a frenzy of speculation among watch experts as to the maker of the simple black design, it was revealed that the president had acquired a Jorg Gray.

Following the disclosure, the US firm witnessed a sharp increase in sales and is now actively promoting its goods on the back of Mr Obama’s apparent endorsement.

Jorg Gray now offers a commemorative edition version of the same battery-powered watch worn by the president, engraved with the date of his inauguration.

They should just do a full blown Obama-brand-name line of products and sell them at Walmart.

Maybe at the next press conference we could get joan rivers to ask Obama "whos he wearing?". Or maybe a tell-all about what brand of toilet tissue or fabric softener he uses.

Pecans kinda look like brains. Walnuts are closer.

That would be wonderful, as long as it's all non-fiction (preferably policy books). Use the star power to build an informed electorate.

Precisely. He's only recently had some money from selling his book. The presidency itself doesn't make squat.

Yeah, $400,000 x4 is chump change.

Not sure why anybody would really spend that much on a watch. I got mine on sale for 37 bucks and I thought that was too much. :P It's a smexy watch though.

If I remember correctly Bush was wearing Timex, which is a really cheap brand, the pariah of the Swiss watches. The presidential wristwatch must have some hidden meaning in our world, and it would be wrong for a country leader to appear wearing some IWC or Patek like an Arab oil sheikh or a nuveau-riche. While a Chinese $10 watch is not really solid enough for a president. This leaves them with a moderate $1000 range, usually worn by lower middle class.

The president has to pay a bunch of money out of his own pocket for expenses that are not covered by the government.
