OMEGA Olympic Pocket Watch 1932 Empty OMEGA Olympic Pocket Watch 1932

The Olympics are upon us and once again Omega is the official timekeeper for the events. They’ve had the honor for over a span of 80 years since 1932 when the Games were in Los Angeles. It’s a heavy responsibility to be the officiator when the difference of thousands of a second determine whether an athlete goes home with a medal or nothing at all. Equipment malfunction is a no-no.

In commemoration of those first timekeepers, a few years ago OMEGA released the Olympic Pocket Watch 1932 that’s an exact replica of the original used in 1932. It seems an appropriate time to revisit this exclusive piece that represents a part of Olympic timing history.

The watch features a manual wind column-wheel chronograph with integrated rattrapante that has a power reserve of 32 hours. Sprucing up the rhodium-plated chronometer movement are Geneva waves and circular graining. Talk about finishing. OMEGA went all out for this one.
