With the announcement that Omega will be the official timekeeper of the 36th America’s Cup comes the release of the brand new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 36th America’s Cup Limited Edition.
The watch is presented on an eye-catching integrated rubber strap with red lining and contrast white stitching. The 43.50mm Planet Ocean is offered in stainless steel and ‘limited’ to just 2,021 pieces. The blue ceramic diving bezel is in-filled with white and red liquid ceramic to create a 5-minute countdown for racing. The sympathetic white date wheel should please purists and the red numerals at 6, 9 and 12 contrast sharply, reinforcing a summer-fresh palette of red, white and blue.
The dial is in white polished ceramic, and incorporates the competition’s name above 6 o’clock. The America’s Cup logo has also been placed on the counterweight of the central seconds hand. Those fearing a solid engraved caseback – so common on commemorative editions like this – can relax. The America’s Cup logo is applied to the caseback’s sapphire crystal, but you can also see the Omega Master Chronometer Calibre 8900 through the crystal.
The 36th America’s Cup is set to take place in March 2021. Competitors will sail in AC75, 75-foot foiling monohulls, with the course stretching across Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour in New Zealand. More information about the watch to follow.
