SEAMASTER DIVER 300M TOKYO 2020
Even if covid has shaken up the sporting events’ agenda considerably in particular by postponing the Tokyo Olympic Games by a year, the Bienne brand has soldiered on and proposes above all a special series of its professional diver.
2020 was literally a no-go year for all sporting events, with the majority of major meetings postponed for a year (or even canceled), like the Tokyo Olympic Games. In light of the improvement in the health situation, the most-followed competition in the world, scheduled to take place from July 23 to August 08 this year on Japanese soil, marks Omega’s 29th participation as official timekeeper. The Bienne brand has seized the opportunity to showcase three OG-labeled watches including a Seamaster Diver 300M Tokyo 2020.
The 42 mm-diameter steel-crafted case features, Seamaster collection oblige, a screwed crown protected by two armatures at 3 o’clock and a helium escape valve at 10 o’clock. Its transparent caseback decorated with the logo of the Japanese edition invites to admire the oscillating weight linked to the Omega 8800 caliber. This Master Chronometer-certified automatic motor drives the time functions and the date disc and delivers a power reserve of 55 hours once fully wound.
On the white ceramic dial boasting laser-etched wave patterns, the different elements take on intense blue, some are occasionally fringed with white Super-LumiNova®: the applique indexes, the sword-style openworked hour and minute hands, the dot-tipped direct-drive, the date digit(s) at 6 o’clock as well as the minute tracker encircled by the flange. This oceanic hue echoes the ceramic ring inserted in the unidirectional rotating bezel which showcases a white-enameled diving scale.
The Seamaster Diver 300M Tokyo 2020 is worn on a steel bracelet with 5 rows of links and is attached by a folding clasp.
