The Watch

Here we have a¬†2022 Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial 220.13.41.21.03.002 that has a 41mm brushed and polished stainless steel symmetrical case, the case curves over your wrist with the characteristic twisted lugs, and a lug-to-lug length of 47.5mm and a case thickness of 13mm gives the watch an impressive wrist presence.¬†The Aqua Terra family was launched in 2002 and in 2017 we saw this improved version launched at Baselworld.¬†On the right side is a signed screw-down crown that sits slightly recessed. The polished smooth bezel holds a flat sapphire crystal AR coated on both sides above a blue dial with a horizontal striped pattern inspired by the wooden decks of sailing boats. An outer minute chapter ring has small Arabic numerals with blue numerals at the quarters surrounding applied arrow point indexes, that catch the light beautifully, coated in SuperLumiNova marking the hours. At 6 o‚Äôclock we have a framed date window. Rhodium-plated Arrow hands infilled with SuperLumiNova complemented by a blue sweeping second hand with arrow point filled with luminance. Text is precisely applied with the Omega motif "Seamaster'' at 12 o‚Äôclock and ‚ÄúCo-Axial Master Chronometer‚ÄĚ at 6 o‚Äôclock. On the reverse is a screw-down exhibition sapphire case back with a wave pattern outer edge, inside an automatic Omega Co-Axial Cal. 8900, 29 jewels, 25,200 beats per hour, certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), the watch goes through COSC certification before being selected for the eight tests run by METAS, this in-house movement released in 2015 is Chronometer Certified with a bi-directional rotor which reduces winding time and a Co-Axial Escapement, two barrels in series for excellent stability and durability and a silicon balance spring providing the movement resistance to magnetic fields of over 15,000 Gauss, decorated with Cotes de Geneve. The watch comes fitted on its Omega 20mm Alligator leather strap with a push-button deployment clasp¬†and the watch comes with its Omega presentation box, swing tag and papers.


Personal Note

The Aqua Terra family of watches is massively underrated in my opinion, especially once pre-owned and prices become far more reasonable, just like this model. Unfortunately, everyone likes to compare watches to Rolex and comparisons within their lineup, but to please those people I would say this model is the perfect cross between the Rolex OP and Datejust, it fits perfectly into multiple roles and would sit in any collection and demand wrist time. If you're unsure, book an appointment and come see it for yourself.


The Brand

They were formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. in 1848 founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds. When he died in 1879, his sons carried on his dream. In 1880 they moved to 96 Rue Jakob-Stampfli where they remain today.¬†The brothers produced their first mass-produced calibre, the Labrador In 1885. Just a few years later in 1892, they produced the first minute-repeater.¬†In 1903 they renamed the company Omega until 1982 when they officially changed their name to Omega SA.¬†During WW1 Omega watches were used as official timekeepers for the Royal Flying Corps and the US Army.¬†In 1930, Omega and Tissot merged together to form Soci√©t√© Suisse pour l'Industrie Horlog√®re (SSIH) In 1931, another group was formed - Allgemeine Schweizerische Uhrenindustrie AG (ASUAG). Where SSIH was primarily French-speaking, ASUAG was founded by the more German-speaking members of the Swiss watch industry. In 1948 they introduced the first edition of one of its most symbolic watches: the Seamaster.¬†Omega first introduced the Constellation in 1952. At the time it was Omega's flagship timepiece. The first models had a Cal. 354 bumper movement in them. Later in 1955, Omega introduced the Automatic Cal. 50x, followed in 1959 by the Cal.55x (no date) and 56x (date) versions. Many of the Constellations came with pie-pan dials, diamond indexes, and fancy lug configurations. All the gold Constellations of that time have the Observatory of Geneva's hand engraved on the back. The stainless steel and stainless steel/gold versions had a gold medallion on the back with the Observatory of Geneva. The eight stars above the Observatory stand for the many exploits of Omega in the world Chronometer competition. Celebrating the fact that all Constellations are Chronometer Certified.¬†In 1962, when astronaut Wally Schirra wore a Speedmaster on his Mercury Sigma 7 Mission, making it the first Omega watch to enter space. After rigorous tests, NASA used Omega for all their Apollo missions including the 1969 Moon landing of Apollo 11. Today Omega is still an astronaut's first choice. In 1969, President Nixon famously said it was ‚Äútoo valuable‚ÄĚ and turned down the first-ever all-gold Speedmaster Professional Deluxe.¬†As a response to the ever-growing threat of electronic watches to the manufacturers of mechanical watches, Omega and many Swiss brands such as Rolex and Patek Philippe formed Centre Electronique Horologer (CEH). Prototypes began to appear in 1967 with their production starting in 1968. Then In 1972, Omega introduced the reference, 198.030, which included the Omega calibre 1250, a ‚Äėtuning-fork electronic movement which was made under licence from Bulova.¬†Later we saw a merger of SSIH and ASUAG into SMH, or Soci√©t√© de Micro√©lectronique et d‚ÄôHorlogerie. This merger took place in 1983.¬†In 1992, the company acquired Blancpain, and in 1998 it officially rebranded itself from SMH to the Swatch Group. Then, in 1999, they purchased and integrated Breguet into the Swatch Group.
