Offered up is a look into the anticipated Omega Seamaster 1948 “London 2012” watch – a timepiece that will see a release next year, just in time for the 2012 Olympic games. What makes it even more special is the fact that it comes on the anniversary of the last time London hosted the Olympics in 1948. As of March 2011, the watch was priced at $6,800 USD, although that has not been officially confirmed. Hodinkee offers its take on this upcoming design: “This limited edition is a more than reminiscent of the original and sized similarly too. Though, when we were shown the watch in Basel it was described as 38mm, and now that it is official, it is listed as 39mm. Did it actually get bigger? Probably not. Inside is Omega’s caliber 2202 with a power reserve of 48 hours.” Further insight into the Seamaster 1948 “London 2012” is offered here.
