With two years until the Olympic Winter Games reach South Korea, OMEGA is celebrating the countdown with an exclusive and stunning timepiece. Following on from OMEGA’s proud history of Olympic Timekeeping, the renowned Swiss watch brand is already looking forward to continuing their illustrious role at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018. To celebrate the “two year” countdown, a highly-collectable watch has been crafted with several unique details.
The OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra “PyeongChang 2018” Limited Edition is a timepiece that captures all the original innovation and beauty of the current Aqua Terra 150M collection. However, for this model, the additional focus is firmly on the momentous sporting event.
The first noticeable difference is the addition of the event name. Using the five colours of the iconic Olympic Rings, the words “PYEONGCHANG 2018” have been inscribed on the minute track of the popular blue PVD dial.
Incredibly, the 20 and the 18 are perfectly aligned with the exact minute indexes. This is a very unique coincidence that cannot be repeated in our lifetime.
The transparent sapphire crystal caseback includes the official “Olympic Games PyeongChang 2018” logo. On the side of the case, the limited edition number has been engraved. This will be one of only 2018 limited edition numbers made available.DESIGN AND INNOVATION
The 41mm timepiece, including the case and the metal bracelet, has been created in stainless steel. The typical “teak concept” pattern of the Aqua Terra dial is included and, at its heart, the watch is powered by the Master Co-Axial movement 8500.
When it is launched, the OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra “PyeongChang 2018” Limited Edition will be presented in its own Olympic themed box, and will take its place amongst OMEGA’s renowned history of collectable Olympic themed watches.
