Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope: Precise Timekeeping for Paris 2024 Olympics

The Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope: A Timepiece Crafted for the Paris 2024 Olympics

As the world eagerly anticipates the upcoming Olympic Games in Paris 2024, Omega, the Official Timekeeper, has unveiled a special edition of its iconic Speedmaster Chronoscope. This remarkable timepiece not only pays homage to the prestigious event but also showcases Omega’s unparalleled expertise in precision timekeeping.

Celebrating 100 Days to Paris 2024

With just 100 days remaining until the start of the Paris 2024 Olympics, Omega has introduced a new series of the Speedmaster Chronoscope, each meticulously crafted to capture the essence of the competition. Available in four distinct models, the collection features the gold, black, and white colourway of the Olympic Games, a nod to the event’s official colour scheme.

Technical Specifications and Design

At the heart of the Speedmaster Chronoscope Paris 2024 lies the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 9908 / 9909, a testament to Omega’s commitment to delivering the highest standards of precision and performance. Certified by METAS, the Swiss watch industry’s governing body, this movement ensures unparalleled accuracy and magnetic resistance.

The 43mm case, available in both stainless steel and 18K Moonshine™ Gold, showcases Omega’s exceptional craftsmanship. The anodized aluminium bezel or the ceramic bezel, depending on the model, adds a touch of elegance and durability to the timepiece.

The silvery white opaline dial is the true showstopper, featuring three dark grey timing scales in a 1940’s “snail” design. The tachymeter, pulsometer, and telemeter scales offer a wide range of measurements, perfectly aligning with the precise timekeeping demands of the Olympic Games.

Complementing the dial are the blackened subdials, 18K Moonshine™ Gold Arabic numerals, and leaf-shaped hands and subdial hands that are also Moonshine™ Gold coated. These details not only enhance the timepiece’s visual appeal but also pay tribute to Omega’s rich heritage.

A Commemorative Caseback

Turning the Speedmaster Chronoscope Paris 2024 over reveals a striking commemorative caseback. The stamped medallion, crafted with a frosted base and a mirror-polished Paris 2024 logo, serves as a testament to the watch’s connection to the upcoming Olympic Games. The stamped words “Paris 2024” and the iconic Olympic Rings complete this celebratory design, ensuring that each owner will forever cherish this luxurious homage to the XXXIII Olympiad.

Two additional editions in the Speedmaster Chronoscope Paris 2024 collection are available, including a stainless steel model on a perforated black calfskin leather strap and an 18K Moonshine™ Gold version on a standard black calfskin leather strap.

A Timeless Tribute to the Olympic Spirit

The Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope Paris 2024 is not just a remarkable timepiece; it is a symbol of the enduring partnership between Omega and the Olympic Games. As the Official Timekeeper since 1932, Omega has played a crucial role in capturing the precise moments that have defined athletic excellence throughout history. With this special edition, the brand continues to uphold its legacy, delivering a timeless tribute to the spirit of the Olympic Games.
