OMEGA – SEAMASTER PLANET OCEAN ETNZ “DEEP BLACK”
ON THE CREST OF THE WAVE
Omega is flying the flag for the winners of the latest America’s Cup with a Seamaster Planet Ocean devoted to Team New Zealand.
Team New Zealand beat Oracle Team USA and won the 35th America’s Cup with the official timekeeper, Omega, on board. The brand has unveiled the Seamaster Planet Ocean ETNZ “Deep Black” in the crew’s colours to celebrate the exceptional competition. The black ceramic 45.5mm dial features a ceramic bezel with two functions. It helps the boat get off to a good start in regattas with a diving scale displaying the 15 minutes prior to the race. The first 10 are coated in blue and red rubber to match the New Zealand flag and the next 5 say “START” in LiquidMetal, a high-tech material designed by Omega. The bezel also helps divers in all their underwater excursions with a case that’s water-resistant to depths of 600m.
The timepiece is fuelled by a self-winding bi-directional Master Chronometer 8906 calibre (60 hour power reserve) that displays a second time zone. Its black vertical satin-finish dial makes timekeeping a breeze. The white gold markers are tracked by wide hour and minute hands. A slimmer blue hand points out the time of your choice on a GMT ring with a 24 hr day/night display on the rim of the dial.
The Seamaster Planet Ocean ETNZ “Deep Black” comes with a structured black NATO strap lined with black and blue rubber. The Emirates Team New Zealand logo appears in red on the black case back.
