Omega Geneve Ref. 166.0217 ‘Bloody Mary’

Most people know the cocktail Bloody Mary, first created in about 1920. The name it was given then was ‘Bucket of blood’ or ‘Red snapper’. A reference to Queen Maria I from England. Later on, became the Bloody Mary. But the reference to the cocktail and the queen is not so cozy or beautiful, so we want to explain the name of this Omega Geneve a little bit differently.

Did you know that there was a sprint motorcycle called Bloody Mary? In 1961 E.G Potter from Itaca Michigan produced it. It was a frame of a Harley Davidson from 1946 with a 4638CC Chevrolet motor. It reached 206km/h in 400 metres. That is what vintage is about, something of a certain age what is rare and not producede anymore.

So thats why we gave it the nickname ‘Bloody Mary’, a golden Omega Geneve watch with a red rare dial from about 1974. Not for everyones taste, but we really love it!
