Omega Seamaster Edizione Venezia Rose Gold

Omega unveils new collection of SeamasterEdizione Venezia” watches, celebrating the wonderful “floating city” of Venice. The collection will be exclusively sold in the famous Italian city.

The story of the collection begins in the 1950s, when Venice provided the inspiration for one of Omega’s most famous symbols. On a visit to the famous city, one of the Omega design team was struck by the iconic gondolas and the beautifully sculpted representations of Neptune’s seahorse on each side. Omega’s symbol for its symbol for its Seamaster collection was born, and featured on models from 1957.

Today, 5th May 2017, Omega is paying tribute to that particular story, as well as the famous city, with this new collection of watches. 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 is said to draw inspiration from St. Mark’s Basilica.

The famous Seahorse medallion has been laser engraved onto 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 for collectors – either an 18K rose gold case on a brown leather strap, or a stainless steel version on a black leather strap. Both versions come presented in their very own special black-lacquered presentation box, lined with burgundy velour reminiscent of a Venetian gondola’s interior.

With a Master Chronometer calibre of the industry’s highest precision, and a design story filled with true Omega heritage, these new models are sure to appeal to collectors the world over. The watches can only be purchased at the Omega boutique in Venice.
