Swiss watch brand OMEGA celebrates its partnership with the renowned sailing team Emirates Team New Zealand by unveiling Seamaster Diver 300M ETNZ.
The OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M ETNZ has a black ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel with a polished diving scale whose indications have been created in relief using laser ablation. There is a dot at the top of the bezel at 12 o’clock which is coated with white Super-LumiNova and emits a green light.
The sand-blasted grade 5 titanium dial has applied indexes coated with white Super-LumiNova that emits a blue light. A silvery chronograph seconds track can be found on the outer edge of the dial; inside this ring is a matt titanium minute track. There are three sub-dials on the dial: a small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock, a 12-hour recorder at 6 o’clock and a 30-minute recorder at 3 o’clock which also indicates the five-minute countdown to the start of a regatta. The 44 mm brushed grade 5 titanium case has pushers at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock that stand out with a red aluminium ring and matt black ceramic ring respectively. In fact, all of the elements that correspond to a chronograph function are coloured in red. There is also a helium escape valve with an integrated date corrector at 10 o’clock on the case.
The Seamaster Diver 300M ETNZ is presented on a rubber strap with a foldover clasp. The top part of the strap is black and has a subtle ribbed pattern, while the underside of the strap is red and has a design that is reminiscent of the sails on the team’s boat. This pattern ensures that water and air can pass freely underneath allowing the skin to breath.
Embossed on the screw-in caseback is the ETNZ logo – a special detail that establishes this timepiece’s connection to the world of sailing and underscores OMEGA’s support of the remarkable team. Protected by the caseback is the Co-Axial calibre 3330, a chronograph movement complete with an Si14 silicon balance spring.
