President Obama and Men’s Watches: His Quirky Style

President Obama is the man. He’s always on point and entertaining to watch and listen to whether he’s giving a press conference or appearing on a popular talk show like he did last night on the “Late Show” with Dave Letterman.

Although Obama has been on the “Late Show” five times before, this was his first appearance since becoming President, therefore everyone was tuned in to see what he would say and do. Of course he was cool and personable and I’m sure Letterman received some good ratings.

The public doesn’t just like to see and hear what Obama says and does; they also want to talk about and analyze what he wears. When it comes to what the President wears during his normal work day and frequent media appearances, it’s pretty much a standard outfit: dark suit, white shirt, blue tie and American flag pin on his lapel. The one way for him to make a fashion statement and express himself is by wearing a watch. President Obama is known to have a couple different men’s watches: a Rolex, a TAG Heuer and a Jorg Gray.

Each of these men’s watches makes a different statement: a Rolex is a Rolex, one of the most expensive brands of luxury watches ever, and the one which he was seen wearing when he was running for President. Ironically, or not, his then “competition” John McCain also wore a Rolex.

When still a Senator, Obama religiously wore a TAG Heuer Series 1500 Divers watch. This was his daily watch for about ten years and one which he still wears. TAG Heuer produces many sporty men’s watches that are not out of reach for the average American to own.

The Jorg Gray watch that Obama has also shown much loyalty to has received the most attention because before he wore it, no one had heard of it. Given to him as a gift him by one of the Secret Service agents protecting him when he was still a Senator, this is an inexpensive men’s watch that costs about $200 – $250.

Last night on the “Late Show” one could see that he was wearing a large sized watch but which one was it? People are tweeting that it was an Omega watch, or maybe a Rolex? My guess is that it was not a Rolex, as most men’s watches by Rolex seem to have a metal bracelet and the one he wore has a dark leather strap. Unless the President has recently gone out and bought an Omega watch, likelihood is, that it was either his trusty TAG or his often worn Jorg Gray.

With all this talk about what kind of men’s watch the President wears, what no one seems to be talking about is which hand he wears it on? Most people are right-handed so it’s common to see watches worn on left-hands, but as you may have noticed, Obama is left-handed, which would normally mean that he wears his watch on his right hand, but he doesn’t… he wears his watch on his left hand. A total quirk and something else that he will go down for aside from being one of the best Presidents this country as ever seen.
