Omega Official Timekeeper of the 36th America’s Cup
Omega is announcing its role as the Official Timekeeper of the 36th America’s Cup set to take place in March 2021 and the launch of a brand new Limited Edition timepiece.
Dating back to 1851, the America’s Cup is renowned as the oldest trophy in international sport and has become the source of fierce international rivalries and spectacular sailing duels.
This will mark the third time in history that Omega has served in the prestigious sailing role, ever since the brand begun its partnership with Emirates Team New Zealand in 1995. Returning to New Zealand in 2021, Omega’s timekeeping excellence and long experience in sailing is sure to be highlighted through new technologies and never-seen-before equipment that will enhance every second of racing.

This special relationship began alongside the legendary sailor Sir Peter Blake, and has continued for 25 years, with a shared passion for innovation, technology, speed and accuracy.
