Omega, as a sponsor of the PGA, is rather excited about the upcoming golfing event. Golf is a serious sport for many people and whether or not you are into the game, you can’t deny the power it has over many people’s lives. For years, the world’s biggest watch brands such as Rolex, Omega, and TAG Heuer have all had serious relationships with golf.
Why am I mentioning golf when discussing fake watches Omega the new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra collection that was founded on dive watch principles? Well, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra has become its de facto dressy sports watch and the model they choose to associate with their golf ambassadors such as Rory McIlroy. In Omega’s latest TV commercial, they focus on Rory playing golf… in what looks like a quasi-desert landscape. On his wrist is the new “golf version” of the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Master Co-Axial with a green seconds hand and and metal bracelet. This version of the Aqua Terra Master Co-Axial is also available with a very nice looking Barenia brown leather strap.
What is Master Co-Axial? If you haven’t been keeping up with all the new Omega news Master Co-Axial is the brand’s new name for their replica watches in-house made movements that combine a Co-Axial escapement with a huge amount of anti-magnetic resistance. Starting in 2014 Omega has begun to include special parts into their in-house movements that are not magnetic. This means that without any special shielding Master Co-Axial movements can resist magnetism up to 15,000 Gauss.
In fact, Omega debuted this technology last year in the Aqua Terra collection with the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra >15,000 Gauss watch (review here). For 2014, the technology was given the proper name of “Master Co-Axial.” That means the movements include both Omega’s Co-Axial escapements as well as the “Master” anti-magnetic parts. The movement names didn’t even change, and in the Aqua Terra collection the calibre 8500 and replica uhren 8520 movements are now Master Co-Axial.
