Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games

OMEGA launches a contemporary classic to honour the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

With the new Sochi Petrograd, OMEGA highlights a piece from its Museum Collection and commemorates the upcoming Olympic Winter Games.

Recalling a timepiece originally produced for a prominent Russian leader in 1915 and borrowing from the unique style of a wristwatch in OMEGA’s Museum Collection, the OMEGA Sochi Petrograd is a tribute to the host country of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games and a reintroduction of a timeless design that is as distinctive today as it was nearly a century ago.

The “Tonneau” shape of the polished 18K yellow gold case is one of the most fascinating design features of this timepiece and brings back a favoured style from an earlier era. The case is presented on a striking burgundy leather strap complete with an 18K yellow gold buckle.
