Seamaster Olympic Games Limited Edition Collection
OMEGA’s role as the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games began in 1932 and has been a passion and a commitment ever since. Today, the Seamaster Olympic Games Limited Edition Collection celebrates that legacy and gives OMEGA fans a chance to share in the fun.
“The 39.5 mm watches have been created in stainless steel, with the Limited Edition number engraved on the side of each case.”
OMEGA stopwatches from the Montreal and Innsbruck Olympic Games in 1976 served as inspiration for the design.
A similar dial, with sporty hands and bold hour markers on black, set in sharp contrast to the minute-track on a white outer circle.
The Dial Design
The domed black and white dial also features a colourful pulse reader, with three narrowly-separated 20-second timing intervals, enabling the wearer to easily calculate their pulse beats-per-minute.
“Each watch has a leather strap which is micro-perforated both for style and to aerate the wearer’s skin.”
The Olympic Games Limited Edition Set
Continuing the celebration of OMEGA’s Olympic Games role, a special Limited Edition set has been created which includes five models created in the colours of the Olympic Rings. All watches come in a special presentation box alongside a miniature last-lap bell, which has been crafted in the same Swiss foundry as the real Olympic bells.
“Only 100 Limited Edition sets have been made, representing the 100 years of timekeeping that OMEGA will reach in 2032.”
The Dial Design
The white domed dial of each watch, which includes an easily readable railway minute track and contrasting blackened hands, is inspired by the OMEGA stopwatches used at the 1948 Olympic Games in London. There is also a colourful pulse reader encircling each dial.
Back and Sides
An anodized aluminium ring on the caseback includes all of the host cities and dates of OMEGA’s timekeeping journey. The watches are driven by the Master Chronometer calibre 8806 and the Limited Edition number of each model is engraved on the side of the case.
