Fresh off its recent releases in partnership with Swatch, OMEGA has been on a hot streak as of late. Now, the Swiss watchmaker has debuted a trio of new references as part of its Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer lineup. Stainless steel has returned for two of the pieces, but this time with the addition of a scratch-resistant ceramic bezel. Oh yeah, there’s also a titanium version (also with a ceramic bezel).
OMEGA’s Aqua Terra Worldtimer continues to grow in popularity, especially as the concept of tracking time anywhere on Earth becomes more and more appealing in a world of telecommunications and remote work. As opposed to previous versions of the watch, which featured either blue or white dials — both with a blue world map in the center — the new releases come in either green or gray. While the function and in-house caliber 8938 movement remain the same here, the new colors significantly diversify a range that had limited wearability with its bright blue colors that screamed, “I’m a diver!” Incredibly versatile now, the black ceramic bezel and rubber strap against the gray titanium dial gives the grade 2 titanium version of the watch a stealthier appearance. Meanwhile, the green ceramic bezel around the green dial — with either steel bracelet or green rubber strap options — provide a classy, yet understated appeal for the stainless steel version. All three watches come in the standard 43mm case size.
Titanium timepieces are all the rage right now, and for good reason. They’re more cost-efficient than they used to be, plus they’re significantly more lightweight than their steel counterparts. For this titanium version of the Worldtimer, the entire dial has undergone laser ablation — a process already used to create the beautiful gold-filled textured maps on the Worldtimer dials.
Prices range from $10,200 to $11,800 for the new Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer models. Head over to OMEGA’s website to purchase one for yourself.
