Omega is marking its role as Official Timekeeper for the America’s Cup with a seaworthy Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph.
The race begins on March 6, and will see Team Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli challenging the holder Emirates Team New Zealand, which is also supported by Omega.
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.
Every sailor will appreciate being able to quickly swap between a steel bracelet and a blue rubber strap, while soft-touch rubber pushers in red and blue are easier to use in the wet than regular steel ones.
It also has Omega’s unique Chrono Lock system that secures the chronograph functions.
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 now for $10,700.
