Omega’s role as the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games began in 1932 so it is fair to say that the role is theirs to keep. If you’ve never heard of Omega or have just emerged from a childlike state, Omega’s horological influence goes back to 1903. It’s widely accepted as the sporting man’s Swiss luxury watch, with official ties to NASA (the Speedmaster, the first moon watch in 1969) and the watch Bond has worn since 1995’s Goldeneye.
The models are available in the five colours of the famous Rings of the Olympic Games. Only 2,032 versions of each model have been created, representing the year 2032, which will be OMEGA’s 100th year as Official Timekeeper. The 39.5 mm watches have been created in stainless steel, with the Limited Edition number engraved on the side of each case.
The white domed dial of each watch, which includes an easily readable railway minute track and contrasting blackened hands, is inspired by the OMEGA stopwatches used at the 1948 Olympic Games in London. There is also a colourful pulse reader encircling each dial.
