OMEGA - SEAMASTER 1948 CO AXIAL LONDON LIMITED EDITION
OMEGA - Official Timekeeper of the 25 Olympic Games
When the curtain is raised on the next edition of the Games, the Swiss watchmaker will assume its Olympic Games timekeeping role at the world’s most prestigious sporting spectacle for the 25th time.
To commemorate the occasion, OMEGA has created:
Seamaster 1948 Co Axial London Limited Edition
The Seamaster 1948 Co-Axial London Limited Edition is a redesign of the very first OMEGA Seamaster was launched in 1948, the last time London hosted the Olympic Games and stands as a timeless.
With a 39 mm polished and brushed stainless steel case with a polished bezel and lugs.
Its crown is embossed with a vintage OMEGA logo.
With an 18 Kt yellow gold medallion embossed with the London 2012 Olympic Games logo is fixed in the caseback.
While the watch's stunning exterior recalls its legendary ancestor, a different story is told inside the case:
The Seamaster 1948 is powered by the exclusive OMEGA caliber 2202, an officially-certified chronometer equipped with a Co-Axial escapement on three-levels and free sprung-balance.
The Seamaster 1948 has an opaline silver dial with a small seconds subdial at 6 o'clock.
It has an applied 18 Ct white gold vintage OMEGA logo and name as well as 18 Ct white gold Arabic numerals at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock and hour markers at the other positions.
The watch features diamond-polished hour and minute hands and a blue steel small seconds hand.
Being officially certified by COSC as a chronometer, the movement is quite accurate (for a mechanical watch) and will offer you a decent power reserve of 48 hours.
