Rory McIlroy has a close partnership with Omega, to which both have been perfecting their crafts since the beginning. A special edition Speedmaster ’57 is being created to commemorate a significant achievement in Rory’s past. At the age of 16, the professional golfer set a course record at Royal Portrush Golf Club with a score of 61. This event helped push him into the next stage of his career. The Omega Speedmaster ’57 Rory McIlroy Special Edition uses gold as the material throughout the watch. The 41.5mm case holds Omega’s 9301 calibre that has a power reserve of 60 hours.
The uniquely designed sub-dials are designed with a 60-second and 12-hour function. When illuminated at night the 9 o’clock sub-dial clarifies numbers 16 and 61, which cannot be viewed during the day. Other than gold, black accents are found on the dial and tachymeter to compliment the precious metal. The Special Edition Omega Speedmaster ’57 Rory McIlroy is priced at $34,600 and currently available for preorder by clicking the link below.
