Inspired by Japan and its capital city, the new timepiece pairs a deep blue bezel and matching indexes and hands with a pristine white dial laser-engraved with the Seamaster’s signature wave patterning. A welcome dash of contrast comes in the blue “Seamaster” lettering underneath the 12 o’clock position while a 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games emblem transfer adorns the sapphire crystal caseback, commemorating the momentous sporting event. Powering the watch itself is the in-house Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8800, an impressive piece of engineering officially certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology. As an added touch, the timepiece also comes housed inside a special Olympic Games presentation box.
For those interested, OMEGA’s Seamaster Diver 300M Tokyo 2020 edition is now available for $5,600 USD. Head over to the company’s website to learn more.
