Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Watch – Understated British Essence
Replica Omega released a special edition of the Seamaster Aqua Terra, named the “Captain’s Watch”, in order to celebrate the 2012 Ryder’s Cup. Inspired by the event’s logo, this Omega watch has a distinctive color combination of red, blue and yellow. It was ever worn by American Ryder Cup team captain and the brand’s ambassador Davis Love III. As one of the partners with The PGA of America, Omega was for the first time act as Official Timekeeper of the Ryder Cup.
The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra watch is delivered in a 41.5mm case, crafted from brushed and polished stainless steel. The polished screw-in case back has a sapphire crystal revealing the movement for your close watch. The silver dial of this Omega watch is embellished with the vertical lines that are inspired by the Aqua Terra collection. It is completed with blue and white centre hour, minute and seconds hands treated with Super-LumiNova to offer great legibility in dark conditions. The hours are marked by white gold indexes, and there is a date window at 3 o’clock. In addition, due to the brand’s logo and the words “CO-AXIAL CHRONOMETER” written in red, the minute markers are highlighted with the same color. The colors of red and blue are inspired from the main tones of Davis Love III’s national flag.
The Omega watch is animated by the in-house chronometer-grade co-axial caliber 8500 with a Si14 silicon balance spring, which offers high resistance and anti-magnetic properties. The movement offers an advantage of 60-hour power reserve. The watch boasts water resistance up to 150 meters, with a screw-down crown finished with the brand’s logo. Finally, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Watch is secured on the owner’s wrist with a stainless steel screw-and-pin bracelet featuring brushed outer links and polished center links.
If you are looking for a timepiece with simple and understated design, I believe this Omega watch will be the one. However, the price asks us to face the reality that common people are unaffordable for it. It is actually a wise choice to go for the Omega replica watches with reasonable prices yet top quality.
