TO A FUTURE PRESIDENT

In the lead up to the 1960 presidential election, Senator John F. Kennedy received a prophetically engraved OMEGA Slimline watch from his friend Grant Stockdale. Following his victory, Kennedy wore the watch during his inauguration on 20 January 1961.

Kennedy’s Slimline watch can now be seen at the OMEGA Museum in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland. It’s also a little known fact, that Jackie Kennedy wrote numerous letters in which she described her admiration for her husband’s OMEGA watch.
