As an election year, 2012 is a big year for the President. Since today is Presidents Day lets take a break from politics and take a look at the watches that President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle have worn while in office.
During his first campaign President Obama was spotted in a Jorg Gray, which was apparently given to him by his secret service team for his birthday. The model is a 6500 but has the United States seal on the dial, giving it a perfect presidential flair. Mr. President has continued to wear this watch through his Presidency. This chronograph watch comes with an Italian buffalo leather strap and is water resistant up to 100m. This watch also doesn’t break the bank, it retails for less than $400.
What about the First Lady? Michelle Obama wore a Cartier Tank Francaise in her official portrait, setting a chic style standard. The watch has a sleek steel bracelet and simple white dial. Michelle Obama is not the only first lady photographed in this beautiful watch. Jackie Kennedy was also seen wearing this watch in the 60’s.
Both of these watches are beautiful and worthy of the oval office! Happy Presidents Day everyone!
