As the official timekeeper of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Omega has played an important role in the Olympic Games for the 27th time since 1932. To celebrate the brand’s timing legend, from August 4th to August 10th, Omega held a special exhibition at the Hong Kong Harbour City Ocean Terminal.
This exhibition presents a wide range of historical and modern chronograph equipment, from a double chasing chronograph with a precision of 1 / 10th of a second in 1953 to the 2016 Rio Olympics which can capture the light of an image at a speed of 10,000 frames per second Induction end camera.
Also on display are a series of antique and new Omega Olympic series watches, from the classic watch launched in 1956 to the latest commemorative work released this year, including the hippocampus 300-meter diving watch ‘Rio 2016’ limited edition and Seahorse 150m AquaTerra watch. At the 1956 Melbourne Olympics in Australia, to celebrate the brand’s 25-year continuous Olympic timekeeping since 1932, Omega launched the ‘Seamaster 16’ 18K gold commemorative watch (SeamasterXVI18K), which is also the oldest timepiece displayed in this exhibition.
Visitors can also participate in various interactive games at the show, including dressing the winning athletes on the podium and taking pictures. (Photo / text watch home Xu Chaoyang)
