The 2016 Summer Olympics is a little more than two weeks away and much speculation has been made if the host city Rio de Janeiro, Brazil will be ready for this major event featuring more than 10,500 athletes from over 206 nations.
The games will feature 28 Olympic sports in everything from track and field to swimming and water related sports. Golf and rugby sevens are two new competitions added to the games this year.
While many things change with each and every Olympic completion, one thing that has remained the same since 1932: Omega Watches have been the official timekeeper of almost every Olympic completion and will be present at this year’s completion in Rio de Janeiro.
Precise, time-keeping accuracy is nothing new to prestigious Swiss watch brand founded in 1848 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. The brand has been revered for their premium crafted timepieces and provided the first watch worn on the moon in 1969: the Omega Speedmaster, during the historic Apollo 11 space mission.
