    Tokyo 2020 Omegas What now??

    https://monochrome-watches.com/omega...an-only-price/

    So with all the Omega Tokyo 2020s being released for an event that won't take place until 2021, does this make them worthless or priceless?

    Very rare and an opportunity for Omega to bang some more out next year 😂

    That is a great question!

    Also guessing the latter. Pretty sure I've also seen a couple of forum members flouting theirs a couple of months ago.

    Seems like Omega still has stock of the aqua terra and SMP:

    I'd snap one of the white faced Speedmasters up, they are rather lovely (wishful thinking I know)

    Sent through the ether by diddling with radio waves

    Lol unfortunately not. "Sharing" is the better word in hindsight

    I heard Steve Redgrave on Radio 4 yesterday stating that it will still be called Tokyo 2020 due to marketing/licensing agreements even though it will happen in 2021.

    I guess this is one good example of why.

    I'd happily have the red or green bezel speedmasters but imagine the Olympics being postponed till next year will make them hold their value well.

    I'm surprised that Omega don't already have a C-19 tie-in limited Edition watch by now?

    Not sure why a global pandemic driven crisis where thousands die, resulting in a delay in the olympics, now make these more collectible....Another soulless heavily diluted speedie limited edition. The green, blue and red are perhaps marginally more attractive/interesting aside from the olympics association.

    Omega would rather crush them and send to a scrap yard before slashing the price for us.

    Makes sense if the 4 year event cycle is going to continue as planned, Paris 2024 etc.

    Presumably same for European and World Cup football.

    As an owner of two, the panda and red sun version, I really donít care!

    The games will still be called Tokyo 2020, the watches are still lovely, still a low number limited edition and still sold out so why would they suddenly become even more valuable or harder to get because of a quirk of nature and a delayed games. I donít see prices getting higher on chrono24

    In any case, I doubt many people bought these for the association to the games and more for the colours and designs. I know that is why I got mine!

    Just my two cent!

    I think I have to agree with you, the watch as ALWAYS been about the look for me and not about the value, these two you have a both beautiful, however I thought these specific ones were only available in Japan??

    Very lucky indeed and a beautiful pair of watches. Wear them in good health.

    Lovely watches :)

    I dont think the value will differ right now but maybe at some point in the future, all due to a virus :D
