As the name suggests, Aqua Terra is all about versatility. An Omega timepiece designed for adventurous individuals equally at ease in the central city as they are in the middle of the ocean. In keeping with the lifestyle of its intended wearers, the Swiss brand has taken the Aqua Terra into exciting new territory, by introducing a seconds hand that’s an absolute first. The 2021 collection consists of ten 38mm models, two of which are luxury editions; as well as nine new 41mm models, including four luxury versions.
The standout feature on all new models is a small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock, encircled by an applied subdial ring: many in 18K Sedna™ gold – some even set with diamonds. The collection features new dials in subtle sun-brushed shades and two-tone teak patterns with eye-catching hour markers, including diamonds arranged incrementally from 6 to 12 o’clock and sailboat hull-shaped indexes with iridescent mother-of-pearl inlay. To fix the new watches firmly to the wrist there are bracelets in matching metals, rubber straps in beige and blue – and leather straps in red, burgundy, beige and green. Of the four mighty movements driving the Small Seconds watches, there are two luxury calibers (8803/8917), each distinguished by an 18K Sedna™ gold rotor and balance-bridge.
At the sportier end of the 38 mm spectrum are eight watches in either stainless steel, or a blend of steel and 18K Sedna™ gold, powered by Omega’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer caliber 8802, with new dials in dark green, light green, linen and extra white mother-of-pearl. The latest 38 mm Omega’s sport matching bracelets or beautifully colored leather straps, depending on the model. For lovers of luxury there are also two 18K Sedna™ gold models with diamond-set bezels, powered by Omega’s exquisite Co-Axial Master Chronometer caliber 8803 with 18K Sedna™ gold rotor and balance-bridge. Fans can choose an Aqua Terra with purple jade dial and 18K Sedna™ gold bracelet, or a model with extra white mother-of-pearl dial and red leather strap.
The 41 mm range includes four stainless steel editions and one in stainless steel and 18K Sedna™ gold, all powered by Omega’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer caliber 8916. Two-tone dials in blue-grey, silvery-blue and silvery-beige, add depth to the displays and contrast beautifully with the new subdials. Watches are fitted with either a matching bracelet, or an integrated structured rubber strap in a complementary color. The larger-sized editions also include four models in 18K Sedna™ gold, all powered by a movement as luxurious as the watch’s exterior: Omega’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer caliber 8917. Aqua Terra aficionados can select either a two-tone blue-grey dial, or a two-tone silvery beige dial. Both options come with a choice of matching bracelet or integrated rubber strap.
In addition to enjoying a new way to track the seconds, Aqua Terra owners can be sure their new Omega will perform perfectly every hour of the day. Each watch comes with a 5-year warranty and Master Chronometer certification card, ensuring that the watch has passed the tests certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).
