Closing Shop... High Times... Time on Skates

Anthony Nak, the 11-year-old CFDA Award-winning jewelry brand based in Austin, Tex., is closing.

TIME ON SKATES: Just in the nick of time, Omega has signed Apolo Anton Ohno to serve as an ambassador for the brand. Ohno, the U.S. short course speed skating star, is a three-time Olympian and a top contender at the 2010 Games, which opened Friday. He has qualified for three individual events and one relay event, and if he captures two medals, will surpass Bonnie Blair as the U.S.’ most decorated Winter Olympian. As part of his deal with Omega, Ohno will wear the company’s Seamaster Planet Ocean Olympic Timeless Collection Chronograph and will visit the watch brand’s newly opened boutique in Vancouver following his races. He also will visit the Omega flagship in New York City at the conclusion of the Games. Omega has been the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games since 1932.
