Omega has recently announced the release of their new Speedmaster Mark II "Rio 2016". The new version of Omega's Mark II new watch has been released to celebrate the 2016 Olympic games in Rio, which are set to being 2 years from now. To differentiate this watch from the regular Mark II, it has subdials rimmed in bronze, 18K yellow gold, and 925 silver. These features are clearly made to represent the three olympic medals. The watch also features Omega's "glidelock clasp", where the length of the bracelet can be adjusted with the press of a button (picture of the clasp below). Inside the 42.4mm stainless steel case is the Omega calibre 3330, a column wheel chronograph featuring the Co-axial escapement and the Si14 balance spring. The watch will be a limited edition of 2,016 pieces.
