OMEGA witnesses history as the Official Timekeeper of the golfing tournament
The 41st Ryder Cup has come to a close at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota with victory going to the U.S. Team. As well as being the Official Timekeeper of the tournament, OMEGA is also proud to be the choice of the U.S. Team and it was a particularly exciting moment to see the American team win.
Earlier in the week, OMEGA partnered with 28-time Olympic Games Medalist and OMEGA ambassador, Michael Phelps, to present each member of the U.S. Ryder Cup Team with their very own OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra “Ryder Cup” Limited Edition timepiece.
Throughout the event, thousands of guests discovered OMEGA’s unique timepieces and rich brand history at the specially-themed fan experience “PLANET OMEGA”. The PLANET OMEGA exhibition covered OMEGA’s Watchmaking, Sporting Spirit, Sea Exploration, Ladies’ Watches, Space Travel, James Bond and Social Responsibility. Each section contained a collection of OMEGA’s most notable timepieces, while also detailing the stories behind them.
Fans at home were also able to experience PLANET OMEGA and the Ryder Cup for themselves, by following Michael Phelps as he commandeered the OMEGA Instagram page @omega to share his experiences at the exhibition and throughout the Celebrity Matches.
As Official Timekeeper and proud Patron of the PGA of America, OMEGA now looks ahead to the 2017 PGA Championship, set to be played Aug. 7-13, 2017 at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C.
