OMEGA is a prestigious Swiss luxury watchmaker founded by Louis Brandt in 1848, with its headquarters in Biel, Switzerland. The parent company of this luxury brand is the world famous Swatch Group. OMEGA watches have been preferred by Britain’s Royal Flying Corps and also by American Army in the past. The brand has also been the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games since 1932.
The “Constellation” collection was launched in 1982 and this collection is notable for its beautiful design concepts. OMEGA Constellation is characterized by its famous “Griffes” or claws, and striking dials. The dynamic collection was completely re-designed in 2009, attracting a whole new generation of Constellation wearers. The current collection recalls the tradition while proclaiming originality, design excellence and technical innovation that would have been the envy of its ancestors.
The yellow gold on steel model has an engraved, white mother of pearl dial with 12 diamond studded indexes. The patent star is placed on its usual 6 o’clock position and the pattern on the dial is typical of the Constellation collection. The bezel is studded by 32 diamonds and encompasses the sapphire crystal covering the dial. The 24 mm stainless steel case is presented on a stainless steel bracelet with 18K yellow gold bars. The hours and minutes hands are also coated with 18K yellow gold.
The enduring timepiece is powered by the OMEGA quartz Calibre 1376. The brand has left no stone unturned to deliver absolute precision by putting in the latest quartz movement, which comes with a rhodium plated finish. It has a power reserve of 41 months and comes with a 2 year warranty. The watch is water resistant up to 100 meters.
