Especially observant fans will most likely have noticed the horological brand, which signifies Omega’s official involvement, as they are serving as the designated timekeeper for these games. Omega has been busy during these winter games as they have introduced new timing equipment for the ice hockey.

By the time Sochi 2014 draws to its close, Omega will have measured around  650,000 times across many different disciplines, utilised more than 200 tonnes of timekeeping equipment, and extended more than 70 kilometres of suitable cabling to achieve their infallible results.

Omega are constantly called upon for their reliable time keeping in the Olympic games, and they were the very first company to be called upon to serve as the official time keeper for each and every game, this took place in the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics. This year signifies the 26th occasion that Omega have been appointed the important responsibility of time keeping.
