At first I thought it was an older Rolex Submariner, but it's not - High end Seiko or Citizen? Maybe a Longines?
FYI - south paws usually wear the wrist watch on the right - so Mr. Obama wears a right handed watch on his left wrist. The bezel appears to be chipped too. When will he get the Rolex Presidential?
