OMEGA are a valued Olympic sponsor and official Olympic timekeeper
Prestige Swiss watchmaker OMEGA was the first company to be entrusted with the official timekeeping of all disciplines at the Los Angeles Olympic Games in 1932. Since this time, OMEGA has held official timekeeper status at an unprecedented 24 Olympic Games, including Melbourne in 1956.
Among the 663 chronographs and other timekeeping devices that OMEGA dispatched to Melbourne at this time, was the world’s first semi-automatic swimming timer with digital display. OMEGA even launched a watch in Melbourne’s honour to commemorate the brand’s history-making achievements during the 1956 Games.
OMEGA will continue its all-important timekeeping role at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games and Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
