Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15,000 Gauss Timepiece
Omega watches are widely regarded as pinnacles of engineering and craftsmanship, flaunting exquisite designs and innovative technological capabilities. Following this trend, the brand decided to create another unique and fascinating timepiece, one that would be able to deflect magnetic energy.
The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15,000 Gauss wristwatch can deflect 15,000 gauss of magnetic energy, which makes it Omega’s very first anti-magnetic timepiece. Its creation was not without mishaps, mind you, since the watch was actually declared faulty when it was launched for the first time in London. Apparently, the seconds hand stopped working properly when the timepiece was near a magnet, an unfortunate occurrence that had the potential of causing up to a 4-minute delay.
This was unacceptable of course, and so Omega’s experts worked hard to remedy the situation, first by enveloping the watch in a Faraday case, and later by using a very special metal alloy that came from Apple. This alloy effectively ignores magnetic fields, so it represented the perfect solution for Omega’s problem.
The fully functioning anti-magnetic watch includes a 41.5mm stainless steel co-axial chronometer and a gorgeous lacquered black dial featuring the Aqua Terra collection logo. It is powered by a co-axial caliber 8508 movement that can be observed on the back of the case through a sapphire crystal. The timepiece also comes with a brown leather strap or a metal one according to preference. Other details include a water resistance of 492 feet and a date window placed on 3 o’clock.
The watch will be available in stores starting October, and it will come with a price tag of approximately $6,200. In the meanwhile, you can admire it closely by browsing through the pictures we provided below.
