Celebrating OMEGA’s role as the Official Timekeeper of the Volvo Ocean Race, this 45.50 mm chronograph features a black ceramic case and a black ceramic bezel with red rubber for the first 15 minutes. Liquidmetal™ completes the rest of the diving scale while red rubber is also used on the pushers, the OMEGA logo on the crown, and for the “He” symbol on the helium escape valve.
The brushed black ceramic dial includes 18K white gold hour-minute hands and indexes. On the subdial at 3 o’clock, OMEGA has included a red Volvo Ocean Race ring that features a Limited Edition number as well as coloured hands and number 12.
As well as having a Volvo Ocean Race logo on the caseback, the watch includes a Master Chronometer Calibre 9900 and is presented on a black rubber strap with red stitching. Because the famous sailing event first began in 1973, only 73 versions of this watch have been created.
