Omega Aqua Terra 150M 'Ryder Cup'

Post by koimaster » August 16th 2018, 9:12am

The Ryder Cup, a biennial tournament that pits Europe's greatest golfers against those from America, is one of the biggest events in the sport of golf. In a sport that is as thoroughly individual as they come, it stands out for its ability to make teammates of rivals. Through a partnership with the PGA Tour of America, Omega is the official timekeeper of the Ryder Cup when it is played in the States, in addition to being the official watch chosen by the U.S. team.



In the lead up to the next Ryder Cup, which starts September 28 in France, Omega has released its official Ryder Cup watch in the form of specially branded 41mm Seamaster Aqua Terra. This is the Seamaster Aqua Terra that readers are likely already familiar with: It comes with a stainless steel case and a highly antimagnetic movement that has been certified as a Master Chronometer. But there are also some notable differences. The dial, strap, and caseback have gold accents. The end links of the strap, the Omega applied logo, and the central seconds hand are made from 18k gold, while the case back has a 24k gold rendering of the Ryder Cup logo applied to its surface. The watch comes in the presentation box pictured here, along with a Ryder Cup travel pouch and a stainless steel bracelet.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Date window at 6 o'clock - OK. Red accents - OK. Horizontal teak pattern - not OK (the vertical one was a lot better). Gold accents and end links in this colour scheme - not OK. The design of the end links (or whatever the fuck these two golden warts between the lugs are) - incredibly ghey.
You cannot explain away a wantonly immoral act, because you think that it is connected to some higher purpose.
