Taking cues from the last makeover for the Constellation ladies’ models, the gents collection has been given a similar update. Renewed refinement and sophistication is the name of the game with the men’s Constellation now sporting polished and bevelled edges along the case, claws and bracelet; slimmer bezels (with redesigned Roman numerals) and claws; a conical crown; redesigned hands and hour-markers; and metal bracelets with mid-bar links and comfort-release function, or leather straps in a palette of hues.
Proportioned at 39 mm that befits the male wrist, as well as for women preferring a more generous dial size, all the 26 new models come rendered in superb materials, such as 18k yellow gold, 18k SednaTM gold and stainless steel.
Most significantly, this Constellation collection has been upgraded to Master Chronometer status, synonymous with top-notch Swiss certification for precision, performance and magnetic resistance. Launched in 1952, this current 5th generation Omega Constellation most reflects its 1982 chapter with the four-clawed look on the side of the case that we recognise today, together with the barrel-shaped case with top and bottom half-moon facets; mono-link bracelet; and circular dial and indexes on the bezel.
This version was followed in 1995 by the softer and rounder 2nd generation iteration; and in 2003 the robust “Double Eagle” rendition; and the elegant redux in 2009.
