With a sophisticated color scheme that reflects both the water and land theme, Omega’s latest additions to the Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M collection live up to their name: Fans can choose from a wide array of larger sized models in 38mm, with dials in Atlantic Blue, Bay Green, Sandstone, Saffron and Terracotta. The colorful new watch faces are fashioned from brass and sun-brushed from the center. They bear rhodium-plated hands and trapezoidal indexes. In this line-up, they forgo with the typical horizontal “teak” pattern which is inspired by the wooden decks of luxury sailboats. However, they do offer a date indication at 6 o’clock.
The Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M is driven by Omega’s modern Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8800. It offers a power reserve of 55 hours and withstands magnetic resistance up to 15,000 Gauss.
From an aesthetic point of view, the automatic movement offers fine decorations, such as Geneva Waves in Arabesque as well as blackened screws, barrel and balance wheel, which can be admired through the exhibition case back. The five debutantes are attached to a stainless-steel bracelet that echoes the fine polishing of the case. Pricing is currently marked at $6,000.

I have an Aqua Terra, approx. 2018 vintage. It has a light cream colored face with thin vertical cuts that are supposed to represent wooden ship planks. With gold colored hands, it is by far one of the most beautiful watches I own. I would imagine the new models are cheaper to make, with a much higher price. I’m sure it’s a quality watch, but not interesting to me.
I doubt Omega will be able to replicate the success that Rolex had with the introduction of colours on their dials….
In reality it was Grand Seiko that started the trend with coloured dials, and then Rolex capitalised on this.
The Aquaterra range has not set the world on fire, and copying Rolex and GS won’t do them any favours.
