The Omega Constellation is not one of the main Omega watches on my radar. This fact is interesting to me because I’m usually a big fan of Omega watches. Talking to Omega becomes meaningful and interesting when you consider it. The world is divided into two main Omega markets. These are the Omega Speedmaster and Seamaster markets and the Omega Constellation and Devil markets.
The United States is primarily the market for Omega Speedmaster and Seamaster. In other words, if Omega’s statements are correct, they will sell more Devil and Constellation models in the East. As such, these dress-up models are not a major part of Omega’s western image, but dress-up watches rather than sports watches make up the bulk of Omega’s overall sales. With that in mind, I went on to review two different Omega Constellation men’s watches.
In a sense, the reviews for this watch are almost identical to those for the Constellation, which Omega has promised to release a redesigned version of next year in 2015. Thus, the current Constellation is circa 2007, just as Devil helped launch replica omega uk new in-house movement. As such, both models include the internal self-winding movement from the 8500/8600 series.
Currently, the maximum size of the Constellation men’s watch is 38mm wide. As the Western market grows in size, I think that will change next year. I personally think that for the American market, the “Omega Constellation” should be at least 40mm wide (and possibly 42mm maximum). I would like to see a reference for a stainless steel OMEGA Constellation Co-Axial Day Date 38mm watch. 126.96.36.199.01.001 and an 18k Sedna Gold Omega Constellation Co-Axial 38mm Ref. 188.8.131.52.02.001.
At least in the modern sense, the steel model is probably more classically a “symposium”. The Constellation has been a member of the replica omega constellation watches family since the 1950s, but in 1982 it appeared in its modern form as the Manhattan Constellation. Renowned watch designer Gerald Genta designed the Omega Constellation in the early 1960s, but was inspired by the Genta designs that were popular in the 1970s, but not the Constellation Manhattan.
The Omega Constellation Manhattan introduced the iconic “case claw” and the single-piece tapered bracelet. These are still part of the design. Of course, another major part of the Manhattan’s unique aesthetic is the Roman numeral time markers on the bezel. The Omega Constellation Co-Axial Day Date Steel Date has the look of a modern Constellation watch, while the 18k Sedna gold dial is inspired by earlier Manhattan models of the Omega Constellation.
What is Sedna Gold? If you’re not familiar with the term, it’s Omega’s answer to Rolex’s Everose Gold. In other words, the 18k rose gold alloy doesn’t fade over time. Everose is a unique alloy designed to prevent the copper from wearing out and the gold from losing its “rose” color. Sedna works in the same way, which makes it even more permanent for those who buy 18k gold watches. If I remember correctly, this particular Constellation is Omega’s first 18-carat Sedna Gold Metal watch.
The Sedna Gold constellation is lovely, and the warm tones of the rose gold complement the overall design. That said, I prefer to use a two-tone constellation model when showing off the gold, as constellations always look best on certain types of steel. With its simple dial, this modern constellation is a link to replica omega uk past. We paid special attention to details such as the date frame and the angle of the face.
The OMEGA Constellation Co-Axial 38mm Sedna Gold is a unique and interesting watch that connects a series of Omega historical points. It combines the old with the new in a unique way. The case has a brown tapered alligator leather strap. Is it possible to get a complete picture of the Twelve by wearing the watch on the strap rather than on the entire bracelet?
Omega manufactures this Sedna Gold watch. The 184.108.40.206.02.001 is a limited edition of the Constellation watch, which Omega first introduced in 1952. Inside the watch is the in-house self-winding Co-Axial caliber 8501. This is similar to the caliber 8500, but the 8501 adds 18-karat gold bridges and an 18-karat pink gold automatic rotor to the balance wheel.
