To commemorate its role as Official Timekeeper of The Olympic Games, OMEGA has introduced special editions of its Seamaster Aqua Terra collection with distinctive blue dials. The Aqua Terra wristwatches, with the unmistakable vertical lines on their dials, are among the brand’s most popular products and the watches in the Olympic Collection will be cherished keepsakes from the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial Chronograph “London 2012”
The robust 44 mm Aqua Terra Co- Axial Chronograph “London 2012” is available in two versions. One features a bicolour polished and brushed case crafted from 18 Ct red gold and stainless steel and presented on an integrated dark blue leather strap. The other is a stainless steel edition with a matching bracelet.
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 Co-Axial Chronograph 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 caseback celebrates the London 2012 Olympic Games dramatically: it is stamped with the “London 2012” Olympic emblem. The OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra 44 London Chronograph is water resistant to a depth of 15 bar / 150 metres / 500 feet.
The OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial “London 2012”
OMEGA’s Seamaster Aqua Terra wristwatches, with their distinctive vertical-lined dial design, have been among the brand’s most popular since their release in 2008. The Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial “London 2012” combines the collection’s fashionable styling with the exclusive OMEGA Co- Axial calibre 8520, one of the finest mechanical watch movements in the world.
Two 34 mm models have been created – a bicolour edition in 18 Ct yellow gold and stainless steel with a dark blue leather strap and version in stainless steel with a stainless steel bracelet. The caseback, stamped with the London 2012 Olympic Games medallion, helps celebrate the world’s highest-profile sporting event.
The PVD-coated blue dial is decorated with vertical lines that characterize the watches in the Aqua Terra collection. There are applied indexes in 18 Ct gold which have been treated with white Super-LumiNova. The facetted 18 Ct gold hands are coated with the same luminous material making it easy to read the time in all lighting conditions. There is also an applied 18 Ct gold date window at 3 o’clock.
