This year, the Seamaster Aqua Terra Ladies’ Collection features 30 new models in three different sizes. Even within the refined cases, OMEGA has managed to give the timepieces several design twists and, in most models, a Master Chronometer upgrade that offers impressive levels of precision and performance.
The new models, available in 38 mm, 34 mm or 28 mm versions, feature beautifully symmetrical cases that now achieve a seamless integration with the bracelet. Not only does this improve the aesthetics, but it also provides a better fit for wearers with slim wrists. The patented screw-and-pin bracelet itself has been updated with re-proportioned and domed links that give a more feminine appearance. The re-designed crown in conical in shape with waved edges makes easier for delicate fingers to manipulate.
The dials of the Aqua Terra Ladies’ models remain clean and crisp, and are enhanced by diamond hour-markers. Mother-of-pearl dials remain the firm favourite, completed with 14 different refined colours with an opaline, sandy or lustrous finish. The “water-resistance” wording on the dial has been taken away and engraved on the caseback instead.
For now, two of the new ladies’ models are presented. Firstly, a 38 mm version in a combination of stainless steel and 18K Sedna™ gold. It combines a white mother-of-pearl dial with radiant diamond indexes and a diamond-paved bezel. The second model is a stainless steel 34 mm timepiece with a Tahiti mother-of-pearl dial with diamond indexes.
The caseback features a wave-edged design with sapphire-crystal through which you can see the OMEGA Master Chronometer calibre 8800, used in both of the larger watch sizes. This movement, along with each watch, has reached the highest level of certification for precision and performance as approved by METAS. All timepieces in 34 mm and 38 mm are delivered with a 4-year warranty.
The 28 mm versions soon to be presented in 2017 will include the quartz calibre 4061. The wave-edged caseback of these watches will be stamped with the iconic Seahorse medallion.
