PRE-BASEL GAMES CHANG­ERS

Omega styles up with natty ar­rivals for the Lu­nar New Year

#Legend - - TIME KEEPER -

OMEGA IN­TRO­DUCES TWO new time­pieces as part of its pre-Basel high­lights, one of which en­cap­su­lates the brand’s Olympic prove­nance; it has been Of­fi­cial Time­keeper of the Olympic Games 28 times since 1932. This 86-year com­mit­ment has de­fined the brand’s pre­ci­sion, in­no­va­tion and pas­sion. No doubt Greek ath­letic leg­end Dis­cobo­lus would have made Omega his daily wearer of choice, had the brand ex­isted in an­cient times; such is the bal­ance, har­mony and sym­me­tria of its wares.

For 2018, Omega launches the Sea­mas­ter Olympic Games Col­lec­tion, a se­ries of five dis­tinct watches redo­lent of the Olympic rings in black, yel­low, green, blue or red. Espous­ing a vi­brant colour de­sign and play­ful spirit, the col­lec­tion was in­spired by stop­watches from the brand’s past – such as those used at the

1976 Games in Mon­treal and Inns­bruck.

On the case-back, there’s an an­odised alu­minium ring that in­cludes host cities and dates from Omega’s Olympic Games jour­ney, from Los Angeles 1932 up to Los Angeles 2028.

Mean­while, in a sep­a­rate uni­verse where time takes on a more style-minded mantra, Omega in­tro­duces the De Ville Tré­sor. For a ca­sual day out or so­phis­ti­cated evening fare, the watch be­speaks of the wearer’s over­all style, adding a defin­ing touch for any look.

The Tré­sor de­liv­ers clas­sic de­sign with a mod­ern edge, and thin case, in ei­ther 39mm or 36mm sizes, with di­a­mond pavé that curves along each side. A sin­gle di­a­mond is also set within the crown. The watch is also dis­tin­guished by the trans­ferred or em­bossed Ro­man nu­mer­als, cir­cling the lac­quered di­als.

Each Tré­sor in­cludes a spe­cial mir­rored case-back with a “Her Time” de­sign. While pro­vid­ing a use­ful ac­ces­sory, the in­clu­sion con­jures the idea of re­flec­tion, af­ford­ing women a re­minder of who they are and of the nat­u­ral charisma they so in­tu­itively pos­sess.
