    What do you think will happen to this watch? Will it be overlooked by customers because its not really a special edition? Will COVID Olympics drive down interest of such watch ?

    Opinions welcome

    I looked at it and kind of like it. But yeah its not much of a special edition, and since I really don't care about a summer Olympics which didn't happen, it kind of takes away from any special-ness. The price also seems a little high. I'm no artist but they could have incorporated the Japanese red sun into the dial to add some dimension.

    I am a fan of the new Seamaster design, particularly the ceramic bezel and lasered dial and brilliant colours. If I had to I would take the two blue version released in 2018 or 2019 over this one.

    Who knows? - maybe in 20 years the Olympics-that-didn't-happen-Omega will be highly sought after...

    The Covid angle and the delayed games will have no, or very minimal, effect on prices long term.

    You could say that its a negative watch because of delayed Olympics, still calling it 2020, COVID but then you could spin it around and say it marks very important period in history of Olympics or even the world

    Who are you spinning and saying this to?

    While you never know which watch will be a sleeper, and had I known I would have bought the original Bond Seamaster quartz and left it in the closet for 25 years, I don't think this watch is going to be a collector's item.

    But if you really like it, you could certainly do worse.

    I would never buy a watch that would constantly remind me of covid and this miserable time in the world But that’s just me

    I don't much care of it's 2020 Olympic heritage. Being a fan of the white wave dial, when I saw it with the blue bezel and those reflective blue hands and hour markers this really was special for me. I will own one soon.

    I have the rising sun and, IMHO, most important is that its a beautiful watch. What I see is that white dial speedmaster (even if Rising sun is slightly grey) is hot today and burgundy bezel reminds some of the most expensive (and rare) speedies around there. So, I think rising sun's time will come but nobody knows when. It's just my opinion.

    Agreed. I believe the Tokyo Speedmasters will do better in the long run than the more widely available Tokyo Seamaster - although I do like the blue/white combo.

    Design first, limited availability and branding last.

    Aqua terra blue is attractive. The Seamaster 2020 okay, not for me though.

    Many people don't remember who landed on the moon, much less Schumacher. Olympics 2020 will likely not be enduring. Even covid will fade. Remember polio? Me either, but it was a big deal to my mother and her generation.

    Who cares, buy the watch you like not the one you think will hold the investment after 20 years
    There can be no tomorrow so enjoy the one you like.
