OMEGA Seamaster Celebrates 75 Years with Pops of ‘Summer Blue’

OMEGA celebrates 75 years of its iconic Seamaster line with an 11-watch collection spread over seven models. The collection, with models ranging from formal pieces to technical dive watches, features dials with OMEGA’s Summer Blue color gradient to reflect the watches’ water resistance.

Common to all the watches is The Seamaster logo, depicting a trident-bearing Poseidon, two seahorses on the caseback, and variants of the Summer Blue color gradient on the dial. The dials get darker on the watches with a higher depth rating.

First off, we have the Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial Master Chronometer, first seen in 2002, with a look reminiscent of the original Seamaster 300. Since then, the model received design updates like sailboat indexes and teak-pattern dials. OMEGA’s new Aqua Terra Summer Blue collection introduces three new models with symmetrical cases, sun-brushed Summer Blue dials, a gradient finish varnish reflecting the Aqua Terra’s water resistance of 150m, and stainless-steel crowns; the 38mm variant has sailboat indexes and a polished and brushed bracelet, powered by OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8800, and the two 41mm versions with either a matching bracelet or blue rubber strap, and runs on OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8900. The rubber strap Omega Aqua Terra 150M 41mm retails for $6,400, the bracelet for $6,600, and the 38mm version retails for $7,000.

Next up is the Seamaster Aqua Terra Worldtimer Co-Axial Master Chronometer. It has day and night indications, a circle of silver-hued global destinations around the Summer Blue dial with a gradient finish varnish reflecting a water resistance of 150m, a Laser-ablated rendition of the earth on a grade 5 titanium plate dial depicting a blue ocean, and relief of the continents, and hesalite glass showing a 24-hour reading with light blue to indicate daytime and dark blue to indicate night between the inner and outer displays. The Worldtimer runs on OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8938 movement. It comes in two variants, one with a matching bracelet or a blue rubber strap. The Omega Aqua Terra Worldtimer Summer Blue has a $9,200 retail price for the rubber strap and $9,400 for the bracelet.

The 41mm Seamaster 300 Co-Axial Master Chronometer, first seen in 1957, features an easy-to-read display, a symmetrical case and crown in polished and brushed stainless steel, a matching bracelet, the ‘Naiad’ star set within the logo on the crown, a light blue Super-LumiNova rhodium-plated hands, recessed hour markers, and open numerals, varnished Summer Blue dial reflecting a deeper water resistance of up to 300m. It runs on the OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer caliber 8912 and retails for $6,700.

The 42mm stainless steel Seamaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer, first seen in 1993, features a blue ceramic bezel with new Summer Blue enamel (Grand feu) diving scale, rhodium-plated skeleton hands, light blue Super-LumiNova filled raised indexes, Summer Blue wave-pattern ceramic dial with a gradient finish varnish to reflect its 300m water resistance, and helium escape valve. The Seamaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer runs on OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8800. And like the Aqua Terra, this model comes in two variants, one with a matching bracelet for $6,300 or a blue rubber strap for $5,900.

The 39.5mm Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Co-Axial Master Chronometer, first released in 2005, features a stainless-steel case and bracelet construction, a blue ceramic bezel with a light blue diving scale, a PVD Summer Blue ceramic dial treated and varnished with a gradient finish implying the watch’s depth rating, light blue Super-LumiNova filled blued hands and indexes, and a water resistance of 600m. The watch runs on OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8800 and retails for $7,400.

And then we have the Seamaster Ploprof Co-Axial Master Chronometer, first seen in 1971, which was one of the most robust and divers’ wrist watches ever made with the now iconic monobloc case. It features an O-MEGASTEEL construction, screwed-in crown, security pusher at 2 o’clock with a blue ceramic ring, sun-brushed Summer Blue dial, sapphire crystal bezel ring varnished blue on the back, and light blue diving scale. And water resistance of up to 1200m. It runs on OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8912 caliber movement and retails for $14,300.

Finally, we have the 45.5 mm Seamaster Ultra Deep Co-Axial Master Chronometer. It features an O-MEGASTEEL case and bracelet construction and a unique lacquered finish dial pattern that accurately represents the Challenger Deep mapped by the Five Deeps team using almost one million sonar points and water resistance of up to 6000m. Under UV light, the words ‘OMEGA WAS HERE’ is revealed, pointing to the world record 10,935 m dive in 2019 showing the Western, Central, and Eastern Pools. Powering this legendary watch is OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8912. It carries a retail price of $13,000.

Also available are accessories that complement the new Seamaster watches. These include Wave-pattern keyrings, blue-hued sailing bracelets, seahorse-logo cufflinks, and a stainless steel blue wristband fixed with Poseidon’s trident.
