As the Seamaster's iconic logo was inspired by the seahorse emblems on the side of Venice gondolas, the floating city was OMEGA's first choice of location for its special tribute to Aqua Terra, with guest Eddie Redmayne.
The beautiful city of Venice served as the perfect backdrop for OMEGA's special Aqua Terra event, attended by a host of VIP guests, including award-winning actor and friend of the brand - Eddie Redmayne.
The event, which took place in the luxurious surroundings of the Palazzo Pisani Moretta, began with a chance for guests to acquaint themselves with the new Aqua Terra models, which were presented across five beautifully-decorated rooms, to allow clear views and free movement.
At the special event dinner, President and CEO of OMEGA Mr. Raynald Aeschlimann extended a warm welcome to all present and called the new watches "exceptional new editions to the Aqua Terra family", before welcoming guest of honour Eddie Redmayne, who he referred to as an "extremely talented actor and an absolute gentleman".
Eddie Redmayne, who is the face of OMEGA's new Aqua Terra gents' campaign, went on to say how impressed he was with the new "refined and symmetrical look" of the latest watches and insisted that "there's no substitute for classic style". He also spoke warmly about his partnership with OMEGA, saying "I'm a history buff and I love OMEGA's rich legacy".
Though the speeches were delivered at tables to keep the atmosphere relaxed and casual, the food had been meticulously prepared by legendary Italian chef Carlo Cracco, who even took time between courses to greet assembled guests.
OMEGA’s Seamaster Aqua Terra has always provided the perfect balance between sophistication and ocean spirit. In this new collection, some of the most popular features have been enhanced or subtly transformed. The most notable changes include the teak pattern on the dial which now runs horizontally, as opposed to vertically, as well as the refined aesthetics and symmetrical case.
Cased in stainless steel, 18K Sedna™ gold or a mixture of both, the Aqua Terra Gents' Collection offers an incredible choice of looks. There are black, brown, blue, grey or silvery dials and a diverse selection of bracelets and straps, including steel, leather and structured rubber.
Certified as Master Chronometers, the collection also takes the Aqua Terra to new heights of precision and performance.
Amongst the many guests at the event were U.K models David Gandy and Oliver Cheshire, who was accompanied by his fiancée, U.K singer, Pixie Lott; Indonesian actor Nicholas Saputra, Japanese actor Ryohei Otani; and from the Philippines actress Lovi Poe. Also in attendance were Hong Kong actress Fala Chen and Italian celebrity guests included singer Emma Marrone, actress Miriam Leone; actors Alessandro Preziosi and Adriano Giannini.
