Omega redesigned its Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M Gents' Collection powering it with Master Chronometers calibres, i.e. Omega movements which have reached the highest level of precision, performance and magnetic resistance as approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).
The new timepieces have been reshaped with a new symmetrical design that looks even more balanced than before. Modelled after the decks of luxury yachts, the teak dial of the Aqua Terra 150M is one of the watch’s most defining features. For this collection, the lines now run horizontally, as opposed to vertically, as they have done on previous models.
The date window has been moved from 3 to 6 o'clock, just like the very first Omega watch with a date window which was released in 1952.
To have cleaner and simpler dials, Omega has taken away the “water-resistance” wording and engraved it on the caseback instead. A new conical crown completes the makeover, inspired by the wave-edge design found on the caseback.
Available in stainless steel, 18K Sedna gold or a mixture of both, the 41 mm can be combined to black, brown, blue, grey or silvery dials and a diverse selection of bracelets and straps, including steel, leather and structured rubber.
Through the sapphire-crystal caseback, you can see the Master Chronometer calibre 8900, 8901 or 8800. Resistant to magnetic fields reaching 15,000 gauss, these movements are equipped with a free sprung-balance with silicon balance spring and two barrels mounted in series for a power reserve of 60 hours.
The prices of the new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M models start at around Euro 5,100. omegawatches.com
