My first impression of the new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra XXL Small Seconds Limited Edition Watch is that at first glance I would not have guessed it to be crafted by Omega, but perhaps by A.Lange and Sohne. With a much more classic style, higly elegant hands and stylized numeral hour markers, Omega has created a timepiece that I think may force some to take a second look at the brand who's previous creations could be veiwed as second-best to high-end brands such as Patek Phillipe and Vacheron Constantine.

Available in 18K rose and white gold the over-sized case is an impressive 49.2 millimeters in diameter. The elegant dial is crafted from a beautiful white enamel on two levels. One of my favorite aspects of the Aqua Terra timepiece are the blue steel hands featuring laser-cut vintage Omega logos, patented by the brand back in 1924. And as the name indicates the dial has a small seconds sub-dial made from applied sterling (950) silver at the 6 o'clock position. The rose gold version is completed by a brown alligator leather strap fitted with a polished rose gold buckle. The white gold version is completed by a black alligator leather strap fitted with a polished white gold buckle.

The Seamaster Aqua Terra XXL Small Seconds is a limited Edition watch issued in a small number of just 88 pieces for each version. Each timepiece is powered by an officially certified chronometer movement - calibre 2211. Superb construction allows the timepieces a 150-meter water-resistance.
