    Aqua Terra 150M Worldtimer


    The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M Worldtimer is not a new model. It’s been out for two years now, but this time in full Sedna gold. This year, Omega is adding several timepieces to the family. We are talking about, and now bracelet yourselves for the name, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M GMT Worldtimer Co-Axial Master Chronometer 43mm in Sedna gold. This specific watch sits on top of the Worldtimer family. It does not only have a solid gold case but a matching bracelet, too, making it a pretty substantial watch.

    Nevertheless, the gold case is not the only remarkable feature of the Aqua Terra 150M Worldtimer. Its dial is just as exquisite and beautifully crafted. And then we have not even talked about the movement.

    Sedna

    The Aqua Terra 150M Worldtimer is a big watch, both literary and figuratively speaking. The size is 43mm, the thickness is almost 15mm (14,8mm to be precise). What is more interesting, however, is the 242g weight. Inevitably, this involves heavy parts like the dial and the movement. Yet, this – kind of – gives you an idea of what heft are we dealing with here. Cleary, the watch does not remain unrecognized when worn.



    The case back is also mostly brushed. Though, there isn’t much of a gold surface there. The center of the back is a huge display window. I don’t mind this, the Omega caliber 8939 is a thing of beauty, and I’m happy to look at it. One thing worth mentioning is the fact that the watch is resistant to magnetic fields up to 15,000 Gauss. All this, with a display case back. We’ve come a long way since the early days of antimagnetic watches, ladies and gentlemen. On the case back, you see the model name and the water resistance rating.

    Planet Earth

    We will talk about the caliber 8939; I promise, but first, let’s stop for a second and take a closer look at the dial. A lot is going on here too. We have three parts in two layers. The outer dial is opaline silver with vertical teak stripes with a circle of global destinations in red, blue, and sedan gold. Note that right of London marked in red (GMT), you can see Bienne, the hometown of Omega. The center of the dial has a 24-hour Hesalite crystal ring where the lighter part indicates daytime and the darker nighttime. It sits a bit lower than the rest of the dial. Finally, we arrived at the Aqua Terra 150M Worldtimer’s center. Here, we see the vision of Earth as one would look down over the North Pole. This part is grade 5 titanium, laser-ablated to create the blue ocean.

    Omega Caliber 8939

    Finally, we get to the Aqua Terra 150M Worldtimer movement, the Omega caliber 8939. We are talking about a self-winding, mechanical movement with Co-Axial escapement. The 8939 has 39 jewels and a frequency of 25,200vph. The power reserve is 60 hours.
