At the Basel show, Omega replica will launch the Seamaster Olympic Games collection, which celebrates 27 times when, starting in 1932, the Swiss brand was the official timekeeper for the Olympic Games.
5 Omega Seamaster Olympic Games
At Baselworld 2018 five Seamaster Olympic Games will make their first appearance black, yellow, green, blue, red representing the colors of the Olympic rings. In addition to this, the new Omega replica watches collection was inspired by the look of its chronographs from the past, in particular those used in 1976 in Montreal and Innsbruck.
The traits of those chronometers are taken from curved black and white dials on which to make reading easier the indices of black hours are marked by white hands. The sporting spirit of the new Omega Seamaster Olympic Games collection is also emphasized by a pulsometer scale with 3 intervals of 20 seconds that was once used to quickly control the heart’s pulsations.
The name of all the cities that have hosted or hosted the Olympic games timed by Omega from Los Angeles 1932 to Los Angeles 2028 are screen-printed on the full steel case back.
The steel case measures 39.5 mm in diameter while the mounted movement is the Caliber Master Chronometer 8800 certified stopwatch.
