Chris goes in depth with the brand new Omega Beijing 2022 Special Edition Seamaster and offers his humble opinion.
SEAMASTER DIVER 300M
“BEIJING 2022” SPECIAL EDITION
In 2022, it will be China’s turn to host the greatest show on snow – and OMEGA will be there, measuring every dramatic moment as Official Timekeeper. To mark the occasion we’ve produced a special edition Diver 300M in steel, with eye-catching tributes to the historic winter sports event, on both the dial and caseback.
A BLUE DIAL FOR BEIJING
It wasn’t difficult to decide on the shade of the dial. When every competition takes place in below zero temperatures, it has to be the coolest blue. OMEGA’s watch for Beijing 2022 has a sun-brushed blue ceramic [ZrO2] dial with laser-engraved waves, rhodium-plated indexes and hands filled with Super-LumiNova.
“This special edition Diver 300M salutes a milestone in OMEGA’s timekeeping history, as Beijing 2022 will mark the brand’s 30th occasion in the prestigious role”.
CALIBRE OMEGA 8800
Behind the caseback sits the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8800. Both the exceptional movement and the entire watch have passed the 8 tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), guaranteeing the industry’s highest standards of precision, performance and magnetic resistance.
- 55 HOUR POWER RESERVE
- SELF WINDING
A shining tribute to the Winter Olympic Games, OMEGA’s role as Official Timekeeper and the dedicated athletes we’re proud to serve, the Seamaster Diver 300M Beijing 2022 comes complete with its own winner’s podium: a special presentation box in a shade as white as snow.
