Omega continues its association with the Winter Olympics 2018

In 2018, OMEGA will fulfil its role as Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games for the 28th time in history. As the winter edition reaches PyeongChang in South Korea, OMEGA is celebrating with a collection of new watches designed to inspire the winner in us all.

Using the five colours of the Olympic Rings, the words “PYEONGCHANG 2018” have been inscribed on the Omega minute track with the number 18 aligning perfectly with the time indication. This superb 41.5 mm model is cased in stainless steel.

This 43.5 mm watch captures the colours of the South Korean flag with a polished blue ceramic dial and unidirectional bezel, blended with red rubber for the first 15 minutes. This theme is continued through the blue and red rubber strap.

On both models, the “Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018” logo is included on a sapphire crystal caseback. On the Planet Ocean, the words PLANET OCEAN and LIMITED EDITION have also been engraved in blue.

Both of these PyeongChang watches are limited to 2,018 pieces, reflecting the year of the upcoming Olympic Winter Games. For those who love the thrill of sport, as well as OMEGA’s rich timekeeping heritage, they are two fantastic pieces to own.
