The ocean heaves and swirls with every shade of blue and green. It seems fitting then that Omega has expanded its Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M collection to include two new watches in these hues.
A versatile collection
Omega’s Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M collection has long enjoyed a diverse selection of dials and bracelets that suit a variety of occasions. In this case, the blue and green dials of the latest Aqua Terra 150M timepieces have brushed sunburst textures to accurately reflect the collection’s nautical heritage. These seafaring colours are delivered in a horizontal “teak” pattern, as inspired by the wooden decks of luxury sailboats. Size-wise, the new timepieces clock in at 41 millimetres like their predecessors. Visibility is a non-issue with the lumed hands and hour markers. Meanwhile, a date window at six o’clock confers a sense of symmetry to the dial and contributes towards the watch’s balanced aesthetic.
As its name declares, the Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M is water-resistant to up to 150 metres. Not exactly the go-to for scuba diving, but it will certainly hold up to a casual splash in the pool.
Omega’s Co-axial achievement
Powering the Seamaster Aqua Tera 150M is Omega’s Calibre 8900, which is based on the manufacture’s first in-house co-axial movement. Omega’s co-axial movements feature a free-sprung balance with a silicon balance spring for better positional precision and shock resistance respectively. In this instance, the Calibre 8900 comes with a Master Chronometer certification from COSC and METAS. Additionally, the movement is resistant to magnetic fields exceeding 15,000 gauss. Also featured is a quick-set function, which allows the wearer to rapidly adjust the date and time in convenient one-hour jumps. Finally, a finishing touch comes in the form of a rhodium-plated bi-directional rotor and bridges with arabesque Geneva waves.
The two new dials have given rise to four new references. Both the blue and green Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M come with a steel bracelet with polished centre links. They can also be paired with matching leather straps as an alternative. This expanded palette adds to the collection’s enduring appeal, and ensures there is something for everyone.
