Take Style Inspiration From Your Favourite Sport
If there’s one thing that golfers from Team USA and Team Europe have in common, it’s their love of luxury watches.
With Team Europe emerging victorious in this year’s Ryder Cup, interest in golf in the UK is at an all-time high. Whether you’re tempted to hit the golf course or not, you can take some style inspiration from this year’s tournament. No, we’re not just talking about polo shirts or sweater vests, but luxury watches too. Golfers from both Team Europe and Team USA sported some beautiful timepieces during the Ryder Cup. If you want to follow suit, here are some of the watches to look out for.
Tiger Woods, Rolex
Tiger Woods is enjoying something of a career resurgence, so it’s only fair that we kick things off with his choice of watch. As befitting the most well known golfer in the world, Woods wears a Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea. Rolex are still regarded by many as the leading designer of luxury watches, and the Sea-Dweller is timeless, stylish and a great investment piece that will give you years of wear. If it’s good enough for Tiger, it’s certainly good enough for us mere mortals!
Tommy Fleetwood, Omega
Tommy Fleetwood has been one of the sport’s most recent breakout stars, and he’s certainly making the most of his earnings. He has been spotted wearing an Omega watch – the Seamaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer to be precise. Omega are one of the most in-demand brands at the moment, and we couldn’t think of a better watch to start a collection with. Taking inspiration from luxury sail boats, this watch is a fitting nod to the brand’s rich maritime heritage.
Justin Rose, Hublot
Justin Rose has done it all in his career, picking up big titles and an Olympic gold medal. So it makes sense that he favours Hublot, a brand with real history and prestige. He was recently seen wearing a Big Bang model – and this is a watch that has serious style credentials. Created by visionary Jean-Claude Biver, the Big Bang combines classic watchmaking techniques with modern, cutting edge design. Thanks to this, it’s become Hublot’s flagship watch.
Buying your own
Hublot, Omega and Rolex are three very different luxury watch brands, but they are all underpinned by an emphasis on bold design and quality craftsmanship. Whether you treat yourself to the exact model worn by your favourite golfer or simply opt for a watch by the same brand, Luxe Watches should be your first port of call. With a huge selection of second hand designer watches at great prices, they are fast becoming one of the top watch dealers in the UK. All of their watches come with a guarantee of quality, and you’ll be able to find a payment plan that suits you.
Golf has never been more fashionable!
You don’t have to be a great golfer to take some style inspiration from them. Gone are the days when golf wear was deemed unfashionable – now men are keen to recreate the looks of golfers past and present. A luxury watch is something that you will be able to sport anywhere, whether it’s at the office, a party or on the putting green. So why not splash out on a timepiece you’ll be able to wear for years to come?
