It is interesting to see what limited editions brands release for their home markets, so today we are sharing a new Omega Seamaster limited edition which is only available in the brand’s Swiss boutiques.
At its core this is a Seamaster Co-Axial in a 39.5mm stainless steel case.
This 39.5mm sized watch has a domed lacquered dial in smoky dark grey, with a gradient effect. In contrast to the stainless steel of the case, the hands, indices and Omega logo are 18 carat Sedna gold.
The extras on this watch which make it clearly a Switzerland model appear on the back, which features a number of well known natural and man-made Swiss locations laser-engraved on the grey inner ring. They include Zurich’s Grossmünster, Geneva’s Jet d’Eau, the Swiss Alps, and naturally, Omega’s Bienne headquarters.
Alongside the Swiss tableau, through the open sapphire case back you can see the automatic Omega Master Chronometer Calibre 8800, which beats at 25,200VPH and has a power reserve of fifty-five hours. It is rhodium-plated and has Geneva striping.
For those considering wearing it whilst on Lac Léman, water resistance is 60m/ 200ft.
This limited edition will be in a limitation of 1,291 pieces, in homage to the year of the Swiss Confederation’s birth, with each limitation number engraved on the side of the case. As the name suggests, these models will only be available to buy within Switzerland’s Omega boutiques. The RRP is CHF 6,900.
