We just caught wind of a brand-new watch from Omega.  Called the Seamaster Aqua Terra GMT, this is actually a pre-Basel announcement.  It is the very first co-axial Omega to be fitted with a GMT hand (a complication we truly adore).

Housed in a 43mm case in your choice of 18 Ct red gold or stainless steel or, in a bicolor version in 18 Ct red gold and stainless steel, the Aqua Terra GMT uses the teaked dial pattern that we’ve come to expect in this collection, and all applied markers are 18ct white gold.  Even the GMT hand is white gold, with a bright red fill.  The watch is available with either a bracelet in the same metal as the watch case or with a black, brown or blue leather strap.

This watch uses the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8605/8615, the first with a GMT function, and a welcome addition to the Aqua Terra line. No word on pricing or availability, but since this is officially a Basel release, probably won’t be available for a while.
