Dec 09, 2009
Specialists of the renowned horological company Omega, which will serve as an Official Timekeeper of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, are actively involved in preparations for the upcoming event, which is just about two months away.

The illustrious brand, producing highly acclaimed luxury watches, such as the Speedmaster Professional chronograph and the Constellation watch collection, has just inaugurated its flagship boutique, located on the ground floor of Vancouver's fashionable Fairmont Hotel. The fourth North American boutique for Omega watches, this store is expected to serve numerous guests of the Olympics, who will travel to British Columbia from all corners of the world.

Alongside with the extensive collection of Omega watches, anticipated by the brandís enthusiasts and connoisseurs, the store in Vancouver will also present Omega watches devoted to the Olympic Games. The list of the watches is highlighted by the special edition Seamaster Professional 300M Diver "Vancouver 2010" watch, which has been introduced earlier this year. The distinctive flair of this stainless steel Omega watch is represented by a red anodized bezel insert and a white dial, the details symbolizing the colors of the Canadian Flag.

According to the companyís representatives, this is the first exclusive store in Canada, which proposes its clients the updated spectrum of Constellation watches, intended for both women and men. Besides exceptional watches, Omega will also put up for sale a line of its fine leather goods, as well as its "Aqua Terra Eau de Toilette pour Homme" product, which represents the brandís confident entry into the world of perfumery.

The guests of the store, willing to discover the secrets of mechanical timekeepers, will be offered a perfect opportunity to watch different aspects of horological craftsmanship. They will see Omegaís major specialists carrying out their challenging tasks at a strategically placed workbench.

The Omega boutique, established in Vancouver, is to be open throughout the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. It is expected to be visited by participating athletes, representing the brandís ambassadors.

As Watches.InfoNIAC.com found out, the ribbon cutting ceremony of the store was conducted in the presence of two famous Canadian skiers: Steve Podborksi, the bronze medal winner in the downhill from the 1980 Olympic Games, and Paralympian Karolina Wisniewska, a six-time medalist and a selectee into the Canadian Ski Hall of Fame.
