A stunning tribute to OMEGA's proud tradition of sports timekeeping, the Olympic Official Timekeeper collection deserves a podium of its own. On timekeeping devices; a clear, bold display is essential. With their striking lacquered white dials and blue steel hands, The Olympic Official Timekeeper Co-Axial Chronographs draw on this practical design consideration, to create timepieces that are both subtly elegant and fit for purpose.
It takes a certain amount of confidence to name a watch the Olympic Official Timekeeper. But there's no doubt OMEGA has earned the right to do so. The official timekeeper for almost every Olympic Games since 1932, OMEGA has taken sports timekeeping from the chronograph stopwatches of the 30's to the most state-of-the-art data handling and timekeeping technology in the world.
"…a collection to celebrate OMEGA's proud timekeeping history …"
With their lacquered white dials, the Olympic Official Timekeepers make quite a first impression. The steel blue hands and elegant chronographs also draw the eye, but a closer look reveals a subtle touch of red: a transferred OMEGA logo in vintage style.
As always, ultimate glory is limited to the select few. Only 188 units of each watch in the collection will be produced. The caseback on each watch is engraved with the five iconic rings of the Olympic Games, encircled with the words 'Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games'. The limited edition number of the watch completes this circle.
All three Olympic Official Timekeepers are cased in gold. There is a 38mm watch in 18k white gold and two 39mm editions in 18k yellow gold and 18k pink gold. The yellow and pink gold watches are complimented by a brown leather strap. The white gold watch features a black leather strap, attached to a fixed 18k white gold T-bar, with 3-hinged lugs in olive shape.
In 1932, OMEGA was the first brand ever called upon to time every event at the Olympic Games. Today, we have the expertise and experience to time and measure all 28 summer sports (or 14 winter sports) simultaneously. What a challenge. What an honour !
