The Omega Constellation hasn’t been one of the main Omega watches in my radar. This simple fact is interesting to me because I am a large fan of Omega watches overall. If you talk to Omega you learn something interesting that makes sense if you think about it. The world is split up into two big types of Omega markets. These are Omega Speedmaster and Seamaster markets, in Addition to Omega constellation co-axial automatic 38mm replica watches Constellation and De Ville markets.
America is for the most part an Omega Speedmaster and Seamaster market. Having said that, if what Omega says is accurate, they sell much more De Ville and Constellation versions from the East. Therefore, while those dressier models are not a main portion of the Omega constellation co-axial day-date 38mm imitation image to the West, it is dress-style watches rather than sport watches that compose the vast majority of Omega watch revenue general.
To a degree, this watch evaluation comes in the verge of when Omega has promised to release a re-designed Constellation watch set next year, at 2015. Nevertheless, the current Constellation collection is from more or less 2007, and such as the De Ville helped establish Omega’s new in-house manufactured movements. As such, both of these versions each contain 8500/8600 series in-house created automatic movements.
The famed watch designer Gerald Genta designed a few earlier 1960s era Omega constellation watches, but not the Constellation Manhattan — although it had been clearly partly inspired by some of Genta’s favorite designs from the 1970s.
The Omega Constellation Manhattan introduced the most iconic”case claws” and single piece tapering bracelet which remains part of the plan today. Obviously another major portion of this different Manhattan aesthetic is that the ring of Roman numeral hour markers on the bezel. Though the steel Omega constellation co-axial chronometer double eagle 38mm replica watches Constellation Co-Axial Day-Date gets the appearance of contemporary Constellation watches, the 18k Sedna gold version has a dial motivated by a previous, pre-Manhattan age Omega Constellation model.
What’s Sedna gold? If you are not comfortable with this word, it’s Omega’s answer to Rolex Everose gold. In other words, an alloy of 18k rose gold that won’t fade in color over time. Everose was developed as an exclusive metal meant to prevent copper from wearing away and also the gold to shed its”rose” color. Sedna works the same manner and was made to ensure more permanence for people who invest in an 18k gold watch. If I remember my facts right, this specific Constellation watch was the introduction timepiece for Omega to introduce its 18k Sedna golden alloy.
The Sedna gold Constellation is beautiful, and the warm tones of gold are flattering to the overall design. That being said, I think the Constellation has always appeared best with some steel, so it’s the two-tone constellation models I like better in regards to showing off some gold. The dial is neat, and helps this contemporary Constellation version connect with Omega’s past. Detailing around components such as the date window frame and the angularity of their face have been well-done.
The Omega Constellation Co-Axial 38mm Sedna gold watch is a unique and intriguing timepiece that joins a range of Omega constellation co-axial 38mm gold clone watch historic factors. It combines old and new in a uniquely fashionable way. Connected to the case is fitting, tapered brown alligator strap. Ask yourself, do you acquire the entire Constellation experience with the watch on a ring versus a complete bracelet?
Omega made this Sedna gold ref. 126.96.36.199.55.002 Constellation watch as a limited edition of 1,952 bits in party of this year which Omega surfaced the Constellation family in 1952. Within the watch is an in-house made Caliber 8501 automatic Co-Axial motion.
Compared to the less common limited variant Sedna gold Constellation is your steel Constellation Co-Axial Day-Date. Here you see use of the Omega constellation co-axial 38 mm precio replica watch caliber 8602 automatic movement. This is quite similar to the 8500 but adds a day of the week index using a window at 12 o’clock. This is Omega’s answer to Rolex’s day-date motion in the Rolex President models. The motion is really fine, and also to getting a Co-Axial escapement and silicon balance spring, the two barrels provide 55 hours of power reserve. What’s more, the date and day indicator windows jump instantly at midnight.
With 100 meters of water resistance and a pretty thick case, the Constellation is not your typical wimpy dress watch. While not a sport watch, the specs on these timepieces mean they are supposed to be worn frequently. Calling it a dress watch is not really fair , as it is more strictly a”dress/sport hybrid” watch. Legibility is pretty great, and while the plan is more subdued and retro, it is a cool look.
As with other iconic watches, the actual allure of the Omega Constellation in my view is how nicely the case and bracelet design work together in such a unified manner. These are designed to move together and the mix of early 80s modern layout together with the timelessness of this dial really make for some thing unique. Nothing else out there looks quite like a Constellation, which helps Omega leverage the DNA of the collection.
