Omega Aqua Terra 2503.33.00

Until I saw a Broadarrow with white dial and blue hands & markers, the Omega thing hadn’t really kicked in for me. Now, though, there are many I’d like to add to my collection, and top of that list is probably a nice vintage SMP.  However, the ball has well and truly started rolling with this beautiful (and hard to find) 2503.33.00.

It features Omega’s revolutionary co-axial escapement on their 2500 calibre movement, with a rhodium-plated finish. The really stunning thing about this watch, though, is the incredible blue of the  applied markers and hands… at times it can be barely noticeable, but  at others – particularly in daylight and at the right angle – the watch is just a joy to behold.

It’s such a perfect design, looking dressy with the right clothing but also purposeful and casual when required. I think Omega made a big mistake in discontinuing this one – I have a queue of people who want to take it off my hands but they’ll be waiting a long, long time…
