Two weeks ago Rory McIlroy shared a picture of a special Speedmaster ’57, which his ‘Omega family’ gifted him for his 30th birthday. As a suave follow-up, today he shared that the watch will in fact be made as a special edition.
The Omega Speedmaster ’57 Rory McIlroy Special Edition 318.104.22.168.08.001 is based on the 2013 reference 322.214.171.124.02.001. The silver dial of the standard model is swapped out in favor a sun-brushed champagne dial with a black minute track, and black stars on the sub dials that refer to the spikes on golf shoes. The watch is powered by Omega’s caliber 9301.
The Omega Speedmaster ’57 Rory McIlroy Special Edition 3126.96.36.199.08.001 is presumed to be a limited edition though at this point I am not sure how many will be made. 61 pieces?
