Exclusive from Geneva: The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra total antimagnetic watch

I am in Geneva where Omega just presented a new total antimagnetic watch. The Seamaster Aqua Terra has no inner soft iron case, Omega uses a punch of antimagnetic materials to protect the movement.

This are the very first pictures of the watch presented today here in Geneva. As you can see the Seamaster has a see-through bottom and a normal date function. The new calibre is called “8508” and it is a total antimagnetic mechanical movement.

On the dial the watch indicates 15.000 Gauss, but the watch resists much more than this. Omega was just not able to measure more than 15.000 Gauss. The watch will cost 5.900 CHF including taxes.

As soon I am back in my office tonight I will put the whole story together, including some amazing first photographs from the new Seamaster, two videos showing some very interesting details and an exclusive interview with Jean-Claude Monachon, the Omega Vice President and head of product developement.

PLEASE come back later and have a look at my full reportage…

Here are the first pictures of the new antimagnetic Omega Seamster Aqua Terra. To enlarge the pictures just click on them …
