28th time in history, OMEGA is set to fulfil its role as official timekeeper of olympics games

Dubai, UAE, January 8, 2018:  In 1988, the Olympic Games arrived in Seoul, where the best athletes performed on the world's greatest stage. 30 years later, the event is back in South Korea once again. This time, it's the Olympic Winter Games which are in focus. The sports are different and the athletes have changed. But thanks to an ongoing history of excellence, the Official Timekeeper remains very much the same.

OMEGA first served as Official Time- keeper of the Olympic Winter Games in 1936, when the event was held in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. For that occasion, a single technician was sent with just 27 OMEGA stopwatches used to time every second. Over the past 82 years since then, OMEGA has continued to develop its technology and hone its expertise and, today, the brand has an unrivalled reputation in timekeeping.  

Now, for the 28th time in history, OMEGA is set to fulfil its role as Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games. The brand's 
presence in PyeongChang will include 300 timekeepers supported by 350 trained volunteers, 230 tons of equipment including 30 public and 90 sports scoreboards, and many kilometres of cables and optical fibre.

From February the 9th to the 25th, OMEGA will be trusted to capture the results and measure the performances at PyeongChang 2018, ensuring that every athlete, spectator and judge has the most reliable timekeeping at hand. And, from March the 9th, the brand will continue its role at the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Games.

Dreams are ready to be realised and the starting pistols are ready to fire. It's time to enjoy the show!
