A lightweight new timepiece designed specially for sport.
The ergonomic Seamaster Aqua Terra Ultra Light – co-developed with one of golf’s major talents Rory McIlroy – weighs just 55g. The case, caseback and crown are fashioned from an alloy called Gamma Titanium – the material, usually used in the aeronautical industry, which is harder and lighter than conventional titanium. Omega also reduced the amount of material used to create the dial. This process further lightened the weight of the watch without affecting its visual impact.
Another innovation is the telescopic crown, which can be stowed inside the case when not in use. This means there is no disturbance to the movement of an athlete’s hands. Each of the three versions of Ultra Light is presented on a rubber strap, and also comes with an in-play fabric strap. The differences are in color choices: aluminium seconds hand, Seamaster logo, quarter hour indexes and strap stitching are available in red, green or blue.
On the inside, Seamaster Aqua Terra Ultra Light is driven by Omega’s first-ever titanium movement. All the bridges and the main plate are in dark grey ceramised titanium. The manually wound calibre 8928 Titanium features the co-axial escapement; it is a certified master chronometer approved by the METAS, and is resistant to magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss.
