Omega: Olympic’s Official TimekeeperJan 21, 2010 @ 11:00 am
Omega has been the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games since 1932 and will continue to time the world’s greatest athletes through 2020. To commemorate the upcoming Games, they’ve created the a limited-edition watch, the Vancouver 2010 (top). “Together the red and white recall the colors of the Canadian flag,” said Stephen Urquhart, Omega’s CEO. Also in their Olympic-themed collection is the dandy Pocket Watch 1932 (bottom, left) and the sparkly Speedmaster (bottom, right). “Timekeeping is an essential part of the excitement generated by the games—no matter where the winners on the platforms come from, the performance is timed by Omega,” said Urquhart.
