This year, Omega celebrated the 15th anniversary of its popular Seamaster Aqua Terra Master Chronometer collection with the introduction of multiple new versions. A smart casual take on the professional dive watch, the Aqua Terra series offers a perfect option for everyday wear without compromising on quality. This year’s updates incorporate a number of subtle design tweaks that amount to an overall cleaner looking watch that is sure to appeal to those looking for a nautical-inspired timepiece that is robust yet stylish.
The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150 M Gents’ Collection
The first thing to know is that there are two different case sizes to choose from, 41mm and 38mm, both of which are offered in either full stainless steel or an attractive blend of steel and 18k Sedna gold (Omega’s patented alloy blending gold, copper and palladium). Both also come with several different dial colour variations, so please speak to us to find out what’s available. There is also a full 18k Sedna gold version, however, this only comes in the 41mm case size, and is paired with an attractive silvery dial.
Drawing inspiration from the decks of luxury yachts, the new Seamaster Aqua Terra Master Chronometer models continue the teak motif that defines the watch face of this Omega collection. The twist, however, is that these latest iterations feature horizontal lines across the dial as opposed to the vertical lines seen on the previous models. It’s a subtle change but one that we think has resulted in a more refined appearance overall.
In keeping with the symmetry of the dial, the date window now appears at 6 o’clock rather than 3 o’clock, creating a perfect line straight down the middle. Not only does this further streamline the overall look of the watch, it also pays subtle tribute to the 1952 Automatic Seamaster Calendar — the first ever Omega watch to feature a date display visible through an aperture in the dial (which was also located at 6 o’clock).
This desire to make the new Seamaster Aqua Terra Master Chronometer collection look cleaner and more refined has also seen Omega remove the water resistance information from the dial and place it on the caseback instead. Now, only the “Co-Axial Master Chronometer” lettering adorns the watch face, just above the date window at 6 o’clock, mirroring the brand’s logo and the collection’s name above.
Although the water resistance details have been removed from the dial, they have in no way been reduced. The words “150m/500ft” are now etched on the wave-edged ring that secures the Aqua Terra’s sapphire crystal caseback. Through this sapphire porthole, wearers can admire the inner workings of either the calibre 8900 (in the 41mm models) or the calibre 8800 (in the 38mm model).
Both movements are equipped with Omega’s famed Co-Axial escapement and both are Certified as Master Chronometer calibres by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). Incredibly, these movements remain unaffected by exposure to strong magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss, and guarantee unparalleled precision and reliability.
A top choice for a daily partner on the wrist, Omega’s Seamaster Aqua Terra Master Chronometer offers style as well as substance, not to mention excellent value for money, especially given their exceptional watchmaking heritage.
