Blimey I know we all have different opinions on watches but to me they look horrible! They look more like some micro brand watch for a few hundred quid. I am sure on live photos they will look better but not impressed on initial photos.

I’ll wait for better photos or real life viewing before deciding if I like them or not. They have the potential to be very nice or rather poorly done but I for one shall wait to see.

I like that they've tried something different, but they do look a little cheap...

I really like them. They remind me of Farer watches, which I like.

I think I'd go for the one with the blue.

Interesting. No doubt far too expensive for the average collector. \to me it has a little bit of Dynamic in the design:

Take away the Olympic Rings and I’d consider it
Current collection = Omega Seamaster 2225.80.00, Omega Speedmaster 'Moonphase' 3576.50.00, Seiko SRPB43J1, C60 Trident, Casio G Shock 2327, Garmin Vivoactive

Seeing all five together in one shot, with their colour matched straps, does unfortunately convey "cheap micro brand".

However I very much doubt that will be the case once seen in person. Don't like the Olympic Rings though and the hands could be better.

I have yet to see an Olympic edition that I would buy, and this release will not change that. However, I do agree that the picture of all 5 together probably makes them look worse than they are.

They look like Sinn Lego hands Neil, albeit slightly thinner perhaps.

I would prefer to wait for better pictures before making a decision on these . I think the only Omega watch to commemorate the Olympics I have liked is this one , the 1956 summer Olympics Melbourne watch.

Or Blancpain bathyscaphe perhaps?
