OMEGA constellation deville seamaster speedmaster specialities


From rookies to race-hardened veterans, sailors from all levels of the sport have taken to the water knowing that OMEGA is there in support. The brand proudly backs entire crews, such as Emirates Team New Zealand, times historic events such as the America’s Cup, and even supports the efforts of Olympic Games champions, including Peter Burling and Blair Tuke.


When the 37th America’s Cup takes place in Barcelona, we’ll be back on the water, serving the best sailors in the world for the fourth time. The “Auld Mug” is the sport’s most coveted trophy and crews competing in 2023 can be confident we’ll time each race around the buoys with split-second precision. The words OMEGA Official Timekeeper graced the sails in 2000, 2003 and 2021. The next edition is approaching fast – and OMEGA is ready.


OMEGA has been a passionate supporter, sponsor, and Official Timekeeper of Emirates Team New Zealand since 1995, when the brand partnered with America's Cup legend, the late Sir Peter Blake. Since then, OMEGA has cheered on some of the most memorable victories in America’s Cup history and delivered the precision timepieces chosen by the kiwi team, such as the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M.


… “Precision, accuracy and pioneering spirit are fundamental to what we do and OMEGA has been right by our side for over 20 years”…

Grant Dalton, CEO of Emirates Team New Zealand
