Jorg Gray, an American watch brand designed to change the way we view time, today announced its inaugural exhibition at BASELWORLD 2011. The company will showcase its collection of men’s dress, casual and ladies’ lines from March 24 – 31 in the Hall of Fascinations 2.0, C62.
Known for its timeless, yet eye-catching creations, the Jorg Gray collection includes 24 series exclusively designed to offer consumers stylish, high quality timepieces at a tremendous value with most models retailing between $350-$995 USD.
What started as a specialty private-label watch company quickly became a worldwide consumer brand as Jorg Gray gained international recognition when then-Senator Barack Obama began wearing the Jorg Gray 6500 Chronograph, a gift he received from his Secret Service detail in 2007.
Demand for this striking and sophisticated watch grew as Obama was photographed with the timepiece at numerous notable events, including his presidential election speech and historic inauguration, spurring Jorg Gray to create a Commemorative Edition 6500. Since then, the Jorg Gray Collection has expanded to include complete men’s and ladies’ lines as President Obama continues to sport the original JG6500. Today Jorg Gray timepieces can be found at fine retailers throughout the United States and in major cities around the world from London to Bangkok, Mexico City to Kuala Lumpur.
The watches are meticulously crafted combining materials such as sapphire crystal, Swiss movements, and fine leather, rubber and stainless steel straps with intricate dials and casings.
The Jorg Gray Collection features:
More than 150 stunning men’s and ladies’ models to fit any style or occasion
Swiss made movements
Sapphire crystal lenses
Diamonds in certain ladies’ models
Chronograph and non-chronograph models
Men’s watches with 40-48 mm dials
Ladies’ watches with 31-38 mm dials
