Omega Speedmaster 5-Counter Chronograph

May 07, 2008
Fans of sports and precision timekeeping are well-aware about Omega's long-term cooperation with the Olympic Games, highlighted by numerous pioneering developments in the field of sports timekeeping.

The year 2008 marks the brand's 23rd appearance as Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games at the upcoming 2008 Beijing Games. To celebrate the long-standing cooperation, the company has created a one-of-a-kind timepiece.

The Omega Speedmaster 5-Counter Chronograph is the world's first watch revealing a five-counter chronograph layout. The five counters on the watch dial, representing the iconic five rings of the Olympics, start from 3 o'clock - you will see a small seconds counter, a 7-day chronograph recorder, a day of the week indicator, a 12-hour chronograph recorder, and a 30-minute chronograph recorder.

The 44mm case of the new Omega watch incorporates a tachymeter bezel, and a sapphire crystal. The case is crafted from 18K red gold, 18K yellow gold, or stainless steel. The timepiece accommodates Omega's self-winding Calibre 3888 movement. The self-winding caliber offers a 52-hour power reserve. The mechanism comprises a column wheel and the highly acclaimed Omega Co-Axial Escapement.

The Omega Speedmaster 5-Counter has been inspired by the company's long-standing role as the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games, and 2008 Beijing Games in particular. The watch will be available innumbered limited editions, in each of the mentioned-above metals.
