Omega's stunning new Constellation One of Omega's most iconic collections, Constellation is the brand's answer to an impeccable dress watch with the highest accuracy. Unveiled in 1952, it was positioned as a chronometer that showcased Omega's advanced features in timekeeping precision, inspired replica watches by the 1948 chronometer-certified Centenary (named after Omega's 100th anniversary). Omega lovers will know that the Constellation debuted with a "pie-shaped" dial that has come to be one of the most loved features of now vintage models. If you're a fan of the 'pie shape' like we are, you can find it today in the brand's Globemaster collection (see last year's model here), which debuted in 2015 – the same year fake Omega rolled out its METAS-certified Master Chronometer certification .
Over the years, the constellation has taken many forms, including angular cases that look nothing like the modern iteration of the collection. By the way, the Constellation we recognize today takes its cues from the 1982 models that marked the turning point of the collection's design with the four characteristic claws on the bezel, the monolink bracelet and the "crescent" faceted edges on the top and bottom of the barrel-shaped case. To say that this year's new Constellation Gent collection long overdue is probably an understatement. The last time we saw a Constellation for men was over a decade ago, with the Constellation ’09 in 2009. Fittingly, the new collection and fifth-generation line comes in a set of 26 models, all upgraded with more refinement and sophistication. Note that the metal bracelets are equipped with new mid-bar links and a comfort-release function.
At 39mm, this would make the new collection the largest Constellation model in Omega's stable. But since the Constellation is a dress collection, it would make sense to keep the watches under 40mm, so we think (and hope!) that this should be the biggest it would ever get. Any larger omega replica and you'd be in the sports watch category with Speedys and Seamasters.The watch is powered by Omega's ultra-reliable Caliber 8800 (or Caliber 8801, with Sedna gold components), the Co-Axial Master Chronometer that powers a myriad of the brand's replica watches. Antimagnetic up to 15,000 gauss, the self-winding movement offers 55 hours of power reserve and, like all Omega watches purchased on or after July 1, 2018, is covered by a five-year warranty.
