From February the 9th to the 25th, Omega will be trusted to capture the results and measure the performances at PyeongChang 2018, ensuring that every athlete, spectator and judge has the most reliable timekeeping at hand. And, from March the 9th, the brand will continue its role at the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympics Games.
Altogether, the Omega team will measure and record more than more than 380,000 different times, distances and scores. These results will determine the gold, silver and bronze medal winners in every discipline, including alpine skiing, cross country and Nordic combined, ski cross and snowboard cross, speed skating, short track speed skiing, bobsleigh, freestyle and snowboard – half pipe, ice hockey and Big Air event - a new Olympic Games sport.
New technology includes “Stromotion”, to break down the action into sections and take a closer look. Trajectory video footage will now neatly reveal the evolution of an athlete's movement or technique to show you exactly how good it was. And Omega’s Simulcam technology will help to enhance the replay action of numerous events in PyeongChang. By laying an image of one competitor over another, it will be possible for replays to compare the techniques and performances of different teams.
Omega has created two special editions of its Seamaster wristwatches to commemorate the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games. Both are limited to 2018 pieces. Designed to mark the countdown, the Seamaster Planet Ocean "PyeongChang 2018" is guaranteed to perform with world-class precision long after that great event has come and gone. Using the five colours of the iconic Olympic Rings, the words “PYEONGCHANG 2018” have been inscribed on the minute track of the blue PVD dial of the Seamaster Aqua Terra “PyeongChang 2018” Limited Edition.
