OMEGA's innovative new timepiece designed especially for sport

In sport, every athlete looks for the advantage that will raise their game. This is the same approach that OMEGA has taken to the new Seamaster Aqua Terra “Ultra Light”. As the name suggests, this ingenious sports watch is designed for less weight and more comfort during play. To achieve that goal, every feature has been creatively rethought, resulting in a new edge of watchmaking innovation. 

Developed with OMEGA's own leading athlete   

Behind the development of OMEGA's latest Master Chronometer was one of golf's major talents: Rory McIlroy. The OMEGA ambassador helped the product development team to create a watch perfectly suited to the needs of athletes. 

“I'm proud to have played a role in the development of OMEGA's new lightweight sports watch. I know what an athlete needs in a watch and through collaboration with OMEGA we were able to modify the timepiece. The new “Ultra Light” is an absolute pleasure to wear, whatever sport you play.”  - Rory McIlroy, OMEGA golf ambassador

Light yet tough   

When presented on its sporty fabric strap, the ergonomic “Ultra Light” weighs just 55g. The case, caseback and crown are fashioned from an alloy called Gamma Titanium – a first for OMEGA. The unique material, used in the aeronautical industry due to its very resistant properties, is harder and lighter than conventional titanium. Thanks to careful research and trial, OMEGA also reduced the amount of material used to create the dial. This process further lightened the weight of the watch without affecting its visual impact.

A push-in crown for comfort  

Another first for OMEGA is the telescopic crown, which can be stowed inside the case when not in use. This ergonomic feature means there is no disturbance to the movement of an athlete's hands while playing their game.

Red, green or blue   

Each “Ultra Light” is presented on a rubber strap, and also comes with an in-play fabric strap for perfect comfort when required. Designed for preventing glare from the sun, OMEGA's matt finished Aqua Terra makes bold use of colour on the aluminium seconds hand, Seamaster logo, quarter hour indexes and strap stitching. 

Three colour choices are available: red, green or blue.

Master Chronometer Power 

Shedding the weight did not reduce the watch's precision or performance. In fact, the timepiece comes with OMEGA's full 5-year warranty. On the inside, the “Ultra Light” is driven by OMEGA's first-ever titanium movement. All the bridges and the main plate are in ceramised titanium, which means there's less friction between the components and it gives the movement this special dark grey colour.

Calibre 8928 Titanium is a manual-winding calibre with Co-Axial escapement. As a certified Master Chronometer approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), the Calibre 8928 Titanium is resistant to magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss. Much like OMEGA's sporting ambassadors, it has proven its worth under the toughest conditions.
