OMEGA celebrates its role as the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games
OMEGA, the luxury Swiss watch brand, has been a leader in the field of watchmaking since its inception in 1848. With precision at its core, the brand has also earned the trust of the world’s best athletes through its role as the “Official Timekeeper of the Olympics Games”, a position it has fulfilled on 26 occasions since 1932.
With OMEGA now poised to continue its long tradition of timekeeping at Rio 2016, it celebrated the upcoming occasion at a special event in Bangalore with one of the world’s top Badminton players – Saina Nehwal. As a gesture of good luck, Mr. PH Narayanan, Brand Manager of OMEGA India, presented Saina Nehwal with the special Omega watches.
Commenting on her association with the brand, Saina said, “There is a natural connection with OMEGA as it stands for precision, excellence and accuracy which are also the cornerstones of every sport. I am honoured to be here today for a brand that has been timing the greatest sporting event for the last 84 years.”
As a tribute to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, OMEGA launched three timepieces which are inspired by the glory, triumph and unbreakable unity that brings the world together - THE SEAMASTER DIVER 300M "RIO 2016", THE SEAMASTER BULLHEAD "RIO 2016", and THE SPEEDMASTER MARK II "RIO 2016".
