The Biel-based firm, which is participating in the Beijing Winter Olympics for the 30th time as official timekeeper of this world sporting event, which includes alpine skiing, bobsleigh, ice hockey, curling, luge, biathlon, speed skating, etc., is now offering a special edition in all white: the Seamaster Aqua Terra “Beijing 2022”.

omega seamaster aqua terra beijing 2022 sideIts icy face is composed of a white ceramic disc with a “frosted” finish that takes up the snowy crystal graphics and is curved by triangular hour markers, the visual signature of the Aqua Terra line. These hour markers, like the trio of dauphine-shaped hour, minute and second hands above them, are blued and coated with white Super-LumiNova®, while the date is discreetly displayed at 6 o’clock. A few touches of red, on the quarter hours that punctuate the minute track along the flange and the Seamaster mention at 12 o’clock, energize the whole.
