Omega celebrates 36th America’s Cup with a special Seamaster 300M Chronograph.
The new model comes in a stainless steel case measuring 44mm in diameter. The case, in which matte and shiny surfaces are used together, is accompanied by a blue ceramic insert bezel, rubber-coated chronograph pushers, the brand's patented Chrono-Lock locking system, screw-down crown, and helium escape valve. The case with sapphire crystals on the front and back can withstand 300 meters of water pressure.
The model is accompanied by a dial made of blue ceramic. The dial, which follows the signature design elements of the Seamaster model family with laser engraved wave patterns, features red anodized components. Seamaster Diver 300-style hands and indices are used on the dial to monitor the countdown and chronograph functions for yacht racing. The dial, which has a Bi-Compax style layout, has a date window at 6 o'clock.
The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M America's Cup Chronograph is powered by the Caliber 9900 movement, which was developed and produced in-house. 54-jewel automatic movement operates at a frequency of 4Hz (28.800vph) and provides up to 60 hours of power reserve thanks to its twin-barrel system. Master Chronometer certified movement can be enjoyed through the glass case back.
The new model comes with a Seamaster Diver 300 style multi-piece stainless steel bracelet, which is compatible with the brand's new Quick Change system. In addition to the bracelet that comes with an Omega signed folding clasp, there is also a blue rubber strap in the box set. The list price for the model is EUR 10,100.
