Obama Knows What Time It Is

For more than 10 years, the only watch we ever saw on Barack Obama's wrist was a TAG-Heuer Series 1500 (left), a solid and relatively affordable piece of gear. But the one you see at the debates (right) is a United States Secret Service watch given to him on his birthday last year by the details who protect him. (He apparently has a great relationship with these guys, plays basketball with them and has invited them into his home for holidays and the Super Bowl.) Not much is known about this watch, except that it's a chronograph with the Secret Service shield. Probably contains all sorts of James Bond gadgetry and shoots frickin' laser beams.
