The Seamaster Aqua Terra Collection launched in 2008 features some exciting design enhancements and technological innovations. The entire Collection shares a particularly striking design feature: their “Teck Concept” dials have vertical lines which are reminiscent of the wooden decks on luxury boats.
The Seamaster Aqua Terra Ladies’ Collection
The Ladies’ watches in the Seamaster Aqua Terra Collection 2008 represent the ultimate blend of eye-catching design and innovative 21st century watchmaking technology.
The mechanical models in the Collection are the first to be equipped with the extraordinary OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8520/8521, the first Co-Axial calibre designed especially for smaller watches. These Aqua Terra Ladies’ mechanical watches are also among the first watches to be equipped with a silicon balance spring, a feature which offers unprecedented chronometric performance in an industrially-produced mechanical wristwatch.
The classic models have 30 mm cases in 18-Ct red gold, 18-Ct yellow gold, or stainless steel or in versions which blend 18-Ct red gold or 18-Ct yellow gold with stainless steel. They are offered with OMEGA’s patented screw and pin system bracelets which match their cases.
These watches have Teck grey, opaline silver, or white mother-of-pearl dials enhanced by the distinctive “Teck Concept” vertical lines. Their 18-Ct gold hands and hour markers have a dramatic new look: they have been facetted diamond-polished and are coated with a powerful new white Super-LumiNova and match their cases.
The Aqua Terra Ladies “Jewellery” Collection is uncompromisingly luxurious. The watches in the Collection have mother-of-pearl dials with “Teck Concept” engraved vertical lines; the dials are accentuated with 11 Top Wesselton diamond hour markers totalling 0.19 carat. The bezel is set with 44 diamonds with a weight of 0.77 carat.
