Magnetism is increasingly becoming a problem for luxury watch lovers as magnets become more and more present in our daily lives. Watchmakers regularly have to demagnetise mechanical watches whose performance has been compromised by exposure to magnetic fields.
Omega’s introduction of the new Seamaster Aqua Terra 15,000 Gauss, however, may hold the solution. Omega engineers have developed a new movement which combats the effects of magnetism by using non-ferrous materials, solving the issue of damage caused by magnets.
As well as containing this new magnet-resistant technology, the latest addition to Omega’s popular Aqua Terra collection features the brand’s 41.50mm stainless steel Co-Axial choronometer and has a slightly yellowed lacquered black dial. The new model is the also water-resistant to 150 metres, making it a watch that can cope with all eventualities.
