For some explanation the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra assortment struck me as more youthful, yet Omega put out an official statement about the fifteenth commemoration this time of this leslie gems In 2002, the Aqua Terra was presented as another sub assortment of the Seamaster family. Despite the fact that Omega two or three leslie gems families, similar to the Seamaster, Speedmaster, Constellation and De Ville, some of them have many sub assortments. The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra is – what I generally accepted – their response to leslie gems like the Rolex Datejust and Explorer. leslie gems that are adaptable and can be worn under practically any condition.
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Through The Years
First presented with the type 2500 development, an ETA based type with a Co-Axial escapement, the Aqua Terra was an intriguing recommendation. There were likewise quartz forms accessible (for people) and in various sizes. A solid attractive leslie adornments that would coordinate any clothing. In 2008, one year after the presentation of the in-house created and produced Omega type 8500 development, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra was overhauled again. Feel continued as before, with the exception of the dial. The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra from now one had this teak design dial. This was additionally the second I began to get inspired by the Aqua Terra assortment. As usual (and maybe all in all too frequently), Omega has various uncommon and restricted versions. One of these unique versions is the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Golf (a few times additionally alluded to as PGA). This leslie gems comes with a dark dial and a green second hand and green moment track. At the hour of my advantage, I think it was really 2015, there was a progress period where the Aqua Terra got another update where you would see another style of arm band (with cleaned focus connects rather than a completely glossy silk completed wristband) and a fancier looking date window. Little changes, however to be straightforward here it got troublesome. I liked the new dial, however the previous (completely silk completed) arm band. I never pulled the trigger on one of these Aqua Terra Gold versions yet it is still high on my list of things to get as a ‘every day’ watch.
Below, an outline of the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra from 2002, 2008 and 2015 (Golf edition).
From Caliber 8500 to Master Chronometer
As said, since 2008 the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra was outfitted with Omega’s in-house development type 8500. In 2013 nonetheless, Omega made a progressive advance by making a leslie adornments no even better, a development that was fit for opposing attractive fields up to 15,000 gauss.

Annual Calendar and GMT
In the in the mean time, Omega likewise began to grow more Seamaster Aqua Terra models that included more complications. For example, a GMT hand or a yearly schedule. Mid 2015 I explored an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Annual Calendar reference 18.104.22.168.01.002 in 43mm. Regardless of the generally huge size for a dress leslie gems I thought that it was hard to give it back to Omega (we don’t will keep our leslie adornments tragically).

Not just the development changed however, the outside of the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra likewise got an update. Maybe you could say the greatest or most remarkable update since its presentation. Not exclusively did the teak dial changed somewhat (even teak design rather than vertical), likewise the case configuration changed. The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra currently has a balanced case (compare the cases by taking a gander along the edge of the crown), another (tapered) crown and accessible on extraordinary elastic straps.
