As the world’s greatest athletes prepare for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Omega has unveiled a second new timepiece as part of the “Rio 2016″ collection (the Speedmaster Rio Mark II “Rio 2016″ was unveiled last year).
Representing the famous Olympic rings, this color theme is continued on the rotating inner-bezel to convey the unity that the rings signify.
First released in 1969, the Bullhead style was once used by rally drivers to time their laps. Now, the spirit of speed and precision will merge seamlessly into Olympic history.
The watch is cased in steel, with Omega’s automatic mechanical co-axial chronograph Caliber 3113 inside. Only 316 pieces will be produced. The price of this piece has yet to be announced but we get the sense that it is likely crack the five figure mark.
