Unfortunately we can´t be there! So let´s together discover the new chronograph devoted to the Emirates Team New Zealand.
Emirates Team New Zealand is one of the world’s most distinguished sailing crews. Twice winner of the America’s Cup, it has concentrated considerable energy on shifting to the dramatic and high-speed new world of multihulls. Led by managing director Grant Dalton and skipper Dean Barker, Emirates Team New Zealand will be carrying the hopes of their small island nation into battle in the America’s Cup in San Francisco.
The team launched itself into multihull sailing in 2011 and finished the 2011-12 America’s Cup World Series championship in second place, a testimony to the work the team has put in to manage the transition from racing monohulls to multihulls.
In 2010, its last year racing monohulls, ETNZ won the three Louis Vuitton Trophy regattas (Auckland in February, La Maddalena in May and Dubai in November).
The Omega Seamaster Diver ETNZ Limited Edition has a matt black dial encircled by a red seconds track and the central hour and minute hands are skeletonized. The small seconds sub-dial is at nine o’clock.
The chronograph function features a 30-minute chronograph recorder at 3 o’clock has red hand and a distinctive red ring marked with a scale that indicates the five-minute countdown to the start of a regatta. The 12-hour chronograph recorder featuring a red hand is at 6 o’clock, just above the date window. The timepiece has a central chronograph seconds hand.
The watch is powered by the Co-Axial caliber 3330 and equipped with an Si14 silicon balance spring. The self-winding Co-Axial caliber 3330, with its column-wheel chronograph mechanism, is a COSC certified chronometer.
