Happy Olympic eve! After far too long waiting and wondering, the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics are finally ready to kick off tomorrow, Friday, July 23, 2021. For all of us at HODINKEE, that means a special spotlight on OMEGA, the long-term Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games. We have a number of special stories set to run over the next two weeks that will delve deeper into the brand’s historic sporting partnership with the Olympics, but first, we have watches. That’s right, we’ve rounded up a small selection of three pre-owned OMEGAthat were released for the 2016 and – yup – the 2020 Summer Olympics that are starting in less than 24 hours.
In 2018, OMEGA released a collection of five Speedmaster Professionals, with five different dial colors, representing each of the Olympic rings. Limited to 2,020 pieces, the “Blue Ring” example we have today is simply attractive – Olympic association or not.
