OMEGA Emirates Team New Zealand Limited Editions

Marina Milojević | 06.05.17 | 06:00 PM

The famous Swiss watchmaker OMEGA is proudly supporting Emirates Team New Zealand during its upcoming campaign to win the 35th America’s Cup, which is taking place this month, June 2017. OMEGA has been a major sponsor and Official Timekeeper of the team for no less than 27 years. As part of its continuous support for the Kiwi crew, the watchmaker has unveiled two new pieces, the Speedmaster X-33, and the Seamaster Planet Ocean ETNZ "Deep Black" Master Chronometer.

OMEGA Speedmaster x-33 ETNZ

OMEGA Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ, is the model the Kiwi crew members will wear on board when racing. The Omega Speedmaster X-33 model is originally meant for professional aviation purposes, but since it is made to hold firm and stay precise under even the most challenging conditions, it is also a fitting tribute to the Emirates Team New Zealand.

The new timepiece is made from highly resistant yet lightweight grade 2 titanium, featuring a 45mm wide case and 30m of water resistance. The water resistant rating of this watch is quite confusing, since 30 meters of water resistance makes it only splash and rain resistant, and not suitable for swimming, bathing, or even showering and water related work. To be suitable for sailing and water sports, a watch needs to be water resistant to at least 100 meters, and this one is designed to be used during the yacht racing competition. Obviously, water resistance is a huge concern for the Omega Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean ETNZ "Deep Black" Master Chronometer

The watch is powered by the quartz 5620 movement, which powers the analog three-hand time function and a special countdown timer for regatta racing,  which keeps track of the critical five minute countdown and race time. The digital functions can be programmed to show three time zones, chronograph, timer, perpetual calendar information, and two alarms. The watch is fitted with a black dial with blue rings and white transferred markings, as well as cut outs for digital readings. A bezel ring is designed in a ceramic / titanium mix, with a black ceramic minute track filled with Liquidmetal.

The Omega Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ, reference number 318.92.45.79.01.001, is limited to 2,017 pieces. The back of the watch features a commemorative engraving with EMIRATES TEAM NEW ZEALAND logo and "CHALLENGER FOR THE 35TH AMERICA’S CUP", "X-33 REGATTA", and the limited edition number. The watch is mounted on a black coated nylon fabric strap with blue rubber lining and blue stitching. The Omega Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ Limited Edition is priced at $5,900.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean ETNZ "Deep Black" Master Chronometer

The second watch, the Seamaster Planet Ocean ETNZ "Deep Black" Master Chronometer, is designed for fans of the racing team. It features a lack ceramic case adorned with blue and red accents for the first 10 minutes, evocative of the New Zealand flag. An EMIRATES TEAM NEW ZEALAND logo in red rubber can be seen on the caseback, which is ringed with the words CHALLENGER 35TH AMERICA'S CUP.

OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean ETNZ "Deep Black" Master Chronometer

The model is presented on a black structured rubber strap with black and blue rubber lining and red stitching, and powered by the self-winding OMEGA Master Chronometer Calibre 8906. The watch is water resistant to 600 meters, and it provides around 60 hours of power reserve. Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean ETNZ "Deep Black" Master Chronometer, reference 215.92.46.22.01.004, is priced at 11.400 CHF.

At BaselWorld 2016, Omega presented 6 new movements and no less than 46 models carrying the Master Chronometer rating.

In 2015, the house of Omega released the Omega Globemaster, a watch that carries the prestigious title of being the world’s first master chronometer. At that time, Omega promised to continue the Master Chronometer saga, and introduce a number of new models certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). The new era of excellence continues this year, as Omega slowly fulfills its plan to certify the majority of its mechanical watches as Master Chronometers by 2020. Among the latest additions is the entire range of n...

In 2015, on the occasion of the BaselWorld trade show, Omega introduced the Globemaster, which was announced as the world's first Master Chronometer. The legendary Globemaster, which is both COSC and METAS certified, now returns with an update, and with a new case diameter. The Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar is increased from 39mm to 41mm, allowing for even better visibility of the vintage-inspired Pie Pan dial. The watch face is also revealed in a completely new shade of grey, evoking the early Constellation models.

However, the changes are not merely cosmetic. The most important update is on the inside, since the brand new movement drives the Globemaster Annual Calendar. The new OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8922 movement features an instantaneous jump mechanism, which controls the movement of the blue-varnished month hand. The hand travels along the month track, where each month has been positioned between blued indexes. Omega omitted the day of the week indicator, and, instead, it opted for a more restrained design, with a date window appear...

Pre-Baselworld 2016: Omega Speedmaster Moonphase Chronograph Master Chronometer

A couple of weeks ahead of the BaselWorld 2016 trade show, Omega gives us a look at its new Speedmaster Moonphase Chronograph. The watch, which was first announced in January this year, is a 44mm stainless steel piece with a deep blue dial and a moon-phase complication at 6 o’clock. A moonphase complication in a sports watch is quite unusual, and pretty much senseless, but not in this case, since Omega Speedmaster is no stranger to the lunar surface. The manual winding Speedmaster Professional or "Moonwatch" was worn during the first Amer...
