OMEGA introduced the Seamaster Aqua Terra Collection in 2003, which was inspired the brand's excellent maritime legacy and is known for its distinguished design and innovative technology.
The watch is specifically designed for people who need a dress watch that they can take for a swim if they ever feel like doing so. The 42 mm case is made up of steel. This model features a silver dial decorated with the Teak Concept pattern and reddish gold-colored hands. The timepiece has a brown leather strap which goes well with the stainless steel case.
- The timepiece features a date display at the 3 o’clock position.
- It is water resistant up to 150 meters.
- OMEGA owes a large part of its watchmaking excellence to the quality of its movements and this watch comes with an automatic movement, the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8500.
- The watch has been equipped with a scratch resistant sapphire crystal for added protection and durability.
Greg Norman, one of the greatest golfers of all times, has been endorsing OMEGA timepieces since 2010. He has contributed substantially to the game’s status as a truly global sport. Sergio Garcia, nicknamed “El Niño”, has also been endoring the brand since a long time. With his strong ambition, competitive spirit and faith in his own capabilities, he reflects many of OMEGA’s values.
Launched in the year 1948, the Omega Seamaster Collection was inspired by the waterproof watches made toward the end of World War II for the British military. The watches in this collection have acclaimed worldwide fame due to their combination of exceptional stability and awe-inspiring designs. These watches are ideal for serious underwater sports and adventures.
This collection features several amazing series under it. First introduced in 1957, the Seamaster 300 Master Co-axial features the same dark dial, symmetrical case, big numbers and hands, and lighter indexes like its predecessor. The Planet Ocean 600M Collection showcases several watches with stunning designs and exclusive Co-axial movements. The Aqua Terra 150M Gents’ collection is easily recognizable because of its “Teak Concept” pattern on the dials. The Seamaster Aqua Terra Ladies’ Collection was the first to be equipped with the cutting-edge anti-magnetic Omega Master Co-Axial calibres. Available in lacquered black or blue dials, the Diver 300M Collection showcase white skeletonized hour and minute hands. The Ploprof 1200M is equipped with Co-axial caliber 8500 and is water-resistant up to 1200 meters. The winding crown located at the 12 o’clock position, surrounded by the two chronograph pushers at its sides; give the Bullhead collection its unique name.
In the James Bond movies since the release of GoldenEye in 1995, the character has consistently worn an Omega Seamaster. The Omega brand ambassador, Michael Phelps, an Olympic swimmer and multiple times gold medallist, wears the Seamaster Planet Ocean.

As you'd see from my previous reviews, all watches have been personal favorites for me at one time or another, and have had limited liking from my family or friends, other than the brand image and more expensive=better equation that most people have. This one, no, this one is universally liked by everybody.
Almost all watches are available, now, with Omega's Si spring. That means longer service intervals, and I think is the only movement boasting of a 4 year warranty.
This watch basically defines the balance between interesting, bling, being not too fat not too large(diameter). The problem with the older Aqua Terra was the notoriously troublesome 2500c movement which has required a particularly careful predicament to ensue wearing this.
On an all rounded watch, a screw down crown isn't what one would like as it is always a pain to wind and usually strips the thread but the timeless design and the usable 150m water resistance makes up for it. The Blue is the one I would go for, a.l.a the Bond look in the latest movie, albeit he was wearing the smaller 39mm version. The blue, to me, is the right balance between the White gold indices and the 'Teak' finish on the dial. The indices are applied and have a satin white shine on them. I couldn't make out it was white gold until I read about it. Usually I refrain from using any precious metals on my daily wear, but since the case is steel, the combination is just perfect so I can't ever scratch the hands.
The dial is what mesmerizes on this watch. It has a certain depth, a certain character to it. you need to see it to make out. The hands are really something beautiful. There's something about the harpoon. The bracelet, like most Omegas, is absolute bliss. One can never get tired of wearing it, it's that comfortable. Just one grain down from Planet Ocean / Seamaster Bond. That said, I appreciate the engineering that went into making the bracelet but it looks generic, for a lack of better words, although, this watch is turning out to be iconic. It is all-brushed, excepting the ends of all links. Brushed logs add to the utilitarian go-getter nature. There is a ceramic bearing inside for safety that latches up the bracelet so the thing won't fall off your wrist.
The movement. Is. The. Watch. Omega's all in-house movement has me awed. First, the GMT-esque independent 12 hour hand makes time zone shifting a reward for buying this. The co-axial, which is the brand that Omega uses to market all its automatics these days, is nothing short of revolutionary. Basically, the escapement has reduced friction causing less wear & tear, almost nil lubrication on the escapement making the movement more stable.
On this watch, though, there's the double barrel mainspring. Two springs = more power reserve, you think? Well, yes. And no, this wasn't the only thing though of by the R&D. The design is made such so there is better throughput and stable rotation through various states and speed of wind. essentially, it means that you'd get a more consistent time through times of low power reserve. The beryllium free balance wheels offer a better (read:tighter) control of difference in temperature and the rotor sitting and sliding on Zirconium oxide bearings makes it totally noise-free. You would be extremely hard pressed to hear the rotor wind up when moving. Try it in a silent room!
The balance is free sprung, as you would get with other luxury watch brands. The silicon (SI-14) hairspring is said to have much more resistance to temperature and magnetism as compared to their older anachron HS,
In the end, this is a hit below the belt. To Rolex. For their Datejust. The accuracy is better, better in 5 positions, 4 second regulation, in-house charm, better power reserve, Aesthetics and brand value are purely subjective. I could spend all day comparing these to A grand Seiko or a Master Control but that isn;t what this review is for.
In summary, after I have played around with my friends' for almost a month, my next watch.
