Omega Launches New Seamaster Olympic Games Collection Ahead of PyeongChang 2018

Hot on the heels of their previous PyeongChang commemorative watch, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean, Omega announced the launch of the new Seamaster Olympic Games Collection ahead of the 2018 Winter Games on February 9-25.

As the “official timekeeper” of the Olympic Games no less than 27 times (that’s an 86-year commitment), it’s no surprise that the brand is releasing an entire collection dedicated to the greatest sporting event of the modern era. The Seamaster lineup has models available in black, yellow, green, blue, and red as a nod to the colors of the Olympic Rings; the theme continues with anodized aluminum ring on the caseback, which includes all the known host cities that Omega has kept time in, from the Los Angles Games in 1932 to the Los Angeles Games coming up in 2028.

Other standout features include the domed black and white dial, hour markers, and the sharply contrasted minute trackon the white outer circle. And, just to reinforce the fact that these watches were designed with sports and timekeeping in mind, they also sport a colored pulse reader encircling the dial with, according to Omega in a recent release, “three narrowly-separated 20-second timing intervals” that”enable the wearer to easily calculate their pulse beats-per-minute.”

Inspired in part by Omega stopwatches from the 1976 Summer Montreal Games and the Innsbruck Winter Games from that same year, the watches offer an energetic flair in a 39.5 mm package. The straps are made from micro-perforated leather to add texture and to allow the wearer’s wrist to breathe. Inside, the watches are powered by the master Chronomoeter calibre 8800.

Both Olympic and timepiece fans have to act fast for this collection, though, since only 2,032 versions of each model (for a total of 10,160) have been manufactured — a nod to Omega’s status as the official timekeeper all the way through 2032, a period of exactly 100 years.

The watches will be available at the end of January 2018 and will retail for $5,400.
