Swiss luxury brand Omega, Official Olympic Timekeeper for the 25th time in 2012, known internationally for its high-quality precision watches, opens its doors today to selected guests. The brand has taken over the House of St Barnabas, a historic Georgian townhouse in the heart of Soho, to offer a retreat from days full of shopping and Olympic events to an exclusive list of guests. The invitees can relax in one of the house’s many enchanting rooms, refurbished to demonstrate Omega’s vision and iconic collections, while watching the athletes compete on the big screens located throughout the house.
Omega brand ambassadors Nicole Kidman and Jessica Ennis are among the many celebrities and British sporting talents who are expected to visit the house while they are in London. Reminiscent of the exclusive English clubs that have been part of London’s elite social life for decades, the residence will be one of the most desirable places to be and be seen during the 2012 summer Olympics. The private residence will be open until the closing ceremony on 12 August.
