As well as providing its support, OMEGA also equipped the crew with a specially-made watch for racing. The Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ included an ingenious Regatta function allowing the team to keep track of the critical five-minute countdown to the start of each race. Once racing was underway, the X-33 enabled the crew to measure progress.

OMEGA’s partnership with Emirates Team New Zealand began in 1995 alongside the legendary round-the-world skipper and America’s Cup legend Sir Peter Blake. Since then, OMEGA’s support has only grown stronger. The brand continues to admire the strength and ability of the team and was particularly proud to have its brand name on the boat this year.
