The Constellation is one of Omega’s most popular collections, a bright star in its portfolio that epitomizes femininity, luxury and elegance. Since 1982 when it was first launched, this impressively famous design has shaped a new trend in modern horology- the one of combining glittery aesthetics with fascinating performances.
The contemporary look of the Omega Constellation for ladies proposes a classy style that was an unstoppable passion for brilliance and preciosity. The main elements that emphasize this belief are the stunning 11 diamonds hour markers, the blue mother of pearl dial, the star logo located at 6 o’clock and the enchanting wavy pattern. All these distinctive design marks resonate with the opulent image of the Constellation collection.
Particularly, this blue mother of pearl dial brings a nice astronomical touch to the entire watch due to its subtle blue color that is reminiscent to the endless sky. This poetical similarity is continued by the glittery diamond markers that shine beautifully on the wavy Constellation dial. The waves that decorate the face of the watch are actually an extent to the iconic “Griffes” or claws. Even though, most Constellation lady models come with a square shaped date window, this one has a round aperture that matches the overall geometry of the model. The minutes, hour and seconds hands break the equilibrium with bold, thick and triangular shapes that are meant to increase the readability of the dial. The use of Supernova is another effort meant to ensure easy legibility. Over this very complex and charismatic dial there is an anti-reflective scratch-resistant sapphire crystal that besides its refined look is incredibly resistant to daily wear and tear.
The Omega Constellation for women measures 27 mm in diameter and has a 9 mm thick case. Its round shape, brushed surfaces and delicate sizes turn it into the ideal accessory for stylish occasions. To enhance the grace and sophistication of its design, the case back sports a sapphire crystal that reveals the artfully constructed Co-Axial 8520 automatic movement. The case is nicely complemented by a fixed and brushed stainless steel bezel embossed with Roman numerals. The 3 and 9 o’clock indexes have been replaced with highly polished dashes that accentuate the casual elegance of this timepiece.
There are many things that attract to the lady Constellation with a blue mother of pearl dial, but one of its greatest assets is the exceptional Omega Co-Axial Escapement movement – Caliber 8520. This extremely precise and durable automatic mechanism enjoys a few spectacular qualities such as the rhodium plated finish, the bi-directional automatic winding and the 50 hours power reserve. It is a state of the art in house calibre developed and constructed to offer excellent performances.
Unquestionably, Omega is a remarkable watch brand that knows how to treat its fans with an exquisite cocktail of style, innovation and utility. Its Constellation timepieces are captivating instruments that offer a lighter touch of luxury in a time when the industry is dominated by commercial watches that have lost their perennial appeal.
