Omega’s presence in the wristwear world is undeniable. To hear the company’s name uttered throughout the industry — and its discussions on innovative watchmaking — is relatively commonplace. Now, to reinforce the brand’s commitment to genre-defining peripherals, they’ve teamed up with esteemed athlete, Rory Mcllroy, for the release of the Aqua Terra Chronometer “Ultra Light” watch.

This handsome looking accessory is a testament to the company’s innovative mindset and fosters a new, minimalist ideology that reinterprets the conventional sports watch. To create the ultralight variant, Omega has implemented an aeronautic alloy, known as Gamma Titanium, for the first time. The watch’s case, case back, and crown are dressed in the new material, producing an aesthetically-pleasing silhouette that clocks in at just under 55-grams. Aside from the inclusion of materials that are stronger, and lighter than traditional titanium, the Aqua Terra also features a telescopic crown system, In-Play fabric strap, and the company’s first-ever titanium movement — allowing for less friction between the watch’s vital components. But these innovations don’t come cheap, as the sleek and sporty Aqua Terra “Ultra Light” is available now via the brand’s website for $48,600.

Purchase: $48,600
