||OMEGA SEAMASTER AQUA TERRA 150M CO‑AXIAL MASTER CHRONOMETER ref.: 126.96.36.199.06.001 – 41 MM
The design of the Aqua Terra was influenced by the 1957 Railmaster model, a watch that has been ‘relaunched’ this year as part of a Trilogy set and as a ‘stand alone’ of 3557 pieces. Also, a contemporary Railmaster was brought back to life in the regular collection as well, as part of the Seamaster collection. Anyway, the 41mm symmetrical case is very handsome and feels great on the wrist. I have fairly large wrists, and I am very comfortable with the 41mm case diameter of this Aqua Terra 2017 model. The lugs have this polished finish on top, and a satin finish on the sides. The watch is quite ‘flat’, so it sits nicely on the wrist. The crown shows the same patter as the case back, as you can see on the picture below.
The Seamaster Aqua Terra really plays nicely with the (sun)light, the grey dial and blue hands and indexes really add some extra to that. The symmetrical case is in my opinion an improvement over the previous version, as now the crown doesn’t have that ‘sunken’ look. The crown has a brushed surface with a polished Omega logo in bas relief. The crown is screw-down of course, as it should be on a Seamaster.
What attracts most people to the Aqua Terra is the teak deck dial. It emphasizes on the use near and on the water and with its 150 meters of WR, it can be used in and around the water for sure. The Aqua Terra dials – with the exception of some special or limited editions – used to have a vertical teak deck pattern. With the new Aqua Terra 2017 collection all patterns are now horizontal. It required a bit of adjustment, as we were used to the vertical pattern. For me personally, it also works better for some models than for others. The black dial versions for example, I prefer them somehow with the vertical pattern. This grey dial, a bit fancy looking, is very nice with its horizontal pattern and especially with the blue markers and hands on there. The Omega logo and wording are also in blue while ‘Seamaster’ is printed in white. Also the ‘Co-Axial Master Chronometer’ indication is printed in white.
