Omega Seamaster Ladies Automatic/Quartz Watch Review: Aqua Terra, Planet Ocean, 300 M

Updated on January 6, 2015

Seamaster Ladies

Similar to Speedmaster Ladies', Omega Seamaster feminine collection focuses mostly on jewelry, casual, and fashion oriented designs.

The professional marine features – enhanced water resistance, complicated automatic calibers, chrono functions – have been covered extensively (and exhaustively) by the men's line; women's 300 M Quartz, which provides a part of that package, constitutes more of an exception in that regard (though Planet Ocean does offer a few chronographs).

Stainless steel and red and yellow gold determine the character of the Automatic watches, rendering them either single or two-tone. The completely golden pieces, especially when encrusted with diamonds, become genuine jewelry timepieces, not rivalling but getting quite close to the extravagant jewelry items Omega manufacture for the Specialties collection.

The main difference between the two lies in the Seamaster more orthodox approach – the stones appear strictly on the bezel and as indices on the dials.

Jewelry and Diamonds

Primary materials decorating the Seamaster Ladies comprise diamonds, gold, and mother-of-pearl (the latter two reserved for automatic watches) – essentially the same three materials employed in women's Speedmaster.

Interestingly, the fashion inspired liberties taken in Constellation Ladies do not recur here: marine professional roots are too strong to allow too much play with color and design. Instead, classic visuals authoritatively determine the restrained aesthetic of this brand division.

Specs

The silverized or lacquered dials will usually display a date aperture at three o'clock, and carry a central seconds (Planet Ocean models) hand reminiscent of the minutes hand in Ulysse Nardin Marine Chronometers. Numerals are rarely used, appearing either as small minutes markers near the edge of the face, an occasional 12 o'clock indicator, or ruling the bezel and subdials – golden inlays, diamonds, or luminescent signs create the chief junctions of the main grid.

Timers come equipped with metallic bracelets (three or five rows), or black, white, or orange leather straps. Self-winding movements reserve power for up to fifty two hours; quartz operates for up to 20 months. Additional features that became a standard for almost all Omega watches include domed sapphire crystal, water resistance (enhanced to 300 meters in the professional 300 M line).
