Omega just unleashes a new batch of Olympic-themed Seamasters that further celebrate their 86-year association with the sporting event.
The retro-y dial has Olympic branding limited to a tasteful minimum – interlocking rings discreetly placed at six o’clock – with design cues inspired by a stopwatch developed by Omega for the 1976 games in Montreal.
It’s powered by a Master Chronometer cal. 8800 movement with a 55-hour power reserve that’s housed in a 39.5mm steel case with an AR-coated sapphire crystal and a sapphire crystal case back that shows off all the inner workings. The case back is framed in an anodized aluminum ring that highlights every city the games have taken place in.
Each color is limited to just 2,032 pieces – a nod to the year Omega’s contract with the Olympics terminates – and will be available this summer for just over $7,000.
One of each, please …
