OMEGA has developed its new Seamaster NZL-32 chronograph to honor Emirates Team New Zealand as the team’s official watch. The new Omega timepiece inherited the name of the boat that won the prestigious America’s Cup in 1995. OMEGA invited its Ambassador Dean Barker, skipper of Team New Zealand, to collaborate in the development of the watch.
The creators of the OMEGA Seamaster NZL-32 wanted it to unite utmost elegance and functionality. The timepiece is driven by OMEGA caliber 3602 self-winding movement. It is a chronometer-certified mechanism that provides a 40-hour power reserve. Elaborated for the regatta, the timepiece represents a high-precision instrument that gives its owner an opportunity to measure performance to one-eighth of a second.
The OMEGA Seamaster NZL-32 is designed to satisfy the major needs of Dean Barker and his crew during a regatta. The timepiece is provided with ‘start of the regatta’ function that indicates the ten minutes before the starting signal. A special indicator composed of five dots displays the function. The dots gradually get filled with a different color: first they become blue, then red – thus marking the elapse of every successive five-minute period.
The dial in silver-black color combination features applied faceted hour markers and luminous dots above them. At 3 o’clock there is a black counter with a silvery edge around it. It offers a clear indication of the elapsed minutes, with blue and red markings indicating the two five-minute periods up to the start.
The smaller hour counter is found at 12 o’clock, while a small seconds counter is placed at 9 o’clock. The skeleton Super-LumiNova-coated hour and minute hands and the red hands and of the chronograph counters provide the timepiece with supreme readability.
The ideally polished and brushed stainless steel case of the OMEGA Seamaster NZL-32 reveals the distinctive shape and horns of the Seamaster line. The push buttons are found on the side of the case at 8 and 10 o’clock. They add to the Seamaster’s well-balanced, harmonious look.
A seahorse, the legendary symbol of the Seamaster collection, is featured on the case back. The Omega watchmakers equipped the case with a screw-in back and crown, having provided it with 150-meter water resistance. The chronograph watch goes on either a black white-stitched rubber strap with a fold-over clasp or brushed stainless steel bracelet.
Watch fans will definitely enjoy the new Omega Seamaster NZL-32 with its aesthetically appealing design and readability.
How would I be able to purchase this watch for my husband? We were at this fabulous event as a guest of Mr. and Mrs. Gary Paykel and recently were honored to spend some time with Grant Dalton in New Zealand.
