OMEGA – SEAMASTER OLYMPIC GAMES
ON THE PODIUM
To celebrate the 29th Olympic Games, where Omega is the official timekeeper, the brand has released a collection in the Olympic ring colours.
Black, yellow, green, blue and red. These five colours are displayed on the interlaced rings of the Olympic flag, representing the five continents of the participating athletes. This universalism is what Omega seeks to highlight with an original collection in a limited edition: the Seamaster Olympic Games. Each colour appears on the logo, the second hand and the strap. The design of the timepieces in the collection is inspired by different models from the brand’s history. The result? On the curved dial, all the time information stands out clearly, guaranteeing optimal readability. Sports-style hands point towards large indices on a white minute track around the outside of the dial. The numerals of the hours with their remarkable typography ideally contrast with the deep black central disc. A pulsometer in the form of coloured edging surrounds the dial. It is divided into three intervals of 20 seconds each and can be used to count the number of heart beats per minute after you run the 100 metres or any other physical exercise.
The 39.5 cm steel case contains the Master Chronometer 8800 movement. The officially certified chronometer calibre provides the Seamaster with 55 hours of power reserve.
Omega will be the official Olympic timekeepers until 2032. This figure was chosen for the number of pieces made in each colour. On an anodised ring on the back of the watch are engraved all the host cities that have been part of Omega’s Olympic history from 1932 to 2028.
