News & Trends: Whether you'll be watching from the sidelines or the comfort of your own home. Brands including Omega, Ralph Lauren, Oakley, and more have designed unique 2010 Winter Olympic Collections to celebrate the time honored sporting competition.
OMEGA is serving as the Official Olympic Timekeeper for the 24th time at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver and will be carrying on a legacy dating back to the 1932 Los Angeles Olympic Games. The Seamaster Diver 300m "Vancouver 2010" Limited Edition watches commemorate the Winter Games this season and OMEGA's long relationship with the Olympics. These striking watches feature white lacquered dials and red-anodized aluminum bezel rings. The bold contrasting colors recall the Canadian flag with its proud red maple leaf against a stark white background. The white dials are also reminiscent of the snow and ice, which will play such an important role in the 2010 Winter Games. This and other Olympic inspired pieces can be found online at the Omega Store.
