Where great old Macs live again!

 I'm a Mac using watch geek and suffice to say I'm fascinated by Apple watches. Sadly on the return of the Steve Apple watches pretty much went away.  From what I read he felt the ones being made did not live up to the quality standards of the Apple Logo. 

 I wanted an APPROVED Apple watch with some build quality, not like the Hong Kong Knockoff I'd been wearing, or the plastic ad  junk that was common with Apple at the Jobbsian return.

 Anyway, after passing many cheap plastic Apple promo watches and incredibly overpriced OS8 watches I saw this rather nice Jorg Gray,  "They are a subset of the company Logomark"  who makes corporate logo items in custom batches for various companies, from cheap stuff, to several grades of watches, from plastic to pretty decent.  Obama wears a Jorg Gray. They make the famous  "Obama Watch" now.

 I'm attaching the eBay pic of this watch as I still need to take a good one, I just want to know if anyone knows the model.

 Internet searching is nearly futile.   It was either sold in the "Mothership" Gift store in Cuppertino, for the visitors, or it was a corporate incentive model given to employees or visitors. I'm leaning to the later as the Mothership watches "also made by Jorg Gray" sold in the gift shop are less substantial models from what little I've seen.

 

 Its a surprisingly nice watch.  Its QUITE heavy, with a steel case, a brushed steel face and a very thick recessed dome crystal. Its also a calendar model. This has a new band, and looks to have been very lightly worn. I'm guessing 2000-2003?      Any ideas about it?
