For those with smaller wrists the range of the “Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra” with new colors will also be available, although some tones may differ. Other than that the 34mm option offers the same robust case with high water-resistance, making it a great all around timepiece. It just all comes in a more compact case and with some aesthetic tweaks to the dial layout.The smaller 34mm option has essentially maintained the signature Aqua Terra shape and all come made out of stainless-steel for this series. Instead of a mix of polished and brushed as seen on previous models, these come in a fully polished finish (just like the bigger 38mm option).On the flip-side is a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a view into the workings of the mechanical movement. It comes equipped with a free sprung balance and is decorated by a rhodium plated finish with Geneva waves in arabesque.
Mounted to the case is a stainless-steel bezel with a polished finish and it also comes equipped with a knurled screw-in crown. All topped by a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides, which also assists with water-resistance on this watch reaching up to 150 meters (500 feet).The color options are where these 2022 updates really add novelty to the collection. Instead of the often used horizontal-striped “teakwood” motif, they opted for an array of colors designated as: Sea Blue, Lagoon Green, Sandstone (white), Pink and Lavendar (Purple).
As previously mentioned, Omega has stated that these colors are meant to represent the transition between the two natural states that the Aqua Terra collection is intended to represent: Aqua, for water, and Terra, for earth/land. The only color shared with the 38mm version is the sandstone white. But the same individual vapor disposition process with either a chemical (CVD) or physical (PVD) method, were used to achieve these new hues. The exact technology has not been fully disclosed, but it had never been applied by Omega before now.
So despite different color options for the 34mm, they’ve maintained the same aesthetics. The layout is where it differs the most from the 38mm option. Here time is told with 18k white gold hour index markers, shaped like the hull of a sailboat (instead of being rhodium-plate with wedge-style shapes) and there is no ring with smaller minute index markers. An overall simpler look, for a slightly smaller canvas.The 18k white gold central hands and hour index markers have all been fitted with a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility. There is also a white background date window placed at the 6 o’clock position, which is circle shaped on the 34mm version.
