The Ryder Cup is the most unique and exciting golf competition of the year because of its annual head-to-head matches between the USA and Europe in team match play. It has also created some of the most classic golf moments over the years. Since watches and golf have shared such a long and intertwined relationship as the gentleman’s accessory and the ultimate gentleman’s game, it is no surprise Omega’s latest limited edition, the Seamaster Aqua Terra Ryder Cup Limited Edition, celebrates this connection.
At 41.5mm in diameter, this Aqua Terra is cast in stainless steel. The dial of this piece leaves no question as to what this watch is celebrating – white with golf ball dimples spanning almost the entire dial. This dimple texture dial is paired with blue steel hands and markers and a little yellow gold for a pop. Under the dial lies an Omega in-house caliber 8500 co-axial movement with 60 hour power reserve. For added detail, the Ryder Cup logo has been placed on the rotor that can be seen through the sapphire crystal exhibition case back. This piece comes with two strap options, a stainless steel bracelet, as well as a blue nylon strap that matches the blue steel of the markers on the dial.
Yes, Omega comes out with way too many limited editions. At least this Ryder Cup limited edition is more than just a few different colors on the dial or markers. This golf ball dimple dial is unmistakable and makes for a cool golf timepiece. The Ryder Cup Tournament is both a fan and player favorite of the year and well worth a commemorative timepiece. You will have to visit your local Omega boutique to get a look at this one. MSRP $7,350.
