With ongoing speculation over whether the delayed Tokyo Olympics will go ahead in 2021, it’s easy to forget that the winter edition is taking place just next year. However, Omega, who have been the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games since 1932, are more than prepared for the occasion. This extends not only from its high-tech precision timekeeping to keep the events on track, but with the release of a special timepiece to commemorate the 30th occasion that the watchmaker will take on this important role.
The Seamaster Diver 300M ‘Beijing 2022’ Special Edition has a suitably icy feel, featuring a 42mm stainless-steel case enhanced with a robust, grade-5 titanium bezel ring. The look is completed with a cool, sun-brushed blue ceramic dial, adorned with laser-engraved waves. Meanwhile, special touches that nod to the Beijing 2022 come in the form of five markers in the colours of the famous Olympic rings, as well as the emblem of the games stamped on the case back.
As you’d expect from the watchmaker trusted with timing some of sport’s most important moments, the watch also offers the highest levels of performance. It comes powered by the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8800, which has been tested to the strictest standards of precision, reliability and resistance to shock and magnetism. The watch comes fitted with a comfortable and practical stainless-steel bracelet, including an extra diver extension should you wish to take on your own underwater sporting adventures.
