Although this watch is a special edition, this review (at least internally) applies to all the rest of the Omega Aqua Terra 150m GMTs in the series that run on the same movement.The only major difference will be purely aesthetic.
At first glance, the Aqua Terra GMT is an aesthetically pleasing watch, to say the least, with a well balanced design and tapered hour markers. As with other models in the collection, the hour markers are almost like a slender triangle with a two-tone design that incorporates luminous materials.
The hour, minute and second hands are positioned above the GMT hands and feature luminescent fills for maximum visibility in low light conditions. The triangular tip of the GMT hands also contains some luminous material. The GMT hand is a short, red, arrow-shaped pointer that points to the GMT track in the center of the dial. Because it is 24-hour, GMT sweeps around the dial only once every 24 hours, while the ordinary hour hand rotates around the dial twice a day. Most GMT/Double Time watches don’t work this way, and that’s what makes them so unique.
Most models in the collection are available on a black alligator leather strap with either a steel bracelet or an 18kt rose gold bracelet. This model is the Aqua Terra GMT GoodPlanet Special Edition, a tribute to the GoodPlanet Foundation and the great work they do.
The case is 43mm long and combines polished and brushed finishes. The fixed bezel has a polished surface and the front of the lugs are engraved with a vertical brushed finish, but the bevelled side has a polished finish. The sides of the case have brushed surfaces. The winding crown and caseback are also beautifully polished.
The caseback has a transparent sapphire crystal and the watch is powered by the automatic cheap OMEGA in-house movement 8605. this self-winding movement is a 3.5 Hz movement that vibrates at 25,200 vph and contains 38 jewels. It is incredibly resistant to magnetic fields of up to 15,000 gauss.

Omega uses a hairspring made of Si14, which is magnetoresistive silicon. It also uses OMEGA’s Co-Axial escapement. The movement is beautifully decorated with a lovely vine pattern finish.
The Aqua Terra is a staple of the Seamaster collection. It’s a more casual, water-resistant watch that isn’t suitable for any professional diving per se, but is great for light swimming and can be worn in the shower.
The model reference number is 18.104.22.168.04.001 and features a 43mm titanium case with an external blue fabric strap and white stitching. A soft calfskin leather lining is stitched to the inside of the strap with blue stitching and a push-button deployment (folding) clasp secures the strap.
All in all, this watch is a great choice for those who need to wear a watch every day and has a second time zone function, especially for those who travel or work between two different time zones and need to be reminded of the time it is in a secondary position.
