Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer Master Chronometer Brown Leather Strap Replica Watches UK

World time watches

At this year’s Baselworld, Omega introduced the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer Master Chronometer Limited Edition fake watches, a totally new Aqua Terra with a 43mm platinum case, in-house METAS-certified Master Chronometer 8939 movement, and a hand-crafted enamel world map on its dial. It serves as a halo piece for the rest of this year’s new Aqua Terra collection, which we broadly covered here. Somewhat surprisingly, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer Master Chronometer is the first worldtimer watch that Omega has produced and one of only a few watches which Omega has elected to case in platinum.

Over the years, the Seamaster Aqua Terra range has been reimagined several times. Omega’s new-for-2017 Seamaster Aqua Terra collection has been updated with more symmetrical cases, a redesigned conical crown, horizontal as opposed to vertical grain on the dial (which Omega calls their “teak concept”), a new six o’clock location for the date, and most notably, the inclusion of the METAS-certified Omega Master Chronometer 8800 or 8900 co-axial calibers. While there are visual cues that help easily identify it as an Aqua Terra family member, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer Master Chronometer is a largely different animal from the rest of the Aqua Terra line.

Platinum dial

Starting with the dial, Omega has combined high-end materials like platinum, 18k gold, and of course the elegant hand-enameled world map to produce something striking. The dial’s outermost portion is produced from “sand-blasted platinum-gold” and is printed with 24 world cities. Color choice for the world destinations is coded, with red representing GMT, black to mean these locations are plus one hour in the summer, and blue to demonstrate locales which do not observe daylight savings.

Inside the outer ring of world destinations, there are 18k yellow gold applied hour markers filled with Super-LumiNova. The inner dial is sapphire crystal with an enameled map of the Northern Hemisphere as seen from the North Pole. Surrounding the world map is a 24-hour register which is also color-coded black and white for day and night. Note that the time zone often represented on worldtimer watches by Paris or Geneva is here represented as Bienne, Switzerland, where Omega is based.

Worldtimer dials Omega replica watches UK can be a cluttered mess, and while the Aqua Terra Master Chronometer has a lot going on, the wealth of information is carefully organized and spread out over enough dial real estate to make the functions actually useful and easy to read. The contrast provided by the gold hands and indices also makes the main time very legible. Upsizing the case to 43mm from the 41mm width of most men’s Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra helped create dial space for all that information but also called for more of that sweet, sweet platinum.

Super diving Omega watches

The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer Master Chronometer’s case is stylistically much the same as its other Aqua Terra relatives with turned lugs, a symmetrical design, and a conical crown, but the larger size and use of platinum elevates the piece overall in both presence and, of course, cost. This being still an Aqua Terra, which is at its core a water-capable sport watch, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer Master Chronometer also has a very respectable 150m of water resistance. While not a professional dive watch number, this should be more than enough for the occasional spilled gin and tonic which can occur whilst pushing millions of dollars worth of chips across the table at your favorite Macau casino, as one might do wearing this watch. At the rear of the platinum case is an obligatory exhibition caseback, allowing visual access to the caliber 8939 within.

Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200M Co-Axial Master Chronometer Replica Watches UK

First produced in 1970 and later relaunched in 2009, the Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200M Co-Axial Master Chronometer replica watches UK – as it is today called – is one of the world’s most unique and, yes, iconic dive watches. It quite remains the Quasimodo character today, even among professional dive watches, which admittedly have a tendency of getting rather lairy-looking from time to time. But there is charm – and a lot of it – to go with the Ploprof and its, well, “developed taste” looks. This new model for 2016 – originally debuted in 2015 in different colors – is lighter, more rugged, and more refined than the Ploprof ever has been; so let’s see how it faired over an extended period of wear.

Here’s a contradiction. One would think that the luxury watch industry – with its self-imposed-luxurious price levels, exquisite movement decorations and delicate case finishing – has in every practical way detached itself from the original notion and practicality of its historical products, the very products it has taken as inspiration and elevated to those aforementioned levels of quality, refinement, and (un-)affordability.
Yet, Omega fake watches lovers around the world (including the one typing this) will forever love a strong connection between modern and historical pieces, and drift towards luxury watches that imply (or, in the case of the Ploprof: scream) “Purpose Built” at them. There is this almost intangible longing for a luxury product that says it can go deeper, faster, harder while being lighter, more robust and reliable than it ever was – even if their true purpose in life is to perform desk diving missions (a most descriptive term for their true use), and, sadly, in some cases to impress yahoos… All that enjoy utmost priority to actual technicalities like smartly releasing helium atoms through levels of decompression from deep-dive military tasks.

So, what’s a 55 by 48 millimeter wide, super weird, form follow function shaped, titanium and ZrO2 ceramic encased, 1.2 kilometer water resistant, anti-magnetic watch with a price tag above $13,000 doing in 2016? What it is doing is ticking all those boxes I mentioned: it mixes luxury levels of refinement with purpose-built looks. This doesn’t mean that it’s for everyone – how could it possibly be, when it’s so over the top? But new models added every year to the Ploprof collection prove that, thankfully, there is demand for this kind of stuff.
