Omega Sochi Petrograd Watch Will Commemorate 2014 Olympics

Omega Sochi Petrograd 2014 Winter Olympics WatchSochi 2014 will be here before you know it.  As we have seen in many prior Olympic Games, Omega has created a special edition watch to mark the occasion — for 2014 it is the Omega Sochi Petrogra, a remake of an Omega from 1915.  The distinctive tonneau-shaped case is 18K yellow gold, with equally distinctive lugs.   The silvery-white dial symbolically incorporates the bold red (24-hour track), white and blue (hands) colors of the Russian flag.   This is a limited run of 100 pieces.  A great retro-inspired watch.

This is Omega’s 26th time since 1932(!) as Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games.

    Well, this is quite a nice looking watch but I can’t quite get the connection with Winter Olympics. However, I guess that Red is (still) the right colour for Russia…
    I don’t find the lugs to be very attractive but noting that the watch is a remake then perhaps the designer did not want to depart from the past.
    I wonder if Putin will acquire one?
