To celebrate the 36th running of the storied America’s Cup – the most famous sailing race on earth – this year in New Zealand, Omega has crafted the eye-catching and innovative Seamaster Diver 300m America’s Cup edition. Several aspects set this watch apart not just from its dive watch cousins, but also its Seamaster brethren. Namely, a wholly original patented Quick Change mechanism found on the underside of the bracelet and rubber strap allows lightning-fast changes without tools. We hope this catches on! Other watchmakers, take note!
Additional features in the Omega 126.96.36.199.03.002 include all the standard high-performance aspects found on other Diver 300m chronographs but with special updates including red and blue pushers, a locking mechanism to prevent the bezel from twisting inadvertently during intense races, and a redesigned, red-accented stacked chronograph complication at the 3 o’clock position. With endless features packed in its big (44mm) and bold (just look at it!) case, the Omega America’s Cup can run the toughest races you throw at it. Anchors aweigh!
