Omega Creates Seamaster Diver 300m "Vancouver 2010" Limited Edition

Nov 24, 2009
The renowned Omega brand is launching exceptional limited series timepieces to mark the start of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, which is just 100 days away.

The Omega Seamaster Diver 300m “Vancouver 2010” Limited Edition will be released in two stainless steel case interpretations, measuring 41mm and 36.25 mm in diameter. Every version will be issued in a limited number of 2010 individually numbered items. The distinctive flair of every unit is the brand’s co-Axial caliber 2500, a chronometer-certified movement.

The Seamaster Diver 300m “Vancouver 2010” Limited Edition watches possess all the key characteristics of timekeepers, created intentionally for pro-divers. They are equipped with a unidirectional rotating bezel, as well as a helium-escape valve. Furthermore, the timepieces are water-resistant to 300 meters.

The case-back of the Omega watches is marked with the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games logo. It exposes “Ilanaak”, which was chosen to be the symbol of the Games. This symbol is represented by the figures constructed from piled stones, the Canadian First Nations people used to greet foreigners with. The logo’s name, “Ilanaak”, is borrowed from the Iniktitut language, meaning “friend”. The case-back is etched with the Limited Edition number (0000/2010).

It is the 24th time the watchmaking house Omega has been appointed as Official Olympic Timekeeper. For the first time the company was asked to serve as an Official Timekeeper in 1932, at Los Angeles Olympic Games.

The release of the Omega Seamaster Diver 300m “Vancouver 2010” Limited Edition watches is definitely the best possible way for the brand to express its commitment to the Olympic Movement.

These spectacular timepieces, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, demonstrate a white lacquered dial, as well as a red-anodized aluminum bezel featuring silver indexes and numbers.

Playing with color contrasts, the models evoke the Canadian flag, which reveals red maple leaf against a stark white background. The case of every model embraces a white dial, which is suggestive of snow and ice. Both of them are undoubtedly an important part of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

Another special feature of the Omega watches is presented by the colored Olympic rings, exposed on the counterweight of the chronograph seconds hand that is red-tipped and rhodium-finished. The dial of every item is equipped with hands and indexes provided with white Super-LumiNova coating for a high level of visibility in darkness.
