Barack Obama's Jorg Gray 6500

US President Barrack Obama wears a Jorg Gray 6500 Series Chronograph featuring a Secret Service  logo on the dial. The story goes that the secret service agents guarding him presented the watch as a 46th birthday present in August 2007.
Versions of the timepiece with the Secret Service logo are, apparently, available only in the Department of Homeland Security staff store (and who knew there was such a thing), but the watch with a standard dial can be bought in the UK for around £250.
Obama’s Jorg Gray replaced a standard Tag Heur 1500 – a model now, it would seem, superseded and no longer on sale new.
