In 2002, Omega introduced a bold new range of timepieces to its famous Seamaster family. With 40 models offered in four different sizes (41mm, 38mm, 35mm and 28mm), the first Aqua Terra line delivered a “refreshing contrast” of style and innovation that could easily fit an active lifestyle. The minimalist design worked perfectly for business days, and social nights yet the watches remained 100 percent Seamaster at their core, with a performance that was backed by anti-shock technology and 150m/500ft water resistance.
Omega’s Seamaster Aqua Terra has always provided the perfect balance between sophistication and ocean spirit. In its 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. 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 into the case by an additional stainless steel or 18K Sedna™ gold link. And the metal bracelets have also been redesigned to achieve a better integration with the case.
