First unveiled earlier this year, Omega‘s upcoming Seamaster Aqua Terra 15,000 Gauss is set to launch soon in the United States and features the world’s first truly anti-magnetic movement. Traditionally, anti-magnetic watches have utilized a soft iron cage around the movement to protect it from the interference created by magnetic fields. The new Seamaster Aqua Terra 15,000 Gauss, however, is itself anti-magnetic thanks to years of research and development and technology created by Omega in conjunction with ETA and ASULAB – thus allowing for the absence of the usual iron cage and the appearance of the movement beneath the timepiece’s sapphire caseback. HODINKEE recently sat down with Omega president Stephen Urquhart, Omega vice president and Head of Product Development J.C. Monachon, and ASULAB CEO Michel Willemin for a closer look at the industry-changing creation.
