OMEGA IN 1960
In 1960, the Olympic games of Rome were held. Omega was the official timekeeper, as in all Olympic games. This year was different, the ancient city of Rome was introduced to Omega’s electronic scoreboards. The Olympic games were broadcasted on television for the first time and that pressure meant that Omega had to triple its timekeeper staff. The winning margin at the 100 meters showed that timekeeping was essential that year. The winner won by a just 0.1 seconds!
