[Video] The Perfect Summer Watch: Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Small Seconds In Beige
Timeless watches don’t have to be boring, no! They can even be fashionable. Such is the case with the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M Co-Axial Master Chronometer Small Seconds 41 MM, ref. 126.96.36.199.02.005.
Spring and summer are just around the corner. Our mood brightens, and the desire to reflect our upbeat demeanor comes with it. At least that is the case with me. I always get the urge around springtime to put some bright and colorful watches on my wrist. However, wearing a bright statement piece can also lose its luster quickly. With such a strong presence, such a watch can grow tiresome before you know it. When that happens, it’s good to have a watch that balances classic styling and vitality perfectly. Meet the beige Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Small Seconds. It is fresh, yet classic. Lighthearted, yet also serious. Fashionable, yet timeless.
Just like Lex, I wasn’t immediately won over by this new collection of Seamaster Aqua Terra watches with a small seconds sub-dial. I was always a fan of the Seamaster Aqua Terra collection, so at first sight, that new dial layout seemed rather cluttered to me. I still feel that way about some versions, yet this beige specimen has managed to get my attention and change my mind.
It helps, of course, that this is still a Seamaster Aqua Terra at heart. That means the specs are as rock-solid as they get. Omega’s self-winding in-house Co-Axial Master Chronometer caliber 8916 offers the signature magnetism-resistance of over 15,000 gauss. Is certified by METAS and housed in a 150m water-resistant case. Beach to boardroom? Well, maybe not quite. Let’s say if you are a fashion-forward kind of person, you can give it a shot. But is the watch versatile and a lot of fun? You bet.
But that’s enough from me. Let Lex tell you everything else you need to know in the video and tag along on his journey to “embrace the beige”.
