There can be a total change of policy and personnel involving potentially thousands of people — and the race is on as the outgoing administration tries to cement its policy in the face of an incoming one. HBO had unprecedented access to the last year of the Obama administration as they prepared to hand over the reins of government while trying to keep all their work over the last eight years from being undone.

Oris was founded in 1904 in the village of Hölstein which is surrounded by the Waldenburg Valley. The Calibre 115 draws inspiration from that location and continues the company's rich tradition of premium mechanical timepieces. The new timepiece features a fully skeletonized movement — including the barrel at 12 o'clock — so the watchmaker's talents are on full display. As you wind the crown, the mainspring coils until it's fully wound and ready to deliver ten days of uninterrupted power. It's housed within a 44mm brushed titanium case that employs a design passed down from a 1938 model and supplemented by a jet engine turbine blade motif introduced into the Big Crown ProPilot's bezel a few years ago. Additional details include Super-LumiNova filled hands and indices, double-sided anti-reflective domed sapphire glass, and a multi-piece titanium bracelet or a black leather strap.
