You might know the Olympics as the gathering of superhuman folks pitting their strengths and skills against each other in a bid to win pieces of metal, and of course, global adulation. This occurrence happens every four years and as the entire world knows by now, host country Tokyo had to postpone the 2020 games a year later because of a virus that shall not be named. Though we are in that “a year later” moment, there are still doubts that the games would go according to plan (or even at all). For those struggling with the idea of will-they-or-won’t-they, just know that there is one thing that will remain constant in this scenario: Omega’s participation. Apart from the groundbreaking tech that it has been working on for decades to improve the accuracy of marking time at the games, Omega continues to seize the moment to launch special wristwatches that commemorate the event. Though not numbered or limited, its recent unveiling of the Seamaster Diver 300M “Tokyo 2020” edition – the third in the series of Tokyo 2020 watches – is perhaps a memento worthy of the collection. The grandkids would want to hear about the story someday and this wristwatch has one to tell.
