JFK's watch

As the President prepares for his State of the Union speech, it is remarkable that John F. Kennedy gave his first State of the Union speech 50 years ago this week.  He wore an Omega wristwatch; a few years back, Omega purchased the watch that JFK was wearing at that speech:

The company says it spent $350,000 to acquire it.

It has also created for sale a commemorative version, a copy of the one JFK was wearing at that speech:

This is so classic it seems almost too perfect.

Unfortunately, at $9,100, I am going to have to pass on this beauty.
