Omega is on a roll and how! Not only have they continued their age-old tradition since 1932 of being the official timekeeper of the Olympics, but they also have been associated with the sport of skating in more than one way. From the 1992 Winter Games onwards, Omega had introduced the Scan-O-Vision system for speed skating to digitally measure time to the nearest thousandth of a second for skaters crossing the finish line. And now, the speed skating star from the U.S., Apolo Anton Ohno, will spot the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Olympic Timeless Collection Chronograph through our Vancouver Olympics!
After winning his sixth Olympic medal this year, the most celebrated American athlete at the Winter Games was appointed as the new ambassador from the matchmaking giants before the games’ start. One more win and he can conquer the world! As a brand ambassador, he is touted to visit Omega boutique in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Omega’s flagship boutique in New York City.
