Omega Seamaster 1948 Co-Axial London 2012 Limited Edition unveiled


As the mega sporting event, London Olympics comes up next year; the official timekeepers are busying themselves by bringing out limited-edition special watches for your collection. For the 2012 games, they have revived the Omega Seamaster, which was launched in 1948, a day before the 1984 London Olympic Games Opening Ceremony. The Seamaster 1948 Co-Axial London 2012 Limited Edition will be set inside a 39mm stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal and an 18-carat yellow gold medallion on the case back that sports an embossed London 2012 Olympic Games logo.

Limited to 1,948 units only, the watch comes with an opaline silver dial with a tiny seconds subdial located at the 6 o’clock marker. The vintage Omega logo is created with 18-carat white gold and sports 18-carat white gold Arabic numerals at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions and other hour markers. The watch works on the Swiss automatic Omega in-house 2202 movement with a Co-Axial escapement on three-levels and a free sprung-balance. Equipped with 120 meters of water resistance, the watch sports diamond-polished hour and minute hands finished with a blued steel seconds hand.
