“OMEGA’s timekeeping leaves no result in doubt, thanks to the unquestionable quality of today’s modern equipment.”

Official Timekeeper

Since the Diamond League was founded in 2010, OMEGA has proudly taken the role of Official Timekeeper at each of its annual track and field meetings in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North America. Throughout this time, OMEGA has served many of the world's most talented athletes during their finest moments.

THE VALUE OF TIMEKEEPING

Modern timekeeping is critical to the success of every sporting outcome. With competitors now separated by mere split seconds, it takes incredibly accurate and reliable equipment to determine the fractional differences between each athlete. Without the extreme dedication of timekeepers, sports as we know it would be impossible.

  • THE OMEGA STARTING BLOCKS

    Our starting blocks feature built-in sensors, a key component in false start detection. Each set has a loudspeaker linked to the start pistol, so all contestants hear the start signal at precisely the same time.

  • THE ELECTRONIC START SYSTEM

    In 2010, the old-fashioned starting pistol was replaced by a streamlined, futuristic device composed of a flash gun and a sound generation box. We now use this electronic start system at all athletics events.

  • THE SCAN’O’VISION MYRIA CAMERA

    Our Scan’O’Vision MYRIA photofinish camera is a combination of a time detector and a chronograph. Images are produced using a high-tech image-capture device that records up to 10,000 digital images per second!

  • OUR EYE-CATCHING SCOREBOARDS

    The scoreboards along the race course and at the finish line are operated by software enabling them to display text, pictures animations and videos. Their high resolution benefits live spectators and home viewers.
