With just one year until the opening of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022, as Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games OMEGA kicks off the celebrations with a new timepiece dedicated to the occasion.
Introducing the OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M “Beijing 2022” Special Edition.
Featuring a 42mm case crafted from stainless steel, the Seamaster Diver 300M “Beijing 2022” watch includes a unique grade 5 titanium bezel ring with a 60-minute diving scale in positive relief.
Displaying time across a sun-brushed blue ceramic [ZrO2] dial, owners will find laser-engraved waves across the dial, a nod to the maritime heritage of this iconic collection. Rhodium-plated indexes and hands are filled with Super-LumiNova for greater legibility when diving. As a special tribute to Beijing 2022, there are also five special minute-markers at the hours of 2, 4, 8, 10 and 12, with each one created in the five colours of the iconic Olympic Rings.
As you turn the watch, the polished and brushed caseback is stamped with the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 emblem. OMEGA’s patented NAIAD LOCK system keeps all the engravings in perfect alignment. Behind the caseback sits the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8800. This powerful movement and the entire watch have passed the strict tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), guaranteeing the industry’s highest standards of precision, performance and magnetic resistance.
Inside the special presentation box, the timepiece is set on a polished and brushed stainless steel bracelet including OMEGA’s patented extendable foldover rack-and-pusher with an extra diver extension.
OMEGA has been the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games since 1932. Beijing 2022 will mark the brand’s 30th occasion in the role.
