Review: Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Small Seconds

Following the launch by Omega of the 2021 Seamaster Aqua Terra Small Seconds collection (our introductory article here), we had the possibility to spend a few days with two of the new models and we are now delighted to share our impressions and live pictures.

Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Small Seconds

In particular, we tested the Aqua Terra 150M Co-Axial Master Chronometer Small Seconds 41 mm - or more simply the Aqua Terra Small Seconds - in two stainless steel variations: ref. 220.10.41.21.02.004 with a steel bracelet and ref. 220.12.41.21.03.005 featuring a rubber strap integrated with the watch through a solid polished link.

The new Aqua Terra Small Seconds comes in a 41 mm case crafted from 316L stainless steel, chosen by Omega for its excellent anti-corrosion properties and the high lustre that can be achieved after polishing.  It guarantees water resistance to 150 metres / 200 feet.

Two signature details are the twisted lugs and the conical crown inspired by the wave-edge design found on the caseback. The beautiful lines of the case are highlighted by the alternation of satin brushed and  polished surfaces.

Framed by polished bezels and protected by domed scratch‑resistant sapphire crystal with anti‑reflective treatment on both sides, the new dials of the Aqua Terra Small Seconds are characterised by two contrasting tones and the horizontal “teak” pattern inspired by the wooden decks of luxury sailboats, a proper tribute to the maritime heritage of the entire Seamaster family.

At 6 o'clock, we find a completely new small seconds subdial, in contrast with the background, that also includes the trapezoidal date aperture.

The raised Omega logo, the applied hour markers and the sculpted hour and minute hands accentuate the impression of depth. Markers and hands are filled with white Super-LumiNova emitting a blue glow in the dark.

Presented with a polished and satin-brushed three-link steel bracelet with a triple folding clasp, the first model sports a brushed silvery and blue dial with blued hands and markers.

The other version comes with a structured blue rubber strap with grey stitching that is secured to the wrist by a double folding clasp. It features a sun-brushed blue and grey dial with rhodium-plated hands and markers.

The sapphire-crystal caseback displays the Omega’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8916, beautifully decorated with Geneva waves in arabesque.

In order to be certified as Master Chronometer by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), the finished watches - not just the movement - are tested for their precision, during and after exposure to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 Gauss, for autonomy and for water resistance. The exceptional performance in terms of resistance to magnetic fields is possible thanks to the free sprung-balance with silicon balance spring equipping the movements.

Thanks to the two barrels mounted in series, this state-of-the-art self-winding 3.5 Hz (25,200 vibrations per hour) movement offers an autonomy of 60 hours.

A versatile timepiece that can be worn in any daily situation, the new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Small Seconds combines an attractive look with flawless finishes and a state-of-the-art movement that guarantees the highest accuracy and reliability.
