Omega Watches: The official timekeeper of the 2012 London Olympics

Omega Watches at London Olympics in 1948

Omega watches has a long history with the Olympics. They first served as official timekeepers at the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics. The image above shows Omega watches serving as official timekeepers once again, this time at the 1948 London Olympic games shortly after World War II.

This is why this year is so special for Omega watches. Omega has played a major role throughout the years by recording the official times for many athletes' competitions. It is safe to say this role requires meticulous attention to detail to ensure accurate timekeeping and of coarse a love for sports.

Omega Watches at London Olympics in 2012

So how much real gold in an Olympic gold medal?

Not much. Actually, about 1.34% of real gold can be found in these first prize medals. Not to mention about 90% of it is silver and only a minute percentage is comprised of copper. 

Did anyone actually think they were made of all gold? If we were to consider them all gold and look at the price per gram, these hefty medals would be worth over $21,000 each! Although these medals are not worth that amount, they are definitely priceless for many athletes.
