VENETIAN SOIREE. British Actor Eddie Redmayne joins Omega to celebrate the new Aqua Terra collection in Venice
The beautiful city of Venice became the backdrop for Omega’s special Aqua Terra event which was attended by a host of VIP guests, including award-winning actor Eddie Redmayne who also happens to be the face for the newly updated timepiece. The Seamaster’s iconic seahorse logo was featured throughout the event area, bringing forth the aquatic roots of the timepiece. The nautical themed event took place at the Palazzo Pisani Moretta where guests got the opportunity to be introduced to the new iteration of the Aqua Terra models which were presented across five beautifully-decorated rooms.
During the special event dinner, President and CEO of OMEGA Mr. Raynald Aeschlimann described the new watches as “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”.
As mentioned before, Eddie Redmayne who is the face of Omega’s new Aqua Terra gents’ campaign, expressed his impression of 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”.
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.
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.
