This brand new line in the Seamaster Collection features an eye-catching design and Omega’s breakthrough technology. Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra watches are created to satisfy modern men who want to be stylish and distinctive at the same time.
Distinction comes with the “Teak Concept” – an aesthetically designed dial, with a unique vertical pattern, inspired by the wooden decks on luxury boats. This beautiful face gives the Aqua Terra an advantage over similar hi-quality models (read our reviews of the Rolex Datejust and the Grand Seiko). Raised hour markers with elegant finishes, a minute track that runs over the outer rim, a nicely framed date window at the 3 o’clock position and beautify shaped rhodium-plated hands complete this design masterpiece. White Super-LumiNova coating provides excellent readability.
Earlier Aqua Terra timepieces were powered by the Caliber 2500, which is a modified version of the ETA 2892. New models bring that extra quality by housing the exclusive Omega Co-axial Caliber 8500/8501. A few years after it had been presented for the first time with De Ville Hour Vision watch, as the revolutionary in-house mechanism, this self-winding movement entered the Seamaster Collection.
Its Co-axial escapement provides great stability, accuracy and endurance. It also incorporates a free sprung balance, a balance bridge, a shock absorber and two barrels that increase its power reserve to 60 hours. The highest quality of this mechanism is confirmed with the C.O.S.C. Chronometer certification.
Seven Stylish Variations
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Chronometer has a 41.5 mm case, made of either stainless steel (four variations), or red gold (three variations). In either way, the case features an amazing mixture of polished surfaces and brushed finishes, which gives it a nice stylish look. Depending on a variation, the watch matches an elegant leather strap, or a steel or gold bracelet.
Our choice would definitely be the model 18.104.22.168.06.001 which comes with a steel case, a teak-grey dial and a black leather strap. This beautiful timepiece, with an everlasting elegance is available for around $3,500.
For those who like more luxurious watches, Omega created the Aqua Terra 22.214.171.124.06.001 which presents an aesthetic blend of steel and gold, which is more common for Rolex than for Omega. Hour markers, watch hands and the frame of a date window are also made of gold. You can buy this glamorous piece that comes with the teak-grey dial, for around $6,200.
If you want to spend even more, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Chronometer 126.96.36.199.06.001 is waiting for you. You need to pay a little over 20,000 dollars, and this hi-luxury timepiece that features a red gold case and bracelet will become a part of your collection.
A teak-opaline silver dial is also a choice in a combination with a stainless steel case and either a brown leather bracelet (188.8.131.52.02.001), or a steel bracelet (184.108.40.206.02.001). All Aqua Terras are protected with domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystals with anti-reflective treatments and have superb water-resistance up to 250 meters (600 feet). As their names suggest, these astonishing watches are equally attractive and functional on land as they are in water.
