Change your accessories and you can change your look, a long-held fashion principle that stands up well when applied to the Omega Aqua Terra. A change of hands to the colour blue, add a touch of yellow to the tip of the seconds sweep, combine splashes of red and blue to the lettering, tint the minute index blue and, wallah!, you have sportified an otherwise subdued, but classic-looking AT.
This new colour palette has been created to mark Omega’s inaugural sponsorship of the Ryder Cup. Team USA Captain and Omega Ambassador, Davis Love 111, will wear this special “Captain’s Watch” when he hits off on Friday, September 28th this year.
The Ryder Cup is one of the more interesting tournaments on the bi-annual golfing calendar, in-as-much as the players are not competing for prize money the size of the annual deficit of Argentina, but, rather, just for the sport of it and the prospect of giving the USA’s traditional “Old Europe” rivals a drubbing.
Released as a special edition, the Captain’s Aqua Terra may not improve your handicap, but it will enable you to whack up a few divots with a tad more confidence. To me, it adds a bit of colour to this perfect day or weekend sporting watch and will look great under the cuffs of a dark navy suit accessorised with a power red tie.
All of the customary AT features accompany this red, silver and blue edition, including a display black that enables you to marvel at the engineering and finish of the in-house calibre 8500.
