The Omega Seahorse series was born in 1948, just as London last hosted the Olympic Games. In commemoration of the 2012 Olympic Games held again in London, Omega specially launched the 1948 coaxial ‘London 2012’ watch of the hippocampus series, and officially released on the first anniversary of the opening ceremony of the London Olympics.
At the London 2012 Olympic Games, Omega will be the 25th Olympic Games designated timing; coincidentally, Omega also provided timing services for the 1948 London Olympics.
The Omega Seamaster Series 1948 Coaxial & rdquo; London 2012 & rdquo; Limited Edition Watch is a replica of Omega’s first Seamaster automatic watch. The fashion style of more than 60 years ago continues to this day, showing the eternal classic charm. The 39 mm stainless steel case is polished and frosted with a polished bezel and lugs, and the crown is etched with the classic Omega logo Ω. The 18K yellow gold case back is etched with the emblem of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Water-resistant to 120 meters.
The hippocampus 1948 features a creamy silver dial with a small seconds dial at 6 o’clock. The classic Omega logo in 18K white gold is located on the dial. The 12 o’clock, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions are indicated by 18K white gold Arabic numerals, and the other positions are marked by the hour scale. The hour and minute hands of this model are polished and the small second hand is made of blue steel.
This dazzling design reproduces the legendary watch in history, and the case contains a new movement technology: Haima 1948 uses Omega’s unique 2202 movement, officially certified by the Swiss Observatory, equipped with 3 layers Coaxial escapement and balance without balance spring.
This special limited edition hippocampus watch has a black alligator leather strap with a classic polished steel buckle. The Hippocampus 1948 coaxial ‘London 2012’ is limited to 1,948 pieces, and each watch is carried in a special London 2012 gift box.
