Omega just announced its new 41mm Constellation for gents.
The new Omega Constellation in 41mm features iconic design traits such as the claws and the half-moon facets at either end of the case. This collection comes in stainless steel, 18K gold, or a combination of both.
Only one model in the new collection features its own stainless steel bezel, which is enhanced by blackened Roman numerals. For the other models with ceramic bezels, the Roman numerals have been produced in either OMEGA Ceragold™ or Liquidmetal™.
Almost all the bezels have been crafted in polished ceramic to replicate the look of the original Constellation Manhattan of 1982, which used shiny sapphire glass.
Bevelling along the edges of the case and claws made the new Constellation look more slender compared to models of the past, and even the crown has been subtly reshaped for added style. Adding to this effect, the hands have been slimmed down and the new indexes take their inspiration from the Manhattan skyline, most notably the triangular facets of the Freedom Tower.
The Constellation 41mm will be presented on leather straps with an anti-bacterial rubber lining. A decorative metallic link connects each side of the strap to the case, creating a unique look of its own. Those who prefer an overall metallic look can fit the bracelet of the Constellation 39mm on the new Constellation.
Finally, the caseback features sapphire crystal that offers a view of the OMEGA Master Co-Axial Calibre 8900 / 8901 inside. All watches have been Master Chronometer certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) at the industry’s highest standards of precision, performance and magnetic resistance.
