Keep Time at the Tokyo Olympics with These Omega Timepieces

As athletes prepare to compete in 339 events over 33 sports, there’s a serious need for technical timekeeping with the Tokyo Olympics. The good news is that Omega is back to serve as the Official Timekeeper for the Olympics for the 29th time. Since first representing the Olympics at the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles, Omega’s 90 years in the business ensures that athletes get the most accurate time recordings across all events. The upcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympics will be the biggest event Omega has handled so far, with over 4000 tons of state-of-the-art equipment making the trip to Tokyo.

Outside of helping with on-site timekeeping, Omega also launched a new range of three timepieces to commemorate the grand event. Whether you want to keep time at home, on the field, or at the pool, here are the new watches – and which events they go best with.

1. Seamaster Aqua Terra Tokyo 2020 Limited Edition

The new Seamaster is perfect for aquatics, water polo, and synchronized swimming. The limited edition Tokyo 2020 model has a ceramic dial, making it the first Seamaster watch to do so.

The watch is made in a polished blue finish that looks like it came straight from the swimming pool. With a generous 150 metres of water-resistance, the watch performs as well under the water as it does on the land. The case is made from stainless steel with a sapphire crystal caseback featuring the emblem of the Tokyo 2020 Games.

As well as having a structured rubber strap, the watch also has a stainless steel bracelet so you can change your look for different events. The watch is powered by the OMEGA Master Chronometer Calibre 8900, delivering nothing but the most accurate timekeeping.

2. Seamaster Plant Ocean Tokyo 2020 Limited Edition

This watch is more suited to outdoor water sports such as sailing. The watch offers a full 600 metres of water resistance, meaning you can take it with you anywhere you go. This watch can easily withstand the waters of the ocean if need be.

The limited edition watch has a white ceramic bezel ring on the dial. The 20-minute indicator with red liquid ceramic is a subtle nod to the year 2020, when the Olympics were supposed to take place. A varnished red dot sits on the seconds hand to represent the Japanese flag.

3. Seamaster Diver 300M Tokyo 2020

As the name suggests, this watch was made for diving. The stainless steel case provides extreme durability for outdoor conditions, such as diving in the ocean. The indexes are also filled with Super-LumiNova to ensure that they are always visible even in deep water, which is handy given the watch offers water resistance up to 300 metres.

The polished white ceramic dial of the watch is engraved with waves to reflect the aquatic theme. As with the other watches in the collection, this one features the Tokyo 2020 emblem on the caseback. This watch is also one of the few watches officially certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).
