Omega’s New Speedmaster Belongs on the Water

The new Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Alinghi celebrates an America’ Cup winner.

Omega is continuing its association with America’s Cup, the oldest international sport trophy, via a brand-new Speedmaster produced in partnership with Alinghi, a sailing team founded in 1994 by Italian-born Swiss entrepreneur Ernesto Bertarelli.
