Olympics + Omega

October 5, 2009


With all of the excitement surrounding the recent Olympic announcements (yay, Rio!) I think it’s only appropriate to report on some related timepiece news.

If you didn’t know, Omega has been affiliated with the Olympics since the 1932 Los Angeles games when it was named ‘official timekeeper.’ Although the brand’s contract extended through the 2012 London games, last week they signed back on through at least 2020. The picture above is from the press conference given at the the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland.

And, let’s be honest: Most of us will never score an Olympic medal, but wearing an Omega is a good way to get a little piece of the action, whether gold or silver.
