Ladies Watch of the Week: Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Ladies Watch

Omega News & Releases

The Seamaster collection from Omega has always represented one of the most desirable collections for luxury horological enthusiasts to possess. Rich in maritime heritage, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra ladies watch family was one of the very first assortments of mechanical watch models to begin to display the renowned Omega Co-Axial calibre 8520/8521 escapement. They also represented one of the initial collections to house a SI-14 silicon balance spring, meaning that the superb performance of these timepieces is only equalled by their commitment to innovation.

Produced since 1947, the iconic Seamaster has been carefully downsized in order to create a timepiece that is consummately designed for a feminine wrist. The dial of the Seamaster Aqua Terra was originally an invariably smoothly fashioned feature, but on this teak-grey version a finely engraved pattern of parallel ridges has been added, visually associating the watch with the deck of an opulent sailboat. Other notable features include the raised edgings of the date display, and the painstakingly double faceted hands that confirm the brand’s dedication to intricate detailing.

All numerals on the dial conform to a stylish two digit variety, allowing the overall aesthetic of the watch face to be pleasingly understated. However this modesty certainly does not disclose a lack of quality, as the alternating polished and satin finishes on the case cause it to radiate a considerable amount of panache, and the self locking crown means that water pressures of up to 150 metres can be comfortably resisted. The small size of the wristwatch comfortably allows it to easily adhere to the wrist and be discretely worn, whilst the timeless nature of the wristwatch will still attract the eye when given the opportunity.

Attention to detail is present upon every inch of the Seamaster Terra Aqua, and the satin finished bracelet, with its double folding clasp, is an eminently functional work of art. The domed sapphire crystal of the wristwatch has also been scratch proofed, with anti reflective treatment applied to each side of the crystal surface in order to better prevent unsightly reflections from obscuring the dial. Each hour is clearly marked with a triangular indicator; a choice of shape that is certainly in keeping with the many nautical flavours that are present within this watch.

Omega has made its name through the breathtaking craftsmanship of its mechanical watch movements, but they have not entirely restricted themselves to this market. This particular Seamaster Aqua Terra does not possess a mechanical movement, but instead uses a Quartz precision movement to power the timepiece. This movement is plated in a rhodium finish, a rare chemically inert element that ensures that the Omega calibre 4651 continues to function at an optimum level. This movement comes with a power reserve that is equipped for 44 months, as well as a visual indicator that notifies the owner when the extensive battery life of the Seamaster Aqua Terra is coming to an end.

The Seamaster Aqua Terra Ladies watch represents a perfect opportunity to indulge yourself with the classic flair that is inherent within this famous luxury watch family , and this robustly functional, yet graceful timepiece can be yours today on finance for a 10% deposit and 24 monthly payments of £65.62.
