The new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15`000 Gauss …

I already presented the watch to you in January. This is now the final version. The 316L-steel case houses the Omega in-house caliber 8508. The watch is totally amagnetic and resists magnetic fields even stronger then 15.000 Gauss. It is difficult to test a watch under such conditions, so Omega guaranties at least 15.000 Gauss although the watch was tested with even stronger magnetic fields up to 30.000 Gauss. Anyhow 15.000 Gauss is by far enough! 15.000 Gauss is 15-times more than the Rolex Milgauss can resist. And compared with some IWC-watches it is also 15-times more. IWC guarantees 80.000 A/m, Omega 1.200.000 A/m.

Omega for the first time used a new material called Nivagauss to build several components of the movement. Many other components are made out of an amorphous metal. No details have been communicated yet.

Omega will now step by step integrate this new technology to all its in-house movements. So this new watch is neither a limited edition, nor a one-time shot. The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15`000 Gauss is the beginning of a whole new area of modern watchmaking. In my personal opinion this is a real watchmaking revolution not just an evolution.

The new Omega Speedmaster `57 …

This watch replaces the old “Broad Arrow” chronograph. It uses the same broad arrows and the particular bezel. New instead are the two big counters on the dial that allow a perfect readability of the subsidiary second and the stopped time when using the chronograph. The 42 mm case houses the Omega in-house caliber 9300. The watch is available in different executions: steel & titan, steel & gold, red gold and yellow gold.

The new Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon …

This is a single block ceramic case. Its form is not done by injecting ceramic into a mould, but cut out of a full ceramic block. This takes 20 times longer than injecting. It took Omega quite a while to make this possible. Omega developed the milling process together with the Swatch Group sister companies Commadur and Ruedin.

This difficult production of the ceramic case limits the quantities of that Speedmaster to maximum 3000 pieces a year. This is just a natural limitation; the watch itself has no limitation. The ceramic case houses the Omega in-house caliber 9300.

    Dear Mr. Linz, thank you very much for the great pictures of this great and wonderful watches. The watch which i like most is the new dark side of the moon. i´m especially interested in the “Haptik” of the ceramic material. best regards thomas

  3. Akif says:

    Thank you Mr Linz for the in depth presentation on the new Omega’s…they are some lovely models there especially the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon

    I would love to know apart from the Seamaster Aqua Terra Chronograph GMT you have shown above, will there be any other new Aqua Terra Chronograph models coming out this year? Or are the ones on the Omega website the latest range?

    Also will they be refreshing the Speedmaster Broad Arrow range or does the Speedmaster 57 range replace this entirely?

    Love your reports!

    Thank you

    I keep coming back to your Omega presentation… I went from disliking Omega a few years ago, to falling madly in love with the 9300 movement’s (speedster, ocean planet) and now the new models including the bullhead, ceramic and 15,000…Omega is quickly becoming my favorite brand along with JLC.
    Thanks for having your thorough presentation before any one else!

    I wonder why they are removing the date window frames on the Aqua Terras? They looks so nice on the current models.

  6. Chris Durso says:

    The new Seamaster GMT and the Dark Side of the Moon look great.

    I agree 100% with Mr. Nguyen,100%. I’m really looking forward to seeing ‘The Bullhead’ and any alternate versions of it in person. Last October our local Omega AD had their annual watch show. Now I know why I got $4000.00 off a $9300.00 Aqua Terra GMT Chronograph. Apparently, I’m not as shewd a ‘deal-maker’ as I thought. In all honesty, and I’m not just trying to save face, I’m definitely partial to the previous version. I love ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’ Speedmaster. On the other hand, I can’t really say I care for the black Aqua Terra Annnual. As for the rest of the Omega models presented, I liked them. Final grade: B+. Mr. Linz final grade: A+. WELL DONE!!!

    Thanks for the great reporting. The Bullhead Seamaster looks fantastic, as does the Dark Side of the Moon Speedmaster.
