OMEGA – Seamaster “Edizione Venezia”

OMEGASeamaster Co-Axial Master-Chronometer “Edizione Venezia39.5 mm Special Boutique Piece

OMEGA's unveils new collection of Seamaster Edizione Venezia
watches - to be sold exclusively in the famous Italian city

The story of the collection begins in the 1950's, when Venice provided the inspiration for one of OMEGA’s most famous symbols.

On a visit to the city, a member of OMEGA's design department was struck by the famous gondolas and the beautifully sculpted representations of Neptune’s Seahorse on each side. OMEGA's symbol for its Seamaster collection had been found, and the emblem began appearing on models from 1957.

Today, OMEGA is paying tribute to that story, as well as the city itself, through this new collection.
The domed opaline-silvery dial on each model draws its design influence from the vaulted ceiling effects of Venetian architecture.

The Venice theme even extends to the spherical crown, which follows the shape of the dome of St Mark's Basilica.

The famous Seahorse medallion has been laser engraved on the sapphire crystal caseback and the words “SEAMASTER” and “Edizione Venezia” have been transferred onto the inner caseback ring. There is also a transferred pattern which closely resembles the intricate detail of Venice’s own flag.

Two different styles of the Seamaster “Edizione Venezia” are now available to customers – either with an 18K Sedna™ gold case on a brown leather strap, or a stainless steel version on a black leather strap. Both versions come presented in their own special black-lacquered presentation box, lined in burgundy velour reminiscent of a Venetian gondola's interior.
