Omega’s iconic Constellation timepiece has transcended the decades since its 1952 debut.

A collection that evolved naturally from the brand’s first chronometer-certified “Centenary” wristwatch four years earlier, the mid-century Constellation made waves and history for being a chronometer-only family of watches ever released by any watchmaker.

In 2018, Omega’s emblem of watchmaking precision takes another leap of faith across the cosmos of design and technology to offer a staggering 101 new models for women.

Now unparalleled in variety, the new Omega Constellation collection is now available in three dial sizes: 25 mm and 28 mm, fitted with OMEGA Calibre 4061, and 29 mm, powered by the OMEGA Master Chronometer Calibre 8700/8701; with options of 18K Sedna and yellow gold, stainless steel and duo-toned combinations; and seven dial colours.

Omega’s commitment to accuracy is perpetuated via the mechanical 29 mm models, whose OMEGA Master Co-Axial movement is certified by 8 stringent tests. Stunning and sophisticated, the revamp bears inventive tweaks, yet the beloved “Manhattan” look is preserved—replete with clean, elegant lines in design, dial shape, and the signature gold star.

The 29 mm’s reboot is led by a new matte finish with polished beveled edges, slimmer claws, and slender bezels marked by delicate Roman numerals in upright reading position. Adding to the finesse: the teeth of the crown looks exquisite being detailed by a feminine half-moon shape that parallels the half-moon facets of the case.

The watch hands are also slimmer, while the indexes take on a sleek graphic sensibility.

Giving the 29 mm model a luxurious touch is a refreshed bracelet with polished “mid-bar” links borrowed from the original Constellation “Manhattan” collection, a domed sapphire crystal case back, and a bracelet clasp with a domed cover and comfort release adjustment.
