OMEGA and IOC partnership extended through 2032

Swatch Group CEO, Nick Hayek and IOC President Thomas Bach setting a new Olympic record

Nobody knows who will host the Games of the XXXV Olympiad in 2032, but one thing is now known for sure, Omega will be taking care of timekeeping. The 2032 Games will mark 100 years since the start of OMEGA’s relationship with the event, which dates back to the 1932 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. Since then, Omega has served as official timekeeper of the Games 27 times and today they have an expertise in timing and measuring 28 summer sports and 14 winter sports.

The deal will continue the commitment by OMEGA to provide state-of-the-art timing, scoring, in-venue results system, equipment and broadcast graphics services, which are critical for the success of the Olympic Games.

For more about timekeeping at the Olympics, check out our exclusive interview with Alain Zobrist, CEO of Omega Timing about the technology developed for the Rio Games.

As a graphic designer, I'm fascinated by the crossroads between technology and aesthetics. Horology is one of these crafts, where art and engineering come together to produce mechanical wonders that grace the eye. WatchPaper was born from the desire to create an online tool where I can share my passion for watches.
