Countdown on for Buenos Aires

Omega, the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games for the past 86 years, unveiled today the countdown clock for the Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018.

The unveiling ceremony was held near the iconic Obelisk in downtown Buenos Aires, which will be the epicentre for the opening of Buenos Aires 2018 in an outdoor ceremony that will capture the whole planet’s attention.

The Omega countdown clock, which stands at six metres high, was inspired by the Floralis Generica, a metal sculpture in Buenos Aires that was also used as a source of inspiration for the emblem of the Youth Olympic Games, which will take place from October 6th-18th in the Argentine capital.
