OMEGA: 100 YEARS AS AN OFFICIAL TIMEKEEPER
OMEGA has acted as the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games for 27 times since the Games in Los Angeles in 1932. Starting pistol, touchpads for swimming competitions and the Scan'O'Vision MYRIA Photo Finish camera that allows to make 10,000 digital shots per second launched especially for the Olympics in Rio are the revolutionary OMEGA developments designed specifically for the world's major competition.
Now the company is the first global Olympic partner, which has prolonged its participation in the Olympic Movement until 2032, the President of the Swatch Group Nick Hayek, OMEGA General Manager Reinald Eshlimann and IOC President Thomas Bach stated at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne.
"We are happy and proud to continue this tradition until 2032, the anniversary 100th year of OMEGA's cooperation with the Olympic Games" - Nick Hayek, president of the Swatch Group, said.
IOC President Thomas Bach actively supported the prolongation of the OMEGA agreement with the committee: "OMEGA is the world leader in sports timing, so the prolonging our partnership until 2032 means that the Olympic movement can continue to count on professionalism."
