The headlines this week have been full of Omega's latest Aqua Terra, the very matt, very lightweight Omega Aqua Terra Ultra Light. The major selling point has been its light weight of 55 grams, a new alloy and its fancy new disappearing crown trick. It's made with golf in mind, but the potential is more than that. I was pretty excited by this release, until I caught wind of the price, which is just under $50K USD.* Now, sometime T+T writer Justin has written a punchy analysis of this piece (and whether it lives up to the hype and the sticker price) over at Watchuseek well worth a read. When all is said and done, though, I can't wait to try it on.* Read the full story here.*
