Omega Introduces the Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial GMT Chronograph
When OMEGA’s new Seamaster Aqua Terra collection was launched in 2008, it was enthusiastically embraced by watch aficionados for its blend of eye-catching design excellence and innovating watchmaking technology.
OMEGA now introduces the newest member of the family, the Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial GMT Chronograph.
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial GMT
Like the rest of the collection, it has particularly striking design feature: its “Teak Concept” dial has vertical lines which are reminiscent of the wooden decks on luxury boats. The Aqua Terra Co-Axial GMT Chronograph’s luxury-finished movement combines OMEGA’s exclusive Co-Axial calibre 3603 and a free sprung balance for outstanding long-term performance. Its precision is confirmed by its COSC-certification as a chronometer. The self-winding watch is also equipped with a column-wheel chronograph mechanism.
The watch’s GMT hand, which makes one complete rotation in 24 hours, is ideally suited for people who travel frequently between time zones or who, doing business internationally, need to know what time it is another part of the world.
The Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial Chronograph GMT is available either in 18 Ct red gold or in stainless steel. The red gold model comes with a choice of a matching 18 Ct red gold bracelet with OMEGA’s patented screw-and pin system and a safety clasp or with a brown alligator strap integrated in the case. The stainless steel watch is delivered either with a black “soft-touch” integrated alligator strap or with a screw-and-pin bracelet in stainless steel.
The Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial Chronograph GMT is available either in 18 Ct red gold or in stainless steel.
The polished, brushed 44 mm case is water resistant to 150 metres (500 feet). Its bi-directional rotating GMT bezel in either 18 Ct red gold or stainless steel is mounted with a ring coated with black PVD and scaled to 24 hours, which allows the tracking of three separate time zones. The matt polished screw-in crown is embossed with a polished OMEGA logo and the case features polished chronograph pushers. The Aqua Terra Co-Axial Chronograph GMT has a domed, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides, as well as a polished screw-in caseback whose sapphire crystal makes it possible to see the Co-Axial movement at work.
The 18 Ct red gold model features a teak-grey dial, sun-brushed from the center, with black sub-dials. The stainless steel edition’s dial is vertically-brushed teak-grey with black sub-dials. It has central hour, minute, GMT and chronograph seconds hands and a small seconds counter at 9H. The other sub-dials are the 30-minute recorder at 3H and the 12-hour recorder at 6H.
The facetted hour, minute and GMT hands are made of 18 Ct gold and coated with white Super-LumiNova. The GMT hand is tipped with a red arrow. The dial also has applied 18 Ct gold indexes with diamond-polished sides which are coated with white Super-LumiNova. The OMEGA name and logo on the dial are also diamond-brushed applied 18 Ct gold.
While the Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial GMT Chronograph might recall the distinctive design features and relaxed pace of life on luxury boats, with its chronograph function and GMT hand, it perfectly complements any busy contemporary lifestyle.
