Introduction

While their dive watches and chronographs are typically the first of Omega’s watches that come to mind, Omega’s history as a watchmaker is incredibly diverse with large ranges of dress watches offered alongside those tool watches. First launched in 2002 as an expansion of Omega’s Seamaster 120 collection, the Seamaster Aqua Terra collection was created as a means to speak to the brand’s classical DNA while appealing to the Seamaster’s rugged dive watch design. As a result, the Aqua Terra features a hybrid design that is incredibly versatile. Often cased in stainless steel, the Aqua Terra features a slightly more traditional design language with fixed smooth bezels, decorated dials and a date function. However, in a bid to speak to the Seamaster’s heritage, the Aqua Terra also features 150m of water resistance, much like the ref. 2803.33.37 that we have here. Added to the collection in 2003, the ref. 2803.33.37 is powered by Omega’s automatic Co-Axial cal. 2500 movement, which is far more efficient than traditional lever escapements. With its crisp white dial and blued steel hands and hour markers, the ref. 2803.33.37 is a visually striking watch deserving of the industry shaking Co-Axial movement that resides within its 39.2mm stainless steel case.

Our Perspective

A horologically impressive watch that blends the Seamaster's rugged DNA with a classical design, the ref. 2803.33 is a well-balanced timepiece that will have no trouble dealing with anything that may be thrown at it.
