travels the world

in speed and style

O mega’s Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer is a go-to travel watch and a robust sports watch all in one package. Three new versions include a titanium edition and two stainless steel pieces. All three are more sporty than conventional worldtimers, with green rubber strap options for the steel versions and a black rubber strap for the titanium. At the center of each dial is a vision of earth viewed from the North Pole, made by laser-ablating continents and colors on a grade 5 titanium surface. The outer world time city ring includes Bienne, Switzerland, where Omega is based. All three have scratch-resistant ceramic bezels (black for the titanium piece and green for the steel) and use Co-Axial Master Chronometer caliber 8938 movements. They are sports-sized large, at 43 mm, and water resistant to 150 meters.

The Speedmaster Super Racing Edition is the debut venue for Omega’s fine- tune Spirate System, a revolutionary new spiral attached to the movement’s balance spring that allows for ultra-fine rate adjustments. The new, patent-pending component makes it possible to achieve a precision of between 0 and +2 seconds a day, a remarkable new standard in watchmaking. (By comparison, the official Swiss chronometer testing agency, COSC, guarantees a watch’s precision to within -4 to +6 seconds per day). It is used in the Co-Axial Master Chronometer caliber 9920. The Speedmaster Super Racing Edition is built for speed: it’s a chronograph with a black ceramic bezel etched with a yellow grand feu enamel tachymeter index. Conveniently, the watch’s 60 minute/12 hour recorder at 3 o’clock also serves as a second time zone.
