While Cheap Omega Replica new Globemaster range was one of the brand’s more discussed launches at this year’s Baselworld, its latest Seamaster Chronograph edition for Team New Zealand was probably one of the most overlooked new releases — which is reflected by how difficult it still is to find official information about it. Fortunately, we at Omega Replica Watches had the chance to briefly handle one of these watches at Omega’s HQ in Bienne. Hence, this photo-heavy essay on it for this week’s edition of Dive Watch Wednesday:

Earlier ETNZ versions were powered by Omega’s Caliber 3330, and limited to the same number as the year in which the watch was released, so it’s probably safe to assume that we are dealing with similar specs for this Omega Replica. Also, we can assume that the 44-mm watch will most likely be dedicated to the 35th America’s Cup race in 2017, and that the crown at 10 o’clock is still a helium release valve – in this case it also acts as a date corrector btw.
All the above being the case, this Cheap Replica Watches most essential feature is its 30-minute regatta timer at 3 o’clock, which measures the five-minute countdown to the beginning of a regatta. Another nice detail: all its chronograph-related features are in red.
First impressions: If you don’t like the typical regatta-timer look but are looking for a sailing-themed watch, Omega Replica Watches latest ETNZ chronograph might be something to look out for, since it also offers a very attractive color combination. We are not sure about the white date display – while it does offer some balance for the dial in combination with the 12 o’clock index, a gray one could have been an even better match. We do, however, love the overall look, the polished numbers on the matte ceramic bezel, the new regatta timer on the subdial and the red chronograph pusher at 2 o’clock.

The watch was officially launched at a special event in the Olympic host city on August 3rd, where Cheap Omega Replica also announced three Olympic athletes — Brazilian sailor and five-time medalist Torben Grael and his daughter Martine Grael, and her partner Kahena Kunze, both world-ranked sailors — as new “friends of the brand.” The Omega Seamaster Rio 2016 Limited Edition features stylistic touches that call out its connection to the Olympics on both the blue, perforated leather strap, with yellow, green, red, and black stitching that echoes the color of the iconic Olympic rings; and on the inner rotating bezel, where those same colors are used for the numerals at five-minute increments.

The unusual case design is a callback to a Omega Replica Watches released in 1969, a chronograph watch used by rally drivers to time laps and which was nicknamed “Bullhead” by watch aficionados for the odd shape of the case, with its top-mounted winding crown flanked by two big chronograph pushers. Like the original Bullhead watch, the Rio 2016 model has a central chronograph seconds hand and a 30-minute chronograph subdial at 12 o’clock. Small seconds are on a subdial at 6 o’clock and the date is in a window at 3 o’clock.
The movement that powers all of these functions is Omega Replica in-house co-axial Caliber 3113, which features automatic winding and a column-wheel chronograph mechanism. The caseback is stamped with the Rio 2016 Olympic Games logo, marking the Cheap Replica Watches as a special edition. Only 316 watches will be made, priced at $9,600; its release date was August 5, 2015, precisely one year ahead of the Olympic Opening Ceremonies in Rio.
The Omega Seamaster Bullhead “Rio 2016” Limited Edition joins the Speedmaster Mark II “Rio 2016,” released in 2014, among the brand’s lineup of limited-edition watches made in honor of the 2016 Olympics.
