Now that I have added a JLC to my collection, there really is only one other watch that is even more coveted. And, as these things have a way of working out, I actually have a chance to acquire one at an extraordinary price (can't tell you the brand, but the initials are "ALS" ;-)). To make it happen, I've got to make some serious reductions in the present collection. That includes this very recently acquired Omega Aqua Terra in stainless steel and red gold (ref. 231.20.39.21.06.001). I thought it would be my most depended-upon dress watch ... until this new opportunity presented itself. The AT has been discontinued by Omega, as they appear to be doing away with traditional two-tone models (I'm guessing to keep the prices competitive; a two-tone Datejust is north of 12 grand now).

Even though the watch no longer is available from Omega, you still can check out the webpage for this model by going here:
OMEGA Watches: Seamaster Aqua Terra Mid Size Chronometer - Steel-red gold on steel-gold - 231.20.39.21.06.001

I love the 38.5mm size much better in this style watch, since the crystal is so large and makes the watch appear larger. I like it so much, in fact, that I have been wearing my Rolex Datejust II sporadically, since its 41mm size has been nagging me as too big. This is my third AT and the second with the grey teak dial. While I really liked the look of the opaline silver teak, the grey teak is elevated to a whole new level when accented with red gold. No photo does it justice; it has to be seen to fully appreciate it. Bottom line: this is a distinguished looking dress watch that can be as sporty as you like. And the red gold, having a higher bronze content, is much more resistant to scratches than yellow gold ... and, even better, is much more understated than yellow gold.


The watch has a couple of minor scuffs on the bezel. The bracelet is almost free of any scuff marks, and overall the watch is in superb condition. The photos accurately reflect the condition of the watch. The bracelet has all links - 16 whole links and 2 "half" links. The watch includes all boxes and papers.

No trade offers, please. I'm asking only $5,999, or best reasonable offer *, including shipping via USPS insured Priority Mail (CONUS only; Alaska & Hawaii $25 extra). Payment by PayPal (no fees to buyer) or by bank wire✦.

I have sold many watches here on WUS and many more on my WatchWerx Amazon Storefront. It's also worth noting that I have sold multiple watches to some WUS members - four to one and three to another. No one would keep coming back if they did not think they were getting top value for their watch dollar. Click on the links below to check out some of my positive feedback:

* SHIPPING NOTE: Sorry, no international sales are available on this item - USA only. All shipments MUST be to a PayPal-verified physical address - no PO boxes, please.

BANK WIRE NOTE: Onlybank wires from a USA-based bank that is an acceptable correspondent for my bank will be considered. The transfer must be from an account in the buyer's name to my account. No overpayments or third-party involvement will be allowed. The draft must be ratified by the sending bank, following receipt by my bank, before the watch can be shipped. Shipment must be to a USA physical address ... no PO boxes or mail drops. On wire transfers, I require the shipment to be signed for by the buyer, not an agent or relative. This is for the protection of the buyer more than for me, and is non-negotiable.

And now, without further delay, some photos:
