    New Omega... Bogeymaster

    http://news.omegawatches.com/HM?b=Al...bF_xGKJMAA6JZg

    "A golf game is a battle of wills, so it's a good thing you can rely on a strap with a military history. In sporty green and black, or orange and black, our NATO straps will keep your Aqua Terra firmly in place, even when the going gets rough."

    I know it's easy to sneer at Omega's offerings sometimes, but really this is about as tenuous a link as I can imagine.

    "It's a golfing Seamaster because Rory McElroy likes orange and so we've coloured a few bits in orange and got him to wear it and so that's why it's a golfing Seamaster.."


    (not actual quote).

    The watches are quite funky and interesting though.

    I like them. Nice looking and a bit of fun. I can see they wouldn't be everyones cup of tea though.

    This Golf model has been around for a while . Canít really see the issue really . IWC yacht clubs , Rolex Wimbledon limited edition , various watch makers aligning with Motor Companies. Even Heuer having Gulf Dials from back in the day.
    Why shouldnít a watch company align itself with sports? Itís high end sports luxury which is the key segment for most Swiss Luxury watch brands , or am I missing something ?

    I have the original al golf with the 8500 calibre on the bracelet and the green is just enough to really look good. Donít mind these but not on nato.

    Fair comment I suppose but this feels such a half-hearted effort. At least some of the tie-ins you mentioned had a reasoning behind them. This is just a Seamaster that's been re-coloured with no golfing functionality or heritage.

    The one with orange accent looks pretty good. Couldn't care less what it is called.

    Aqua Terras are lovely but not with a NATO, Iím afraid.
