mega’s Seamaster Olympic Games Collection celebrates the brand’s unique timekeeping legac y through five unique watches. The collection represents the different colours of the famous Rings of the Olympic Games, with models available in black, yellow, green, blue or red. As well as having a vibrant colour design and playful spirit, the collection has been inspired by several Omega stopwatches from the brand’s timekeeping past. This can be seen on the domed black and white dial of each watch, designed to be read at a glance, with sporty hands and bold hour markers on black, set in sharp contrast with an easily-readable minute track on a white outer circle. Another Pre-Basel 2018 highlight is the new De Ville Trésor, a collection offered in a diverse range of materials and colours. The Trésor delivers a classic design with a truly modern edge. Each model is distinguished by its thin case, available in either 39 mm or 36 mm sizes, with diamond paving that curves along each side. A single diamond is also set within the crown. This is included in a radiant flower, created from five Omega logos in red liquid ceramic. The timepieces are also noticeable for their transferred or embossed Roman numerals, which elegantly circle the lacquered dials. On each Trésor model, Omega has included a special mirrored caseback with a “Her Time” design.
