The latest Seamaster from Omega marks the approaching America’s Cup in Barcelona in 2024 with a logo-inspired tribute to the defending champion Emirates Team New Zealand. The Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black ETNZ Edition was launched at a Omega special event at the preliminary Regatta in Vilanova a few weeks back.
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. Providing the power inside the watch is Omega’s Master Chronometer Calibre 9900.
The new watch is on a black and turquoise structured rubber strap with turquoise stitching and black ceramic clasp and offers three ways to switch out the look: an additional rubber strap and two NATO straps, all in complementary colours. Suggested retail Canadian pricing for the watch is $18,100, and is available at OMEGA Canadian Authorized Retailers and the OMEGA Vancouver Boutique.
