To celebrate the upcoming Tokyo Olympics, Omega have unveiled a slew of new watches.
Having served on and off as the official timekeeper of the Olympics since 1932, Omega are continuing their role for the 29th time this year and to celebrate they’ve given us five limited edition watches to sink our teeth into.
To start us off is the 42mm Seamaster Diver 300M Co-Axial Master Chronometer (ref. 5126.96.36.199.04.001). The case is made from stainless steel and features a blue ceramic bezel with a white enamel diving scale. The dial is white ceramic with laser ingrained waves. All this combined creates a very nautical watch that is slick and not too flashy. A very nice, if not standard, sports watch.
Next up are three Seamaster Aqua Terra variants. Each feature a polished blue ceramic dial highlight with an added laser-engraved Tokyo 2020 pattern, which is essentially a wonky checkerboard. The ref. 5188.8.131.52.03.001 features a steel case and rubber strap and the ref. 5184.108.40.206.03.001 features a yellow gold case and a leather strap. Both watches are 41mm and have a transparent caseback. The final one is a 38mm ladies edition (ref. 5220.127.116.11.03.001) that also has a yellow gold case and blue leather strap.
The watches are fabulous, especially the yellow gold variant. The blue leather provides a striking contrast to the gold.
The last watch is the 39.5mm Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Co-Axial Master Chronometer (ref. 518.104.22.168.04.001). This one is limited to 2,020 pieces and features a stainless-steel case with a white ceramic dial. Omega have put in some Japanese motifs as well, including a red circular tip on the seconds hand to emulate the Japanese flag. The watch also features a white leather strap and a sapphire crystal caseback. It’s a funky and fresh looking watch that certainly is one of the highlights of this collection.
