Celebrating the ultimate award for sports perfection, Omega presents two new Seamaster Aqua Terra timepieces in time for this month’s Olympics.
You might have slept through this part of your high school ancient history class but at the early Olympics, winners were not awarded medals of precious metal but wreaths made from kotinos, wild olive branches that had religious significance. It wasn’t until 1904 that gold medals were awarded to Olympic champions.
Paying homage to the ultimate award, Swiss watchmaker Omega has crafted two unique timepieces, each dedicated to the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, and made in full 18K yellow gold. Omega has been the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games since 1932, and will serve in the role for the 29th time this month in Japan.
The new Seamaster Aqua Terra watches are offered in 38 mm or 41 mm sizes, and both stand out for their radiant yellow gold cases, which are crafted in 18K gold, considered to be the premium standard in watch and jewellery making, with its superb balance between purity and practicality.
Presented on blue leather straps, the watches boast polished blue ceramic dials, which have been laser-engraved with a pattern inspired by the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games emblem. The full emblem can also be found transferred on the casebacks, while inside, each timepiece is driven by a Co-Axial Master Chronometer calibre, guaranteeing the Swiss industry’s highest standard of precision, performance and magnetic resistance.
The new Seamaster Aqua Terra Tokyo 2020 Gold Editions come with Omega’s full 5-year warranty and are delivered to customers inside a special presentation box.
