The Omega Constellation series watch has a very classic and iconic design. The Omega Constellation series came out in 1952, and the Constellation watch launched in 1982 has also become the source of design and style of modern Constellation watches, and it continues to develop and innovate. The appearance of the fifth generation Constellation watch (ref126.96.36.199.03.001), on the one hand, followed the classic design, on the other hand, adjustments and upgrades were made in the details.
Previously, men’s watches of Omega Constellation collection were available in 35 mm and 38 mm sizes. The fifth-generation Omega Constellation watch was adjusted to a diameter of 39 mm; the bezel was adjusted to be more slender, leaving more space for the dial. The claws have also been adjusted to be more delicate and slender, and fit tightly with the case.
This Omega watch is made of Sedna® 18K gold. Compared with traditional rose gold, this material has softer and more elegant characteristics, and is still very different from traditional rose gold in terms of gloss and wear resistance. The design of the supporting claw is the iconic design of Omega Constellation timepieces, which allows people to recognize it instantly. The case and supporting claws have been polished and chamfered to give a more refined surface.
The conical crown is engraved with the classic Omega logo and is surrounded by the non-slip texture, which is convenient for the wearer to operate the watch.
The Sedna® 18K gold case with a blue dial is decorated with a special texture. The hands and hour markers are inspired by the triangular section of the New York Freedom Tower and have been redesigned to look more three-dimensional. The Omega logo at 12 o’clock and the five-pointed star logo at 6 o’clock are made of Sedna® 18K gold. A date display window is also arranged at 6 o’clock.
The watch is paired with a blue leather strap, highlighting the elegant male style.
The watch houses Omega 8801 Co-Axial Observatory movement, which is excellent in terms of anti-magnetic and shock resistance. This movement is equipped with a two-way automatic winding system and a cardless balance with a silicon balance spring. From the transparent case back, you can admire the 18K Sedna ™ gold balance plate and automatic rotor, extremely delicate and amazing.
