While we generally partner Omega with lively watches – with complications that range from the date to the yearly schedule or the chronograph, then again, actually one focal tourbillon watch – complicated watches are not actually a piece of the Biel-based brand’s portfolio. This was until 2017, when Omega presented, as a select restricted release in platinum, a Worldtimer variant of the Seamaster Aqua Terra . This complex watch presently gets back to normal creation, with various releases in steel or in Sedna gold.
In all decency, the principal platinum, 87-piece restricted version of the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer truly came as an amazement. This wasn’t at all what we expected to see from Omega. Notwithstanding that, it must be said that the execution was positively somewhat occupied and extremely very good quality – platinum case, gold markers and hands, hand-created veneer world guide, finished dial and the typical complex showcase of a world clock watch… All in all, this watch was a piece “too much”. The aim was acceptable, the execution was acceptable, yet there was opportunity to get better. What’s more, Omega tuned in. Presenting the normal creation renditions of this Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer.
The new and non-restricted forms of this world clock are as a rule indistinguishable from the 2017 platinum model… However, on account of a couple of changes and changes in materials, it has become more alluring both monetarily and visually.
The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer will be accessible, for the occasion, in 4 editions:
- Steel case, blue dial, blue elastic strap
- Steel case, blue dial, steel bracelet
- Sedna gold case, silver dial, gator strap
- Sedna gold case, silver dial, Sedna gold bracelet
The changes for the most part concern the materials and the tones, just as the lash or arm band, which are presently lucid with the remainder of the assortment. In this occasion, there is a coordinated finished elastic lash or crocodile leather with focal metallic pieces between the hauls, or a similar 3-interface arm band as other Seamaster AT watches.
The case holds the 43mm width of the debut platinum model however is presently accessible in tempered steel or in 18k Sedna gold (Omega’s exclusive rose gold composite). The two models can be combined with coordinating metallic arm bands. The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer is an astonishing combination of nautical-motivated themes with a complex showcase, making it by one way or another easygoing with a trace of style. Notwithstanding the huge extents, the watch sits comfortably on the wrist.
The world guide portrayed in the middle has additionally advanced. The dial is composed of three distinct territories. First is the external segment, with applied hour files and a sun-brushed blue or silver foundation that incorporates the Aqua Terra’s vertical teak stripes. The dial is encircled by an inward spine of worldwide objections and, for an extraordinary touch, these incorporate the city of Bienne at GMT+1, Omega’s hometown.
The second area is a 24-hour ring, which is made of hesalite precious stone. The light blue half demonstrates daytime, while the dim blue half shows night. At long last, the focal part is, as often with world clocks, a world guide. It is produced using an evaluation 5 titanium plate. This has been laser-removed to make the blue sea, leaving an alleviation of the landmasses. The differentiating shades of the Earth’s surface are gotten normally by the laser’s compound response. The presentation, other than the world time and day/night signs, additionally incorporates hours, minutes, seconds and date.
The whole showcase is constrained by the crown (no pushers or recessed catches in the caseband) and is fueled by the type 8938 (steel model) or the type 8939 (gold model). In view of the 89xx arrangement, this development includes a twin-barrel design for a more extended force hold (60 hours) and a more steady conveyance of the force. The co-hub escapement is, obviously, important for the bundle. It is a Master Chronometer development, implying that it’s chronometer-affirmed by METAS and offers a 15,000-gauss protection from attractive fields. The design is old style for the brand, with arabesque Geneva stripes – note the gold rotor and equilibrium connect on the gold model.
