Today, Omega debuted the 5th generation Constellation Gents’ collection, consisting of 26 new references, all in 39 mm diameter cases (available in 18K yellow, 18K Sedna gold, stainless steel, and two-tone).
Like the makeover the Constellation ladies’ models received in 2018, all the gents’ models received significant upgrades for 2020.
The changes include polished and beveled edges along with the case, claws, and bracelets, which deliver a renewed sense of refinement. Slimmer bezels with redesigned Roman numerals, slimmer claws that fit gracefully around the case, a new conical crown, redesigned hands and hour-markers which have taken inspiration from the triangular facets of the Freedom Tower in New York, and metal bracelets with new mid-bar links and a comfort-release function, or leather straps in various colors. Plus, all Constellation models have been enhanced with certified Master Chronometer movements.
The Omega Constellation debuted in 1952, however, it was the look released in 1982 — which included the four claws on the side of the case, the barrel-shaped case with its half-moon facets at the top and bottom, mono-link bracelet and also the perfectly circular dial and indices on the bezel — that’s still seen today.
Each Constellation wristwatch comes with an Omega in-house Master Chronometer Co-Axial caliber 8800 automatic movement, a domed sapphire crystal, transparent caseback, and is rated to 50 meters water-resistant.
Retail starts at $6,050 in stainless steel.
