The Summer Olympics in Tokyo begin on July 23, 2021, and already people are getting excited for the Games. Athlete qualifying began in February, and the United States has many medal contenders for the Games.
Do you love watching the Olympics? You may not be competing or traveling to Tokyo, but you can feel like a part of the big event when you purchase one of the two limited edition watches dedicated to the 2021 Olympics.
Omega, the official timekeeper of the Games, presents limited editions for this major event. It has released two watches, the Seamaster Aqua Terra limited edition and the Seamaster Planet Ocean limited edition. Both came out exactly one year before the Games will begin.
What do the Omega Tokyo 2021 watches have in common, and what special features set them apart? Here's a deeper look at these two pieces from the Omega watch collection.
Seamaster Aqua Terra
For the first time in this collection, the Aqua Terra has a blue dial. The matching blue strap nicely complements the dial, and the watch comes with a stainless steel bracelet for days when you want a different look on your wrist. The steel case measures 41 mm, and it keeps time with the Omega Master Chronometer Caliber 8900. The ceramic dial, also a first for the collection, features a laser-engraved pattern that contrasts beautifully.
On the caseback, the symbol for the 2021 Games is engraved, making this watch truly stand apart from every other. Appropriately enough, Omega is issuing only 2,020 of these watches. You need to secure yours now before they sell out as we get closer to the Games.
Seamaster Planet Ocean
The second watch draws inspiration from the flag of the host country Japan. The dial measures 39.5 mm, and liquid ceramic makes up the red 20 on the dial. The white ceramic dial contrasts with the red tip on the seconds hand, which symbolizes the red circle on the Japanese flag.
This watch draws power from the Omega Master Chronometer Caliber 8800. The back of the sapphire crystal case also includes a Japan 2021 Games emblem. The watch comes with a variety of strap choices:
- Stainless steel strap
- NATO strap
- White leather strap
Appreciate the Games With Your New Olympic Watch
Omega has been the official timekeeper of the Olympics a staggering 28 times since 1932. The company, which also produces the popular Omega Speedmaster, understands how critical precision timing is to events like the 100-meter dash, where winners are determined by hundredths of a second. These new watches reflect the importance of a good timepiece in making the Games run.
