The London 2012 watch­

Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial Chronograph “London 2012”

Long name, corking watch. In honour of London 2012 Omega has brought out a special model in its celebrated Seamaster line. First introduced in 1947, the Seamaster – ostensibly its diving watch range, but one that has taken a multitude of forms over the years, from ultra-rugged action pieces to refined dress watches – represents one cornerstone of Omega’s sporting DNA (the other being the Speedmaster).

The Olympic watch falls under the Aqua Terra range of Seamasters, notable for the elegant striped lines that pattern the PVD-coated dial. A chronograph with a 30-minute and 12-hour timing subdials, its movement contains the Co-Axial escapement system Omega has developed in-house which enables less wear-and-tear and greater accuracy, and is one of the finest horological mechanisms around. The back of the watch is engraved with the London 2012 logo.
