Omega’s latest Olympic watch, the Seamaster Diver 300M “Beijing 2022” Special Edition, comes in a 42 mm x 14 mm stainless steel case with a grade 5 titanium unidirectional dive bezel. The ceramic blue sunray dial features Omega’s signature laser-engraved pattern and applied indices, four of which are subtly accented with Olympic flag colors (at 2, 4, 8, and 10 o’clock). Skeletonized hour and minute hands, and a lollipop seconds hand, display the time, powered by Omega’s caliber 8800 master chronometer movement. The dive watch has a screw-down crown, commemorative Bejing Olympics solid screw-in caseback, a helium escape valve, and a water-resistance rating of 300 meters. $6,100
