With the spirit of the Olympic Games lighting up the celebrations in Rio de Janeiro, OMEGA, the Official Timekeeper since 1932, is maintaining its tradition this year too. As the world’s greatest athletes prepare for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, OMEGA has already set the winning standard in watchmaking. To celebrate the excitement and anticipation of this global event, it has taken sports timekeeping to another level by announcing the launch of the â€œSeamaster Diver 300M â€œRio 2016â€ limited to 3016 units.
The limited edition watch is inspired by the Copacabana waves. The wave pattern has been taken from the mosaic design on Copacabanaâ€™s sidewalks and used as an inspiration for a similar style on the watchâ€™s striking lacquered black dial.
The upgraded and enhanced Seamaster Diver 300M â€œRio 2016â€ features a uni-directional rotating diving bezel that is made from black polished ceramic. What sets this watch apart from its previous models, are the lacquered numbers in red, green, yellow and blue, which represent the exuberance of Rio as well as the five colours of the famous Olympic rings. Other features of this timepiece are typical of the
iconic OMEGA Seamaster 300M style. These include a date window at 3 oâ€™clock, a helium escape valve at 10 oâ€™clock, and polished facetted skeleton rhodium-plated hands coated in white Super-LumiNova. Presented on a stainless steel bracelet, the timepiece is driven by the exclusive OMEGA calibre 2500 and is water resistant up to 30 bar (300 metres / 1000 feet). The screw-in caseback has been embossed with the â€œRio 2016â€ logo and engraved with an individual Limited Edition number on the reverse side of the polished and brushed stainless steel case.
The Seamaster Diver 300M Â “Rio 2016” Limited Edition is priced at INR 268,100.
