The Omega Constellation collection was launched in 1952 and has since been renowned for its ultra-precise movements and elegantly refined cases. Century, a limited edition wristwatch unveiled in 1948 on the firm’s 100th anniversary, is the progenitor of the collection. Due to the overwhelming response received by this watch, the brand launched the Constellation collection, which imbibed the same qualities. In 1982, the Constellation “Manhattan” was launched, with which the four claws or “griffes” were introduced that keep the sapphire crystal case intact to securely render the watch waterproof.
Chronometers are timepieces that are tested under certain conditions and after passing that certification, a timepiece is awarded the designation of a chronometer. In 2014, Omega and the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) came up with a new certification process. The Omega Globemaster became the world’s first watch to be tested under this certification and was awarded the designation of a Master Chronometer.
Since then, the Globemaster series has adorned the Constellation collection with finesse. Be it the fluted bezel or the dial design from the original Constellation, the Globemaster in all its essence is a true masterpiece. Adding to its exuberant personality, the Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar features a month marker on the outer ring of the dial marked by a central hand.
The Constellation features a well-tailored set of timepieces with a bezel that is crafted either with Roman numerals or diamonds. The bezel also features a clamp on the 9 and 3 o’clock markers offering a robust water resistance capability. Whereas, for women, the timepieces are fitted with diamonds either in pave configuration or on the bezel. In some of the timepieces, the index markers are also fixed with precious stones and diamonds. One can avail these Constellations in two configurations either in a small seconds variant or in a petite seconds variant. For men, one can also choose from a variety of diamond-studded timepieces.
