Omega Seamaster Rio Olympics

This 2016 Omega Seamaster Rio Olympics is a rare limited edition piece released specifically to commemorate the brand’s involvement in the Rio Olympics  – a classic and collectible Omega Seamaster.

Alongside the ubiquitous Speedmaster, the Seamaster is probably the best known of all Omega models and there’s a very good reason for that.

Although it’s been around since the mid 1940’s mainly as a dress watch, in the 1990’s the Seamaster name was given to a revamped series of sports watches.

We had two customers who bought their Rio watches simultaneously in 2016 and they have both decided to have a change simultaneously too – we sold the first one very quickly recently and this is the second.

Only made in 2016 as a limited edition of 3016 pieces, the black wave dial is familiar and the polished black ceramic bezel ring includes a diving scale filled with white Super-LumiNova and numerals filled with red, blue, yellow and green lacquer, all representing the colours of the Olympic rings.

While this watch has been worn, it must have been worn both very occasionally and very carefully because it is superb – there are vurtually no marks to show for its four years and it’s pretty much like new.

As well as the limited edition numbered papers, the correct Omega boxes, papers and books complete the package and they’re all in great condition.

A great watch with a great pedigree.

Just tested by Omega authorised watchmakers S Michlmayr & Co and running smooth and strong, it is supplied with a 12 month warranty.
