Omega Introduces two Olympic Speedmaster Chronoscope

The Olympic Games Paris 2024 will kick off in less than 100 days. With athletes primed and anticipation mounting, Omega, the Official Timekeeper, is commemorating the occasion with the launch of the new Speedmaster Chronoscope, bedecked in the vibrant colours of the competition.



This latest 43mm series presents four distinct models, all echoing the gold, black, and white palette synonymous with the Olympic Games Paris 2024. Choices range from a full stainless-steel variant with an anodized aluminium bezel to one featuring a ceramic bezel and an 18K Moonshine™ Gold case and bracelet—a proprietary alloy by Omega renowned for its enduring lustre and subtle golden hue.



Each timepiece features a silvery-white opaline dial adorned with three dark grey timing scales styled in a 1940s-inspired "snail" pattern. These scales encompass a tachymeter, pulsometer, and telemeter, providing various measurement functionalities right on the wrist. It's a fitting tribute to Omega's meticulous and comprehensive timekeeping legacy at the Olympic Games—a role it has proudly fulfilled since 1932.



Front-facing details also command attention, including blackened subdials, Arabic numerals in 18K Moonshine™ Gold, leaf-shaped hands and subdial hands coated with Moonshine™ Gold.


Flipping the watch reveals its unmistakable tie to the Olympic Games through a striking commemorative caseback. The stamped medallion, set against a frosted background, showcases a mirror-polished Paris 2024 emblem alongside stamped engravings of "Paris 2024" and the iconic Olympic Rings.



Ensuring precision down to the second, the Speedmaster Chronoscope Paris 2024 is powered by the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 9908/9909. This movement, certified by METAS, meets the highest precision, performance, and magnetic resistance benchmarks within the Swiss watchmaking industry.



Two additional editions complete the collection: a stainless-steel variant paired with a perforated black calfskin leather strap and another featuring 18K Moonshine™ Gold on a classic black calfskin leather strap.
