New watch from Omega – the Seamaster Diver ETNZ LE – direct competition with the Planet Ocean Chronograph?

As a partner of Emirates Team New Zealand, Omega has created a limited edition watch to commemorate the team.

The watch is a Seamaster chronograph with the cal. 3330 inside. Not the latest movement by Omega but sufficient for the job at hand. By having a five minute countdown markings on the minute sub-dial at three o’clock, this watch can function as a regatta countdown timer.

The case, which similar in shape to the Seamaster Chronograph but bigger at 44 mm in diameter. Meanwhile, position of the sub-dials follows closely the Planet Ocean Chronograph layout. Water resistance set at 300 m. An Emirates Team New Zealand logo decorates the case back.

The red “Omega” brand printed on the straps plus the red colours used on the dial really pops out. Unfortunately, its size puts it directly in competition with the Planet Ocean Chronograph. If given a choice, it is red versus orange.

I prefer the orange.
