Well if anyone should appreciate this it should be you guys. The Aqua Terra is one of my all time favourites. I've flipped quite a few in my days of unquenchable curiosity and to be among one of those I came back to is something special. This watch is now a pillar in my collection and I'm not sure I'll be able to part with it; That says something more.
The Aqua Terra fills a great niche. Its timeless and classy yet just rugged enough to move from the clinic or board room to streets if you desire. It can take a dunk in the sink or wash the car and yet be worn the same evening with a tux. The all in one nature of this watch is further facilitated by its 20mm lugs. I get constantly renewed appreciation when it shows its versatility on a new strap. It can transform to the occasion from bracelet to hide or any other of the myriad strap choices that complement it. The blue indices contrasted on a cream dial are both bold and sophisticated simultaneously offering depth and liveliness. The mixed finishes, raised indices and unique angles (i.e. lug horns) all exude superior workmanship and design. Even the movement finishing is a pleasure to regard. This one is a keeper for me...
