The resolute athletic spirit of the very best is in the air, permeating the landscape of Rio and transforming the city into a unique, living and breathing organism full of dynamic vibrancy. An infectious attitude like none other, this essence has spilled over to Omega as they celebrate the collective optimism by capturing Rio's lively sights with a limited edition Seamaster Diver 300M dedicated to the metropolitan capital of Brazil.
Inspired by the famous Copacabana beach and the energetic vibe of its boardwalk, the Swiss watchmaker translates the wave pattern found on the street's mosaic tiles into a stylised dial design. Offsetting this distinct lacquered watch face is a uni-directional rotating diving bezel in polished black ceramic, marked with indexes bearing the colours of the Olympic rings to signify the vitality of Rio and the Olympiad contestants. A grand commemoration to sportsmanship, this elite diving watch is emblazoned on the back with the Rio 2016 logo and engraved with an individual number proclaiming its exclusivity.
A timepiece extolling cutting-edge expertise and artistic craftsmanship, Omega has married the aesthetics of the games with signature elements of the Seasmaster collection, retaining the date window at 3 o'clock, the helium escape valve and rhodium-plated cut-out Superluminova hands. Encased in sturdy stainless steel that locks out water penetration up to 300 metres deep, at the core of the Seamaster Diver Rio 2016 beats the Omega Calibre 2500 — the heart symbolic of the unflagging drive to attain greatness.
The limited edition Seamaster Diver 300M Rio 2016 is available at Omega boutique at Ion Orchard.
