Omega didn’t show us everything in BaselWorld, as we previously saw a few pictures on Instagram from some Italian partners and authorities talking Seamaster Edizione Venezia. Only a couple days prior, Omega formally reported this extraordinary watch that may be available to be purchased at the Omega Boutique and the T Fondaco dei Tedeschi by DFS (retail chain) in Venice.
Omega Seamaster Edizione Venezia
The Seamaster assortment (1948) is really the most seasoned line-up from Omega in the momentum groups of watches. The Constellation was presented in 1952, Speedmaster in 1957 and De Ville in 1967. The absolute first Seamaster models have little to do with the ebb and flow line up of watches. The Seamaster gradually changed into energetic watches and expert looks as we probably are aware them today. The exemption may be the Seamaster Aqua Terra assortment of watches, yet at the same time you can scarcely say that these are dress watches.
The Omega Seamaster Edizione Venezia obviously is. From the start it made me think about the as of late presented Omega De Ville Trésor , however this watch has an alternate case plan. The Seamaster Edizione Venezia utilizes the celebrated lyre drags, that we additionally know from other present day Omega models. The date at 6 and the bolt molded hour markers helps me to remember those vintage 1950s Seamaster watches. I really have one of those in my own humble assortment of watches, a 1950s Seamaster Calendar with programmed guard movement.
According to Omega, this Seamaster Edizione Venezia got its name from the way that one of individuals from Omega’s configuration group of the 1950’s was motivated by the famous gondolas and the etched portrayals of Neptune’s Seahorse on each side. This lead to the utilization of the celebrated Seahorse emblem. Intriguing truth: a similar individual was likewise answerable for the Observatory emblem on the caseback of the Constellation models.
A unobtrusive 39.5mm is the size of the case, which makes it an ideal dress watch and like the case size of the Omega Globemaster and De Ville Trésor. In reality, it is directly in the middle of those two different models with respect to the size. You could likewise say that the plan is additionally in the middle of those models. The Trésor looks somewhat more ‘sleek’ while the Globemaster is a touch more contemporary. It very well may merit an excursion to Venice if you’re ‘in-between’ those models.
Interestingly, the circular crown on the watch is enlivened by the arch of the St Mark’s Basilica in Venice. As of now referenced the applied lists help me to remember the vintage Seamasters like my own. The hands are ‘leaf’ formed, rather than the dauphin hands those 1950s models used to have in most cases.
The caseback of the Seamaster Edizione Venezia does obviously convey the Seahorse emblem, however not in the exemplary way. As should be obvious, the Seahorse has been laser engraved in the sapphire precious stone. Utilizing this technique, you are as yet ready to respect the development that has been Master Chronometer confirmed by METAS . The Seamaster Edizione is water impervious to 60 meters.
The 18 carat Sedna gold model highlights the type 8801 development. A self-twisting development with Co-Axial escapement that meets all the ‘Master Chronometer’ prerequisites, for example, a protection from attraction up to 15,000 gauss. It has a free sprung-offset with silicon balance spring. This development has a 55-hour power hold. The treated steel Seamaster Edizione Venezia has the type 8800 development, which has similar determinations yet lacks the 18 carat Sedna gold rotor and gold equilibrium connect. A picture of the type 8800 adaptation can be seen below.
The 18 carat Sedna gold Seamaster Edizione Venezia comes on an earthy colored cowhide tie while the hardened steel rendition comes on a dark calfskin tie. The two watches come in this wonderful dark lacquered box with burgundy velours lining, much the same as those Venetian gondolas.
The hardened steel adaptation of the Seamaster Edizione has reference number 5220.127.116.11.02.001 and retails for 5900 Euro.
