The second OMEGA limited edition model commemorating next year’s Olympic Games in Beijing will be launched on 25 October 2007, 288 days before the Opening Ceremony. The collection, based on the phenomenally successful OMEGA De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph Ladies’, comes in three colours alluding to the Olympic podium: yellow gold, white gold and red gold.

OMEGA and the Olympic Games have been inextricably linked for the past 75 years, ever since the famous Swiss watch company became Official Timekeeper to the 1932 Games in Los Angeles. Next year will be the 23rd time OMEGA has taken on that responsibility, a tribute to its precision and reliability.
Now, in honour of the Games of the XXIX Olympiad, OMEGA is unveiling a special collection of watches for distribution in China and certain selected OMEGA stores worldwide. The theme for OMEGA’s new collection revolves around the number “8”, considered a lucky one in China.

The collection was launched on 8 August this year with the Constellation limited edition, and following the launch of the three gold ladies’ De Ville chronographs there will be subsequent limited edition launches 188 days, 88 days and eight days before the Games, with the sixth and final launch on the day the Olympic Games begin, 08/08/2008. The number of models available in each limited edition varies, but the figure will always end in an “8”. Thus 288 of the new De Ville ladies’ watches have been made in each of the three colours.

Along with the white mother-of-pearl dial and alligator strap, the fundamental characteristics of the OMEGA De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph Ladies’ are all there: the 0.08-carat diamond briolette set on the crown; the polished 18-carat gold bezel set with 42 diamonds; the elliptical chronograph counters; the 35mm case; and the exclusive OMEGA Calibre 3313 with Co-Axial escapement.

But of course it is the differences that make this model part of the Beijing Collection. Whether yellow gold, white gold or red gold, each has 18-carat gold dial and hands to match the case; the hour markers are set with one, two or three diamonds; and there are gold outer rings on the counters and white Super-LumiNova on the hands. On the counterweight of the chronograph seconds hand are the five Olympic rings, while stamped on the caseback is the Beijing 2008 logo – both characteristics common to all six of the OMEGA Olympic Collection limited edition lines.

The third in the series, a special piece from OMEGA’s celebrated Seamaster collection, will be launched on 2 February 2008, 188 days before the Games.
