After restyling their coveted “Seamaster Aqua Terra” collection, back in 2017. Now Omega is kicking off the new decade in 2020 by extending their color-scheme options, with a new blue and green dialed editions. Let’s take a closer look at this pair of METAS-certified “Omega Seamaster Aquaterra 150 Master Chronometer” releases.
The 41mm case is made of stainless-steel with an exhibition case back, which allows to view the inner workings of the mechanical movement. Mounted to the case is a stainless-steel sloped bezel with a polished finish.
It also comes equipped with a conical-shaped screw-in crown. All topped by a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. Water-resistance on this watch can reach up to 150 meters (500 feet).
Time is exhibited on a teak motif dial in either: green or blue with steel applied hour index marker, while a white printed 60-minute scale with double-digit numerals for every five-minute increment, circles around the periphery of the dial.
The rhodium plated central broad-arrow hands and hour index markers have all been fitted with a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility. There is also a trapezoidal shaped date aperture, placed at the 6 o’clock position.
This “teak motif” is modeled after the decks of luxury yachts and serves as a defining feature on this timepiece. And contrary to previous editions manufactured before the 2017 modifications, the lines run horizontally across the dial, instead of vertically as they did then.
