    An addition to the color scheme of Rolex Yacht-Master 40 collection, this timepiece appeals to both men and women, whether in an elegant yacht club or on the deck of a yacht, with its steel and 18 ct Everose gold case and chocolate dial. The in-house, COSC-certified calibre 3135 provides the beating heart.

    Dressier than its cousin Planet Ocean, the Aqua Terra looks handsome with the applied blue indexes and hands on a lacquered white dial. The timepiece is powered by the in-house Master Co-Axial 8500 and offers a 60-hour power reserve. The watch is representative of Omegas focus on wildlife conservation in tandem with the GoodPlanet Foundation. Part of the proceeds from the collection will go towards the funding of conservation efforts. The 38.5 mm model is priced at 7,000 Swiss francs; the 43 mm model at 9,000 Swiss francs.
