Aqua Terra is a sophisticated collection from Omega. And, therefore, Aqua Terra watches are perfect for formal occasions, be it black-tie events or board meetings.
The Omega trend of launching ten watches (take, for example, last year’s variants) for each version continues. The new 34 mm stainless steel version of the 2023 Aqua Terra collection features a round, white-background date window at 6 o’clock while the 38 mm stainless steel version gets a trapezoidal, white-background date window at 6 o’clock. The latest collection offers variants in gold as well.
The five-piece 34 mm collection gets 18 ct white gold for hour, minute, and second hands and sailboat hull-shaped hour markers. As far as the five 38 mm models are concerned, Omega has crafted the dials with traditional rhodium-plating for the hour, minute and second hands and the trapezoidal hour markers.
The highlight of the collection: the ocean-to-Earth colour spectrum. The 34 mm watches sport dials in Sea Blue, Lagoon Green, Sandstone, Shell Pink and Lavender colours. The 38 mm versions dazzle in Atlantic Blue, Bay Green, Sandstone and Saffron, and Terracotta.
These models are run by Calibre 8800 with a 55-hour power reserve. This is the same movement that powered the 2022 Aqua Terra collection. The latest watches come with stainless steel bracelets with foldovers. Turning the watches over will reveal the sapphire skeleton casebacks with stainless steel oscillating weights.
Now, let’s look at the gold variants. The 34 mm version is made with 18 ct Moonshine™ Gold – Omega’s own yellow gold alloy, known for its pale tones and high resistance to fading. The sun-brushed and lacquered dial is CVD-treated and presented in lagoon green, featuring an applied circular date window in 18 ct Moonshine™ Gold, sailboat indexes and silver-coloured transfers. This model is set on a shimmering leather strap in pine green. Turning this model reveals the sapphire skeleton caseback with gold-an 18 ct Moonshine™ Gold oscillating weight.
The 38 mm version is made of 18 ct Sedna™ Gold – Omega’s own red gold alloy, known for its warm tones and high resistance to fading. Along with a bezel paved in 46 diamonds, the sun-brushed and lacquered dial is CVD-treated and presented in a sandstone colour, featuring an applied circular date window at 6 o’clock in 18 ct SednaTM Gold. There are sailboat-shaped hour markers and grey-coloured transfers. The watch is finished on an 18 ct Sedna™ gold bracelet, thus ensuring a monochromatic look.
These two gold versions are run by Omega’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8801 that offers a power reserve of 55 hours. Turning the 38mm model reveals the 18 ct Sedna™ Gold oscillating weight and a sapphire skeleton caseback.
