As we inch closer to the spectacle of the Paris 2024 Olympics, that the world watches with anticipation, OMEGA, the official timekeeper, has unveiled a unique masterpiece—the Seamaster Diver 300M “Paris 2024” Special Edition, let’s just call it OMEGA Paris 2024—a timepiece that marries tradition, elegance, and sport.
Recognized as the heart-beat of every Olympic event since 1932, OMEGA is marking its 31st year of recording the dream-filled moments of world-class athletes. The OMEGA Paris 2024 timepiece, set to be available exclusively at Parisian OMEGA boutiques, is a shining embodiment of the brand’s lasting commitment to the Olympic spirit.
Constructed with stainless steel and OMEGA’s proprietary 18K Moonshine™ gold alloy, this 42mm marvel subtly evokes the luster of Olympic gold medals. The innovative alloy offers a softer hue and superior resistance against discoloration, making it a fitting choice for the watch’s bezel. The bezel stands out with a positive relief laser-structured diving scale and a Super-LumiNova dot at 12 o’clock, both glistening in gold.
The dial of this Seamaster Diver 300M, laser-engraved on white ceramic, showcases an eye-catching matte finish interrupted by polished raised waves. In a playful nod to the Paris 2024 theme, the date display at 6 o’clock incorporates the event’s unique typography for its numerals, and the central seconds hand proudly bears the Paris 2024 emblem.
Further distinguishing this timepiece is the commemorative case back, graced with an 18-carat Moonshine™ gold medallion. The inlaid medallion features the signature Paris 2024 emblem, exquisitely polished on a laser-sanded background. The Paris 2024 inscription and stainless steel Olympic rings, polished on a frosted structure, harmoniously complete the emblem.
Comfort is not compromised for style, as this watch sits securely on a stainless steel bracelet equipped with a patented quick strap change system. The feature makes it easy to interchange with a blue, white or red rubber strap, or a Paris 2024 dedicated NATO strap.
In true OMEGA fashion, the Seamaster Diver 300M “Paris 2024” Special Edition, or just OMEGA Paris 2024, is not just a statement of style but also of performance. Housing the Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8800, the watch is tested and certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) to meet the highest standards of precision.
As we look forward to the 2024 Olympics set to commence on July 26, 2024, OMEGA’s 90-year legacy as the Official Timer of the event is embodied in this spectacular watch. With its innovative sports measurement technologies, the brand continues to capture the most significant moments of top athletes worldwide.
For those eager to own this iconic timepiece, the OMEGA Paris 2024 (Ref: 522.214.171.124.04.001) is priced at 8,900 € and will only be available at OMEGA boutiques in Paris.
