Spotlight On the OMEGA Seamaster Tokyo 2020 Special Edition

Omega News & Releases

OMEGA is the official timekeeper for many prestigious sports events around the world, including the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. In fact, since its inception in 1848, the brand has been known for its accuracy and performance, which helped catapult OMEGA watches to stardom.

With a focus on technology but never compromising on style, OMEGA knows how to create watches for every occasion, whether you’re on land, space or the ocean.

All OMEGA Seamaster watches are cutting-edge and precise, popular among those with a more active lifestyle, and the new Tokyo 2020 Special Edition is a great companion piece for them.

The OMEGA Seamaster Collection

The legendary Seamaster is a collection of diving watches perfect for both experienced divers and hobbyists – and for everyone else who seeks a stylish, high-performance piece for everyday wear. The collection was launched in 1948 as a celebration of the brand’s centenary and has remained popular ever since.

It became even more so once James Bond took to the screen with a Seamaster. He’s worn several over the years but the decision to choose this collection above others makes a lot of sense. The world’s most famous spy is a naval Commander and a diver, so it couldn’t have been more perfect.

The range is also renowned for its reliability, robustness and elegance, allowing you to wear a Seamaster model no matter where you go. From the deep water to the mountains or the office, these watches will never disappoint. They’ve also been created with easy readability in mind, so it’s suitable for harsh environments where visibility is an issue.

Sporty, yet classic, modern, yet timeless, OMEGA Seamaster watches are also comfortable on the wrist. You’re able to choose from a variety of features as well, which includes rotating bezels and chronograph functions. Each chronometer is also C.O.S.C.-certified.

The precision you find in this collection makes it clear that OMEGA is the right choice for Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

OMEGA and the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020

The next Olympic Games event was originally scheduled for 2020 in Tokyo but is now set to be held from 23 July to 8 August 2021.

The Games celebrate the best of sports and great athleticism, with people from different nations competing against one another while following values like fairness, courage and persistence.

The Tokyo 2020 Games have three core concepts:

  • Achieving Personal Best
  • Unity in Diversity
  • Connecting to Tomorrow

These concepts match OMEGA’s virtues as well, as the watchmaker constantly seeks to improve the watches it creates, fosters a welcoming environment for everyone, and wants to leave a lasting – and positive – legacy for future generations.

OMEGA has been the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games for a stunning 28 times since 1932, always taking the opportunity to create better watches with increasingly innovative technology.

The brand is ready for this event with fantastic timepieces that celebrate the history of the Games and that offer unrivalled precision and performance, including the Tokyo 2020 Special Edition.

OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300m Tokyo 2020 Special Edition

The Summer Olympics might have been postponed, but OMEGA was right on time with its commemoration watch. The Seamaster Diver 300m Tokyo 2020 Special Edition celebrates the watchmaker’s role as timekeepers of the event and allows sports fans, watch enthusiasts and collectors to add yet another brilliant piece to their collection.

The model has a 42mm stainless-steel case that is mounted on a blue ceramic bezel ring with white enamel diving scale. The polished white ceramic dial has laser-engraved waves, an iconic look of the Seamaster, and also comes with blue indexes and hands as well as the collection’s name in red.

All these colours work together beautifully to create a fashionable piece that looks good with any outfit choice. A subtle design that, nevertheless, manages to catch the eye even if you’re in a crowd.

The watch has been manufactured to the highest of standards and, as a Master Chronometer (powered by the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8800), has passed eight rigorous tests that measure precision, resistance to shock, water-resistance, and more.

This Special Edition model has a transparent caseback with a NAIAD Lock, which reveals a Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games emblem on the crystal.

The watch is water-resistant up to 300 metres, perfect for divers and sailors alike, since you don’t need to worry about damaging this movement. Additionally, the sapphire crystal protects the materials against accidental scratches as well, so you can go about your day – and all sports activities you want to participate in – without a concern.

With the Co-Axial escapement, you get a watch that will last for a long time without the need for servicing, as there are fewer mechanical constraints inside the movement. Also, the silicon balance spring offers superior anti-magnetism, so that the timepiece continues to perform to the max even when exposed to magnetic fields (including when near phones and computers).

If you purchase this watch, you also get a special Olympic Games presentation box as another tribute to this fantastic event.
