Hurrah for the Emirates Team New Zealand! Together with Omega, the sponsor and Official Timekeeper, they won the America´s Cup 2017 in Bermuda

Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) simply delivered a stunning performance every day throughout every stage of the competition on water. By first taking a 5-2 win in the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger Finals, the ETNZ advanced to the America’s Cup Match against Oracle Team USA. It was then when ETNZ proved to be extremely powerful and the Kiwis sailed confidently to a well deserved victory. The “Auld Mug” is now back in New Zealand!

#SPEEDYTUESDAY

An online community tribute

In 2012, an online community of #SpeedyTuesday fans began to grow around the world, with Speedmaster pictures and comments being shared every week. In tribute to these Speedmaster devotees, OMEGA produced this new Limited Edition model to celebrate the 5th anniversary. It marks the first OMEGA watch marketed purely through social media and sold exclusively online, and the design was based on several vintage models from the past including the “Alaska III”.

APOLLO-SOYUZ

First Speedmaster with meteorite dial

With a dial and subdials made from slices of meteorite, this Speedmaster was built from a real piece of space. It commemorates the historic moment when astronaut Thomas P. Stafford (USA) and cosmonaut Alexei A. Leonov (USSR) shook hands in space in 1975. The caseback features two spacecraft from both the USA and the Soviet Union and the names of the cosmonauts and astronauts involved.

APOLLO-SOYUZ

With their spacecraft docking together in space in 1975, the Apollo and Soyuz commanders shook hands through an open hatch and signaled a bright future for the two nations. This gold watch was created to mark the 25th anniversary of that landmark event and was limited to 50 pieces. The mission name appears in English and Cyrillic in the counter at 6 o’clock and a special dedication inscription is included on the caseback.

PERPETUAL CALENDAR

For Switzerland’s 700th anniversary

This Speedmaster model was limited to 50 pieces. Although it celebrated the 700th anniversary of Switzerland, the watch was released exclusively for the Japanese market. As well as the chronograph function, it also includes a Moonphase and a perpetual calendar programmed up to the year 2100. It is often considered to be the most complicated watch OMEGA has ever produced in series.
