Omega To Sell Replica JFK Watches
In 2005, Omega spent $350,000 on the Ultra Thin Omega watch that belonged to President John F. Kennedy. Now they are making the most of their investment with the launch of a limited-edition timepiece that will be virtually identical to the "Ultra Thin" Omega that Kennedy wore during his January 20, 1961 inauguration and throughout much of his presidency. There will be 261numbered commemorative timepieces available for purchase this spring. The watches will have the same 18K gold casing and black leather strap as well as the gold stamp of the word "Omega" and the company's symbol both on the original. Each wristwatch will retail for $8,250 and will be available for purchase in time for Father's Day. Given the recent comparisons between the two in the media, it would be the perfect gift for Barack Obama.
