Raineri Jewelers Introduces Barack Obama Commemorative Watch
Raineri Jewelers is proud to introduce the Jorg Gray 6500 Barack Obama Commemorative Edition Watch
By: Richard Komatz, Director of Marketing
The Jorg Gray 6500 Series Chronograph Watch was given to President Barack Obama as a birthday present from the Secret Service in August 2007. Since then, this watch has fast become his daily timepiece, and he has worn the watch at numerous historical occasions and social events.
Based on the unprecedented worldwide demand for the 6500, Jorg Gray created a commemorative edition of the watch, memorializing the historic inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States. "President Obama's universal appeal has catapulted him into unparalleled celebrity [status]," said Trevor Gnesin, president of Jorg Gray. "As a result, people around the world want to feel a distinct connection to him. By wearing the same chronograph as the President, they are able to create this bond."
Obama is frequently photographed wearing the classic timepiece, on such notable occasions as the Democratic Nomination Speech (August 2008), Presidential Election Victory Speech (November 2008), Inaugural Swearing-in Ceremony and Inaugural balls (January 2009), and signing his first Presidential Proclamation (January 2009).
The Jorg Gray 6500 Commemorative Edition Chronograph features a case cut from solid stainless steel, a matte black dial, Italian buffalo leather strap, high precision Quartz chronograph movement, scratch-resistant mineral crystal, date display, and is water resistant to 100 meters. The watch is available in both mens and ladies models.
This sophisticated time piece has fast become a highly sought after and valuable collector's item, and is now available for purchase at Raineri Jewelers' New York location, as well as through the Raineri Jewelers website, http://www.rainerijewelers.com.
