OMEGA is a Swiss luxury watchmaker founded by Louis Brandt in 1848. The company is headquartered in Biel, Switzerland. Over the years, the brand has pioneered watchmaking technology by introducing a number of innovations. OMEGA has also been the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games since 1932, which only goes on to show its impeccable reputation as a watchmaker of great precision and reliability.
The Constellation collection was launched in 1982. The collection is characterized by its famous “Griffes”, or claws, and striking dials. The dynamic collection was completely redesigned in 2009, thus attracting an entirely new generation of Constellation wearers who appreciated the collection’s sublime designs and refined style.
This model features an engraved blue mother-of-pearl dial with 11 diamond indexes and a date window at 3 o'clock. The watch features a stainless steel case and sports a bezel that has been engraved with Roman numerals. The 27 mm case, with its fascinating design, is presented on a stainless steel bracelet. The round case shape and the familiar engraved star at the 6 o’clock position is a typical feature of the collection. The transparent caseback adds to the alluring charm of the Constellation timepiece.
The exquisite dial is covered by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. The watch boasts of a chronometer certification from COSC, the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute. It is powered by the OMEGA 8520 Calibre, a self-winding movement with Co-Axial escapement for greater stability and durability. The movement includes a free sprung-balance system with a silicon balance-spring that makes it a sturdy watch. Automatic winding in both directions also ensures reduced winding time. The movement is adorned with a Rhodium plated finish and Geneva waves in arabesque. The watch has a power reserve of 50 hours and is water resistant up to 100 metres.
George Clooney, Angelina Jolie and Daniel Craig are some of the Hollywood actors endorsing the brand. Abhishek Bachchan from Bollywood is the brand ambassador of OMEGA in India.
