Omega Marks Seamaster’s 75th Anniversary With ‘Summer Blue’ Dive Watch Drop

The ocean-like hue takes center stage with Omega’s latest collection.


It’s been a big year so far for Omega — or rather, it seems as if it’s never not a momentous time for the famed watchmaker, be it releasing its most complicated movement ever or celebrating 60 years of James Bond.

The anniversary celebrations continue to reach a fever pitch in ever-more handsome, functional and rugged-yet-refined fashion with a new 75th anniversary Seamaster Collection this week.

Seven models across 11 watches in total each get a fitting update in crisp, visually striking Summer Blue to celebrate the milestone year, with each boasting its own nods to the impressive history of the Seamaster.

The World Timer might be the most distinctive and impressive of the lot, with a dial boasting a vibrant view of Earth, complete with a 24-hour time ring and dial markings for major global cities.

The Seamaster, as Omega notes, followed on the heels of Omega’s 1932 Marine Watch, the first dive watch on the market for civilians, and yet, it’s only one of a slew of iconic Omega watches to break new ground (including the Speedmaster).

The Seamaster line, in that updated shade of vibrant blue, includes the “stylish and seaworthy” Seamaster Aqua Terra with the watchmaker’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8800 movement and sailboat indices.

The Omega Diver 300M, originally released in 1993, gets its own update in Omega’s Summer Blue, which the famed timepiece maker bills as a “worthy addition to OMEGA’s classic dive watch collection.”

The 39.5mm case diameter of the Planet Ocean, meanwhile, boasts 600 meters of water resistance in true diving performance.


Each model is also outfitted with a caseback commemorating the milestone: In this case, the caseback depicts the Seamaster logo, featuring a trident-bearing Poseidon and two seahorses, one from 1956 and one from the present day.

The most expressive and uncanny of the entire offering might be the Ultra Deep, a fitting nod to Omega’s world record 2019 dive to the Mariana Trench.

A UV light reveals a playful drawing highlighting the depth and location of the dive itself: It’s a one-of-a-kind update to a highly functional timepiece.

The collection’s overarching theme, befitting Omega’s history, is that colorful blue dial found across each model, designed as an homage to “a perfect day on a boundless sea.”

It’s more than a worthy tribute to a line of watches that have quite literally scaled new depths, and the collection can be found online now at Omega.
