On your marks, get set, countdown!
Le Locle/ Incheon, September 1, 2013. A little over one year before the opening ceremony of the 17Th Asian Games Incheon 2014 – where Tissot serves as the Games’ Official Timekeeper, Tissot and IAGOC have unveiled the official countdown clock of the Games.
Located in front of Incheon City Hall, the symbolic focal point of the City of Incheon, this high-tech countdown will mark the key moments to the beginning of the 17th Asian Games, reaching zero as the opening ceremony begins.
The IAGOC Secretary General, Mr Kyung Sang Kwon and Mr Song Younggil, Mayor of Incheon Metropolitan City, were given the honour of inaugurating the revolutionary countdown, which serves as further proof of Tissot’s technological skills and innovative spirit. This dynamic creation consists of four cubes rotating at different speeds. The cubes act as a permanent reminder to visitors of the days, hours, minutes and seconds remaining until the start of the Games on September 19.
Tissot and the IAGOC are working hand in hand to ensure the delivery of vital timing, scoring and results services and ensure the smooth running of all 36 disciplines of the 17th Asian Games. This countdown clock is the first of many examples of their in-depth collaboration for the Games, which promise to put on an unmissable show.
