In 1969, OMEGA faced the challenges of humankind’s first voyage to the Moon. Today, it is on Earth that the brand faces its latest challenge, this time against the effects of magnetism. Produced by modern technology such as phones and laptops, everyday magnetism can permanently affect the performance of a mechanical watch.
The Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15,000 GAUSS was the first watch fitted with the OMEGA Co‑Axial calibre 8508, which can resist magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss. This pioneering feat set the standard within the Swiss watch industry and its innovation has now extended through almost all of OMEGA’s wristwatch collections.
This anti‑magnetic luxury watch uses non‑ferrous materials inside the watch movement, ensuring that its precision is not affected. With a stainless steel case and bracelet, or a brown leather strap, the chronometer certified watch also incorporates the revolutionary Co‑Axial escapement for long‑lasting reliability.
Along with its exceptional design, the quality timepiece is a part of the famous Aqua Terra collection, which perfectly balances the sophistication of a dress watch, with the rugged ocean spirit of a sports watch.
