Jaffe stocks ‘hot-selling’ Obama commemorative watchWritten by Michael Miller | Editor in Chief Emeritus | email@example.com
President Barack Obama has captivated (or irritated) nearly every aspect of culture since his run for president. That includes the world of fashion, with the latest notable example being the Jorg Gray 6500 watch.
According to company spokeswoman Alana Morgan, “President Obama received the timepiece as a gift from his Secret Service detail on his 46th birthday and is still wearing it to this day. He has been photographed wearing the watch on such momentous occasions as his presidential election victory speech, the inaugural swearing-in ceremony and the signing of his first presidential proclamation.”
Morgan said each watch comes with an individualized serial number and inscription marking the historic 44th inauguration.
The watch features a 12-hour main watch with luminous seconds hand, a 24-hour indicator inset dial at three o-clock position, continuous seconds indicator at six o-clock position and chronograph minutes (stop-watch) at nine o-clock position. It is housed in a solid stainless steel case, water resistant to 10ATM with a high-impact scratch resistant crystal face. It offers Miyota Caliber OS-20 movement.
The watch is available in men’s and women’s styles, in silver, rose gold and bronze. It retails locally for $325 at Harold Jaffe Jewelers, 4211 Talmadge Road, and is available on the Jorg Gray Web site, www.jorggray.com.
Jeff Jaffe said the watch is one of the season’s “hot sellers.” “It is a classic-looking watch and the perceived value is incredible,” he said. “People see it and think it costs far more than it does. This watch is really putting Jorg Gray on the map.”
