Omega has launched a special edition of the Seamaster 300-meter diving watch, “Beijing 2022” (model: 522.214.171.124.03.001), with a public price of RMB 49600.
I believe that when many see this watch, they will think of Rolex’s “Blue Yacht” (model: 126622), gray outer ring, blue dial, three-hand calendar, stainless steel case, and stainless steel strap. Stylistically, the two watches are indeed very similar.
First, regarding product positioning, the Rolex “yacht” is 300 meters higher than the Omega Seamaster. The name shows that the “yacht” is for people who play yachts, and the 300-meter seahorse is for people who dive. A saying is also that “the status on the deck is higher than below the deck.” In terms of actual performance, the waterproof depth of the Rolex “yacht” is only 100 meters, while the 300 meters of the Omega Seamaster is just as the name suggests. Watch replicas.
Regarding materials, the Rolex “yacht” uses an oyster steel case and bracelet, and the bezel is 950 platinum. In contrast, the Omega Seamaster 300 meters uses a stainless steel case and strap, and the bezel is grade 5 titanium. From the perspective of material cost, Rolex is higher. But the grade 5 titanium bezel used by the Omega Seamaster 300m, from the visual effect of the picture, can achieve the result of platinum, which is a bit interesting.
These two watches are designed with a dense bottom. The Rolex “yacht” is still a smooth steel plate, and the Omega Seamaster 300 meters is a special edition of “Beijing 2022”. The bottom cover on the back is engraved with the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. The emblem still has a specific commemorative significance. Replicas watch china.
Regarding movement, the Rolex “Yacht” uses a 3235 campaign with a power reserve of 70 hours. It has a blue Parachrom hairspring and Paraflex cushioning and excellent chronometer certification. The Omega Seamaster 300m is still the 8800 Zhizhen Observatory movement, equipped with a silicon hairspring, and the power reserve is slightly worse at 55 hours. The travel time of these two watches is relatively leading in the same class, but the standard of Rolex is higher.
As a partner of the Olympic Committee, Omega’s particular watch for each Olympic Games is worth looking forward to.
Is the Omega Seamaster 300-meter diving watch “Beijing 2022” special edition watch worth RMB 49600? Compared with the ordinary steel version of the Seamaster 300-meter diving watch, the public price of this watch is RMB 7800 more expensive. It brings a dense bottom cover, a grade 5 titanium alloy bezel, and the “five-ring element” on the dial. “design. The only flaw lies in the creation of the dense bottom. The Omega 8800 Master Chronometer movement is polished at the upper-middle level at the same price. It is a pity to cover it with a bottom cover directly.
