To celebrate its role as Official Timekeeper, OMEGA has launched a race-ready timepiece that delivers extraordinary precision under pressure. We’re delighted to introduce you to the OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M America’s Cup Chronograph. 

With its new chronograph lock-system, quick-change strap and water grip pushers, the OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M America’s Cup Chronograph is a fitting tribute to the 36th America’s Cup presented by PRADA.

Rich with history, innovation and prestige, the America’s Cup is one of the world’s oldest and most dramatic sporting events, and has been fiercely contested since 1851. Adding its own precision and excellence, OMEGA’s association extends back to 1995, when the brand supported Team New Zealand, led by the legendary sailor Sir Peter Blake. The kiwi’s victory that year paved the way for OMEGA to take the coveted role of Official Timekeeper in 2000 and again in 2003. Now, history is set to repeat. OMEGA is returning to the role in 2021 at the 36th edition of the great event.

Built from stainless steel, the 44 mm chronograph 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. A must when marking time on the water, as sailing at high speeds, leaves no room for error.

As with all great commemorative watches, the event and year is clearly marked and highlighted in bold. On the Alveol shaped caseback, engravings filled with blue lacquer spell out “36th America’s Cup” and “Auckland 2021”.

OMEGA’s Seamaster Diver 300M America’s Cup Chronograph has a metal bracelet and additional rubber strap, both equipped with OMEGA’s 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.

Unlike the boats, the America’s Cup chronograph requires no winds to push it forward. OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 9900 is more than up to the task.

A special presentation box in the colours of the America’s Cup keeps it safe and secure on land – and adds to its collectable appeal.
