Its just a few days till the prestigious Olympic Games begin and Omega is once again releasing a brand-new watch to commemorate its decades’ long partnership with the highest-regarded athletics event on the planet.
As a tribute to that iconic event, the Swiss watchmaker has created two special timepieces made of full 18-carat yellow gold, each dedicated to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
Omega And The Olympic Games
Since 1932, OMEGA has been the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games. This year, the brand will once again serve its role for the 29th time when the prestigious Olympics Games begin in Japan this July. As a brand that has been associated with the coveted international athletics event for decades now, Omega knows about the precision, excellence and commitment that the Olympic Games podium stands for.
The All-New Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra
The all-new Seamaster Aqua Terra watches are offered in 38 mm as well as 41 mm case sizes. Both the references stand out thanks to their opulent yellow gold cases. As always, OMEGA has put to use its 18-carat gold, which is considered to be the premium standard in watch as well as jewellery making. With its superb balance between purity and practicality, the new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra watches set a new benchmark for the modern-day luxury watch.
The timepieces are offered on blue leather straps. One can easily spot the laser-engraved polished blue ceramic dials as well as the pattern on the dials inspired by emblem of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The entire emblem can also be found on the watches’ case backs. On the inside, each watch is powered by a Co-Axial Master Chronometer calibre. This guarantees the Swiss industry’s highest standard of precision, performance, and last but not least, magnetic resistance.
In The Words Of The Champ Himself
Aptly, Michael Phelps is one of the first people to wear this watch. Phelps, also known as the most decorated Olympian in the history of the games with 28 Olympic Games medals which consists of including 23 gold medals. Michael has been a part of the Omega family since 2004. As an athlete, the importance of time is paramount and Phelps, for one, has always known how valuable time tis for an athlete.
In his own words, “If you’re an Olympian, or trying to become an Olympian, it’s a 24-hour, 7 day a week job. It’s non-stop. It’s around-the-clock.” He further added, “To really be prepared for an Olympic Games, you have to put in the work. You have to go through the struggle. For the journey I went five times, it was never easy, but I know the work that I was doing gave me the results that I deserved.”
