Just in time for the Tokyo 2020 games, Omega adds new Olympics-inspired watches to their long history with the competition. Since first partnering with the Olympics as official timekeeper in 1932, Omega’s accuracy has kept the games punctual 29 times over almost a century.
But the brand never just stays on the sidelines and this year they’re going for gold. And with five fresh models for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics dropping this week, Omega is sure to leave their competition in the dust. Here’s everything you need to know about the new additions:
Seamaster Aqua Terra Tokyo 2020
Just like brand ambassador and American swimming legend Michael Phelps, the Aqua Terra boasts plenty of gold. Available in three different versions, two in 18K yellow gold and one limited edition stainless steel, the timepiece is perfect for before-competition dinners and mid-game dives. All models sport polished blue ceramic dials laser-engraved with an asymmetric checkerboard design inspired by the Tokyo 2020 emblem. Turn the watch over to view the impeccable machinations of its METAS certified calibre beneath an open sapphire caseback and the Tokyo 2020 crest.
The yellow gold Aqua Terra comes in 41mm and 38mm options held by blue leather bands, for a dressy, glamorous feel. The limited edition stainless steel diverges with a blue rubber strap and an additional stainless steel bracelet included. Better pick yours up soon as there are only 2,020 pieces available.
Seamaster Planet Ocean “Tokyo 2020” Limited Edition
Embracing the host location, the Planet Ocean is inspired by the iconic red whites of the Japanese flag. Also limited to 2,020 pieces, the Planet Ocean’s white ceramic bezel ring and varnished dial are strikingly minimalist and refined. Small shots of red on the 20 minute marker and the dot of the second hand (like the dot on the Japanese flag) infuse a fun flash of color.
Seamaster Diver 300M Tokyo 2020
The simplest of the watches, the Diver 300M stays true to the Seamaster’s classic dependability and elegance. Resting between the 42mm stainless steel case and white ceramic dial engraved with fine grey waves is an immaculately crafted calibre 8800 that can withstand magnetic field up to 15,000 gauss. For embellishment, a blue ceramic bezel rings the timepiece and the back boasts the Tokyo 2020 emblem layered over sapphire crystal. The durable watch also comes with a 5-year warranty, like all the other pieces in the collection.
