Seamaster Aqua Terra 38 & 34mm Sandstone dial

Post by koimaster » August 4th 2022, 3:00pm

Colour has become a key protagonist in the watch world these days. We’ve seen just about every colour under the sun splashed across dials, and many brands tout a simple change of dial colour as a novelty. Colour can be fun, but it can also get tiring. A vibrant purple dial might be tempting, but after a couple of years might start to look dated. After all, Pantone produces an official colour every year. This year the colour was Very Peri, a rather ugly shade of mauve that is described as a “symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are going through”. A tall order for any colour, but it is an example of how colours are associated with periods of time. Like almost every watch brand, Omega has turned its hand to the paint box and relied on colourful dials to change the mood of its Seamaster Aqua Terra, including a mandatory and very handsome green model in 2020. Released earlier this year, the Aqua Terra turned up with nine different colour options for the dial and some design tweaks to make it slightly dressier. Today we’re going to look at the least colourful and possibly most overlooked member of the 34mm and 38mm Aqua Terras and decide whether the toned-down sandstone dial is the winning member of the lot.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
