This year marks the first time Swiss luxury watchmaker Omega has taken on the role of official timekeeper at 36th America’s Cup, and the company has now created a celebratory edition of its Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m in tribute to the iconic sailing event.

With a 43.5mm case crafted from stainless steel, this special edition of the Seamaster takes on the vibrant and patriotic colors of America’s Cup, dressed in red, white, and blue all across the board. A white ceramic dial pairs with a deep blue diving bezel insert of the same material, itself adorned with white markings and a 10-minute track in both white and red. The theme extends onto the dial itself, with its indices outlined in blue alongside colored hands and red numerals at 12, 6, and 9 o’clock, as the 3 o’clock position makes way for a date window. The American shades also continue onto the strap itself, made from a blue rubber with white stitching and red edge lining. As for the movement itself, the watch is powered by Omega’s in-house Master Chronometer Calibre 8900, a co-axial carrying a power reserve of 60 hours and resistant to magnetic fields of up to 15,000 gauss.

Limited to just 2,021 units, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m America’s Cup special edition is now available for pre-orders, retailing for $7,050 USD. Head over to Omega to learn more.

Elsewhere in watches, Hamilton has released a limited edition BeLOWZERO for Christopher Nolan’s TENET.
