SEAMASTER AQUA TERRA WORLDTIMER CHRONOMETER
TRAVELLING FIRST CLASS
For the 15th anniversary of the Aqua Terra collection, Omega has launched a luxury watch for demanding travellers, including a world-time complication.
The first watch by Omega with a world-time complication has taken shape in a limited edition of just 87 pieces. The Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer Chronometer shows the time in major international cities in the 24 time zones using a specific colour code. London, in red, represents GMT. Cities that change to daylight saving time are in red and those using standard time all the year round are shown in blue. Around a hand-enamelled, coloured globe over a sapphire crystal, a two-colour revolving ring shows the time in the different cities. The time is set very easy using the crown.
In the 43mm-wide platinum case, which is water-resistant down to 150m, the Calibre 8939 is hard at work, with accuracy certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). This is a mechanism combining robustness and precision. The presence of a silicon spiral means the watch is unaffected by magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss. The automatic calibre includes the brand’s latest innovations and generates a healthy power reserve of 60 hours. Turning the watch over, you can see a bi-directional rotor with an arabesque Geneva Wave pattern through the sapphire glass.
The Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer Chronometer comes with a brown leather strap and a platinum folding clasp. Like all recent Omega watches, it has a 5-year guarantee.
