Summer is in full effect as Omega celebrates the 75th anniversary of their Seamaster collection with a series of Seamaster Summer Blue watches. This “Aqua Terra” time-date appears with this watery blue dial that exudes character. One of the trade secrets relies on applying a PVD (Physical Vapor Disposition) method to create these unique dials.The 38 mm is made out of stainless-steel with a near fully polished finish, although a look at the integrated bracelet immediately breaks this flow with vertically brushed side links. Mounted to the symmetrical case is also a thin steel bezel with a mirror-like polished finish, for a compact and cohesive design.On the flip-side is a stamped commemorative Seamaster logo depicting a trident-bearing Poseidon and two seahorses. This was OMEGA’s 1956 original design which the brand has currently reinstated for this milestone anniversary..It comes equipped with a knurled screw-in crown. All topped by a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. Water-resistance can reach up to 150 meters (500 feet).The dial shines with a light blue, but the official designation is OMEGA’s own “Summer Blue”. It spreads out with a sun-brushed finish and gives off a vibe of subtle waves on clear blue waters. Keeping with this summer theme, this collection shares its common blue hue.Obtaining this type of pigment requires an individual vapor disposition process with either a chemical vapor (CVD) or physical vapor (PVD) method. This exact technology is proprietary and was applied by Omega last year and clearly has space to grow. Time is exhibited with rhodium-applied hour index markers, shaped like the hull of a sailboat (instead of being with wedge-style shapes). Plus it also opted out of having any sort of seconds rings, be it rounding around the flange or on a sub-dial counter. A simple layout with legibility and a serene and peacefully watery series of overtones along the dial that can glare as nearing light sources reflect.The rhodium-plated central hands and hour index markers have all been fitted with a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility. There is also a tone-on-tone date window with a circular shape, placed at the 6 o’clock position.
