I am not the accomplished mariner that our proofreader Gerard is, yet guiding one of the hustling boats in 2018 is probably the coolest thing I’ve ever done.

It was a home game for us when the Volvo Ocean Race was held in Scheveningen in The Netherlands. Omega had a little astonishment for us , that we could go along with one of the boats entering the harbor of Scheveningen. I regularly feel fortunate that I am doing this work at Fratello. It makes it conceivable to visit puts and do things I would somehow or another never have done.

America’s Cup Limited Edition

Around 20 years prior, I just began watch gathering. I recollect Omega delivering their extraordinary Seamaster 300M America’s Cup, with white gold bezel. I actually have the authority press envelope (printed, with real photos of the watch). That watch established a significant connection with me. A little minor departure from the 300M “Bond”, however unique enough to be awesome.

Since 1995

The America’s Cup traces all the way back to 1851. It is a match race, such as boxing, one against one, however then cruising. The amazing challenge is famous for its standards: the victor (the ‘Safeguard’) chooses the setting for the following release, after three years, in addition to a large portion of the principles of commitment. In this way, the victor has an unmistakable bit of leeway toward the beginning. The combination of best in class boats, the cruel conditions, and the obvious wear on the men all add to the fascination of this incredible occasion. Omega has been engaged with the America’s Cup since 1995.

Raynald Aeschlimann, President & CEO of Omega SA once said: “The America’s Cup resembles the Olympic Games or extraordinary golf competitions: it doesn’t come around consistently or consistently. It is THE occasion. There is a ton to do about it, individuals talk about it, media report on it. There is nothing similar to it. As far as I might be concerned, it resembles the moon”.

For the 36th release of this cup, Omega is again the authority watch. This release will happen in 2021 in New Zeeland. Our giver Paul Dezentjé composed a cool article on Omega and the America’s Cup in our Seamaster 300M Magazine. This magazine is accessible (for nothing) download here .
