There are a few possible stories and one story goes that Omega made these watches with special Olympic Cross of Merits dials and started shipping them out to the dealers. However there was almost an immediate re-call as it transpired that they did not have permission to use the Olympic logo on the dial. So they were all pulled back and reissued with standard Omega XV1 dials. 

Another stories states that these were specially commissioned for those who has contribution towards but also as a celebration of the brand receiving the Olympic Cross of Merit at the previous event for ’Outstanding service to the world of sports’. Naturally, this watch had to be event that proudly displayed the award.
The third stories are that these were made for the Olympic participants or winners.
