Swiss luxury watchmaker Omega based in Biel pays tribute to Rory McIlroy with a special edition watch. “In particular, it celebrates the incredible course record of 61 he shot at Royal Portrush Golf Club at age 16 – a moment that helped ignite his career.”The timepiece comes housed in a 41.50 mm 18K yellow gold case with matching bracelet, tachymeter bezel, and features a sun-brushed champagne dial in PVD yellow gold with a blackened outer zone, like the original Speedmaster from 1957.
At the heart of this chronograph is the self-winding movement OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 9301 with 60 hours of power reserve.
The Omega Speedmaster ’57 Rory McIlroy Special Edition is priced at $34,600. For more info be sure to visit Omega’s website.
