Omega has released several new Seamaster Planet Ocean watches for Baselworld 2016, but this isn’t to say that the dressier Aqua Terra line is being left out. In fact, two new Omega Watches Year Manufacturer Replica Seamaster Aqua Terra watches are released this year. What is of note, however, is that a METAS Certified Master Chronometer-rated movement is not yet available in the Aqua Terra watches. Even so, the new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra GoodPlanet will come in a 38.5mm version as well as a larger 43mm GMT model, and they look handsome as ever.
What started as a conservation effort with the 2012 documentary film Planet Ocean, has now grown to include a new extension aimed at highlighting the fragile relations that we humans have with the animal kingdom. With the upcoming film, Terra, the focus is now on two new wildlife conservation efforts in Botswana and a portion of the proceeds from this watch collection will go towards funding these works.
Starting with a sturdy, grade 5 titanium 38.5mm body, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra GoodPlanet is certainly nautically themed, and the applied blue indexes are gorgeous. The white lacquered dial is extremely clean, and the facetted blue hands are reminiscent of a Dauphine styling. The movement is visible through the case back which holds a domed sapphire crystal. Since this is a special edition, it is also engraved with a varnished blue “GoodPlanet Foundation.”
This Omega Watches Goldsmiths Replica Seamaster Aqua Terra GoodPlanet is powered by a Master Co-Axial 8500, a familiar albeit increasingly dated movement. The 8500 boasts 26 jewels and runs at 25,200 vph (3.5Hz) and has a 60-hour power reserve. The antimagnetic properties of the Master Co-Axial series ensure a resistance of 15,000 gauss. In regards to water resistance, we are looking at 150M.
Brands are experimenting with the world of e-commerce in different ways such as limited editions available online only – like this Panerai Luminor Submersible Automatic Acciaio PAM731 “E-Commerce Micro-Edition,” for example. Chairman of this luxury brand holding group Richemont (that owns Panerai) Johann Rupert lately also hinted at further such action in the near future with statement that, moving forward, “a prime area of focus will be matching supply with end customer requirement. “E-commerce is hard for recognized luxury watch manufacturers not because they’re stubbornly stuck in a few past century when clockwork was cutting-edge technology, but since they’re heavily invested – fiscally, and in terms of their carefully curated images – in a sales and distribution system that is being undercut by third party online sales. The slow move toward e-commerce in addition to lowering costs can be regarded as a response to a few years of falling profits, however they are steps we’ve argued for on aBlogtoWatch.Omega’s brand new e-commerce is not some separate site or even section, and instead the brand’s US site (omegawatches.com/en-us/) will now have “Add To Basket” buttons and the ability to proceed to checkout… the common online shopping experience we have come to know and enjoy, with free shipping, familiar forms of payment, etc.. The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean “Michael Phelps” Limited Edition watch for the American athlete has been offered exclusively online within boosting the announcement. If you’re out of the United States, you will understand the disclaimer: “Please note that shipping is limited to USA addresses only. To purchase an OMEGA watch outside of the USA, please find your closest boutique with our store locator. “As somebody that has been closely observing the business activities of Omega for the last few decades, their move into e-commerce (restricted to the USA for now, or otherwise) does not surprise me. Omega may not be first into the game, but they properly realized that a more controlled distribution for watches is one of the vital things the luxury watch business wants so as to return economical stability.
The larger Omega Watches 50 Years Ago Replica Seamaster Aqua Terra GoodPlanet GMT model is 43mm wide and features the Omega Master Co-Axial Calibre 8605 movement. This movement has 38 jewels and also operates at 24,200 vph (3.5Hz) with a 60-hour power reserve. The dial shares similar features with the smaller version, but includes a GMT hand with an applied red aluminum tip.
There is a classy, understated appeal with these watches and the expected ocean theme is appropriate and well-executed. What we’re sure of now is that fans are going to expect the newer movements in the Aqua Terra line as well. Price on the smaller Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra GoodPlanet watch is 7,000 CHF and price for the GMT version is 9,000 CHF. omegawatches.com
