Watch of the day
What's my wrist-wear choice for today?
My Flavor Of The Day
For Wednesday, I opted to wear one of my timepieces, that definitely deserves more wrist-time, the Jorg Gray, 6500 Chronograph, Presidential, Limited Edition. I always love to wear timepieces that have an interesting backstory. After all, I think those types of pieces make excellent conversation starters; and this Jorg Gray model definitely qualifies.
This timepiece is the "Presidential" version of the 6500 Chronograph. It is called the "Presidential" edition, because this is the very model that was gifted to then sitting President, Barack Obama, by his Secret Service Team. The cool factor with this timepiece, is that there is numerous, verifiable authentic photo evidence, showing President Obama wearing the 6500 model, during various political and social engagements. It was clear that the photo captures were not just a photo or advertising opportunity, but rather the 6500 Chronograph was a timepiece that President Obama really enjoyed wearing. Of course, that didn't stop Jorg Gray from taking full advantage of the marketing windfall, by creating a special edition timepiece ; one of which I'm sure I grossly overpaid to acquire. Timepieces worn by the rich and powerful are always a curiosity, so it's neat to know the 6500 Chronograph was a true favorite of the President.
Pairing the Jorg Gray today, with a basic black, beaded bracelet, designed by Beads By Gonzo, mirroring the white on black contrasts prevalent within the dial and strap of the timepiece.
