Omega Unique No. 8 Collection to Mark 2008 Beijing Olympic Games

Jul 31, 2008
As a great way to celebrate the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the Omega Company is to unveil a unique set of watches, destined to become a great discovery for avid watch collectors.

The Omega Beijing 2008 Unique No. 8 Collection has been based on the concept of the lucky "number 8", a meaningful symbol in Asian numerology.

The collection comprises each of the 32 Omega watch models licensed for the XXIX Olympiad, and three pieces of the Omega Olympic Split Seconds Chronograph 1932 pocket watch, one model of each in red, white, and yellow gold.

The display case housing the timepieces is worth special attention. Omega has created a unique case in the best traditions of the Chinese architecture.

The one-of-a-kind display case is crafted from black walnut and provided with a rich lacquer finish. The case has acquired the form of an 8-level pagoda. It sparkles imagination by its richly ornamented sliding drawers.

The top part of the pagoda reveals a special decoration paying tribute to the Beijing 2008 Games and the remarkable history of the Omega Company world-famous as a timekeeper for 23 Olympic Games.
