Every millisecond in the Olympic Games since 1932 has been time-kept by Omega – Every stride, sprint, and moment of wonder has been witnessed and recorded by an Omega. Documenting history made through the decades, it’s almost poetic that the brand has become a part of the Game’s legacy – cementing its name against every new record achieved and moment of triumph. Being the first commercial watchmaker to bear such an honour, this edition of the Olympic Games will mark OMEGA’s 31st time as an Official Timekeeper. What began with a nifty 30 split-second chronograph nearly 90 years ago has grown into a mega-chronometer toolkit comprising of machinery weighing a hefty 450 tons, mastering the art of millisecond-accurate timekeeping.

The Commemorative caseback includes Omega's NAIAD Lock

More so, Omega has been celebrating this essence of Olympic chronometry on-and-off-track, with special edition commemorative timepieces right since the Melbourne Games 2006’s Seamaster XVI. As we countdown to Paris 2024, Omega unveils yet another Olympic novelty – the Seamaster Diver 300M “Paris 2024” Special Edition enriched with a bezel-full of 18K Moonshine™ Gold – Omega’s very own yellow gold alloy.

The timepiece is crafted out of stainless steel and 18K Moonshine™ Gold which offers a distinct contrast and high resistance to fading. On this bezel, we also see a single dot of Super-LumiNova at 12 o’clock. The dial too, comes with its own eye-catching elegance. Also present, is a stainless-steel helium escape valve at 10 o’clock. Cut out of white ceramic, it receives a matte finish contrasted with polished waves – signature Seamaster. We see a date window at six o’clock which boasts an interesting Paris 2023 accent – the typography inscribed in black is the official font of the upcoming Olympic Games. Furthermore, the central seconds hand carries a tiny yet prominent Paris 2024 emblem which replaces the usual luminous marker. The indexes and hands match the bezel and are done 18K Moonshine™ Gold, creating a nifty 3D effect against the white ceramic dial.
