Meet The Limited Edition Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean “Pyeongchang 2018”

As Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games since 1932, Omega is used to turning a second into a celebration. The Swiss watchmaker unveiled a ceremonious countdown clock at City Hall Plaza in Seoul exactly one year ahead of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, with the precise moment being witnessed by luminaries like IOC Member & Chair Gunilla Lindberg, President of the Pyeongchang 2018 Organising Committee Lee Hee-beom, as well as key political figures in Korea. Naturally, the occasion is marked by a new collectible timepiece as part of the Omega “Pyeongchang 2018” collection.

The Seamaster Planet Ocean “Pyeongchang 2018” follows the two-years-to-go release of the Seamaster Aqua Terra “Pyeongchang 2018”, adopting a more striking appearance in the bold colours of the Korean flag. Cased in stainless steel, it features a polished blue ceramic dial and applied rhodium-plated indexes coated with white Super-LumiNova emitting a blue glow. The same luminescence highlights the hour and seconds hands, while the minute hand and dot on the bezel glows green. Additionally, the watch’s unidirectional rotating bezel features the world’s first polished blue ceramic ring inlaid with rubber (in red for the initial 15 minutes) and a Liquidmetal dive scale.

On the back, the new alveol-patterned screw-in case back is engraved in blue with the words “Planet Ocean” and “Limited Edition”, together with the limited edition number, while “Pyeongchang 2018” and the Olympic Winter Games logo appear on the sapphire crystal. Also exhibited is the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8900, a METAS-certified movement that has passed eight rigorous tests over 10 days as determined by Omega and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology.

Limited to 2,018 pieces, each Seamaster Planet Ocean “Pyeongchang 2018” is presented on a blue structured rubber strap with blue-red rubber lining and delivered in a special commemorative box (which includes an extra stainless steel bracelet), making it a collector-worthy item in anticipation of the coming Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang.
