One of the first things that you’ll notice about the Aqua Terra is the exceptional finishing. It has a bracelet and case that expertly combines brushed and polished finishes. It looks fantastic especially when light hits it in the right way. The fine craftsmanship is to be expected from an Omega watch. But this particular model provides the impression that the designer spent some extra time to make sure that all elements are in the right place. You’ll also notice the color scheme of the Aqua Terra is unique compared to other Omega models.

Size and weight

Even the size and the weight of the Aqua Terra is close to being perfect. It doesn’t feel too light or too heavy. It seems that Omega has found the middle ground when it comes to watch shape and size. It’s not something that you would consider a small watch. But it’s also not in the league of the chunky watches that have dominated the fashion watch industry in recent years. Some people may find it on the slim side but it’ll probably depend on how big your hand and wrist are. If you want to continue with the trend of wearing chunky watches then this watch may not be for you.

Perfect for every occasion

Omega is known for creating luxury watches. But the Aqua Terra is a model that is low key enough to be worn on a daily basis. It really is that versatile. So if you’re looking for a luxury watch that is perfect for casual occasions, then the Aqua Terra is a great choice. If you have a limited budget and you just have enough capital for one solid piece, then this watch is perfect for you. This is a watch that appeals to both collectors and people who are just looking for an excellent watch to wear. It may not shout luxury the way a Rolex does but people who know watches will definitely recognize the timepiece on your wrist.

Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra vs. Rolex Datejust

Speaking of Rolex, the Aqua Terra is often compared to the Rolex Datejust. It’s understandable why some people would think that the two watches are similar. They are in the same class and their prices are also in the same ballpark. Not to mention that Omega and Rolex are probably the two biggest names in the world of luxury watches. The Datejust is just slightly more expensive. It’s also more popular. But many experts believe that it’s just a matter of marketing. Rolex is perceived as the more popular brand. Even people who don’t know much about watches are familiar with the Rolex name.

But to watch enthusiasts and collectors, both brands are well-respected. So if Omega wants the Aqua Terra to be as popular as the Datejust, then they just have to do more in terms of marketing. There’s also a ladies’ version of the Aqua Terra and it’s just as well-designed as the men’s version. It’s actually quite hard to find a women’s sports watch that is as well-designed as its male counterpart. Most women’s watches are too cute or too feminine. But the Ladies Aqua Terra is a different story. It has successfully combined feminine elements with a real sports watch design. Omega also has a wide range of Aqua Terra designs for women to choose from, from simple to very elegant. It just may be the best ladies’ luxury sports watch available and many experts agree. It’s definitely a watch women should consider.
