DRIVING THE FUTURE OF GOLF
Across the fairways of the world, golf is a game that is growing fast. Its history is brimming with prestige but a new generation of stars and fans has arrived. OMEGA is committed to helping them push the game forwards and has now associated its name with some of the most important competitions, organisations and players.
“Every journey is about the destination. With the right people and support, golf can reach even further across the world.”
THE PGA CHAMPIONSHIP
Played beneath the summer sun in May, the PGA Championship is the second Major of the season. With the coveted Wanamaker Trophy on the line, it always brings out the best players in the game. As the Official Timekeeper of the PGA of America, OMEGA has recorded every second of the PGA Championship since 2011.
OMEGA in Action
THE OMEGA SEAMASTER AQUA TERRA “GOLF”
These stainless steel 41 mm watches feature symmetrical cases and horizontal teak patterned dials. Green or orange has been used to colour the central seconds hands, as well as some wording and numbers on the minute track. The watches are presented on striped NATO straps and are powered by the OMEGA Master Chronometer calibre 8900.
“I’ve always liked OMEGA watches, mainly for the creativity, evolving designs and the craftsmanship.”
Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy has proven himself to be a remarkable player who is truly worthy of his place near the top of the world rankings. An inspiration for all future golfers, he has claimed numerous Major victories and has often been in the victorious European team for the Ryder Cup.
Showing what possibility is made of, Michelle Wie is an inspiration for any player starting their career. She was the youngest player ever to qualify for the USGA Amateur Championship at the age of 10. From there, her career blossomed and, in 2014, she won her first Major at the U.S. Women’s Open Championship.
THE OMEGA EUROPEAN MASTERS
Surrounded by the majesty of the impressive Swiss Alps, the OMEGA European Masters is contested in Crans-Montana each year. It is Europe’s oldest golf competition and a place where many rising stars are born.
THE GLOBAL GAME
OMEGA DUBAI DESERT CLASSIC
The Middle East is a truly unique golfing destination. Where sand meets skyscrapers, tournaments here are fast becoming an attractive place for the world’s best players. The OMEGA Dubai Ladies Classic and the OMEGA Dubai Desert Classic - dubbed the "Major of the Middle East" - are two of the most prestigious events in the region and OMEGA is backing each competition with passion and pride.
THE RYDER CUP
When continents collide, history is made! The Ryder Cup is golf’s great rivalry between teams from the U.S.A and Europe. Contested every two years, it is a competition of individual talent and team unity. When the tournament is played in America, OMEGA serves as the Official Timekeeper, as well as being the choice of the US Ryder Cup team.
THE LADIES SEAMASTER AQUA TERRA
Presented on a white leather strap, this 34 mm timepiece has been created in 18K Sedna™ gold and features a diamond-paved bezel. To add a touch of softness, the dial is made from white mother-of-pearl, with diamond markers at every hour.
In 1904, George Lyon shot his way to an Olympic Games gold medal in golf. 112 years later, the sport teed off again at Rio 2016, and as the Official Timekeeper, OMEGA was central to the occasion. In 2020, the next wave of players will arrive in Tokyo, hoping to win golf’s rarest prize.
