Omega Limited Edition Seamaster Diver 300M “Rio 2016”
Swiss luxury watchmaker OMEGA, the official timekeeper for the Olympics since 1932, has launched a limited edition of The Seamaster Diver 300M “Rio 2016” inspired by the dynamic and exuberant spirit of the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games.
The timepiece Seamaster Diver 300M is a combination of watchmaking expertise and unique craftsmanship. To wear this watch is to dive into the ‘cidade maravilhosa’ – the musical rhythm of Rio de Janeiro. Sporty and elegant, it features a stainless steel case, polished black ceramic bezel and a wave-pattern dial inspired by the iconic mosaic of Copacabana’s sidewalk.
What sets this watch apart from its previous models, are the lacquered numbers in red, green, yellow and blue, which represent the exuberance of Rio as well as the five colours of the famous Olympic rings.
Other features of this timepiece are typical of the iconic OMEGA Seamaster 300M style. These include a date window at 3 o’clock, a helium escape valve at 10 o’clock, and polished facetted skeleton rhodium-plated hands coated in white Super-LumiNova.
The screw-in caseback is embossed with the Rio 2016 Olympic Games logo and engraved with the limited edition number. This celebratory watch is limited to 3,016 pieces. Presented on a stainless steel bracelet, the timepiece is driven by the exclusive OMEGA calibre 2500 and is water resistant up to 30 bar (300 metres / 1000 feet).
Celebrating the glory of victory with colour and prestige, the OMEGA Rio 2016 Collection is the winning result of OMEGA’s watchmaking excellence. “From triumphant medals to the iconic Olympic rings, the inspiration runs deep,” claims the Olympic Omega motto.
