September 2022 Sales (LATEST)
Of the many offerings under the Omega brand, among those that seem to spring every now and then in people’s minds is its Seamaster collection. When it first came to being, it did not have much of the strong, sporty vibe to it as most people attribute to it today. But don’t get us wrong—we don’t mean that the earlier models were inferior, just that they weren’t as athletic as they look now. Rather, they were more on the side of dressier sporty but not what you’d really categorize as a sports watch, which users can rely on for time, versatility and durability.

The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra, which was introduced back in 2003, was probably the relatively recent releases that best fit that bill. But combined with its aesthetics is also modern technology that makes it among the most desirable entry-level watches out there. In the years that followed since the first release in the last decade, the appearance has changed ever so slightly, still making it a familiar watch and distinctly Omega. But the inner workings, which matter the most, have received subtle updates that still push the limits of watchmaking for the brand.

Through the years, Omega has updated the look of its Seamaster Aqua Terra, although not drastically, but just enough to make its exterior sleeker and more legible. This resulted in a timepiece that is very flexible as far as sartorial choices are concerned. It’s sporty and masculine, but not over-the-top that it can’t transition into a more formal setting; it’s probably best for professionals who want a strong but still dressier watch. Plus, the Omega branding will certainly help in creating a statement. Its movement is Master Chronometer-certified, a feature that Omega strives for all its current and future timepieces. The fairly priced watches can also put up with most elements and survive swimming, although it is not designed as a diving watch.
While still keeping some of the elements that make it a uniquely Omega watch, the strap of the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra is wanting of a more premium finish. Although this is understandable considering the price, it just doesn’t match how the rest of the watch feels like, which is well-made even when side by side with the brand’s top selection.
