The legacy of OMEGA has been based on innovative watchmaking since its foundation in 1848. For more than 168 years the brand has been synonymous with excellence, innovation and precision. OMEGA has always been defined and shaped by a pioneering spirit with its conquests in outer space and the depths of the oceans. Today OMEGA is still writing history with its technical advances and imagination in the most diverse areas such as sports timekeeping, anti-magnetic technology, and design.
Sports timekeeping has been part of OMEGA's history for more than a century. The brand has been responsible for timekeeping at the most prestigious sports events in the world – notably the Olympic games for more than 80 years – and for the development of the instruments which makes it possible for technology to keep up with the constantly increasing performance of the athletes.
On the occasion of the Olympic games in Rio, a special exhibition of OMEGA will be held from 3rd to 29th of August 2016 at Les Ambassadeurs in Zurich. Come by and see how OMEGA has been capturing the dreams of the athletes fighting for victory for more than 80 years as an official timekeeper of the Olympic games.
