Two weeks ago, Omega invited me to Sochi to check out a few events at the Winter Games. The experience itself was pretty exhilarating, having been neither to the Olympics (anywhere) or to Russia before. But, to me, the most memorable take away of my time in Russia was actually not any of the athletic events, but rather the time I spent with two old men. One of them, 83, and an American, the other 79, and a Russian. They both wore gold Omegas, and they’d been friends since the mid-70s. But these aren’t your averages grandpas. No, no. Both of these guys were spacemen of the highest order and their four decade relationship is the stuff of lore. Here is a little look into the shared lives of General Tom Stafford of the United States military and space program, and Alexey Leonov, Russian Cosmonaut, joint commanders of the history making Apollo-Soyuz mission.
