What did President John F Kennedy wear on his wrist at his inauguration?  0 Comments


It was this rectangular gold Omega that was a gift from the then Irish Prime Minister. The watch was acquired by Omega and now displayed at the Omega Museum with the black and white photograph accompanying the watch in a glass case.

The Omega curators kindly allowed me the privilege of taking the watch out for a photo shoot. Following the trend of that time, the watch was a smallish watch by today's standard but it still had great presence on the wrist.

This was how the watch looked like on my wrist. An important watch belonging to one of history's most dynamic modern leaders.
