Omega Seamaster Diver ETNZ Limited Edition Watch - Inspired by Seafarers

Jul 18, 2013
As a longstanding supporter of Emirates Team New Zealand, Omega has now created the Seamaster Diver ETNZ Limited Edition watch. The novelty commemorates ETNZ’s campaign to claim sailing’s most prestigious trophy, the America’s Cup, to take place in San Francisco in 2013.

The matt black dial of the new Omega watch is framed by a red seconds track. The time is indicated by the skeletonized hour and minute hands in the center. The small seconds sub-dial is found at 9 o’clock. The 30-minute chronograph recorder positioned at 3 o’clock features a red hand and is surrounded by a distinctive red ring bearing a scale for indicating the 5-minute countdown to the start of a regatta.

The 12-hour chronograph sub-dial, also with a red hand, is found at 6 o’clock, along with the date window. The slim red chronograph seconds hand is positioned in the center.

The robust case of the Seamaster Diver ETNZ Limited Edition watch measures 44 mm. It demonstrates polished and brushed stainless steel surfaces. The face of the watch is framed by a matt black ceramic bezel ring. The case-construction is 300-meter water-resistant.

The screw-in case-back reveals an embossment of the “ETNZ” logo, as well as engravings of the limited edition number and “CHALLENGER FOR THE 34TH AMERICA’S CUP”.

The heart of the limited edition watch is the Co-Axial calibre 3330, incorporating a Si14 silicon balance spring. Considering the mechanism’s supreme reliability, the model is provided with a full 4-year warranty.

The new Omega Seamaster watch is presented on a black rubber strap. One more advantage is that the model is delivered with a stainless steel extendable divers’ bracelet.

It is interesting to mention that Omega’s partnership with Emirates Team New Zealand was born in 1995 when the company supported Sir Peter Blake’s American’s Cup campaign and the team won the Cup. The team celebrated another victory in 2000. The same year Sir Peter retired from professional sailing, but the watchmaking company offered him its support, acting as one of the leading sponsors of his Blakexpeditions project. Sir Peter died in 2001.Omega has continuously supported ETNZ and skipper Dean Barker, one of the world’s best sailors, who has joined the brand’s family of ambassadors.
