Co-Axial: Omega Seamaster GMT Chronograph
June 23, 2009
Omega recently introduced the Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial GMT Chronograph. It features a 44mm diameter case, in either stainless steel or 18k red gold. The case is both polished and brushed. It is water-resistant to 150 meters. The sapphire crystal is domed with a double anti-reflective treatment. Inside is a co-axial calibre 3603 COSC-certified column wheel chronograph movement.
The red gold model comes with a choice of a matching 18k red gold bracelet with OMEGA's patented screw-and pin system and a safety clasp or with a brown alligator strap integrated in the case. The stainless steel watch is delivered either with a black "soft-touch" integrated alligator strap or with a screw-and-pin bracelet in stainless steel.
The Seamaster's bi-directional rotating GMT bezel is mounted with a ring coated with black PVD and scaled to 24 hours, which allows the tracking of three separate time zones. Home time is displayed through the central hour hand, a 2nd hour hand (GMT) displays a second time zone. And a 3rd time zone can be calculated with the two-way 24-hour bezel.
