Swatch Group Brands
Serving the Brands
Our specialists are responsible for negotiating and concluding contracts for timekeeping and scoring services on behalf of Swatch Group’s brands, which are famously associated with the world’s major sports. For more than 40 years, we have met their service and equipment needs.
In 1932, Omega was the first company to time every event at an Olympic Games. The partnership with the IOC has led to more than 80 years of innovation in sports timekeeping. We work with Omega at the Olympics and a dizzying array of high-profile aquatic and athletic events.
Swiss Timing’s collaboration with Longines includes the provision of timekeeping and data handling services for prestigious international equestrian competitions as well as privileged partnerships with the World Gymnastics Federation, the International Ski Federation, and the Commonwealth Games.
Tissot is involved with a broad spectrum of sports and games. Swiss Timing enjoys the challenge of supporting them, providing services to the International Basketball Federation and the National Basketball Association, the Continental International Cycling Union, the World Fencing and World Hockey Championships, the Asian Games, and the European Games, among others.
Luxury watch brand Blancpain returned to the world of motor sports in 2010 when it was named Official Timekeeper – with the participation of Swiss Timing – of the GT World Championships, organized by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA).
Certina is also actively involved in motor racing, particularly through its partnerships with the FIA World Rally Championship and the ADAC GT Masters. With Swiss Timing’s support, Certina is able to deliver the timekeeping technology and services necessary to meet the needs of these high-speed sports.
