    Adding to Omega’s spread of limited-edition collectibles following the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing are two new watches celebrating the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. The official sponsor and timekeeper for the event has presented the Seamaster Aqua Terra Tokyo 2020 and the Seamaster Planet Ocean 2020 (pictured) exactly one year before the games begin. The former sports a ceramic dial (an Aqua Terra first) in blue with a laser-engraved finish that echoes the pattern of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games emblem, a matching rubber strap, and is powered by the Master Chronometer Calibre 8900. The latter features a ceramic bezel with a Liquidmetal diving scale, with the number 20 filled with red ceramic in honour of next year’s Olympics, and a red-tipped seconds hand as a nod to the Japanese flag. This model houses the Master Chronometer Calibre 8800. Both are limited to 2,020 pieces.
