The new Seamaster Aqua Terra collection from OMEGA

A wide selection of new Aqua Terra models has been produced for 2017. Updated both inside and out, OMEGA has transformed the design to give each timepiece an added edge of style and a refreshing new look.

Gents’ Collection

OMEGA’s Seamaster Aqua Terra has always provided the perfect balance between sophistication and ocean spirit. In this new collection, some of the most popular features have been enhanced or subtly transformed. The most notable changes include the teak pattern on the dial which now runs horizontally, as opposed to vertically, as well as the cleaner aesthetics and the symmetrical case. Certified as Master Chronometers, the collection also takes the Aqua Terra to new heights of precision and performance.

  • 41 mm or 38 mm
  • A new symmetrical case design for a beautifully balanced look.
  • New conical crown.
  • The famous teak pattern on the dial now runs horizontally, as opposed to vertically.
  • A cleaner dial, with the “water-resistance” indication now moved to the caseback.
  • To maximise symmetry, the date window has been moved from 3 to 6 o’clock.
  • Some 41 mm models feature a rubber strap, new to the Aqua Terra, which is integrated to the case by an additional stainless steel or 18K Sedna™ gold link.
  • Metal bracelets have also been redesigned to achieve a better integration with the case. This suits wearers with slimmer wrists. They also include hardened links and a patented screw and pin system.
  • New wave pattern on the caseback.
  • Driven by the Master Chronometer calibre 8900 / 8901 (41 mm) or 8800 (38 mm), all certified at the industry’s highest standard for precision, performance and magnetic resistance.

Ladies’ Collection

This year, the Seamaster Aqua Terra Ladies’ Collection features 30 new models in three different sizes. Even within the refined cases, OMEGA has managed to give the timepieces several design twists and, in most models, a Master Chronometer upgrade that offers impressive levels of precision and performance.

The clean and crisp dials feature mother-of-pearl and 14 different colours, and the symmetrical cases have been redesigned to achieve a seamless integration with the feminine-styled bracelet.

  • 38 mm or 34 mm
  • A new symmetrical case design for a beautifully balanced look.
  • Selected models include a diamond-paved bezel.
  • New conical crown.
  • A range of different dials, including mother-of-pearl, glossy or shimmer effect.
  • A cleaner dial, with the “water-resistance” indication now moved to the caseback.
  • All models come with diamond indexes.
  • To maximise symmetry, the date window has been moved from 3 to 6 o’clock.
  • Bracelets, with hardened steel, have been redesigned to be more feminine and to achieve a better integration with the case. This suits wearers with slimmer wrists.
  • Bracelets include a new clasp for added comfort.
  • New wave pattern on the caseback.
  • Driven by the Master Chronometer calibre 8800 / 8801, certified at the industry’s highest standard for precision, performance and magnetic resistance.

The Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer Master Chronometer Limited Edition

Ever since its foundation in 1848, OMEGA has distinguished itself with exquisite and ingenious watchmaking. This year, the Swiss brand is proudly presenting its first Worldtimer – another proud example of craftsmanship at its finest.

The true beauty of this new Seamaster Aqua Terra watch can be found in the dial. The exterior section is sand-blasted platinum-gold and features 18K yellow gold indexes and hands that are coated in Super-LumiNova. There is also a circle of global destinations printed in red (GMT), black (+1h in summer) or blue (places without daylight savings). For a special touch, these destinations include the city of Bienne at GMT+1, OMEGA’s home in Switzerland.

In vibrant colour, there is also a sapphire crystal central dial with a hand-crafted enamel world map. This exquisite view over the North Pole is surrounded by a 24-hour indication.

The 43 mm symmetrical case is made from platinum-gold and includes a mix of polished and brushed surfaces. On the reverse side, there is a wave-edged design and several engravings including each unique Limited Edition number.

The timepiece is water resistant up to 15 bar (150m / 500ft) and comes presented on a brown leather strap with a platinum-gold foldover clasp.

As well as being exceedingly complex in design, the Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer has the special distinction of being a Master Chronometer. This means that the watch and its calibre 8939 have reached the industry’s highest standard of precision, performance and magnetic resistance as determined by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).

Only 87 editions of this watch have been produced. For owners in all parts of the world, this wonderful timepiece is certain to offer years of pleasure.
