President Obama's Badass Shinola Watch

Postby koimaster » January 22nd 2016, 2:39pm

While the main reason for President Obama's visit to Detroit on Wednesday was to shine a light on the recuperating auto industry, he also made a point of stopping by the city's finest watchmaker. Since 2011, Shinola has been crafting American-made timepieces in the Motor City, helping transform its image and neighborhoods along the way.

For these reasons—and because they're damn good-looking watches fit for the leader of the free world—Obama visited the brand's Detroit store this week. As he was leaving, someone asked him if he bought a watch. The President responding by telling bystanders that he already owned one. Baller move, Barry.
