What we’re looking at today may basically be another dial tone, yet it made a considerable amount of commotion when we presented a little while prior . Different responses here and on our Instagram account caused us to understand that a dial tone can have quite an effect on a watch. So today we investigate, our own live photographs, at the fresh out of the box new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m Master Chronometer with a green dial… And it was absolutely essential, as the inconspicuous (yet difficult to characterize) shade of this dial glances far superior, all things considered, than in official images.
Green isn’t the main shading you may consider for a watch dial. Notwithstanding the unequaled works of art – that are dark and silver/white – blue has been broadly utilized by brands for more than 10 years (recall those “blue is the new black” trademarks all over?) however green remained to some degree neglected in watchmaking, and in light of current circumstances: green isn’t the most effortless of shadings. There are many shades accessible, however not so numerous that function admirably on a dial. Khaki can be utilized in a military watch setting, obviously, yet that was about it. With regards to an easygoing, day by day situated watch, green can be precarious and often difficult to coordinate with the remainder of one’s clothing. Finding the correct harmony among circumspection and inventiveness is key here.
The Seamaster Aqua Terra is Omega’s vision of the day by day extravagance watch, a watch that can be utilized altogether circumstances. As we’ve clarified in this review , it is perhaps the best illustration of the “one-watch collection” accessible. It isn’t a specific watch, similar to a Seamaster Diver 300m or a Speedmaster, it is a watch that can do essentially everything, from enhancing your wrist at a conference to a bounce in the pool at the end of the week. In that capacity, it was dispatched in tactful tones, including dark, blue, dim and white. Exemplary, immortal shades to underscore the model’s polish. Yet, today Omega adds a few (controlled) “extravaganza” to it Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m, with a green dial.
The new shade of the dial is the unrivaled update to this model here, however the tone really changes the watch an incredible arrangement. At the point when we originally saw this variant on the official pictures conveyed by Omega, the green shade seemed somewhat pale, lacking profundity and energy. There’s for sure, the watch must be found in the metal to get a genuine vibe for the tone. The dial of the Seamaster Aqua Terra highlights various examples, from the even notches that bring out the nautical world, to the sunray-brushed complete the process of emanating from the focal point of the dial. The last is significant here as it is answerable for giving the reflections and changes of shading relying upon the encompassing light. For this situation, it brings about a dial that can change from profound dim green – practically dark in specific conditions – to emerald green when direct daylight hits the dial.
If you compare the photograph above (dim backwoods green), or the three photographs underneath with three diverse yet vivacious shades of green, you’ll see that Omega has worked effectively in making green very appealing.
Other than that, we’re looking at similar base as any remaining versions of the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m Master Chronometer. This implies a very much planned and professional 41mm hardened steel case, which combines the mark Omega wound (lyre) drags, cleaned complements (bezel and on the hauls) and compact measurements, because of the short carries, taking into consideration extraordinary comfort on most wrists. The dial holds the exemplary Aqua Terra components, with its teak-like example, the three-sided applied lists and expansive bolt hands, just as a period and-date show with the quantième situated at 6 o’clock for better symmetry.
The Seamaster Aqua Terra is clear, very much ensured and solid (screw-in crown, 150m water-obstruction), it has a bounteous measure of radiant material and, notwithstanding these components, actually has sufficient circumspection and class to be worn as a business watch. This green model is accessible either on a dim green gator lash with collapsing catch or an exemplary 3-interface treated steel wristband, brushed and polished.
Inside the case, we find what is perhaps Omega’s most prominent resource, the in-house type 8900. This programmed development packs the majority of Omega’s advances, which means the Co-Axial escapement, a twofold barrel for a steady 60-hour power hold, silicon parts all around to give outrageous protection from attraction (up to 15,000-gauss) and METAS/Master-Chronometer accreditation, an assurance of the watch’s accuracy and dependability. The development, noticeable through the sapphire caseback, is finished in exemplary Omega style with Arabesque stripes and darkened screws.
