PRE-BASEL GAMES CHANGERS
Omega styles up with natty arrivals for the Lunar New Year
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.
