Any new collection from Omega is a cause for celebration, and the Seamaster Summer Blue collection is no exception. Recently, the #FeldmarFam visited Omega’s launch event in La Jolla, CA to go hands-on with all 11 references from the stunning collection. A tribute to the 75th Anniversary of Omega’s iconic, revolutionary diving watch, the Seamaster, each watch in this new collection shares something else truly special—a color. Summer Blue, to be exact. This glistening color varies in depth and intensity depending on the water resistance of the Seamaster model, from Aqua Terra to Ultra Deep, achieved with layers of lacquer on the dial. Let’s dive in, and meet these extraordinary timepieces.
Summer Blue – An Inspired Collection
For many collectors, the Seamaster is the world’s quintessential dive watch. Adorning the wrists of figures from Prince William to 007, the collection has established itself as one of the most beloved divers today. Over three-quarters of a century, the Seamaster has taken on new life in dressy forms like the Aqua Terra, heritage styles like the Seamaster 300, and ultra-rugged variants like the PloProf and Planet Ocean. No matter if you’re taking a dip in the pool or setting diving world records, there is a Seamaster that’s up for the challenge. For the Summer Blue collection, Omega has crafted dials that start off as very light blue and progress to near-black, correlating with the watch’s depth rating. By simulating the way light permeates water, getting darker with depth, Omega has created a collection that is at home beneath the waves.
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra “Summer Blue” 38mm
The original 1957 Seamaster was justly acclaimed for its clean, harmonious design aesthetic. The Aqua Terra 38mm pays homage to that classic watch, with a pleasingly symmetrical case crafted of stainless steel, and a matching brushed and polished stainless steel bracelet. The dial, in sunburst summer blue, features light blue Super-LumiNova rhodium-plated hands, along with light blue Super-LumiNova sailboat-shaped indexes. The stunning look is paired with a world-class METAS-certified Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8800 movement, for unparalleled precision. Water resistant to 150 meters.
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra “Summer Blue” 41mm
The 41mm Aqua Terra model shares many attributes with the 38mm, including the classic lines of the 1957 Seamaster, the brushed and polished stainless steel case and bracelet, and the water resistance to 150 meters. The 41mm is also available with a bold blue rubber strap. The dial on this model has a summer blue gradient finish, with the same rhodium-plated hands, but Super-LumiNova coated geometric indexes in place of the sailboat shapes. Outfitted with an equally precise and impressive Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer caliber 8900, and certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer Co-Axial Master Chronometer “Summer Blue”
For watch enthusiasts who are as equally at home in Auckland or Beijing as they are in Los Angeles or London, this timepiece was made for you. The blue, multi-layered, laser-engraved dial features a world map ringed with global cities, along with day and night indicators. A hesalite glass connects the inner and outer displays. The 43mm stainless steel case is matched with a stainless steel bracelet, and a blue rubber strap is also available. The hands and indexes are coated with light blue Super-LumiNova for superior visibility, even at the watery depths of 150 meters that this model is resistant to. This Worldtimer is powered by an Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer caliber 8938.
Omega Seamaster 300 Co-Axial Master Chronometer “Summer Blue”
In 1957 Omega introduced, with great fanfare, their Professional trilogy—the Seamaster, the Speedmaster, and the Railmaster—watches that have stood the horological test of time. This Summer Blue edition continues that memorable legacy, in both sleek, classic look and METAS-certified chronometer. The 41mm polished and brushed stainless steel case is the perfect setting for the darker, richer, lacquered summer blue dial, as befits the water resistance to 300 meters. Like the other models in the collection, the rhodium-plated hands, hour markers and numerals are filled with light blue Super-LumiNova. A stainless steel bracelet completes the look.
Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Co-Axial Master Chronometer “Summer Blue”
When is a tool watch not just a tool watch? When it has all the features that befits one of the best diving watches in the world—enamel diving scale, helium escape valve, screw-in crown, and unidirectional rotating blue ceramic bezel—matched with a design that looks just as good with a business suit as it does with a wetsuit. Stainless steel case with either a stainless steel bracelet or blue rubber strap. The summer blue lacquered ceramic dial with radial gradient and etched wave pattern features rhodium-plated skeletonized hands and indexes filled with light blue Super-LumiNova. Water resistance to 300 meters. Powered by a METAS-certified Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer caliber 8800.
Omega Planet Ocean Co-Axial Master Chronometer 600m “Summer Blue”
The 39.5mm stainless steel case of this Planet Ocean Summer Blue model encloses a diving watch of unsurpassed quality, with all the technologically innovative features necessary for 600 meter water resistance. This model is dressed in the collection’s summer blue color palette, with a dark blue ceramic bezel decorated with a light blue enameled diving scale, textured dark blue radial gradient PVD-coated ceramic dial, and blued hands and indexes filled with light blue Super-LumiNova. Powered by the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8800 escapement, certified by the Swiss.
Omega Seamaster Ploprof Co-Axial Master Chronometer 1200M “Summer Blue”
Ploprof is shorthand for Plongeur Professional, which is French for Professional Diver. As the name implies, this is a dive watch packed with cutting-edge, innovative features. With the monoblock case, which includes a screw-in crown and safety pusher at 2 o’clock, there’s no need for a helium escape valve, and the deep blue sapphire glass bezel ring with light blue diving scale is the perfect accompaniment. A powerful METAS-certified Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8912 escapement guarantees superior accuracy under even the most exacting conditions. Go right from exploring the ocean depths to exploring whatever the world’s most exclusive nightspot has to offer, without ever having to remove your watch.
Omega Seamaster Ultra Deep Co-Axial Master Chronometer 6000M “Summer Blue”
There are diving watches, and then there are diving watches to make history. An Omega Seamaster Ultra Deep was worn on a dive to the deepest spot on all of planet Earth, the Mariana Trench. This watch has water resistance to an astounding 6,000 meters, which, if you’re doing the math, is 3.72 miles. This Summer Blue edition has a case and matching bracelet crafted of rugged O-Megasteel, with a full suite of dive-ready features. The rich, deep blue of the dial is textured to represent the seabed of the deepest point in the ocean, with multiple layers of lacquer to add to the depth of color. Best of all? The secret illustration and text that only shows up under UV light. Check it out! Hands and hour markers are filled with light blue Super-LumiNova. Powered by a Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8912.
