We’ve said it in the past already, but if you’re looking for a great daily luxury watch, which combines enough resistance for the weekend and casual elegance for business days, Omega certainly has one of the best options on the market: the Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m Master Chronometer. Sleek and discreet, robust too, it combines multiple advantages and is available in multiple colours. To give the collection an extra boost, the brand unveils two new versions with colourful dials. Meet the new Green and Blue Aqua Terra watches for 2020.

The Aqua Terra is Omega’s definition of the “one-watch collection”. A watch that you can use all day, every day, everywhere and that can withstand pretty much all situations. It can be worn with a pair of jeans and sneakers, it can resist a relatively deep dive, it can be worn with a suit and still, it will feel appropriate. It might not be the fanciest, most exclusive and complicated piece that you’ll encounter, but it certainly is a watch that will get the job done with taste and accuracy.

The Aqua Terra has been in the Omega collection for some years already but has a received a tasteful update in 2017, with new dials, slightly updated case and, mainly, the latest generation of movement, the Master Chronometer and all its innovations. The watch itself used to be 41.5mm but was reduced to 41mm, with a different shape too, as the case is now fully symmetrical and the crown is no longer recessed and is now conically shaped. The model is recognizable but more elegant than before.

Secondly, the classic “teak” dial was updated too, reinforcing the nautical theme. Since the 2017 facelift, the stripes are now horizontal and less deeply engraved. In the same vein, the date has been moved from 3 to 6, to complement the case’s symmetry. As always, Omega offers a wide range of colours – silver, black, blue, grey… – and also multiple options regarding the straps/bracelets, available in leather, rubber or steel, in various colours.

To keep it up with the rest of the collections, Omega implemented its new-generation movement, the calibre 8900 with its Master Chronometer certification. This means a movement with Co-Axial escapement, high magnetism resistance (up to 15,000 gauss), 5-year warranty and an accuracy surpassing the COSC criteria. The automatic movement, visible through the caseback, is decorated with Arabesque Geneva stripes and boasts 60h of power reserve.

Now, for 2020, the brand adds two new colours to its Aqua Terra 150m Master Chronometer collection, each available on alligator leather straps or steel bracelets. First is a classic blue version with white printings. Simple, discreet, elegant. Second is a bolder green version – but knowing the classic style of the watch, the colour remains discreet enough.

Price and availability

These new 2020 Blue and Green versions of the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m Master Chronometer 41mm will soon be available. They will be priced at EUR 5,100 on a leather strap and EUR 5,400 on a steel bracelet. More details at omegawatches.com.

  1. This is the first article I have seen on these two new Aqua Terra variations. The green dial is superb, having tried it in the OB several times it is actually quite subtle and can look black in low light bit once the light catches it the colour varies from olive green to emerald. The new blue version is actually quite different to the existing blue Aqua Terra as the move from blue accents to white while small is actually very noticeable in person. The new blue dial Aqua Terra is apparently going to appear on Daniel Craig’s wrist at the start of No Time To Die. It looks like it will become the new Aqua Terra “Skyfall”.

  2. Hi,
    Do you think the green dial would be available in 38 mm ?
    I found 41mm a bit large for a “all rounder” watch ( same as the datejust in 41 which is far to big)
    Thanking you
    Pierre

  3. The green dial is not available as a 38mm Aqua Terra and I think it is unlikely that it ever will be. Omega seems to concentrate on the 41mm Aqua Terra for new colours and special editions. Although there have been a couple of 38mm special editions these have been based on the women’s version with the round date window. I hope Omega will introduce annual dial colour editions of the Aqua Terra – green for 2019; perhaps burgundy for 2020 and say bronze for 2021 and so on like Glashutte Original have done with the Sixties watch.

  4. I’ve got the old blue aqua terra on a rubber strap and I’ve noticed a small change in the pictures. It is a great all rounder but shouldn’t be on a leather strap.

  5. That’s Olive Drab – not green. Hulks are green, Orises are green – this one ain’t. Very disappointing, and I’ve already got too many blue dial watches 😒

  6. Do yourself a favour and go and see the green dial in a boutique. The photographs make it look olive but in reality it has shades of different green ranging from olive to racing green to emerald. Deciding the colour is not for you from photographs on a website is not the way to do it.

  7. SPQR – Good advice, and I will go and take a look whenever they finally come in. It’s just that I’ve been disappointed so many times by green dial watches which look great in photos but drab in the flesh – for example the PAM00995. Perhaps this will be the other way round.

  8. Thanks SQPR for your answer, it’s a shame and i think it would be a mistake for Omega to concentrate on larger size while the market seems to ask more and more for smaller cases !!!
    We will see……
