Updating its range of luxury sports watches
The Constellation series from Omega is now in its fifth generation. This was always the brand’s luxury sports watch category, and here it is again with 26 brand-new models, each measuring 39mm, with a range of aesthetic upgrades.
Among the materials used are 18k yellow gold, 18k Sedna gold and stainless steel. You’ll also find polished and bevelled edges along the case, claws and bracelet; slimmer bezels with redesigned Roman numerals; and slimmer claws that fit gracefully around the case.
A conical crown has been introduced for added sophistication, and there are redesigned hands and hour-markers, taking inspiration from the triangular facets of the Freedom Tower in New York. The metal bracelets, meanwhile, have new mid-bar links and a comfort-release function, as well as leather straps in various colours.
Finally, all of the new models have been upgraded to Master Chronometer status – achieving the Swiss industry’s highest certification for precision, performance and magnetic resistance.
Although the Constellation name dates back to 1952, it first became a collection in 1982, with a signature look that remains today. This includes the four ‘claws’ on the side of the case, the barrel-shaped appearance with its half-moon facets at the top and bottom, the mono-link bracelet, and also the circular dial and indexes on the bezel. Subsequent ranges were introduced in 1995, 2003 and 2009.
