OMEGA Constellation: Luxury Meets Swiss Watchmaking

Omega News & Releases

OMEGA is world-famous for watches that seamlessly blend style, elegance and performance, and which have conquered the ocean, land and space.

You can discover a vast array of OMEGA watches at Banks Lyon, all crafted from the highest quality materials and with superior performance in mind. The precise craftsmanship of the pieces could not be more evident in the OMEGA constellation watches, which combine luxury with Swiss watchmaking and excellence.

OMEGA Constellation Collection

The Constellation watch was launched in 1952 and named after the Constellation jet that flew during the Second World War. At the time, it was the brand’s flagship watch and its caseback displayed the several achievements the piece had already obtained: the location of the chronometer trials and eight stars that represent the eight chronometry records that OMEGA broke in 1931 (six) and 1951 (two).

OMEGA are not afraid to innovate and break barriers, and this is obvious in all of its collections, including the Constellation. For instance, the Constellation MegaQuartz, the first quartz watch from the brand, is still the only wristwatch to ever receive the title of Marine Chronometer.

For many years, the Constellation was updated with new and improved movements and, today, many pieces in the collection have Master Chronometer movements.

The OMEGA Constellation collection is characterised by features like minimalist markers and a start symbol marking the 6 o’clock position. The family of watches has received a modern makeover but still retain its classic appeal and elegance with clean, easy-to-read dials and the iconic four decorative ‘claws’.

Constellation watches are available in a wide range of sizes and designs, but one thing is certain: they’re the epitome of luxury. And, by also investing in superior craftsmanship, OMEGA aims for their timepieces to achieve perfection when it comes to both aesthetic and timekeeping accuracy.

The new 41mm models are as bold as they are sophisticated, and perfectly embody the collection’s timeless appeal. These additions to the gents’ watches are made from the most advanced materials and movements, and each piece comes with the four claws, half-moon facets, Roman numerals and a single star.

The watches come in different colours as well, so you can select the one that best suits your personal style and preference. They also have a ceramic bezel, which replicate the look of the original Constellation Manhattan of 1982.

The new models are the perfect example of how OMEGA manufactures watches that don’t compromise on luxury, no matter how powerful their performance is.

Take a look at the new 41mm Constellation models in more detail below.

The hands, logo, facetted indexes and Constellation star are blackened.

The watch comes with water resistance of up to 50 metres and is powered by the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8900, which you can see through the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
