London Olympics coming next year and a limited edition OMEGA Seamaster watches is here. The very first Omega Seamaster was launched in 1948, the last time London hosted the Olympic Games.
For the 2012 Olympics Games, Swiss Luxury Watch Manufacturer is launching Limited Edition Seamaster 1948 Co-Axial London 2012 Chronometar. The new OMEGA Seamaster will be set inside a 39mm stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal and an 18-carat yellow gold medallion on the case back that sports an embossed London 2012 Olympic Games logo. The Seamaster 1948 has an opaline silver dial with a small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock. It has an applied 18 Ct white gold vintage OMEGA logo and name as well as 18 Ct white gold Arabic numerals at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock and hour markers at the other positions. The watch features diamond-polished hour and minute hands and a blue steel small seconds hand.
While the watch’s stunning exterior recalls its legendary ancestor, a different story is told inside the case: the Seamaster 1948 is powered by the exclusive OMEGA caliber 2202, an officially-certified chronometer equipped with a Co-Axial escapement on three-levels and free sprung-balance. The water resistance level of the watch is 400 feet, making it pretty sturdy as well.
The OMEGA Seamaster 1948 Co Axial London 2012 is being offered in a limited edition of 1,948 pieces, to commemorate the year when the very first OMEGA Seamaster was launched. It is presented on a black leather strap and delivered in a special London 2012 presentation box.
