Olympic Timeless collection
Six classic timepieces and the world premiere
of the Speedmaster 5-Counters Chronographs
The Watch Quote™ - July 29th, 2008
The precision chronographs in the Olympic Timeless Collection pay special tribute to the Games of the XXIX Olympiad in Beijing and to Omega's key contributions to the art and science of sports timekeeping. The watches recall the chronographs used at the 1932 Los Angeles Games when Omega was named Official Timekeeper for the first time.
Six of the models in the Collection feature the Arabic numerals and the red OMEGA name and logo found on those early models and share an extraordinarily striking feature: the five interlocking coloured Olympic rings are mounted on the counterweights of the central chronograph seconds hand.
The Collection also includes a stunning world premiere: the Speedmaster 5-Counters Chronographs are the first mechanical wristwatches ever to have five counters displayed on their dials… even more remarkably, the five black counters are arranged to form the Olympic rings. The 5-Counters Chronographs are visual and technological masterpieces.
Each chronograph in the Olympic Timeless Collection has the Olympic rings symbol, the Omega name and logo and the inscription “Official Timekeeper” stamped on the case back, further reflecting Omega's historic connections to the Olympic Games.
The remarkable watches in the Olympic Timeless Collection salute the Games of the XXIX Olympiad in Beijing and commemorate Omega's peerless record of innovation in watchmaking and sports timekeeping.
