    OMEGA Watches: Seamaster Aqua Terra Quartz - Steel on steel - 231.10.39.61.02.001

    I think it just comes down to individual designs. They could just make it standard across the board, but some models actually benefit from not having an applied logo, or in other words, they look better with a printed logo. The original SMP Bond, the 2531.80 is a good example of such a watch.
    Dixan,

    Neither one of the watches you linked to have the "Omega" applied logo, only the "Ω". The first model I actually own, so I am positive of this. I will take it a step further and say this only applies to mechanical watches and not quartz, despite some of the latter having a COSC designation. The Bond SMP you referenced is a perfect example of this as the mechanical does in fact of have applied logo. Now I'm not saying this makes what I said correct as it is only speculation on my part. And I agree with you that some models simply look better with a painted logo, ala the Railmaster or EB SMP, which are both chronometers. Whether this is a design aesthetic is anyone's guess, but I will bet only chronometers get that applied "Omega".

    After seeing these gorgeous pictures of the older generation Aqua Terra and Railmaster, I have the same wish as always: I hope Omega will reintroduce a classic dressy Seamaster, based on 8500, and without the "teak" dial. Just a normal flat dial, a tad bit glossy, with nice applied details of the hour indices and Omega logo + wording.
    Like a modern day reincarnation of the 60's Seamaster.

    Logo = Omega symbol

    Word mark = "OMEGA"

    That's what I've always meant anyway.

    For me, it's more than just the teak dial that needs to be changed, if they want to re-capture the spirit of the original AT and RM. Although I really like the current 8500 AT as its own design, overall I still prefer the original AT/RM, and feel they are more elegant in comparison. Specifically, I prefer not only the original, simpler dials, but also the original watches' sharper hands and indices. I'm just not one hundred percent sold on the newer watches' blunt hands and indices. They're a bit too heavy and chunky to me. Together with the teak dial, those details give the current ATs a much more casual feel, IMO. Again, very handsome designs in their own right, but to me, they feel less like newer versions of the same line, and more like stand alone designs.


    Anyway, more photos, please!

    Okay, here's my 36mm 2504.50 SuperBlack dialled 1st Gen AquaTerra.



    This dial is impossible (for me) to take a decent and truly representative photo of it. But that doesn't stop me from trying.
    Here's the Cal 2500 purring along inside it.



    And sometimes, Mother Nature steps in and does the lighting. And the stars align and I take a lucky shot.



    Like M4tt's always said, this is a true "Gentleman's Watch".

    ignore the hair on the crystal :)









    to be honest, with 20/20 hindsight, I should probably have got the next size down, but this certainly has a presence :)
