Why this new retro themed watch from Omega
has a "Seamaster Aqua Terra" moniker in the name I don't know. I mean the case is a bit like the Seamaster Aqua Terra, but the dial is something all together different, and it has a new movement. If you like large, 'old-timey' watches (that are luxurious) this might be just for you. The little touches are what make it nice. The case is 49.2mm wide and available in 18k white or rose gold. So right there already we are talking big money. Inside the watch is a new in-house made Omega Calibre 2211 movement. It is COSC Chronometer certified, but for some reason Omega has been hush on whether it is an automatic or manually wound. What gives Omega?
The lovely dial with its "railroad" style Arabic numerals is done in enamel (two layers) with a guilloche engraved sterling silver subsidiary seconds dial. Blued steel hands are really cool. Copying an older Omega design to have the brand logo be included in the hands. See what I mean? An interesting, if hard to understand collector's piece from Omega. The Seamaster Aqua Terra XXL Small Seconds watch will be limited to 88 piece in both types of gold and be available soon.
