When discussing Omega’s limited editions, it is usually pieces from the Speedmaster or Seamaster lines that spring to mind — and surely in regards to the Rio 2016 releases, it is the Mark II Speedy and the brightly-bezelled Seamaster which were chewing up most of the bandwidth. But if you want my opinion, Omega official timekeeper olympic games replica watch‘s best Rio LE is that this exceptionally classic bit. Designated an’Olympic Official Timekeeper’ it’s among three (very) limited edition chronographs, all slightly different, provided in white, yellow or, in this circumstance, pink gold
It is a conventional chronograph in the purest sense, a perfectly sized 39mm instance, together with polished bezel and brushed centre segment, and distinctive lugs. It’s powered with the Co-Axial Calibre 3203, a manually wound movement that is sadly hidden away behind a commemorative caseback. However, the most striking part is the dial. With its abundant white lacquer finish, finely composed black Breguet-style numerals along with blued-steel hands it’s an image of classic perfection.
It’s tasteful on the wrist, as golden chronographs are wont to be and, aside from the modern size and’Co-Axial’ descriptor on the dial, which may well have been made in 1946 instead of 2016. But aside from being a classic take on an outstanding watch, it is a reminder that there’s no point trying to pigeonhole Omega olympic official timekeeper replica watch review. Yes, the manufacturer generates substantial numbers of high-profile special versions, such as the main Olympic releases as well as the James Bond watches — but in addition, it makes magnificent ones like this, with little or no fanfare, just because it can.
