With only a year to go to the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022, the excitement is growing among athletes and fans from around the world. OMEGA, the Official Timekeeper of the XXIV Olympic Winter Games has begun the celebrations early with a new timepiece – the Seamaster Diver 300M “Beijing 2022” Special Edition.
The Seamaster Diver 300M “Beijing 2022” Special Edition features a 42 mm case made from stainless steel and includes a unique grade 5 titanium bezel ring with a 60-minute diving scale in positive relief. Its sun-brushed blue ceramic [ZrO2] dial is garnished with laser-engraved waves along with rhodium-plated indexes and hands filled with Super-LumiNova. As a special tribute to Beijing 2022, there are also five special minute-markers at 2H, 4H, 8H, 10H, and 12H, with each one created in the five colors of the iconic Olympic Rings.
The polished and brushed caseback includes a branded Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 emblem. Behind the caseback, there is the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8800. This powerful movement and the entire watch have undergone the 8 tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), guaranteeing the industry’s highest standards of precision, performance and magnetic resistance.
Inside the special presentation box, the timepiece is set on a polished and brushed stainless steel bracelet including OMEGA’s patented extendable foldover rack-and-pusher with an extra diver extension.
OMEGA has been the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games since 1932 and Beijing 2022 will mark the company’s 30th occasion in the role.
