Swiss Precision Meets Ocean Adventure: DELMA joins OHOR as Official Timing Partner

OHOR (Oliver Heer Ocean Racing) is delighted to announce a new partnership with DELMA, a boutique Swiss watchmaker specialising in sports and divers’ watches.  

This collaboration brings together two Swiss organisations, both dedicated to performance, exploration and pushing boundaries. Both are small, independent, and family run and familiar with competing against much bigger teams.

Celebrating their 100th Anniversary this year, DELMA have a history of robustness and reliability. They embody the same spirit of adventure, innovation and resilience as skipper Oliver Heer who is preparing to take on the most challenging of all solo offshore races; the Vendée Globe, starting in November 2024.

"We are excited to welcome DELMA as a partner," comments Ollie Heer, founder and skipper of the OHOR team. "Their dedication to performance and exploration resonates deeply with our team. As a fellow Swiss, we share a common heritage and a drive to excel, making this partnership a natural fit."

Andreas Leibundgut, Marketing Director for DELMA adds "At DELMA, we are proud to support the OHOR team. Their unwavering commitment to pushing boundaries and acheiving the extraordinary aligns perfectly with our brand values. We are confident that this partnership will be a source of inspiration for all who share our passion for performance and exploration."

About DELMA:


DELMA stands as a beacon of Swiss watchmaking heritage, proudly independent and family-owned since its establishment in Lengnau (BE) in 1924. As it celebrates its centennial this year, DELMA reflects on a century of crafting exceptional sports and divers' watches, embodying the essence of precision and innovation.


In 1969, DELMA made its mark with the launch of the Periscope, its inaugural divers' timepiece, igniting a legacy of excellence in marine watchmaking. This journey reached new heights in 1975 with the introduction of the Shell Star, acclaimed by renowned divers for its professional-grade performance, cementing DELMA's devotion to crafting superior timepieces. Continuing its legacy of innovation, the Blue Shark pushes the boundaries of contemporary strength with each iteration, showcasing DELMA's unwavering commitment to excellence.


DELMA's dedication to sailing shines through in the Oceanmaster series, a testament to its collaboration with the IMOCA class and the world’s best offshore sailors. The brand's collection extends beyond the maritime realm, encompassing an array of exquisite pilot, dress, and ladies' watches.
