Needless to say, bold and colorful models dominate many of the limited editions that Omega releases around the Olympic Games. Dressier than the subtle Olympic Games watches we saw recently, the Best Omega Seamaster Olympic Games Gold Collection watches come in yellow gold, Omega’s Sedna gold, and a brand new “Canopus” white gold to channel the Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals that winning Olympians receive on the podium.
On a more petty note, the only thing I may have done without is the enamel minute track on the inside tips of the indices. I feel it breaks up the dial and takes away from the overall continuity and simplicity of the watch. I think they would have served much better aesthetically around the perimeter of the dial so they didn’t break up the beautifully finished leaf handset – though I understand where it could be argued that it would take away from the domed dial. That being said, looking at some vintage Omega Replica Watches UK ads, it’s clear that this minute track is firmly rooted in the brand’s specific history with both this watch and event.
The handset is the perfect length for the dial and overall legibility of the Fake Omega Seamaster Watches. The hour hand almost microscopically reaches the end of the indices, and the minute hand overlaps them just enough to create a slight gap between the tip and the edge of the dial, which I feel would benefit from the minute track instead of the blank space. The seconds hand extends a few millimeters longer than the minute hand and comes just about to the edge of the dial. As ridiculous as it may seem to linger on the handset, it’s one of the factors that can make or break a simple three-hand Cheap Omega Replica for a lot of potential buyers, myself included. Succumbing to a handset that’s too long or too short is easy to do in this segment and I’m always impressed by a well finished, and well-measured dress watch handset.
Prominently on the dial, and printed in enamel, is the Omega logo in red which has been used only on Omega Replica Watches like the pocket watch. I love that this subtle, yet immediately clear nod is the only thing on the dial that gives the true DNA of the watch away. As mentioned earlier, the case will come in three gold alloys – Omega’s Sedna gold, yellow gold, and a new Canopus Gold. The case itself is polished and the small onion crown is a perfect size for the collection. One of the coolest features is Omega’s Canopus gold.
The design restraint shown on the dial here is a success conceptually and in execution. I’d love to see a steel non-limited version that still retains the Olympics-associated red logo. It’s not like the Omega Replica enthusiast community has ever gone totally bonkers over something as seemingly banal and mundane as introducing red text on a dial.
