Timeless stylingBASELWORLD 2013: The OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra Day-Date
The watches in OMEGA’s Seamaster Aqua Terra collection have established themselves as some of the brand’s most distinguished. With timeless styling, they live up to their name: they are equally at home on the decks of the boats recalled by the distinctive vertical lines on their dials or on dry land.
This year, OMEGA is proud to introduce new Aqua Terra models that include a date window at 6 o’clock as well as a window at 12 o’clock displaying the day of the week. The day and date indications don’t change gradually but jump instantaneously at midnight. The range of case metal and dial options offered for the Day-Date watches gracefully extends the Seamaster Aqua Terra family. The Seamaster Aqua Terra Day-Date in subtle stainless steel An understated member of the Aqua Terra Day-Date family, this model has a case made of sturdy stainless steel with either a matching bracelet or a leather strap. These models are available with blue or black dials and rhodium-plated hands and indexes or with a silvery dial with 18K red gold hands and indexes.
Powering the bicolour and stainless steel models in the Aqua Terra Day-Date collection is the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8602. Equipped with an Si14 balance spring, this COSC-certified chronometer is delivered with a full four-year warranty. The exclusive OMEGA movement is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback.
