Omega is celebrating the successful conclusion of this year’s America’s Cup in New Zealand, arguably the most prestigious sporting event to have taken place since the start of the covid-19 pandemic.
A worldwide audience of millions watched Emirates Team New Zealand sail to victory in the 36th America’s Cup on home waters against Challenger of Record Luna Rossa by seven races to three.
Omega has been the timekeeping partner of Emirates Team New Zealand since 1995 and the Official Timekeeper for this year’s America’s Cup.
The watchmaker unveiled a special Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph ahead of the race.
The 44mm steel watch has a laser-engraved wave-patterned blue ceramic dial and bezel ring with a white enamel diving scale.
Among the nods to the world’s greatest sailing race are a 15-minute regatta countdown in red at 3 o’clock and a small seconds sub dial at 9 o’clock that has a hand shaped to look like the hull of a boat.
A red central seconds chronograph hand has an America’s Cup as its counterweight.
Omega’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 9900 can be seen through a crystal case back that is locked in place with a steel ring bearing this year’s race details: Auckland 2021, the 36th America’s Cup.
The Seamaster Diver 300M America’s Cup Chronograph is on sale for $10,700.
