Omega Unveils Seamaster Aqua Terra GMT Watch

Apr 13, 2012
Omega is pleased to unveil its new Seamaster Aqua Terra GMT watch. The novelty is animated by the brands first proprietary movement that gives an advantage of a GMT complication the Co-Axial calibre 8605/8615. Besides the central hour, minute and seconds hands, the watch features a GMT hand that allows to keep track of the time in two time zones.

The case of the new Omega watch, 43 mm in diameter, is rendered in 18K red gold or stainless steel. There is also a version created in the combination of these materials. The new Omega Co-Axial movement can be admired via the sapphire crystal window in the screw-in case-back.

The signature teak pattern decorates the dial, with its vertical lines inspired by the wooden decks on luxury boats. The dial is completed by 18K gold brushed and polished indexes provided with white Superluminova coating. The time is indicated by facetted hands in 18K white or red gold, also provided with white Superluminova coating. The GMT hand stands out due to its diamond-polished red arrow.

The Co-Axial calibre 8605/8615, housed by the Seamaster Aqua Terra GMT watch, is the first movement in the family to offer a GMT complication. It is interesting to mention that the watch owner can also use the GMT hand for compass orientation. It is necessary to hold the timepiece parallel to the ground, so that the hour hand points in the direction of the sun. Then, the GMT hand, adjusted to the same time, will show the north in the northern hemisphere.

The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra GMT watch is teamed with a bracelet crafted from the same material as the case or with a black, brown or blue leather strap.
