While the countdown for the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 has started, Omega - official timekeeper of the Olympic Games since 1932 - has begun the celebrations with a new timepiece dedicated to the occasion.
Delivered inside a white presentation box, the Seamaster Diver 300M “Beijing 2022” Special Edition comes in a 42 mm case in stainless steel equipped with a grade 5 titanium bezel ring with a 60-minute diving scale in positive relief.
The sun-brushed blue ceramic [ZrO2] dial is protected by a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with antireflective treatment on both sides and characterised by laser-engraved waves. The rhodium-plated indexes and hands are filled with Super-LumiNova for enhanced readability in poor light conditions,.
A playful detail and a clear tribute to the Beijing 2022 event, five minute-markers - at 2, 4, 8, 10 and 12 o'clock - are created in the five colours of the Olympic Rings.
The solid caseback alternates polished and satin brushed surfaces and includes a stamped Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 emblem, perfectly aligned thanks to the patented NAIAD LOCK system. Water resistance is 300 metres / 1,000 feet.
The watch is powered by the self-winding Omega Co-Axial Calibre 8800 that achieved the Master Chronometer status passing the 8 rigorous tests set by METAS (The Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology). It guarantees an autonomy of 55 hours when fully wound.
Matched to a polished and brushed stainless steel bracelet including Omega’s patented extendable foldover rack-and-pusher with an extra diver extension, the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Beijing 2022 Special Edition ref. 5184.108.40.206.03.001 has a price of Euro 6,200 (incl. VAT) / US$ 6,150 (before sales taxes). omegawatches.com
