If you are into sports, even just a little bit, you were probably watching The Masters yesterday. And, like many, you were probably doing so with a smile on your face as you watched Sergio Garcia win. Not only has he been in the game since 1999, but he also came back after a rough 13th hole and won the playoff after sinking his putt against Justin Rose. And on his wrist as he donned the famous green jacket? His trusty Omega Replica, of course.
Garcia, who has been an Omega Replica ambassador since 2003, received an Omega Replica Seamaster Planet Ocean “Deep Black” the Wednesday prior to the tournament, and was seen sporting it when receiving his green jacket (and his $1.9 million prize). If you were watching the action live (or caught up today in photos like the one below), you’ll have noticed that Garcia didn’t wear the watch – or any watch, for that matter – during play, only after he had clinched his first Masters victory.
The Deep Black Collection was released in June 2016 and gave us Omega’s first four all-ceramic GMT divers. Each watch is built from a solid block of ceramic (which might explain why Garcia didn’t wear his during the tournament) and the bezel is made of a ceramic/rubber blend with the first 15 minutes in colored Liquidmetal (blue in Garcia’s case). The watch is powered by the Omega Master Chronometer caliber 8906, which is anti-magnetic and certified under the special Master Chronometer standards by METAS. In case you’re wondering, these watches retail for $11,700.
