Sailors at all levels of competition, from novices to race-hardened veterans, have drawn to the water assured that OMEGA is there to sustain them. The company audaciously supports the whole crew such as Olympic Games champions such as Blair Tuke and Peter Burling, historic events such as America’s Cup, and of course, Emirates Team New Zealand and Alinghi.
OMEGA served as the Official Timekeeper for the 36th edition of the “Auld Mug” for the third time. OMEGA, which previously hosted America’s Cup in 2000 and 2003, has come back to the role this 2021. To represent the world’s finest sailors on the waters of Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour and the Hauraki Gulf with pride and accuracy, even in the roughest seas. Here are the timepieces that the brand obtained for them.
Diver 300m America’s Cup Chronograph
OMEGA has created a new wristwatch in honor of the 36th America’s Cup provided by Prada as the Official Timekeeper. The Omega Seamaster Diver 300m America’s Cup Chronograph includes a legendary Seamaster layout that has been augmented with many cutting-edge features and substances that are genuinely deserving of the boats that battle across the water. In terms of sailing excellence, this chronograph unquestionably leads the pack.
OMEGA created this 44 mm stainless steel chronograph with a white enamel diving scale and a blue ceramic bezel ring. The iconic Diver waves are laser-engraved on the blue ceramic dial, and the red aluminum central seconds chronograph hand attributes an America’s Cup on the counterweight as a little something. In honor of America’s Cup, the Alveol-shaped case back features etchings filled with blue lacquer.
This watch does not necessitate wind to function! Caliber 9900, the Co-Axial Master Chronometer, is in command. This self-winding chronograph movement is resilient to magnetic fields up to 15,000 gausses and includes a silicon balance spring, time zone function, central hour, minute, and chronograph seconds hands, small seconds hand, 12-hour and 60-minute recorders, and a silicon balance spring. The caliber is finished with arabesque Geneva waves and is rhodium plated.
Chrono Lock & Quick Change Lock
The latest Chrono Lock system is intended to safeguard chronograph functions, allowing you to lock your quantified time without accidentally tapping the pushers. You can lock and unlock the pushers by swiftly shifting the button between positions A and B. A free quick-to-change strap feature enables wearers to simply transfer between the watch’s rubber strap and metal bracelet without the use of tools. A straightforward button at the bottom quickly releases the pins.
Water Grip Pushers
OMEGA enhanced the watch’s grip all through water activities by constructing the pushers in blue and red soft-touch rubber, creating them much more convenient and cozy to use. Every little specific count when it comes to being as accurate as possible when using the chronograph features.
OMEGA has included a red aluminum regatta countdown marker ring as a valuable racing component. Rather than an hour hand, a rotating disc beneath the subdial makes for improved legibility of the minute and small seconds hands, which are influenced by the form of a boat hull.
Planet Ocean 600m
The Seamaster Planet Ocean America’s Cup Edition, a commemoration of the 36th America’s Cup presented by Prada, which will be disputed by Emirates Team New Zealand in 2021, attaches importance to OMEGA’s contribution as Official Timekeeper and benefits greatly from the tournament’s emblem: a perception of the Auld Mug in red, blue, and white.
The OMEGA Planet Ocean 43.5 mm wristwatch has a domed scratch‑resistant sapphire crystal with anti‑reflective treatment on both sides and a white polished ceramic dial with the 36th AMERICA’S CUP transported at 6 o’clock. Water-resistant up to 60 bar, it’s tough enough for living on deck – and a genuine collectible, with only 2,021 pieces made. OMEGA’s connection to the cup is incredibly emotional and a great source of pride for the company, which has been an admirer of the Kiwi crew as of 1995.
This sailing timepiece does not demand wind to function. The powerful OMEGA Master Chronometer Calibre 8900 is in charge. The support of self-winding movement with a Co-Axial escapement, a time zone, automatic winding in both directions, and a silicon balance spring is also featured. It also has a distinctive high-end finish with rhodium-plated bridges and a rotor with arabesque Geneva waves.
In a Nutshell
The crew may take the spotlight, but having won America’s Cup necessitates a full team of artists, technicians, and boat developers all working toward a mutual objective. Behind the camera shots, Emirates Team New Zealand is rising to the occasion with a unique combination of experience, creativity, and intuition. You may never win America’s Cup, but this incredible timepiece is a league title in its own right. With so many cutting-edge technologies, it is surely a one-of-a-kind chronograph for any watch enthusiast or sailing enthusiast. The wristwatch will be delivered to owners in a special presentation box decorated in America’s Cup colors.
