Jorg Gray is a California-based brand of wristwatches.[1][2]

History[edit]

Jorg Gray was established as a watch line in 1998 by Logomark, Inc.[3] in Tustin, California. Originally, its watches were manufactured as promotional items for corporations and federal agencies.[4] It became a retail-only brand in 2009.[5]

The brand gained global exposure when Barack Obama was photographed wearing a JG6500 gifted to him by the U.S. Secret Service. It bears the Secret Service logo on the dial.

Brand ambassadors[edit]

Jorg Gray brand ambassadors include Indy Racer Alex Tagliani, MotoGP and former WorldBike Champion Ben Spies, US international and Seattle Sounders FC soccer player Clint Dempsey,[6] and Connor De Phillippi.

Collection[edit]

Jorg Gray timepieces include Presidential, Classic, Sport, Chronograph, and Limited Edition watches for both men and women.[7] The company added the JG6500 Automatic to the product lineup in November 2015. The brand launched a women's collection in 2013. [8]
