OMEGA has an unparalleled history in sports timekeeping. The first company ever appointed Official Timekeeper for all Olympic disciplines, OMEGA supplied 30 chronographs and counters for use at the Olympic Games held in Los Angeles in 1932. Such was the OMEGA timekeepers’ expertise that the brand with the Greek letter was chosen to serve as Official Timekeeper at twenty-one Olympic Games over the course of the 20th century—more than any other company.

The Torino 2006 Olympic Winter Games mark OMEGA’s return to its historic role as Official Timekeeper—and the record-breaking eleventh time the company has been called upon to assure the split-second accuracy and reliability of competition results at the Olympic Winter Games. To mark the occasion, OMEGA presents the Olympic Timeless Collection. Six striking chronographs celebrate the Olympic Games and recall OMEGA’s innovative contributions to the art and science of sports timekeeping.
The Olympic Timeless Collection recalls the very beginnings of OMEGA’s timekeeping exploits with a design that harks back to the chronographs produced by the brand in the 1930s and used at the 1932 Los Angeles Games. Each of the chronographs in the Olympic Timeless Collection features the red OMEGA name and symbol found on the original 1932 chronographs. Further underscoring OMEGA’s return to its traditional role at the Olympic Games are the Olympic rings symbol, the OMEGA name and symbol and the inscription “Official Timekeeper”, stamped on the case back. Perhaps the most striking feature of these Olympic Timeless Collection chronographs is one that also represents a remarkable first for OMEGA. An innovative application of nanotechnology has enabled OMEGA to integrate the most famous symbol of the Olympic Games into the design of the Olympic Timeless Collection. On each of the six watches, the five interlocking coloured rings are placed as the counterweight of the central seconds hand. Reproduced with extraordinary precision and fidelity, this historic symbol celebrates the Olympic Games and exemplifies OMEGA’s unparalleled record of innovation in watchmaking and sports timekeeping.
The Seamaster chronograph in the OMEGA Olympic Timeless Collection combines white Arabic numerals and red chronograph counter hands on a black dial protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Its distinctive Olympic look is underscored by the rhodium-plated Olympic Rings as the counterweight of the chronograph seconds hand. Its divers’ watch status is underscored by the robust case, the unidirectional rotating stainless-steel bezel, patented OMEGA helium escape valve and water resistance to 300 meters / 1000 feet guaranteed by a screw-in crown with O-ring gasket and decompression ring, screw-in pushers and a screw-in case back. The sporty look of this chronograph, which is enhanced by a tough, water-resistant rubber strap, belies the high-end technology inside. The Seamaster Chronograph of the OMEGA Olympic Timeless Collection uses the exclusive OMEGA calibre 3303 movement. This self-winding OMEGA chronograph movement is a certified chronometer and uses a column-wheel chronograph mechanism – the sign of a truly superior chronograph.
The Speedmaster Date in the OMEGA Olympic Timeless Collection has red chronograph hands and blued-steel hour, minute and small seconds hands set against a white dial. Available exclusively with a matching stainless-steel bracelet, it retains the typical Speedmaster feature of a tachometer scale engraved on the stainless-steel bezel and has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. This chronograph is powered by the OMEGA calibre 1152 self-winding chronograph movement, which has an exclusive rhodium-plated finish and a power reserve of 44 hours. The Speedmaster Date of the OMEGA Olympic Timeless Collection is water resistant to 30 metres / 100 feet.
Speedmaster Broad Arrow
The design of the Speedmaster Broad Arrow in the OMEGA Olympic Timeless Collection combines the red chronograph hands and the red OMEGA symbol and name with the traditional black dial of the Speedmaster, reminiscent of that of the legendary Speedmaster Professional “Moon Watch”. Incorporating the striking “broad arrow” hands found on the very first Speedmaster models, the Speedmaster Broad Arrow of the OMEGA Olympic Timeless Collection uses OMEGA’s high-end column-wheel chronograph movement, OMEGA calibre 3303. This exclusive OMEGA movement has a 55-hour power reserve, stop-seconds function and uses the OMEGA free sprung-balance to offer better regulating stability. The Speedmaster Broad Arrow of the OMEGA Olympic Timeless Collection is water resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet and is available exclusively with a matching stainless steel bracelet.
The Speedmaster Ladies’ of the OMEGA Olympic Timeless Collection derives from the original gents’ Speedmaster, launched in 1957 and later chosen by NASA for its manned voyages to the moon. The Ladies’ Speedmaster uses a reduced case size and retains the classic tachometric scale on the bezel. The hour markers on the mother-of-pearl dial appear in the official colours of the Olympic Games—yellow, blue, black, red, and green—and complement the coloured rings on the counterweight of the central seconds hand. The heart of this distinctive model is the OMEGA calibre 3220 self-winding chronograph calibre; the movement’s high-performance winding system ensures a power reserve of 40 hours. This Speedmaster Ladies’ of the OMEGA Olympic Timeless Collection is protected by a sapphire crystal and is water-resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet. Available exclusively with a white alligator leather strap that subtly underlines its feminine elegance.
De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph
The De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph of the OMEGA Olympic Timeless Collection has a sober white dial, elegantly set off by the thematic design reference to OMEGA and the Olympic Games. The De Ville Co-Axial collection represents the fine art of watchmaking in all respects. Its case design recalls the popular OMEGA models of the fifties; all models feature the revolutionary OMEGA Co-Axial Escapement, which offers better long-term accuracy. The De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph of the OMEGA Olympic Collection is powered by OMEGA calibre 3313, a self-winding chronograph movement with official chronometer certification and a 55-hour power reserve. Protected by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on the inside and water-resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet, it is available exclusively with a brown alligator leather strap and stainless-steel foldover clasp.
De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph Ladies’
The De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph Ladies’ of the OMEGA Timeless Collection is a tribute to the Olympic Games and a celebration of the fine art of watchmaking. The diamond-set bezel and refined mother-of-pearl dial set off Arabic numerals in the official colours of the Olympic Games, with a diamond briolette on the crown completing the luxury touch. Elliptical counters add a subtly feminine refinement of the popular OMEGA models of the fifties. This superb Olympic Timeless Collection De Ville is powered by the high-end calibre 3313 self-winding chronograph movement, which is fitted with the OMEGA Co-Axial Escapement for better long-term accuracy. The movement’s precision is attested by its chronometer certificate issued by the official Swiss chronometer testing institute COSC. It has a power reserve of 55 hours.
