The Reinvention of the OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra

By Amanda Evans | 3 minute read


Designed for adventure seekers, the OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra embodies versatility to support the journeys of its wearers both on land and at sea. This year the Aqua Terra has entered exciting new territory with a fresh look for the dials of the 2021 collection. New for this year and an absolute first is the introduction of the Small Seconds subdial at 6 o’clock.

The word ‘icon’ is overused in watchmaking but is undeniably relevant when it comes to the OMEGA Seamaster. First launched in 1948 to celebrate the brand’s 100th anniversary, the Seamaster has become an OMEGA staple, finding fans in everyone from professional divers to James Bond himself.

And revered collections such as the Aqua Terra have gone on to enjoy their own success as part of the Seamaster family. The Seamaster quickly became a leader in the field of diving tools, and a favourite among those who worked at sea. Today, the design remains true to the original, but augmented with the very latest technology.

The exciting new 2021 collection comprises ten 38mm models, including two luxury editions, and nine 41mm models, to include four luxury versions. The most prominent and key feature on all new models is the Small Seconds subdial at 6 o’clock with an applied subdial ring, many of which are in 18K Sedna™ gold and some which sparkle with diamonds. The stunning new dials in subtle sun-brushed shades are detailed with a two-tone teak pattern and striking hour markers ranging from incremental diamond indexes to sailboat hull-shaped indexes set with a shimmering mother-of-pearl inlay. Presented on a matching metal bracelet or a range of complementary and colourful leather or rubber straps, this luxury timepiece exudes versatility, tailoring to the preferences of its audience.

The new OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra pieces are a fantastic example of OMEGA’s testament to creating powerful yet stylish tool watches, and these would be the ideal piece for a watch collector who wants an exceptional timepiece with a history behind it.Lisa Broun, Senior Watch Buyer


Presenting a sportier look, the 38mm models comprise of eight models in stainless steel or a combination of steel and 18K Sedna™ gold. Eye-catching dials in either dark green, light green, linen or extra white mother-of-pearl are presented with matching bracelets or beautifully coloured leather straps, depending on the model. The new OMEGA Aqua Terra has been designed to suit a variety of tastes and lifestyle choices. For those lured by a more luxury offering, there are also two 18K Sedna™ Gold models with diamond-set bezels. Available with a purple jade dial and 18K Sedna™ gold bracelet or an extra white mother-of-pearl dial and red leather strap. Both house the superb Co-axial Master Chronometer calibre 8803.


The 41mm models comprise four stainless steel models and one model sporting a blend of steel and 18K Sedna™ gold. Dials are two-tone, adding depth to the displays and contrast to the new Small Seconds subdials. Available in either a blue-grey, silvery-blue or silvery-beige colour palette and presented on a matching bracelet or an integrated rubber strap in a complementary colour. Four further 41mm models, available in 18K Sedna™ gold, present a more luxury offering. Housing OMEGA’s magnificent Co-Axial Master Chronometer calibre 8917, Aqua Terra enthusiasts can select either a two-tone blue-grey dial or silvery-beige dial with either a matching bracelet or integrated rubber strap.

At the heart of these precision-led timepiece are 4 powerful movements, all viewable through the transparent caseback. Luxury calibres 8803 and 8917, almost as exquisite as the watch exterior, are highlighted by an 18K Sedna™ gold rotor and balance-bridge.
