Delma Oceanmaster Antarctica

Delma’s dedication to sports timepieces began early in its 95-year history and has strengthened with modern technology and style. With the new Oceanmaster Delma sets out to apply its experience to creating a timepiece that calls on nature for inspiration and supports its future.


he Antarctica admirably joins the collection of sailing inspired timepieces to celebrate the discovery of one of the most unique places on earth.

Dynamic discovery

Nick Moloney granted Delma an undeniable opportunity to develop a new model that would assist him and his team on their expedition to Antarctica in February 2020 to commemorate its discovery 200 years ago. While this was a poignant way for Delma to expand its partnership with long distance sailing, Delam also considered the context in which this journey was taking place. When Antarctica’s Princess Martha Coast was first discovered on 27 January 1820, the explorers were presented with a goliath ice shelf that reached out from the frozen continent.

This year Nick and his team saw a new perspective of this fragile landscape as its impressive coastline constantly evolves. While the Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica is one of the most pristine places on Earth, largely unaffected by humans, the nearly 10,000 diverse species that call this unique habitat home are in danger. The Antarctic Peninsula is one of the fastest warming places on earth. During the team’s expedition, the warmest temperature on the northern tip of Antarctica was recorded, over 20 °C.

“The opportunity to sail to the majestic continent of Antarctica on the occasion of 200 years since its discovery provided astounding perspective into the power and fragility of Earth’s dynamic continents and creatures. Having a specially designed Delma timepiece to accompany me on the journey connected me to humanity’s incredible technical achievements while I experienced our effects and need to strive for a positive impact worldwide. “ - Nick Moloney, Ocean adventurer & Delma Ambassador

Time for preservation

In order to give the project even greater significance, and support the future of this captivating place, Delma felt compelled to contribute to preservation efforts. Delma is proud to support the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition (ASOC) in their mission to protect this great wilderness and the fascinating wildlife that relies on it by donating a portion of the proceeds of each Oceanmaster Antarctica.

Tangible beauty

Delma’s fascination with and compassion for this incredible continent is also reflected in the design of the new Oceanmaster. The cool blue dial is inspired by the colors of the ice as it meets the surrounding water while the raised texture represents the unique structure of the frozen landscape. The choice to create a limited edition of 200 pieces was derived from the milestone anniversary which it commemorates.
