Since 1932, Omega has been the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games, a job the brand will play until at any rate 2032 (regardless of whether we don’t know yet where the Games will be found). Simple to count… The Biel-based brand will be available at the Olympics for an entire 100 years. To commend this centennial heritage, Omega presents another platform of watches known as the Seamaster Olympic Games Gold Collection, a set of three of rich, vintage-propelled timepieces representing the three winning decorations introduced to competitors at the Olympic Games.
The Omega Seamaster Olympic Games Gold Collection is nearer in soul to a restricted version watch, similar to the one we acquainted you with a couple of months prior, the Seamaster Edizione Venezia . Sensibly measured, exquisitely formed, with a truly applicable plan, this alluring Italian version was a motivation for the new Olympic Games Gold Collection – rethought with intriguing subtleties and updates.
The instance of the Omega Seamaster Olympic Games Gold watches estimates 39.5mm in distance across – an exceptionally adjusted, inconspicuous size, that doesn’t forfeit its quality on the wrist. As a portrayal of the three winning decorations, it will be accessible in three diverse 18k gold composites: yellow gold, pink “Sedna” gold (Omega’s own pink gold compound) and, a curiosity for the brand, white “Canopus” gold. “Canopus” is a restrictive white gold amalgam, which is respectable and particular for its high splendor, whiteness and life span. It isn’t rhodium plated, as most white gold cases and will hold its splendid, white tone for an any longer period.
The case is formed like authentic Seamaster watches, with a think angled and cleaned bezel and contorted “lyre” carries, suggestive of 1960s watches of the brand. Combined with this exquisite case is a bare dial, which just shows the hours, minutes and seconds, without a date. The domed dials of the Omega Seamaster Olympic Games Gold Collection are (uncommon for the brand) eggshell-white lacquer and highlight an unmistakable vintage Omega logo in red. Aside from that, lone the “Seamaster” logo is noticeable on the dial, just as the mark three-sided applied files and leaf hands (both are made in 18k gold, coordinating the case).
Inside the case is the in-house type 8807. A programmed development with a 55-hour power reserve, the rotor is created in 18k Sedna gold and it includes a transversal balance connect – in addition to all the standard specialized refinements of Omega’s developments: silicon hairspring with against attractive properties; Co-Axial escapement; Master Chronometer accreditation by METAS… so, a genuine exactness motor. This development is noticeable through the situation back and surrounded by a 18k gold ring, which incorporates the names of all the host urban communities from Omega’s first Olympic Games in Los Angeles 1932 up to Los Angeles 2028.
