Previously we covered the ten new 38mm editions, now lets focus on the nine new 41mm version. This is undoubtedly the bigger option, but I'd also argue it's the most desirable as well. What sets it apart in my eyes is that iconic dial design, which resembles the wood deck of a luxury yacht. Overall this "Seamaster Aqua Terra Small Seconds" has preserved the best elements of the collection, while adding a useful complication to the mix.Just like the smaller option this 41mm case can also be had made out of stainless-steel, 18k Sedna gold, or two-tone variations; all with a transparent case back that allows to view the inner workings of the mechanical movement.
Mounted to the case is a polished bezel that either matches the case alloy, or comes as gold on steel giving way to some of the two-tone options among this extensive release. It also comes equipped with a riveted screw-in crown adorned by the Omega logo. As seen below the brushed finish of the main case plays well with the shinny polished bezel.All topped by a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. Water-resistance on these watches can reach up to 150 meters (500 feet).Time is exhibited on the classic nautical themed teak-like pattern, crafted with horizontal engraved stripes in negative relief. The hour index markers are shaped like the hull of a boat and coated with luminous material. The hands are similar in style and vary by the use of an arrow-top on the long minute hand.Circling around the periphery of the dial is a 60-minute ring with double-digit numerals for every 5-minute increment.Unlike the sub-seconds seen on the smaller 38mm version that used thin markers or diamonds; these bigger models have embraced the augmented space to use Arabic numerals.As the name implies, in common all of these dial options come with the small-seconds aligned at 6 o’clock with a large date-window.
