Omega celebrates one-year to the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 with the unveiling of a countdown clock in Marunouchi Central Square in downtown Tokyo. To mark the event, they also introduced two new limited edition Tokyo-2020-themed watches, an Aqua Terra – the first model with a ceramic dial with polished blue finish and a laser-engraved Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games emblem, and a Planet Ocean inspired by the Japanese flag.
Inside the 41 mm stainless steel case you will find beating the anti-magnetic Master Chronometer Calibre 8900, visible through the sapphire crystal back, also decorated with the emblem of the Tokyo 2020 Games.
Besides the blue strap that matches wonderfully the ceramic dial, the presentation box also includes a stainless steel bracelet.
I never thought I will ever find a white watch attractive, but this Planet Ocean just blows my mind. Of course, those who know me won’t be surprised, I’m a Japanophile and this Omega is very Japanese. The continuity of the pure white ceramic dial and bezel are interrupted by two red accents placed in a very smart way. A little red dot on the lollypop central seconds hand and the 20 mark on the bezel.
The 39.5 mm case is in stainless steel and includes a white ceramic bezel ring with its diving scale in Liquidmetal – a special metallic glass alloy developed by Omega. Under the hood, you will find beating a Calibre 8900, just like with the Aqua Terra model.
The watch is delivered on a white leather strap and includes a stainless steel bracelet and a NATO strap.
Both watches are limited to… you guessed it, 2020 pieces.
