In 2017 a new version of the Aqua Terra was released, providing with a new dial that features a horizontal pattern of grooves of varying width - the so-called teak pattern, supposedly inspired by the wooden decks of luxury sailboats.

The visual balance of the watch got improved with a symmetrical case design and a date window moved to the 6 o'clock position.

This new model is available on steel bracelet, leather strap and a very cool looking rubber strap.

Under the hood, a new movement will be found: the Omega calibre 8900 powers 41mm models whereas the calibre 8800 is in the 38mm diameter models.

Both movements are anti-magnetic up to 15000 Gauss, however some differences between those movements can be found:

  • The 8900 movement is higher and wider than the 8800.
  • The 8800 movement has a slightly smaller power reserve of 55hours compared to 60hours for the 8900.
  • The 8900 has a jumping hour hand, allowing you to very quickly change time zones without affecting the minute hands.

Moreover the 8800 and 8900 movements undergoes a certification process stricter than the COSC certification: the METAS certification, which is granted by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology.
