The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra watch series combines dazzling design with innovative watchmaking technology in the 21st century. In 1999, the advent of the Omega coaxial escapement device opened a new era in the manufacturing process of modern watches. Today, the new seahorse Aqua Terra continues this major revolution in mechanical watchmaking.
The entire collection has a very eye-catching design element, the ‘Teak Concept’ dial. The vertical texture distributed above the dial is reminiscent of the wooden deck on a luxury yacht. Like other Aqua Terra watches, this series is also closely related to the marine theme, with a breath of ocean. Whether on the deck of a yacht or on a vast expanse of land, wearing the Omega Seahorse Aqua Terra watch feels comfortable. It can be seen that the name of this watch series ‘Aqua Terra’ (meaning water and land) deserves its name.
Refreshing dial design and extraordinary choice of materials
The distinctive design of the dial lies in the carefully carved vertical texture of the ‘Teak Concept’. The hands and hour markers in 18K gold are also completely new: they are frosted and coated with a new white luminous coating, giving them a clear blue light in the dark. The case and Omega’s patented ‘chain needle system’ bracelet offer a variety of metal materials to choose from for an extraordinary look.
Omega’s hairspring innovation
The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Women’s Watch is one of the first models in the Omega watch series to be equipped with the ‘Si 14’ silicon balance spring system. The many elements that make up this system are significant, and they represent the future of Omega watchmaking innovation. The name of the ‘Si 14’ silicon balance spring is derived from the chemical symbol and atomic number of silicon. Silicon is a non-magnetic substance, so the operation of the ‘Si 14’ silicon balance spring is not affected by magnetic substances. This physical property of silicon makes a watch with a ‘Si 14’ silicon balance spring more accurate than a watch with a traditional balance with a hairspring. The small vibrations in daily life will cause the movement of the mechanical watch to deviate, but the ‘Si 14’ silicon balance spring makes the impact of the vibration very small. The structure of the ‘Si 14’ silicon balance spring has a strong degree of freedom, which allows it to adjust its own geometry, ensure the best isochronism, and make the pendulum swing intermittently. This isochronism effectively reduces the time deviation of the watch. The pendulum beam of the balance system and the back of the case are engraved with the ‘Si 14’ mark, demonstrating the outstanding content, luxury quality and precision performance of mechanical watches.
Omega coaxial escapement opens a new era in mechanical watchmaking
In 1999, Omega launched the first wristwatch with a coaxial escapement, marking the birth of a new era of mechanical watchmaking. This is the first practical new escapement system in nearly 250 years.
The coaxial escapement system used in the Omega movement works in conjunction with the cardless balance spring, which is very different from the traditional escapement with fast and slow clips. The moment of inertia is adjusted by two miniature gold adjustment screws embedded in a circular balance wheel, thereby adjusting the watch’s travel time rate. This design avoids the influence of interference caused by the hairspring and the speed clamp during the contact process, thereby ensuring the rate stability of the coaxial escapement in long-term use. As a result, friction is greatly reduced, with almost no need to add lubricant, which basically eliminates the need for maintenance of a movement with a coaxial escapement.
Omega’s new hippocampus Aqua Terra is equipped with a super-performance observatory movement with a coaxial escapement system, which combines the many advantages of the coaxial escapement system and the balance without balance spring, and also makes It’s refreshing to the eye, with the top-of-the-line precision movement inside the watch. This distinguished collection of watches sets a new standard for Omega’s top watchmaking technology and takes Omega into a new era.
Seahorse Aqua Terra men’s watch series and medium models
The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra men’s watch series has two models with diameters of 41.5 mm and 38.5 mm. It is equipped with the Omega revolutionary 8500/8501 movement with a coaxial escapement system, which represents the mechanical watchmaking process. At the same time, the 38.5mm model is favored by women.
The 41.5mm case and bracelet are available in 18K red gold, stainless steel or 18K red gold with stainless steel. The 18K red gold model comes with a brown alligator strap.
The 38.5mm model with coaxial escapement is available in 18K red gold, 18K yellow gold, stainless steel, 18K red gold with stainless steel or 18K yellow gold with stainless steel. 18K red gold and 18K yellow gold models also come with a brown alligator leather strap.
Women’s Aqua Terra
The mechanical models in the Aquamarine women’s Aquamarine series are the first to use the Omega 8520/8521 movement equipped with a coaxial escapement. This high-performance movement is the first movement specially designed for small watches. The Aqua Terra women’s mechanical watch is also the first to be equipped with a ‘Si 14’ silicon balance spring, which represents the top technology in the field of innovative watchmaking.
Aquamarine women’s jewelry watch-irresistible luxury beauty
Aqua Terra women’s jewellery watches are irresistibly luxurious. The dial of this sparkling model is illuminated with eleven hour markers embellished by top Wesselton diamonds, weighing a total of 0.19 carats. The bezel is set with 44 diamonds, weighing 0.77 carats. The case has a diameter of 30 mm and is equipped with a metal bracelet. It is equipped with an Omega 8520/8521 movement with a coaxial escapement and is equipped with a ‘Si 14’ silicon balance spring. The precise and reliable performance and extraordinary design make the Omega Sea Horse Aqua Terra women’s jewelry watch naturally shine infinitely.
Omega Seahorse Aqua Terra Luxury Jewelry Watch Series The ultimate diamond setting technology, blooming unlimited light
Where do we start? If we first depict hundreds of diamonds set on the Aqua Terra luxury jewellery watch in the hippocampus, then we ignore the revolutionary coaxial escapement of the Omega 8421 movement, the cardless balance spring and the ‘Si 14’ silicon Material gossamer. But if we first talk about Omega’s leading innovative watchmaking technology, it will slightly dilute the brilliant diamond light. 18-carat top Wesselton diamonds shine brilliantly!
Diamond-paved ‘Teak Concept’ dial
The dial of the Omega Aquamar luxury jewellery watch series is vertically set with multiple diamonds, presenting a new ‘teak concept’. The body of the 18mm white gold case with a diameter of 30mm is set with the top Wesselton diamond on the 18K white gold bracelet.
Inheriting the beauty of luxury
The three watches in this series all reflect Omega’s perfect inheritance of luxury watchmaking technology, and the details are slightly different:
First paragraph: top 18-carat top Wesselton diamonds!
The most dazzling design of this watch is the long cone and round top Wesselton diamonds. This extraordinary watch is set with a total of 1,434 top Wesselton diamonds, weighing a total of 17.56 carats.
Second: 14 carat diamond
The second watch in this series also displays elegance. The white gold case body is set with round diamonds. The bezel is set with 44 baguette diamonds, weighing 1.32 carats. The entire watch is set with a total of 1,560 diamonds and weighs more than 14 carats.
Paragraph 3: ‘only’ weighs 7 carats
The third watch is set with 726 diamonds and weighs more than 7 carats. It also perfectly blends modern watchmaking with the ultimate diamond shine, which is more understated and luxurious than the other two.
Innovative watchmaking technology, extraordinary design
The legendary Omega Seahorse series was born in 1948 and has received countless glories around the world. Its iconic hippocampal emblem represents unparalleled accuracy and reliability.
Earlier hippocampus watches were rigorously tested by astronauts and navigators in the toughest environments. Omega’s new Seahorse Aqua Terra watch series not only inherits the classic characteristics of earlier models, but also uses innovative technology and extraordinary appearance design, making this series fully glorious. Omega Seamaster watches guarantee you precise performance anytime, anywhere. An adventure is coming? The Aqua Terra series will be your perfect choice.
