OMEGA Aqua Terra aesthetics

The Seamaster Aqua Terra can take you from evenings on shore to mornings on board your boat. So what are the typical design traits that make this watch so versatile for work and play?

Twisted Lugs

When first launched, the Aqua Terra embraced a fresh new design. Yet, in keeping with the spirit of the brand, it also borrowed inspiration from past OMEGA models. Most notably, its case design featured the classic twisted lugs commonly associated with the Speedmaster Moonwatch and the 2nd generation Seamaster 300. Today, this aesthetic novelty remains a distinguishing feature of the Aqua Terra models, although 2017’s newest cases have been refined for a symmetrical look and include a wave-edged caseback design.

Teak Deck

Perhaps the most defining feature of the Aqua Terra is its teak patterned dial. The captivating stripes are modelled after the decks of luxury yachts and beautifully represent today’s ocean lifestyle. For 2017’s redesign, the pattern now sails horizontally, as opposed to vertically.

Clear Dial

With its triangular indexes and bold hands, the dial of the Aqua Terra is known for its clean and pure design. Again, this approach is reminiscent of OMEGA’s 2nd generation Seamaster 300 and delivers an easy-to-read layout. In 2017, the simplicity has been taken even further, with less wording and a repositioned date window.

Around the wrist

Usually, a leather strap or metal bracelet completes the classic Aqua Terra look. For 2017, OMEGA has fine-tuned this area, with each watch made to fit easily around different sized wrists. In both male and female models, the metal bracelets are now better integrated to the case. They include hardened links and a patented screw and pin system. Some models have been built onto a unique rubber strap, with a metal link connecting them to the case.
