Tokyo 2020 didn’t get the rub the green for Omega when it launched its tickers in celebration of the Olympics. But hopefully when the Winter Games comes around next February in Beijing, this wristwatch won’t look like an awkward reminder of what was meant to be. That said, this Aqua Terra plays up to the grandeur of the occasion with a dial work that matches the hype. Yes, that’s not just any plain ol’ silvered dial looking worse for wear as Omega has taken on the winter theme to create a frosted pattern on the metal which was laser-engraved. While the Winter Games isn’t explicitly expressed on the dial work, Omega has made it a point to honour the occasion by including a three-dimensional logo of the Beijing 2022 event on the closed case back. Though not a limited edition, this timekeeper does have some added significance. It marks a period of time that people from all corners of the world are uniting and seeking solace in normalcy. Now, wouldn’t that make a great backstory to tell the kids?
