Celebrating its role as the Official Timekeeper to the 36th America’s Cup presented by PRADA, Swiss watch brand OMEGA has created a special edition Seamaster Diver 300M chronograph watch.
The OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M America’s Cup Chronograph boasts a new chronograph lock-system, quick-change strap and water grip pushers.
The 44 mm diameter stainless steel case has a blue ceramic dial and bezel ring, which features a white enamel diving scale. To get a better handle on the watch in high swells, OMEGA has included soft-touch rubber pushers, ergonomically designed to work efficiently in the wet and stylishly picked out in red and blue.
Its laser-engraved wave-pattern dial includes a ‘regatta countdown indicator ring’ in red anodized aluminium, which features an hour disc underneath the subdial, and a red anodized aluminium minute and rhodium-plated small seconds hand inspired by the shape of a boat hull.
The central seconds chronograph hand, also in red anodized aluminium, carries an America’s Cup on the counterweight. OMEGA’s exclusive CHRONO LOCK system is included to secure the chronograph functions when needed. On the Alveol shaped caseback, engravings filled with blue lacquer spell out “36th America’s Cup” and “Auckland 2021”.
The America’s Cup chronograph houses the OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 9900, the state-of-the-art self-winding movement featuring column wheel and Co-Axial escapement.
OMEGA’s Seamaster Diver 300M America’s Cup Chronograph has a metal bracelet and additional rubber strap, both equipped with the new Quick Change system. One press of a button releases the pins from the watch-head, enabling the wearer to switch easily between the bracelet and the strap without having to use tools.
The watch comes with a special presentation box in the colours of the America’s Cup.
