SEAMASTER PLANET OCEAN 600M TOKYO 2020 LIMITED EDITION
For want of being able to head off to Tokyo to cheer on your champions, the OG official timekeeper proposes a series flying high the colors of the host country. A special souvenir of this event for a host of exceptional reasons…
July 24, 2020. With stadiums bubbling over with spectators from around the world, the sporting events of the Olympic Games organized in the Japanese capital kick off…. Well no, actually, as this scenario is purely uchronic, as COVID-19 turned lives and agendas upside down. Yet, real “timepieces” like the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Tokyo 2020 Limited Edition remind us of the original data of these Games. In short, this series rolled out in 2,020 pieces displays the event logo and year on its sapphire-crystal caseback. This specificity along with one-of-a-kind stylistics make this Omega-imagined piece highly-appealing to collectors.
The 39.5 mm-diameter steel case is topped with a ceramic bezel. The ensemble protects a dial that’s also crafted in ceramic. These elements all stand out with their incredibly-pure white hue. To set off this immaculate décor and, as a tip of the hat to Japan’s flag, dashes of red have been added to the tip of the central “lollipop” hand driving the seconds and the 20 of the LiquidmetalTM diving scale. To ensure perfect harmony, this diver is worn on a strap that’s also pristine white. Two other straps are, however, proposed in the box, one in steel, the other a NATO.
Like the other equivalent models of the collection, the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Tokyo 2020 Limited Edition time data is driven by the Master Chronometer 8800 caliber, resistant to magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss. This selfwinding movement delivers a power reserve of 55 hours.
