With just 500 days left for 2012 London Olympic Games, OMEGA, the Official Timekeeper for this prestigious event has unveiled a special edition Seamaster Aqua Terra 44 London Chronograph in two configurations. The first model features a bicolour case crafted from 18 Ct red gold and stainless steel and presented on an integrated black leather strap.
The second one is made of rugged stainless steel and is presented on a matching bracelet. The bold 44 mm case is polished and brushed and has a polished bezel. The distinctive blue PVD-coated dial features the characteristic vertically striped teak-pattern dial which has contributed to the enormous popularity of OMEGA’s Aqua Terra family.
The dial is highlighted by a small seconds counter at 9 o’clock and a date window at the 4:30 position. The chronograph 30-minute recorder is at 3 o’clock and the 12 hour recorder is at 6 o’clock. The Seamaster Aqua Terra 44 London has polished and brushed facetted 18 Ct gold central hour, minute and chronograph seconds hands treated with white Super-LumiNova to make them readable in all lighting conditions.
The case back is stamped with the “London 2012” Olympic emblem. Water resistance is 15 bar / 150 metres / 500 feet.
