In the last few years, OMEGA’s Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer – also known as ”the watch made to track every time zone on the planet” – continues to gain momentum across the globe. The timepiece has grown steadily in popularity, to become a favourite of international travelers and passionate collectors.
Three new models are addes now to the Worldtimer collection: a titanium edition with a dial made entirely by laser ablation – and two striking options in stainless steel. In addition to scratch-resistant ceramic bezels, all three watches have something very special in common: the unique Worldtimer display. At the centre of the dial, OMEGA has produced a vision of Earth, viewed from above the North Pole, by laser-ablating continents and colours on a grade 5 titanium surface. Although impossible to see with the naked eye, this entire watch-scape is domed, to mimic the curvature of the Earth. Circling the topographic map is a 24-hour indication under hesalite glass, divided into night and day sections.
BIENNE Switzerland, OMEGA’s home city, is among the many global destinations circling around each dial and its outer ring. All place names, with the exception of the British capital are coloured yellow gold for the stainless-steel versions. LONDON is in red to highlight Greenwich Mean Time, now more formally known as Universal Time Coordinated (UTC).
Bold and sporty, the 43 mm Worldtimer in lightweight and corrosion resistant titanium is the ultimate statement piece. On this model, OMEGA has produced the entire black and grey dial, including its colours, with laser. There are no transferred elements, apart from the word LONDON and even here the red varnish has been applied by hand. To complement the matte dial, OMEGA has opted for a brushed black ceramic bezel, and blackened hands and indexes, filled with white Super-LumiNova which emits a blue glow in the dark. Completing the look is an integrated strap in black structured rubber with grey stitching, additional decorative link in brushed grade 2 titanium, and grade 2 titanium clasp.
Globetrotters wishing to keep it classic have two style options in stainless steel. One with matching stainless-steel bracelet and butterfly clasp, another with integrated green rubber strap with grey stitching, additional decorative link in polished steel, and polished-brushed fold over clasp.
Each 43 mm stainless steel model has a sun-brushed PVD dial in green, encircled by a polished-brushed green ceramic bezel. Adding shine to the dial are hands and indexes in 18K Moonshine™ Gold.
