The official timekeeper of the games – only a year away
If you’re not excited yet about the next Olympic Games, you will be when you see these new limited edition timepieces from Omega. As the official timekeeper of the Olympics on 28 occasions since 1932, Omega has developed sophisticated timekeeping technologies and recorded many feats of human endeavour.
To celebrate its involvement in the event in Tokyo, which starts on July 24, 2020, Omega has just released the Seamaster Aqua Terra Tokyo 2020 Limited Edition and Seamaster Planet Ocean Tokyo 2020 Limited Edition. These are available now.
The mainly-blue Aqua Terra has a 41mm stainless steel case, powered by an Omega Master Chronometer Calibre 8900. It also features the collection’s first ceramic dial, in blue with a laser-engraved Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games emblem. There is a structured blue rubber strap as standard, with an additional stainless steel bracelet included.
The white-and-silver Planet Ocean has a 39.5mm stainless steel case, with a white ceramic dial and bezel ring, and an Omega Master Chronometer Calibre 8800 inside. The number 20 on the bezel has been filled with red liquid ceramic in honour of Tokyo 2020, and there is a red dot on the end of the central seconds hand as a nod to the Japanese flag. It has a white leather strap, but also comes with a stainless steel bracelet.
Both watches have a sapphire crystal caseback with a Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games emblem and are limited to 2,020 pieces. Prices are around AED21,913 for the Aqua Terra, and AED26,068 for the Planet Ocean. Omega boutiques are located in shopping malls throughout Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
