Also known as an albatrossOMEGA: Thongchai Jaidee receives Double Eagle Trophy

The OMEGA Double Eagle Trophy rewards professional golfers for a particularly special feat that can only be achieved with the utmost precision. Representing a score of 3 under par, the Double Eagle is a rare occurrence indeed, since it requires a hole-in-one on a par-4 hole or in two shots on a par-5 hole.

Any professional golfer playing on one of the six major PGA Tours who scores a Double Eagle (also known as an albatross) will be presented with the OMEGA watch that takes its name from this unique achievement: the Constellation Double Eagle chronometer. This prestige timepiece uses Omega's Co-Axial Escapement movement for excellent long-term accuracy and reliability. The Constellation Double Eagle is available in two different chronometer sizes or as a sporty chronograph version, all available in a choice of steel and two-tone steel and gold versions with three different dial colors. On 9th May, Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee scored a double eagle during the final round of the 2004 Daily Telegraph Damovo British Masters on the par five 17th at the Marriot Forest of Arden.

Each "Double Eagle Trophy" is personalized with the golfer's name engraved on the watch's self-winding rotor, which is visible behind a transparent sapphire-crystal case back. Since the introduction of the Double Eagle Trophy at the OMEGA European Masters in September 2003, the following golfers have seen their brilliant shots rewarded with the Double Eagle watch.
