To celebrate its role as Official Timekeeper for America’s Cup, OMEGA has launched a race-ready timepiece that delivers extraordinary precision under pressure.

The current edition of America’s Cup yacht race will occur in Waitemata Harbour of Auckland between Emirates Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli of Italy.

The “Defending Club” is the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, responsible for organizing America’s Cup match itself, whose team won the 35th America’s Cup in 2017. The “Challenging Club” is Circolo Della Vela Sicilia, whose team won the selection series - the 2021 Prada Cup.

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.

The 44 mm timepiece 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 aluminum. It features an hour disc underneath the subdial and a red anodized aluminum minute and rhodium-plated small seconds hand inspired by a boat hull’s shape.

OMEGA’s exclusive CHRONO LOCK system secures the chronograph functions when needed. A must when marking time on the water since sailing at high speeds leaves no room for error.

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