NEW: Omega Seamaster Diver 300M “Beijing 2022” Special Edition

Japan may still be insisting that the delayed Summer Olympics will take place but meanwhile, some minds are turning to the next one beyond that. Omega has launched a special edition Seamaster Diver 300M to mark the Beijing Winter Olympics, to be held in 2022.

Coming in a 42mm stainless steel case, it has a grade 5 titanium unidirectional bezel featuring a 60-minute diving scale in relief.

The blue dial is ceramic, with the familiar wave pattern laser-engraved, and the rhodium-plated indices and hands are filled with Super-LumiNova. An Olympic nod comes in the form of five minute-markers at 2 o’clock, 4 o’clock, 8 o’clock, 10 o’clock and 12 o’clock, in the colours of the Olympic rings.

The Olympics references continue on the back side, with a stamped Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 emblem. Beneath it is the familiar automatic Co-Axial Master Chronomater Calibre 8800 which beats at 25,200 VPH and has a power reserve of 55 hours. It is resistant to 15,000 gauss, and has a Rhodium-plated finish with Geneva waves in arabesque. It has a Rhodium-plated finishing.

There is a helium escape valve and water resistance is 300m. Coming on a stainless steel bracelet with a combination of polished and brushed finishing with the brand’s patented diver extension, it will be available from April 2021, with an RRP of AU$9,425.
