Back in January we gave you some short information about this beautiful Omega, that can withstand high levels of magnetic fields.
Omega has finally introduced their new Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15’000 gauss watch. The novelty is animated by the highly innovative Co-Axial caliber 8508. The mechanism boasts supreme resistance to magnetic fields exceeding 1.5 tesla (15,000 gauss).
The new Omega watch features a 41.50 mm case rendered in stainless steel. The case is coupled with a stainless steel bracelet or a brown leather strap. The lacquered black dial is sun-brushed from the centre and embellished with vertical lines – the signature feature of the brand’s Aqua Terra collection. The dial is completed with brightly yellow details.
The innovative Omega movement does not use a protective container found inside the case. Instead, it contains selected non-ferrous materials, implying the movement itself is anti-magnetic. Even if exposed to a magnetic field exceeding 15,000 gauss, the movement provides reliable performance of a COSC-certified chronometer.
The protective inner cases, commonly used by other timepieces for eliminating the effects of magnetism, block the view of the movement and prevent the possibility of a date window. As the new Seamaster Aqua Terra doesn’t use any inner case, it boasts a see-through sapphire crystal case-back revealing the Co-Axial caliber 8508. The watch also features a date window at 3 o’clock.
The new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15’000 gauss watch is 150-meter water-resistant. Its remarkable reliability is guaranteed by a four-year warranty.
