OMEGA and ALINGHI: A Dynamic Partnership

By: Jamie McFadden

Celebrating their partnership with ALINGHI, OMEGA launches a brand-new addition to the Speedmaster family.

The dynamic partnership between OMEGA and ALINGHI has continued to bring together the very best of Swiss precision, innovation and a pioneering spirit. In honour of this unique sailing collaboration, a new OMEGA Speedmaster timepiece has now been launched.

The new OMEGA Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon ALINGHI is a watch demonstrating the same values and qualities that both partners share.

Choosing the iconic Speedmaster family perfectly reflects the speed at which boats fly across the water. One of its most impressive features is the expertly decorated Calibre 1865. This manual-winding movement is ideal for sailing crews due to a lighter and thinner design.

Enhancing the movement, OMEGA has taken inspiration from ALINGHI’s new TF35 catamaran. Using laser ablation, the main plate and barrel bridge have an added honeycomb effect, like that which is displayed on the interior of the ALINGHI boat’s carbon hull.

For the overall colour coding, OMEGA matches the new Speedmaster with the ALINGHI logo, including red to represent passion and black for technology. This can be seen through features such as the perforated black and red rubber strap, as well as the 44.25mm case in black zirconium oxide ceramic.

Two of the watch’s sub-dials are also worthy of attention. At 3 o’clock, a 4-minute or 5-minute tactical time display has been included in red, helping with the precision when on the water. At 6 o’clock, the traditional sub-dial design has been replaced with a sandblasted and anodized aluminum disc, which features the ALINGHI logo transferred in red.

OMEGA and ALINGHI formed their partnership in 2019 and have already enjoyed racing success thanks to the team’s GC32 world title in June 2019, D35 Trophy win in September and GC32 championship in November.
