THE Aqua Terra Shades collection takes Omega watchmaking in a vibrant new direction.
The collection follows the spectrum from ocean to earth, encompassing unique tones such as Atlantic blue, lagoon green and terracotta – an assorted palette that uses nature as inspiration.
Two different sizes are available, with entirely polished stainless steel cases either in 38mm or 34mm, and all presented with a Co-Axial Master Chronometre Movement.
In addition, there are two 18K gold models that deliver an extra edge of luxury.
Crafted in Omega’s long-lasting alloys, these timepieces accentuate the spirit of colour with their own golden hues.
Omega introduced the original Aqua Terra family in 2002.
The bold range of timepieces was given a Latin name, honouring its rich ocean heritage and the spirit of the iconic Seamaster watches, which were known for their reliability both on water (aqua) and on land (terra).
The collection has now endured for more than 20 years, establishing itself as one of the most distinctive and popular timepiece choices.
With the launch of the ‘Shades’ models, the collection is ignited with colour, and backed by the guarantee of Co-Axial Master Chronometre certification.
Within the Shades collection, the dials are crafted from brass and then sun-brushed outwards from the centre.
Each one is also given a layer of lacquer for extra depth, but the true magic is in the colours.
PVD technology, known as Physical Vapour Deposition, achieves a particular effect that enables colours such as terracotta, while CVD technology, known as Chemical Vapour Deposition, achieves certain chemical reactions, perfect for shades such as sea blue.
In the 34mm range, the dials feature 18K white gold for the hands and the indexes, which are shaped like sailboat hulls.
For the 38mm models, Omega has graced the dials with traditional rhodium-plated hands and indexes.
Each watch features a symmetrical case and crown in fully polished stainless steel, with a wave-edged design on the back.
Providing the power is Omega’s Co-Axial Master Chronometre Calibre 8800.
The certification means that each watch and its movement has passed the strict tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology.
Around the wrist, the watches are presented on stainless steel bracelets.
The redesign is based on smaller and elegantly rounded links, which deliver a fresh appearance within the Aqua Terra collection.
To promote the wide-ranging new line, Omega has created a dedicated campaign called ‘Every Shade of You’, celebrating the unique personality of each wearer.
To bring this theme to life, brand ambassadors Zoë Kravitz, Zhou Dongyu and Eddie Redmayne will all appear in a series of bold visuals and film clips.
For extra radiance, two additional watches are introduced in solid gold.
The 38mm choice has been created in 18K Sedna Gold – Omega’s own red gold alloy, known for its warm tones and high resistance to fading.
The 34mm choice is made in 18K Moonshine Gold – Omega’s own yellow gold alloy, known for its pale tones and high resistance to fading.
