As one of the world’s most sought after watch brands, Omega has no problem attracting high profile names to front its campaigns. Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne (picture above) is the latest celebrity to become an Omega ambassador, joining a star-studded list including Daniel Craig, George Clooney, Nicole Kidman and Cindy Crawford.

However, as any keen sailor will know, the Swiss watchmaker has historically had a strong connection to the sea, particularly in its long-standing sponsorship of the America’s Cup Team New Zealand. Click through to see our pick of the top sailors who have made Omega their watch of choice.

Sir Peter Blake

Omega’s association with Team New Zealand began back in 1995 when skipper Peter Blake, often thought to be the world’s most famous sailor, became an ambassador for the brand. Blake led his team to victory in the same year, which Omega celebrated by releasing a special edition Seamaster Peter Blake watch. After he retired from professional racing, Omega continued to support Blake’s Blakexpeditions projects – and he in turn named his boat The Seamaster – until his tragic death in 2001.

Skipper Dean Barker picked up Sir Peter Blake’s mantle, not only at Team New Zealand, but also as an Omega ambassador and advocate for oceanic health. Barker worked with Omega from 2001 through to the 34th America’s Cup in 2013, during which time he led his team to a second place finish at the 2011-2012 America’s Cup and Omega launched a limited edition Seamaster Diver ENTZ watch to celebrate the America’s Cup in San Francisco.
