Why We Love It
Forgive us if we sound like a broken record here - but one of our favorite things about Omega Seamasters are the seemingly infinite dial, hands, and case variations they were produced with - never a dull moment!
One such line of watches is the Seamaster Aqua Terra collection. First introduced in 2002, these watches aimed to be a bit more versatile than 'standard fare' Professional line Seamasters with a dressed up appearance devoid of the tool-watch elements that define their sportier siblings. Since then, the line has evolved to offer a wide range of colors, materials, complications and features.
This particular example, a Reference 188.8.131.52.55.001, features a 34mm stainless steel case with a mother of pearl dial with diamond set indices, a date window at 6:00, a sapphire exhibition caseback - revealing Omega's Calibre 8800 Master Co-Axial movement- and an brilliantly designed stainless steel bracelet with a hidden deployant clasp.
This lovely piece offers Omega pedigree and performance in a robust and versatile package, suitable for a variety of wrists and occasions.
If you are unsure about going down the vintage route but still desire a classically styled watch with some added modern accouterments, this Aqua Terra should be in your sights!
The Seamaster Story
Since the Seamaster’s launch in 1948, it has been the vibrant, beating heart of Omega's collection.
The key to its longevity, in part, lies in its adaptability. It comes in dive watch models, which were worn by professional divers (and James Bond), or dress models favored by the likes of Mad Men’s Don Draper.
Omega released the first Seamaster in 1948 to coincide with the Summer Olympics held in London. In a city ravaged by the Blitz, the Olympics represented a time to look forward while still being respectful of the past. For Omega, whose 40th Anniversary was also that year, the manufacture’s role as Official Timekeeper represented the ideal opportunity to launch a new collection.
Advertising material of the time touted the “ruggedness” of the Seamaster, more than the average wearer would ever likely call for in its life… which would prove all the more important with the 1957 launch of the Seamaster 300 diver’s model.
Today, the Omega Seamaster is a collection of timepieces as varied as the people who wear them – including dress and sport models in a variety of case sizes and materials with any number of dial layouts and designs.
It is without question an important historical model and a delight to wear in any of its variations.
