Omega Seamaster Olympic Games Watch Collection

In honor of Omega’s 86th year as the official timekeeper of the Olympics, the Seamaster Olympic Games Collection now looks set to take the market by storm. The Olympic Games are underway in Pyeongchang, South Korea, so this couldn’t be a more appropriate time for Omega to make its move. This Seamaster comes in five different color variations and when put together next to each other are very symbolic of the Olympic logo. Each of the different varieties of this watch is symbolic of each of the Olympic ring colors, which are blue, yellow, black, green, and red. The dial of the watch has the five-ring logo on it, to further indicate that this is a timepiece made for the most important sporting event in history.

The stopwatch design language is very appealing to both the watch collector and the sporty watch wearer. Although the piece commemorates Omega’s vast history as official timekeeper, the watch itself isn’t fully decked out with Olympic branding, logos, or other such nuances. Instead, the overall design and appeal of this watch is in the collectibility of the piece and the long history of Omega’s Seamaster collection. This limited edition model of the Seamaster is very appealing to look at, easily read, and an impressive yet unusual watch to say the least. Inside the watch is the Co-Axial Master Chronometer movement which, thanks to elegant radiant decoration is sure to catch the eye of any audience member, whether in the stands or performing on the field.

A watch of this magnitude is well equipped with a 39.5mm steel case for longevity and durability, and has the simple and basic design of most other standard Seamasters. The color-coordinated pulse scale, bold Arabic numerals, large date display, and the Olympic logo are sure to catch anyone’s eye even at a distance.

Additionally, the perforated leather straps with matching color accents, up to 60 meters of water resistance, an in-house calibre 8800 movement, and 55 hours of power reserve give this watch functionality and durability above all else.

The date is displayed at 6 o’clock and, as with the standard Seamaster, the Omega Seamaster lettered logo is printed just below 12 o’ clock, with the word ‘Seamaster’ printed in a color that matches the strap. On the back of the watch case is an encircled list of the Olympic host cities in which Omega has been the Official Timekeeper.

With five different variations of this piece, any collector is sure to want to get their hands on all of them, and since these pieces are limited editions, availability will be scarce. The release date of this watch has yet to be announced, and only 2,032 pieces in each color will be sold. Considering the limited edition and small number of watches to be sold, the piece’s price tag of $5,400 doesn’t seem to be so steep. For more info, visit Omega online.
