Everything we love about the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer.
When it was first released several years ago, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer quickly rose to global success and popularity. Offering a sports-watch approach to classic complications, there’s something about the timepiece — perhaps the exquisite craftsmanship and careful attention to detail — that comes across as a slight surprise for Omega, while at the same time maintaining the brand’s rep for impressive technology. Following the original run, Omega is back with a new release Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer, featuring remarkable design advancements and new features. Here are a few reasons to love it.
The Classic Aqua Terra Style
Reminiscent of the style found in Omega’s core Aqua Terra collection, the timepiece comes complete with a 43mm brushed and polished case, carefully crafted from stainless steel. Solid polished ink integrates the case onto the watch’s blue rubber strap, for a seamless design experience that is so very Aqua Terra.
Global Destinations on the Outer Dial
In sunbrushed-blue, the timepiece’s dial comes complete with Aqua Terra’s vertical teak stripes, as well as a newly introduced inner ring. What we noticed first, however, is the circle of global destinations surrounding the dial. As a special touch, the city of Bienne is included at GMT+1 — a significant nod to Omega fans, as Bienne represents the home of Omega’s headquarters, and is also where its parent company Swatch Group is based.
Indications of Night and Day
Moving away from the outer dial, we see at the center, a 24-hour hesalite crystal ring. Split into two halves, the light blue offers an indication of daytime, while dark blue alludes to nightfall.
Omega’s Vision of Planet Earth
Through the timepiece, Omega has created its own vision of planet Earth, using a grade 5 titanium plate. Laser-ablated to recreate the ocean, striking blue sea meets with the relief of continents, to represent a view of the Earth looking down over the North Pole. Fun fact: the contrasting colours seen on the Earth’s surface aren’t artificially created, but are in fat naturally obtained by chemical reactions to the laser.
The Movement (and the Strap!)
Inside, Omega enthusiasts will be happy to know that the Worldtimer is driven by none other than the Master Chronometer Calibre 8938. What’s also interesting to take note of, is that the watch’s blue rubber strap has been given a little upgrade, now coming with a quilted texture, contrasted by light blue stitching.
Omega’s Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer is priced at THB308,000. To find out more, visit omegawatches.com.
