This year is turning out to be a particularly significant one for Omega. First came the 50 th moon landing anniversary which the brand commemorated with a Special Collector’s Edition; and now, the brand is all set for the next big global sporting event: the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, which is exactly a year away!
Omega has served as official timekeeper of the games since 1932—and is set to return for the 29 th time next summer in Tokyo, home to the 2020 Olympics. To mark the occasion, Omega recently unveiled two new Tokyo 2020 Limited Edition watches, the Seamaster Aqua Terra Tokyo 2020 Limited Edition and the Seamaster Planet Ocean Tokyo 2020 Limited Edition.
Seamaster Aqua Terra Tokyo 2020 Limited Edition
Just like the athletes at the Olympic Games, the Seamaster Aqua Terra performs beautifully on land and on the water. The Seamaster Aqua Terra is equipped with the collection’s first ceramic dial, whose blue polished face is laser-engraved with the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games emblem. Housed in a 41 mm stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal caseback bearing a transferred version of the emblem, the model comes on a structured blue rubber strap and includes an additional stainless steel bracelet in its special presentation box. Limited to just 2,020 pieces, the watch comes ready for action on a structured blue rubber strap and includes an additional stainless steel bracelet in its special presentation box.
Inside, the timepiece is driven by the OMEGA Master Chronometer Calibre 8900, delivering the Swiss industry’s highest standard of precision and magnetic-resistance–exactly
what one would expect from an official timekeeper!
Seamaster Planet Ocean Tokyo 2020 Limited Edition
The 39.5 patriotic stainless steel Seamster has been crafted with a truly Japanese touch: On the white ceramic bezel ring, a diving scale features the number 20 filled with red liquid ceramic, as a tribute to the year of 2020. In addition, the tip of the watch’s special lollipop central seconds hand features a varnished red dot, as an homage to the Japanese flag that pops vividly against the backdrop of the polished white ceramic dial. Also limited to just 2,020 models, this timepiece is driven by the Omega Master Chronometer Calibre 8800 and features a sapphire crystal caseback with a transferred Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games emblem. It is delivered on a white leather strap and includes a stainless steel bracelet and additional NATO strap in its presentation box.
