Neither the President or his challenger are sporting Swiss watches in this year's presidential contest.
The incumbent, Barack Obama, prefers a Jorg Gray 6500 (pictured above), powered by a Citizen movement famously given to him on his birthday by the Secret Service.
The obscure watchmaker has since rocketed to fame with arguably the world's most famous person as a client.
The challenger, Mitt Romney, generally sports a Seiko Windward or a Nixon Private (see below).
While Obama and Romney don't share a lot in common, all three of their mainstay watches are Japanese quartz watches.
