Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra “GOODPLANET”

Swiss watch brand Omega is extending its hands to charity by supporting the GoodPlanet Foundation through the releases of new Master Co-Axial Timepieces.

OMEGA’s partnership with the GoodPlanet Foundation was announced in 2011. After the success of the inaugural Planet Ocean film, as well as several beneficial conservation projects, OMEGA is commemorating the partnership with the release of several new timepieces.

In 2016, the new documentary TERRA will be launched worldwide, highlighting the fragile relationship between humans and animals. From this film, two new wildlife projects have been established in Botswana and a portion of sales from these watches will help to fund the ongoing work.
The Aqua Terra “GoodPlanet” is built from robust grade 5 titanium, and stands out for its use of the ocean’s colour. This is found on the applied blued indexes, OMEGA logo, and facetted blued hands, all placed upon a lacquered white dial.
Unlike other Aqua Terra models, these watches do not feature the typical teak design. While the watch comes with a polished-brushed grade 5 titanium bracelet, there is also a blue coated nylon fabric strap, perfected with white stitching and a foldover clasp.
In the 43.00 mm model, powered by OMEGA’s Master Co-Axial Calibre 8605, the dial features a GMT 24-hour display with a red tipped GMT hand, allowing the wearer to keep track of international time. This version also includes a date window at 6 o’clock.
The second model, driven by OMEGA’s Master Co-Axial Calibre 8500, has a diameter of 38.50 mm and places its date window at 3 o’clock.

For both these timepieces, the movement is visible through a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal caseback. This reverse side also features engravings that include the unique “GOODPLANET FOUNDATION” in varnished blue.

Presented in a special bamboo box, these stunning timepieces make a wonderful collector’s item and allow the wearer to contribute to the fantastic work being done for our planet.
