Omega is Official Timekeeper
of the 36th America's Cup

Founded in 1851, the America's Cup is known to be the oldest international sports trophy in the world, and has been the source of heated rivalries and spectacular sailing duels. With the arrival of its 36tha edition, Omega is pleased to announce its role as Official Timekeeper. This will be the third time in history that Omega will hold this important position since the company began its partnership with Emirates Team New Zealand in 1995. Returning to New Zealand in 2021, perfection in timekeeping and long experience in the sailing world will certainly be in the spotlight in this edition of the America's Cup, through new technologies and never-before-seen equipment that will improve every second of racing. Speaking about the announcement, Omega President and CEO Raynald Aeschlimann said: "The America's Cup holds a very special place for Omega. From ingenuity, to precision, to competitive energy and history, every part of it appeals to our spirit. We are truly excited about our role in the upcoming event in March and the chance to be back on board with Emirates Team New Zealand." The announcement was accompanied by the launch of the new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 36a America's Cup, produced in a limited edition of 2,021 pieces. With a textured rubber strap, the watch has a 43.5 mm steel case with a blue ceramic bezel, which incorporates the red and white liquid ceramic used for the 5-minute countdown before the start of the races. The polished white ceramic dial bears the name of the competition at 6 o'clock. A special America's Cup logo has been placed on the counterweight of the central seconds hand, as well as on the sapphire crystal caseback, which allows the Omega Master Chronometer calibre 8900 to be admired.
