From Omega: The Omega Seamaster Diver 'Vancouver 2010' Limited Edition is being produced in the 41mm and 36mm versions, each in a release of 2,010 numbered pieces and featuring the Omega Co-Axial caliber 2500.
The watches feature white lacquered dials and red-anodised aluminium bezel rings. These contrasting colors recall the Canadian flag with its red maple leaf against a stark white background. The white dials are also reminiscent of the snow and ice which will play such an important role in the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
The watches' connection to the Games in Vancouver is further reinforced by the colored Olympic rings on the counterweight of the red-tipped, rhodium-plated chronograph seconds hand. Their hands and indexes are coated with white SuperLumiNova which at night or in limited light conditions casts a soft blue reflection.
This Limited Edition is equipped with professional diving features such as a unidirectional rotating bezel, a helium-escape valve and it is water resistant to a depth of 300 meters. The caseback is embossed with the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games logo which features 'Ilanaak', the symbol of the Games. The caseback is engraved with the Limited Edition number (0000/2010).
Omega will be serving as Official Olympic Timekeeper for the 24th time at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver and will be carrying on a legacy dating back to the 1932 Los Angeles Olympic Games. Limited Edition of 2,010
