With the new Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black ETNZ Edition, OMEGA celebrates its partnership with Emirates Team New Zealand, the defending champions of the America’s Cup.
Launched during OMEGA’s special event at the preliminary Regatta in Vilanova, the 45.5 mm Seamaster Planet Ocean blends the deepest black with the turquoise of the Emirates Team New Zealand logo.
Complementing the black ceramic case is a unidirectional bezel in brushed black ceramic with white enamel diving scale and triangle-framed dot at 12, which includes white Super-LumiNova to emit a green glow in the dark.
On the matt ceramic dial, OMEGA has included a nod to pre-race protocol with a COUNTDOWN INDICATOR at 3 o’clock complete with flagged START.
The indicator’s hand and subdial ring are in Emirates Team New Zealand logo turquoise, along with the minute track, number 12, and central seconds chronograph hand with America’s Cup trophy counterweight. OMEGA has also included the colour on the rings of the brushed black ceramic pushers, the “He” on the helium escape valve and the OMEGA logo on the crown.
As a salute to the kiwi crew, the NAIAD LOCK caseback has an Emirates Team New Zealand logo with turquoise fern and white lettering. Providing the power inside the watch is OMEGA’s Master Chronometer Calibre 9900.
The watch comes with a black and turquoise structured rubber strap with turquoise stitching and black ceramic clasp. Along with this timepiece, OMEGA is also offering an additional rubber strap and two NATO straps, all in complementary colours.
Each Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black ETNZ Edition will be delivered in a special presentation box inspired by the Emirates Team New Zealand logo.
Having already timed the America’s Cup in 2000, 2003 and 2021, OMEGA is the Official Timekeeper of the 37th edition of the world-famous regatta. Moreover, the iconic Swiss watch brand has been supporting Emirates Team New Zealand since 1995.
