With its new model the watch manufacture OMEGA presents a watch that especially focuses on its light weight and its comfort during wearing – features that are particularly emphazising the model’s sporty character. Behind the development of this new Master Chronometer was one of golf’s major talents: Rory McIlroy. The OMEGA ambassador helped the product development team to create a watch that ideally fits the needs of athletes.
Worn with the sporty fabric strap this model only weighs 55 gramm. The case, caseback and crown are made of an alloy called Gamma Titanium – a material that is used in the aeronautical industry due to its very resistant properties and is harder and lighter than conventional titanium. The grade 5 titanium dial features stripes in a negative relief, which underline the watch’s sporty look. Also here OMEGA focused on reducing the weight by minimizing the material used for the dial without interfering with its visual impact. As well the watch is equipped with a telescopic crown, which can be stowed inside the case when not in use. This ergonomic feature means there is no disturbance to the movement of an athlete’s hands during the game.
The Seamaster Aqua Terra “Ultra Light” is presented on a rubber strap, and also comes with an in-play fabric strap for perfect comfort when required. Designed for preventing glare from the sun, OMEGA’s matt finished Aqua Terra makes bold use of colour on the aluminium seconds hand, Seamaster logo, quarter hour indexes and strap stitching.
On the inside, this model is driven by OMEGA’s first- ever titanium movement. All the bridges and the main plate are in ceramised titanium, which means there’s less friction between the components and it gives the movement this special dark grey colour. The calibre 8928 Titanium is a manual-winding calibre with Co-Axial escapement. As a certified Master Chronometer approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), the Calibre 8928 Titanium is resistant to magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss. The model has a power reserve of 72 hours.
