The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra – Special Golf Edition12:38 pm
Golf has always been considered a gentleman’s game, it is both humbling and challenging and has a fascination of its own! It’s a sport for networking where business deals are often closed on the course. On the green, your timepiece adds to the impression you make – so its only natural to sport an Omega!
Omega, as the official timekeeper of the PGA championship and Ryder Cup, has secured a global presence as an innovative watchmaker in this prestigious sport. It’s a privilege for every sports enthusiast to adorn this updated Seamaster Aqua Terra timepiece that commemorates its growing involvement in the world of golf.
The OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra “Golf”, with its distinctive aesthetics of green, blue and gold on the dial, celebrates the brand’s commitment to promote and sponsor the growth of the game of golf as a global sport. The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra collection was originally innovated on dive watch concepts and has now been relaunched as a formal sports watch officially endorsed by Rory McIlroy himself. Upon closer inspection, the timepiece still maintains its maritime theme – the base of the dial resembles the teak deck of sailboats.
Powered by OMEGA Co-Axial Caliber 8500 Movement
These nautically inspired timepieces feature Omega’s self-winding master co-axial 8500 movement (which can be seen through the transparent caseback) which delivers an outstanding chronometric performance. Moreover, watches from the Aqua Terra Seamaster collection boast of resistance to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss, making them the first anti-magnetic mechanical wristwatches powering the chronometer, and have a 60-hour power reserve. The case can resist upto 150 meters of water pressure, which is quite significant.
This movement also features an annual calendar, which is a useful complication to say the least. The transparent caseback beautifully displays the inner workings of this caliber for watch aficionados.
Even though this watch does not bring any overtly special functionalities to the table, it is a sporty, elegant and luxury timepiece which perfectly complements the world of golf and the style associated with the game. It is without a doubt, an inspired timepiece sporting a superb modern design, an anti-magnetic mechanical movement and a great horological extension to maritime heritage! This line consists of a trio of watches that cater to your individual style. Let us explore these masterpieces:
Aqua Terra Stainless Steel Black Dial- Special Golf Edition
This timepiece features a black dial decorated with the Teak Concept pattern. It is Omega’s official watch for the PGA Tour golf tournament. The watch recalls the verdant courses where golf’s greatest events are contested. Most striking here is the ‘Seamaster’ emblem in green, giving this Aqua Terra wristwatch an appearance that’s truly unique.
The colours on the dial of this timepiece are reminiscent of the green so closely associated with golf – on the minute track around the circumference as well as the central green seconds hand.
The craftsmanship of the case is excellent. Thanks to the white Super-LumiNova coating, the dial is highly readable. The stainless steel 41.5 mm case is presented on a stainless steel bracelet that boasts Omega’s signature screw and pin design. The double-folding clasp gives an elegant appearance on the wrist. On the whole – a sturdy and practical wristwatch to be enjoyed.
Aqua Terra Leather Strap Black Dial”
-Special Golf Edition
For the men who prefer a more snug fit, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra comes in an alternate fastening option in the form of a Barénia® brown leather strap – considered the finest calf leather in the world. The distinctly crafted leather strap is also notable for subtly changing colour over time depending on how often it is used or worn, which makes it look darker.
Aqua Terra White Dial- Special Golf Edition
Another interesting version of the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Golf Edition is the one created for the Ryder Cup held in the United States. This event is one of the most exciting events which pits a team of the best American golfers against their counterparts from overseas in Europe. The players don’t compete for prize money but for the glory of triumph. To honour this incredible tournament, OMEGA created a special edition of the Seamaster Aqua Terra “Golf” with faceted blue hour and minute hands, a yellow gold seconds hand and red transferred design elements.
Set against the silver background of the dial, these colours fashionably represent the Ryder Cup Logo. The 42 mm case is comfortable and sophisticated for your everyday wear to office or a formal event anywhere.
