Worn on the wrist of every Kiwi crew member, the Speedmaster X-33 Regatta is cased in grade 2 titanium to take the knocks on deck. True to its name, it includes an ingenious Regatta function to keep track of the race from pre-start to finish.
"…The stars at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock reflect the Southern Cross on the New Zealand flag …"
One red button - Multiple uses: The Speedmaster X-33's Regatta function keeps track of the critical five minute count-down to the start of the race by triggering a series of alarms, each with their own recognisable ringing sequence.
With both analogue and digital readings, the X-33 can track a sailor's every move. It features a skeletonised black-and-white hour hand, a red minute hand and liquid crystal displays. Numbers in LiquidMetal™ ring the ceramic minute track.
OMEGA is proud of its partnership with Emirates Team New Zealand that started with Sir Peter Blake's America's Cup campaign in 1995 and continues to this day. OMEGA is supporting the Kiwi challenge for the 35th America’s Cup in 2017.
"…OMEGA's partnership with ETNZ began in 1995 alongside legendary skipper Sir Peter Blake…"
The Speedmaster X-33 Regatta is one of two watches made in support of the Kiwi crew, which differ completely in style but share the same race-ready spirit. To give the boat an extra boost, OMEGA also created the Seamaster Planet Ocean ETNZ "Deep Black".
OMEGA has served as timekeeper at many of the world's top competitive sailing events. A partnership with the late Sir Peter Blake started in 1995 and we continue to honour his legacy with our support for Emirates Team New Zealand.
