Af­ter win­ning the 100th U.S. PGA Cham­pi­onship, Brooks Koepka was pre­sented with an Omega Sea­mas­ter Aqua Terra 150M.

SINCE 2011, OMEGA HAS BEEN AN OF­FI­CIAL PA­TRON OF THE PGA OF AMER­ICA, A ROLE WHICH HAS EN­FORCED THE BRAND’S COM­MIT­MENT TO THE GROWTH OF GOLF. AF­TER WIN­NING THE 100TH U.S. PGA CHAM­PI­ONSHIP AT BEL­LERIVE COUN­TRY CLUB FOR HIS THIRD MA­JOR CHAM­PI­ONSHIP VIC­TORY, BROOKS KOEPKA WAS PRE­SENTED WITH AN OMEGA SEA­MAS­TER AQUA TERRA 150M BY PGA OF AMER­ICA PRES­I­DENT PAUL LEVY

On-site at the U.S. PGA Cham­pi­onship, Omega pro­vided spec­ta­tors with an in­ter­ac­tive photo op­por­tu­nity at the dig­i­tal selfie wall in The Cham­pi­onship Shops fea­tur­ing life-size images of McIl­roy, Gar­cia and Fleet­wood. The dig­i­tal images of these am­bas­sadors spoke to fans en­ter­ing the tent en­cour­ag­ing them to take a selfie with them.

The Omega On-site Bou­tique in­side The Cham­pi­onship Shops pro­vided fans with a chance to try on and pur­chase Omega prod­ucts.

“It’s al­ways such a great priv­i­lege to be an Of­fi­cial Pa­tron at this pres­ti­gious Ma­jor. This year, we’ve ex­pe­ri­enced the won­der­ful hospi­tal­ity here in St. Louis and saw com­pet­i­tive golf at its best. Omega con­grat­u­lates all the play­ers and looks for­ward to see­ing them again in New York next May for the 101st PGA Cham­pi­onship,” com­mented Ray­nald Aeschli­mann, Pres­i­dent and CEO of Omega.

Omega’s Sea­mas­ter Aqua Terra has al­ways pro­vided the per­fect bal­ance be­tween so­phis­ti­ca­tion and ocean spirit. In the new Master Chronome­ter col­lec­tion, some of the most pop­u­lar fea­tures have been en­hanced or sub­tly trans­formed to give the time­piece an

added edge of style and a re­fresh­ing new look.

The first notable change can be found in the Aqua Terra’s teak con­cept dial. Mod­elled af­ter the decks of lux­ury yachts, it is one of the watch’s most defin­ing fea­tures. For this col­lec­tion, the teak pat­tern now runs hor­i­zon­tally, as op­posed to ver­ti­cally. The date win­dow has been moved from 3 to 6 o’clock to add sym­me­try to the de­sign and also in trib­ute to the de­sign of the Au­to­matic Sea­mas­ter Cal­en­dar from 1952 - the first Omega watch with a date win­dow.

To max­imise this idea of sym­me­try, the cases have been re­shaped for a

beau­ti­fully bal­anced look. If the dial ap­pears cleaner and sim­pler, that’s be­cause Omega has taken away the “wa­ter-re­sis­tance” word­ing and en­graved it on the case­back in­stead. A new con­i­cal crown com­pletes the makeover, in­spired by the wave-edge de­sign found on the case­back.

For now, three of the new mod­els are pre­sented. The first is a 41mm model made from stain­less steel and 18K Sedna™ gold. It fea­tures a sil­very dial with black hands and in­dexes as well as a black rub­ber strap, new to the Aqua Terra, which is aes­thet­i­cally in­te­grated into the de­sign of the case by an 18K Sedna™ gold link.

The 41mm stain­less steel model on a brown leather strap in­cludes a sil­very dial with black hands and in­dexes and a var­nished or­ange sec­onds hand. There is an or­ange “Sea­mas­ter” in­scrip­tion on the dial, com­ple­mented by or­ange num­ber­ing on the minute track at the 15, 30, 45 and 60 sec­ond points - the four car­di­nal points linked with sail­ing nav­i­ga­tion and the tra­di­tional com­pass.

The 38mm model is pre­sented in pure stain­less steel with a deep blue dial and rhodium-plated hands and in­dexes. Im­por­tantly, Omega has again achieved a bet­ter in­te­gra­tion be­tween the case and bracelet. Not only does this im­prove the aes­thet­ics, but it also pro­vides a bet­ter fit for wear­ers with slim wrists.

Turn­ing the watches over re­veals a waveedged case­back de­sign with sap­phire-crys­tal through which you can see the Omega Master Chronome­ter cal­i­bre 8900 or 8800. These im­pres­sive move­ments, along with each watch, have reached the high­est level of cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for pre­ci­sion and per­for­mance as ap­proved by the Swiss Fed­eral In­sti­tute of Metrol­ogy (METAS). The watches come with Omega’s full 4-year war­ranty.
