Omega Gives The Seamaster The Midas Touch For Paris Olympics
The once-utilitarian timepiece gets a refined update to mark the countdown to the historic sporting event.
The countdown to the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris has officially begun, with Omega commemorating the occasion with a special-edition timepiece. As official timekeeper for the event—a role the Swiss manufacture has held for 31 years—the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M ‘Paris 2024’ Special Edition exudes elegance.
The 42mm timepiece is crafted from stainless steel and features a bezel crafted from 18k Moonshine Gold, Omega’s proprietary scratch- and fade-resistant yellow alloy. A visual tie to the coveted medals that athletes strive for, the golden bezel features a textured frosted finish and is laser-structured with a diving scale in positive relief, with a lone dot of Super-LumiNova at 12 o’clock.
Rendered in white ceramic, the laser-engraved dial features a matte finish with a polished wave pattern. At 6 o’clock, the date display employs the Paris 2024 typography, while the central seconds hand bears a minuscule emblem. Hour markers are coated in white Super-LumiNova, while the faceted hands are finished with Moonshine Gold.
Flip it over and you’ll find an inlaid Moonshine Gold medallion with the Paris 2024 emblem, with its polished surface contrasting the textured laser-ablated background. Under it are the words ‘Paris 2023’ and the Olympic Rings in stainless steel.
The newcomer is presented on a stainless steel bracelet equipped with the manufacture’s new Quick Change System, enabling wearers to sub in a dedicated Paris 2024 NATO Strap.
The 2024 Olympic Games in Paris will commence on the 26th July, 2024. But until then, the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M ‘Paris 2024’ Special Edition serves as the ideal way to get into the Olympic spirit, with the timepiece exclusively available at the manufacture’s Paris boutiques.
