Omega has given its Seamasters a new look that evokes the allure of boundless oceans. Each of the 11 new Summer Blue watches features a unique blue dial, with tones that vary depending on the depth rating. For example, the models rated for 150 meters have lighter shades of blue while the Ploprof and Ultra-Deep are darker to reflect the extreme depths they can reach. This is accomplished by applying multiple layers of varnish.
Seamaster Aqua Terra Aqua Blue
The Seamaster Aqua Terra typically referred to as simply ‘Aqua Terra,’ eschews tool-watch accouterments like rotating divers’ bezels in favor of a clean aesthetic that calls to mind the teak deck of luxury yachts. This 41mm model is a perfect example, featuring symmetrical cases and brushed dials with a pattern that suggests the lines of a sailboat.
Its case back displays the trident of Poseidon and two seahorses, reflecting the collection’s strong maritime heritage. Inside, a Master Chronometer Caliber 8900 stores 60 hours of power reserve behind arabesque Geneva stripes.
Seamaster Aqua Terra Planet Ocean
The Seamaster Planet Ocean series has grown to be one of Omega’s biggest sellers, owing much to its versatile styling and state-of-the-art movements. It’s the kind of collection that can easily be worn in casual settings as well as on a dive.
Its latest addition is a 38 mm model with sailboat indexes and a case and bracelet made from brushed and polished stainless steel with a design reminiscent of the teak deck of luxury yachts. It is driven by a Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8900 and has new Summer Blue dials that have been sun-brushed and lacquered with a gradient finish, complemented by light blue Super-LumiNova hands and indexes.
Seamaster Planet Ocean
Omega’s most ocean-tested model is also its most expensive. Its stainless steel case and bracelet, as well as its black zirconium oxide ceramic dial, create a strikingly elegant look.
This year, the Planet Ocean receives a summery color update that gives it cohesion across its many styles. Models with lower water resistance feature lighter tones, while those designed for hardcore diving boast darker hues reminiscent of the ocean’s dark depths. The resulting range of models is as durable as they are handsome.
Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra-Deep
Omega’s newest deep sea diver is the Ultra-Deep, a titanium variant of their dive watch that made it to the Mariana Trench’s Challenger Deep (just not quite to the record-breaking depth of 10,935m). It also uses O-MegaSteel, a new stainless steel alloy crafted by pressure electrolytic slag remelting.
The new model is a serious-mean-business kind of watch, but it still has a playful element. On the dial, there’s a message that appears only in darkness — ‘Omega Was Here!’
Seamaster Planet Ocean World Time
Probably the most serious of all Seamaster Summer Blue models, this is one designed to go anywhere. It combines 600 meters of water resistance with the external helium escape valve that most mechanical divers only use for extra cred.
Like all of the other watches, this Planet Ocean has a dial that reflects its depth rating. The Aqua Terras have light gradients while the Ploprof and Ultra Deep have darker ones. The hands and markers are filled with light blue Super-LumiNova.
Seamaster Planet Ocean Aqua Terra
Omega is celebrating the 75th anniversary of its Seamaster line with a major release. The new suite includes 11 watches spread across the seven different collections that make up the Seamaster lineup.
Summer Blue evokes the allure of the pristine ocean on a perfect day. It serves as the base colour for nearly all dials in the collection, complemented by layers of varnish applied either carefully or free-flowing depending on the desired effect.
Seamaster Planet Ocean World Timer
The World Timer uses a sapphire world map to display GMT plus one (a nod to Geneva, the city where Omega is based). At night, the world time disc displays the cities in blue to show the current local time.
A remarkable conceit runs throughout this collection. The dial color darkens as the watches get deeper in their respective water-resistant ratings. The Aqua Terra models, rated to 150 meters, have lighter dials while the Ploprof and Ultra-Deep models sport darker gradients.
