Omega launched the special edition of its Seamaster Aqua Terra Chronograph, dedicated to the London 2012 Olympic Games. New Omega watches, under the name Seamaster Aqua Terra 44 London Chronograph, come in two variations, to celebrate the greatest sports event in the World.
Next Olympic Games are something special for the Swiss watchmaker. Exactly 80 years after the first appearance as the official Games’ timekeeper, Omega will commemorate the unique anniversary – its 25th Olympics. As it had done several times before (Olympic Timeless, Olympic Vancuver 2010, Olympic Pocket Watch 1932), Omega prepared something authentic for great admirers of its Specialities Collection.
First variation of the Seamaster Aqua Terra 44 London Chronograph comes with a bicolor case, made of 18 Ct red gold and stainless steel. This elegant sport watch has an integrated black leather strap. The other model is less luxury, with a case and a bracelet, both crafted of rugged stainless steel.
Speaking of differences, this is pretty much all. Both models features polished and brushed case, with large diameter of 44 mm and the “London 2012” Olympic emblem, which is engraved on the stainless steal case back.
The most striking part of the watch is the blue vertically striped teak-pattern dial, which is a trademark of brand’s Aqua Terra family. It features three sub-dials – a small seconds counter is located at 9 o’clock, the 30-minute chronograph sub-dial is at 3 o’clock, while the 12 hour counter takes 6 o’clock position. A date window is at the 4:30. Central hour, minute and chronograph seconds hands are made of polished and brushed 18 Ct gold and coated with white Super-LumiNova, for superb readability.
The OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra 44 London Chronograph watch is powered by the Omega Caliber 3313 automatic chronograph movement. It has column wheel mechanism and Co-Axial Escapement that guaranty higher precision, durability and stability. This self-winding mechanism has a solid power-reserve of 52 hours.
Like all models from the Seamaster Aqua Terra family of Omega sport watches, this Olympic timepiece has a superb water-resistance up to 150 meters.
