As a tribute to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, OMEGA has released three timepieces, inspired by the glory, triumph and unbreakable unity that brings the world together – two bespoke Seamaster Diver 300M watches and a lovely Seamaster Bullhead, part of the ‘Rio 2016’ Limited Edition collection. Sporty and elegant,, the first Seamaster Diver 300M ‘Rio 2016’ features a stainless steel case, polished black ceramic bezel and a wave-pattern dial inspired by the iconic mosaic of Copacabana’s sidewalk.
To wear this watch is to dive into the ‘cidade maravilhosa’ – the musical rhythm of Rio de Janeiro. The black ceramic bezel ring and lacquered numerals in blue, yellow, green and red, reproduce the five colours of the Olympic rings. 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.
Already standing out for its iconic style and design, the Seamaster Bullhead Rio 2016 Limited Edition is further recognised by its blue leather strap with multi-coloured stitching in yellow, green, red and black.
Representing the famous Olympic rings, this colour theme is continued on the rotating inner-bezel to convey the unity that the rings signify. To represent the coveted medals of Olympic champions, this unique chronograph features three sub-dials that have been decorated with a bronze ring, an 18K yellow gold ring, and a 925 silver ring. Placed within a matt black dial, the overall effect is one of victory and celebration. With only 2,016 pieces produced, each one is set to become highly prized.
