Let the countdown begin as we approach two huge 2024 sporting events: the Olympics in Paris and the America’s Cup in Barcelona. OMEGA is marking the moment with launches that pay homage to the sporting life.
OMEGA’s latest Seamaster salutes Emirates Team New Zealand
For generations, OMEGA has honored athletes and supported sporting events around the globe. As the countdown to the 2024 Paris Olympic Games begins, the event’s official timekeeper since 1931 clocks in with two special launches. The Seamaster Diver 300M “Paris 2024” Special Edition offers an exclusive tribute to the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad. Available exclusively at OMEGA boutiques in the host city of Paris, the 42 mm timepiece is craft ed in stainless steel and 18K Moonshine Gold—OMEGA’s very own fade-resistant, yellow gold alloy. A gold bezel nods to the coveted medals of the games, while the date display employs the Paris 2024 typography to inscribe the numbers in black. The central seconds hand carries a small yet visible Paris 2024 emblem. The watch’s stainless steel bracelet boasts OMEGA’s new patented Quick Change System, meaning the wearer can easily switch it for something more personal— perhaps a Quick Change rubber strap in either red, white or blue—or even a dedicated Paris 2024 NATO Strap.

To mark the approaching America’s Cup in Barcelona in 2024, OMEGA’s Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black ETNZ Edition pays a logo-inspired tribute to the defending champions Emirates Team New Zealand. “Much like our friends from Emirates Team New Zealand, a year races by fast, so the time is right to show our true colors,” says OMEGA President and CEO Raynald Aeschlimann. “Our race-ready watch looks as good as it performs and is a fitting tribute to the talented crew and the country they represent.” The 45.5 mm Seamaster Planet Ocean blends deep black with the turquoise of the Emirates Team New Zealand logo. On the matte ceramic dial, OMEGA has included a nod to pre-race protocol with a countdown indicator at 3 o’clock, complete with flagged “Start.” Perfect timing, indeed.
