This is probably one of the most popular hours of 2017 – even around the world. This is indicated by the fact that former US President Barack Obama himself wore them before he was elected president of the United States and wears them to this day. Obama received a watch on the forty-sixth birthday of the Secret Service, in August 2007. He was seen countless times with these wristwatches and in public places. During the conduct of state business, and during his personal time.
Review of Jorg Gray JG 6500 watches
It is curious that the watch brand Jorg Gray was once a rather obscure brand, often making a corporate wrist watch by special order or a gift clock, now it’s a big brand. Barack Obama did advertise the brand almost randomly but wears them with pride. As you can imagine, this circumstance has made a miracle for watchmaker Jorg Gray, who has now launched a new full line of wrist watches.

The key difference between this model and the version that US President Barack Obama wears is the absence of the Secret Service logo on them. Another difference is the message on the back of the clock, laser-printed on the back cover. The essence of it is that it describes in detail how Barack Obama acquired a commemorative edition of the clock. An important part here is a unique serial number. This is a very rare phenomenon for watches in such a price range and has unique identifiers in such a volume of production. This is very convenient for a watch collector. By the way, some collectors call this watch – Jorg Gray “The President Barack Obama”.
The very style of the Jorg Gray JG 6500 watch is a traditional aviator watch (a pilot’s watch). This can be seen in arrows, hour markers, in contrast to black and white colors. You can notice the 12-hour marker is “typical” for the pilot models. The hour and minute hands are quite ample in size, and on the inclined ring around the dial are placed additional markers. The main ring actually has more markers, which is necessary given the functionality of the chronograph, and also cosmetically improves the appearance of the JG6500 wrist watch. Inside the model Jorg Gray JG 6500 is the Japanese Chronograph Miyota with a quartz movement (with the date). With a taste for the watch, the red tip of the main second hand is selected, as well as the red secondary second hand.

Click markers on the black dial, as well as arrows, are covered with a luminescent coating. It is quite enough for most people at the nearest viewing of time in the dark. The glass of the watch is slightly convex, it also has an anti-reflective coating. Due to the convex glass, a crystal effect is created – the set looks a bit distorted when viewed from the extreme corner, and at a certain angle it seems that the set is enlarged.

The chronograph is quite simple to use. The crown has a relief of the watch brand Jorg Gray with the logo “JG”. The watch case is made of steel and has a width of about 41 mm. Wearing the watch is convenient, since the body fits well in the shape of the wrist. Black leather strap is an integral part of such brand watches. Contrast line is popular among aviatorial style watches. The buckle is made of steel and has a laser-burned Jorg Gray logo, which is an important detail.
So, what do I think of the clock as a whole? I think that they have a rather conservative style, this is a very beautiful watch. You know, during his presidency, Bill Clinton began wearing an inexpensive Timex Ironman watch. It was an intelligent tactic – to turn to the “average person” (although he angered other politicians and foreign guests). I think that US President Barack Obama does something similar, but he tries to approach it with taste. Wrist watch Jorg Gray JG 6500 have the necessary number of functions, style and some share of classics – it is important for a politician or a president. Plus, this watch is analog, not digital.
Jorg Gray JG 6500: Price
