America will be taking on Europe’s best golfers in Paris next month as the 43rd Ryder Cup tees-off, and Omega will be there as a partner of the PGA of America to cheer on the US team.
Ahead of the tournament, Omega has revealed a Seamaster Aqua Terra “Ryder Cup” timepiece at this week’s PGA Championship in St. Louis.
The watchmaker’s CEO Raynald Aeschlimann was at the Bellerive Country Club to launch the timepiece alongside PGA of America chief Pete Bevacqua.
“We know that the players love the Ryder Cup, so it’s a wonderful event to be associated with,” said Mr Aeschlimann. “The watch has a colorful link to the competition’s logo, and we’re pleased to provide golf fans with a truly unique design.”
The 41mm Ryder Cup watch houses a Master Chronometer Calibre 8900 in a stainless steel case with a silvery opaline dial with horizontal stripes and a date window at six o’clock.
The hour/minute hands and indexes are blued with white Super-LumiNova, while 18ct yellow gold has been used for the Omega logo and central seconds hand.
There are also small touches of red within the design, including on the quarter numbers on the minutes track as well as the Seamaster wording.
The watch is worn on a blue rubber strap.
