I so want to add a new Omega to the collection and I am very excited about the new movements they have been pushing. I got a nice look at the new Seamaster co-axial master 300 they introduced at the Basel show this year, what a great homage to the original from 1957. if you are unfamiliar go here:The Omega Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial | How to be Swell


BUT Last year they introduced the Aqua Terra 15000 Gauss which is also quite an attractive watch as well, the thing I like is the unique look of the Aqua Terra and the small highlights they did to it to make it stand out as anti magnetic. Check this one out here:Omega Aqua Terra 15000 Gauss | How to be Swell

The thing I am attracted to is the calibre 8400, which is found in both watches. I like the idea that the AT was the first Omega to have this movement you know from a collectability standpoint, but the Seamaster is an absolutely beautiful watch, and a great remake of a classic. thoughts? which do you guys prefer?

In the interest of full disclosure, I already own a Seamaster 300 (Bond) so I don't reeeaaaly need another Seamaster, but lets be honest, collecting watches is never a matter of need. lol.

AT. Date window.

I like the collectible aspect of the black-and-yellow version, but I'd only get it as an addition to a collection. If I wanted it to be my main watch, I'd most likely wait for the antimagnetic version of one of the "normal" models later this year.

Seamaster 300 gets my vote. It is essentially the 2nd gen 15000 Gauss. It is the latest in Omega movement technology.

Since i already have a SMP 300, i would go for the AT 15,000 Gauss, i would also pick the version with the black and yellow second hand and dial highlights...I also find that anti-magnetic feature more useful compared to water resistance.

Not...even...close IMO. The Seamaster 300. Prefer the vintage design; I also don't like the yellow of the gauss and lack of a date window. The lack of a date window makes the AT a little less unique design wise IMO. I own the old AT Skyfall ( love the date window) and would never "go back" to a modern AT without the date window.
