Going for gold: The Omega Seamaster 300M ‘Paris 2024’ 

One of the world’s most inspirational cities is set to become a global stage for athletes in less than a year’s time.

On July 26, 2024 the Summer Games of the XXXIII Olympiad will open with a grand ceremony – and to help celebrate it a certain watchmaker will pay tribute with a special edition launch.

And as you might expect – as it’s held the title since 1932 – Omega has been crowned official timekeeper for Paris 2024.

Its new 42mm Seamaster 300M Paris 2024 Special Edition looks fairly standard in terms of features with the exception of an 18-carat Moonshine bezel – a nice touch paying homage to the event.

But if you’re itching to get your hands on the fancy timepiece, you’ll have to grab your passport as for now, the watch is only available at the Omega boutiques in Paris.

More details 

We love the matte-finish ceramic white dial and the way it complements delicate gold features.

If you take a close look at the seconds hand you’ll see the Paris 2024 emblem where the usual luminous marker would be. Cool, hey?

The Moonshine Gold bezel ring features a laser-structured diving scale polished and in positive relief, and for extra luminosity, a single dot of Super-LumiNova at 12 o’clock. We also like the Paris 2024 medallion on the caseback, complete with the Olympic rings below. 

Taking a look inside, you’ll find the calibre 8800 with an impressive 55-hour power reserve. Both the exceptional movement and the entire watch have passed eight tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), guaranteeing the industry’s highest standards of precision, performance and magnetic resistance.

Moving to the bracelet, it’s stainless steel and features the new Quick Change System but goes well with the striking Moonshine Gold bezel.

On the whole, it’s a nice-looking Seamaster Professional and to ensure it stays a safe keepsake, it is delivered inside a white presentation box, complete with Paris 2024 detailing that matches the OMEGA Countdown Clock at Port de la Bourdonnais.

Special editions

Omega is well versed when it comes to special editions. For the 2020 Tokyo Games, the brand introduced the Aqua Terra collection’s first ceramic dial with a 41mm offering in stainless steel. 

The ceramic dial was polished blue and included a laser-engraved pattern inspired by the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games emblem. But there were only 2,020 pieces available. The Paris Games watch is not a limited edition but certainly has a je ne sais quoi.
