【basel 2017】 Subtle Details Transform Omega Aqua Terra 150

Omega Aquamar series of marine hippocampus is based on the marine spirit, coupled with the brand’s exquisite watchmaking effort, is a very practical and unique style. In the new Master Observatory watch series, some of the key features that have been welcomed by the market have been improved or slightly changed, adding stylish styles and new shapes to 38mm and 41mm models.

Aqua Terra 150 launched in 2017, OMEGA launched two watch diameter sizes simultaneously, with different case materials or face plate colors, providing a variety of market choices

The 2017 version of the Aqua Terra watch has a slightly different case than the previous version. It has been rebuilt with a new symmetrical design to create a balanced aesthetic. This concept extends to the date window on the faceplate, moving it from the past 3 o’clock position to the 6 o’clock position, inheriting the design of the first Omega watch with a date window in 1952.

In addition to adjusting the line of the case, the most obvious changes come from the face plate. For example, the deck pattern is changed to a horizontal shape, the date display is moved to 6 o’clock, etc., which are different from the previous work.

Omega has also moved the previous version of the words Water-resistance to the case back at six o’clock, making the face plate of the new Aqua Terra 150 meter watch more refreshing and simple. In addition, the crown of the watch debuts in a new conical shape, inspired by the wavy edge design of the case back, giving the overall shape a icing on the cake. In addition to the above changes, the famous ‘deck pattern’ face plate of the Aqua Terra 150 meter watch was originally derived from the deck wood grain of luxury yachts, which is also a key feature of this watch. The new version subverts our impression once again, changing the vertical lines of previous models to a horizontal design.

Both the 8900 and 8800 calibers equipped with 41mm or 39mm are certified by the Master Observatory. That is to say, in addition to the accuracy of the watch through strict checkpoints, the watch also has outstanding performance in antimagnetic performance

Through the sapphire crystal caseback, you can see the Omega Master Observatory 8900 (41mm) or 8800 (39mm) movement. Both are accredited by the Swiss Federal Institute for Metrology Science (METAS) to achieve the industry’s only standards for accuracy, performance, and antimagnetic up to 15,000 Gauss. Omega has improved the connection between the metal bracelet and the case, which is not only more exquisite in shape, but also fits on the slim wrist. Some models integrate the new rubber strap with stainless steel or 18K Sedna ™ gold links on the watch.
