Omega reveals Vancouver 2010 watch

As the Omega clock counting down to the start of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver reaches the minus-one-year mark, the watch brand is releasing two special limited-edition watches to commemorate the occasion.

The Omega Seamaster Diver 300m "Vancouver 2010" Limited Edition is being produced in 41 mm and 36.25 mm versions, each in a release of 2,010 numbered pieces and featuring the OMEGA Co-Axial caliber 2500. The watches feature white lacquered dials and red-anodized aluminum bezel rings to represent the Canadian flag with its red maple leaf against a stark white background. The white dials are also reminiscent of the snow and ice, which play an important role in the Winter Olympics.

The watches connection to the Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver is further reinforced by the colored Olympic rings on the counterweight of the seconds hand, which casts a soft blue reflection in limited light. In addition, the caseback is embossed with the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games logo and is engraved with the limited-edition number.

The Seamaster Diver 300m "Vancouver 2010" Limited Edition is equipped with professional diving features such as a unidirectional rotating bezel, a helium-escape valve and is water-resistant to 300 meters.

Omega will be serving as the Official Olympic Timekeeper for the 24th time at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver.
