Though this new timepiece looks like the standard Speedmaster Mark II, it actually features some modifications regarding the upcoming event. For the loyal followers of the brand and its iconic Speedmaster product line, it’s quite easy to notice the rings of the sub-dials that were finished in bronze, silver, and gold. These are the same metals that are featured on the Olympic medals.

The other ( and possibly more obvious ) difference is the special caseback featuring the logo of this year’s Olympic Games, instead of the classic Speedmaster emblem. The watch number will also be engraved on this caseback as well.
