This might not be the luxury timepiece to wear every day but is an example of the type of sporting memorabilia available at auction. The Omega stopwatch 310 was produced by a South London company in association with the timepiece brand for the 1972 Munich Olympics.
The consignor, who worked for the production company, says: “This was early days for using electronic timing in sport…so it was a requirement that traditional stop watches were to be used as a back up to the electronics.”
This is one of a pair going under the hammer at Stacey’s from December 16-17, each with an estimate of £150-250.
