A significant splash of color has been cast along a series of new releases for the new “Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra”. It has permeated the collection with a new array of options, which can only further its overall appeal. This model was never intended to be a professional dive watch. Instead within the Seamaster collection it has been placed nicely between both worlds by offering a respectable water-resistance and the stylish looks to be worn in & out of the office.Today we’ll focus on the bigger of the two options. The larger 38mm version 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.On the flip-side is a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a view into the workings of the mechanical movement.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).Now at the dial is where Omega chooses to add true novelty to these releases. Instead of the often used horizontal-striped “teakwood” motif, they opted for an array of colors designated as: Atlantic Blue, Bay Green, Sandstone (White), Saffron (Yellow) and Terracotta (Reddish Brown).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. Time is told on these hues with rhodium-plated wedge-style hour index markers. Followed by a ring of smaller minute index markers with double-digit Arabic numerals in either white or black, depending on the models.These new dial tones were achieved by an individual vapor disposition process with either a chemical (CVD) or physical (PVD) method. The exact technology has not been fully disclosed, but it had never been applied by Omega before now.The rhodium-plated 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.
