Swiss watchmaker Omega presented new Omega Seamaster watch collection which is enriched with new Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15,000 gauss model. It is first anti-magnetic mechanical watch which deflects 15,000 gauss of magnetic energy. Debuted in January the previous watch was defective. The defect was that the seconds’ hand stopping when the watch is placed near a magnet, which at times causes up to a 4 minute delay.
That major problem now has been resolved. The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra anti-magnetic watch runs on a co-axial caliber 8508 movement and has a 41.5mm stainless steel co-axial chronometer, a slightly yellowed lacquered black dial, which has been sun-brushed from the center and decorated with the distinctive vertical lines that represent the brand’s Aqua Terra collection and a transparent sapphire crystal glass back that lets you peek into its mechanics.
The watch also boasts a date window at 3 o’clock, water resistance to 150 meters and a matching metallic or a brown leather strap. The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15,000 gauss comes in stores in October, with a four-year warranty, and costs $6,200.
