Eye-catching design, astonishing style and the brand’s best technology put the Seamaster Aqua Terra Chronograph in the foreground of the latest Omega products. The everlasting sporty elegance of Aqua Terra watches is perfect for every occasion, both on land (terra) and on the open sea (aqua).
Every watchmaker with a glorious history seeks for some serious refreshments from time to time. With the Aqua Terra line, Omega definitely got something big for today and for the future as well. Aqua Terra Chronometer (read our review) with pure elegance grew into a stylish sport chronograph which boldly appearance has become a hit among all true watch aficionados.
The trademark of all Aqua Terra watches is the “Teak Concept” dial, featuring an authentically designed pattern which remains on the wooden decks of luxury boats. Vertical lines and nicely polished hour markers make the dial highly clear, deep and legible. Three chronograph sub-dials are especially easy to read and this is another great quality of the line which is nicely designed and functional at the same tame. Central hour, minute and chronograph hands are crafted in diamond polished 18 Ct gold and covered with white Super-LumiNova.
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Men’s Chronograph is powered by the in-house Caliber 3313. This self-winding movement incorporates a column wheel and a Co-Axial Escapement, which provides great precision, durability and stability. It is the Officially Certified Chronometer which guarantees a solid power-reserve of 52 hours (when not worn).
The Caliber 3313 features three-chronograph functions – a small seconds counter is located at the 9 o’clock position, the 30-minute chronograph is at the 3 o’clock position, while the 12-hour counter takes the 6 o’clock position. A date window is at the 4:30 o’clock position.
Robustness and Luxury
The robust 44mm case, complemented with a smooth polished bezel is either made of stainless steel, red or white gold or a nice blend of steel and red gold. There are 14 variations of the Seamaster Aqua Terra Chronograph. They are based on different combinations of case and bracelet materials (leather, steel, white gold, red gold, steel-gold) and dial colors (teak-grey, laquered black or ivory).
It is a very different task to choose one, but we are picking the model 126.96.36.199.01.001, as a watch that presents a perfect mixture of elegance and luxury. Its stylish black crocodile strap nicely matches the laquered black dial and makes an aesthetic contrast with the beautifully polished white gold case.
Every Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Chronograph is water-proof up to 150 meters (500 feet) and covered with a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. As the Official timekeeper of the upcoming 2012 London Olympic Games, Omega launched the Special Edition of this model – Seamaster Aqua Terra 44 London Chronograph (read our review).
