In the beginning of the year Omega introduced the fifth generation of the Constellation Gents’ collection. They now follow-up their initial 39mm run with eight new models in slightly larger 41mm cases with diversely colored dials.
Despite maintaining many of the design traits that have characterized this collection since 1952. The true novelty resides in the overall bolder look with vibrantly colored dials, as well as some mineral themes.
The 41mm case is available in either: stainless-steel, 18k Sedna™ gold, or a combination of both on two-tone options. While on the flip-side we encounter a sapphire exhibition case back, which allows to view the inner workings of the mechanical movement.
Mounted to these watches are polished ceramic bezels with their characteristic Roman numerals, produced in either Omega Ceragold or Liquidmetal. Except for a grey dial model that’s been given a stainless-steel bezel, for an overall monochromatic look.
It comes equipped with a screw-in setting crown, engraved with the Omega logo. All topped by a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both side. Water resistance on this watch can reach up to 50 meters (167 feet).
In common this new collection exhibits time with rhodium-plated or 18k Sedna™ gold facetted index markers, plus a matching alloy OMEGA logo, the iconic Constellation star, and central hour/minute hands that have been fitted with a luminescent filling, for enhanced legibility. There is also a date aperture at the 6 o’clock position.
In particular these watches have varied colored dials and combinations of steel and gold, which imbue each of them with their own unique aesthetics. The various color options include: a blue and black option with a sunburst finish; or a grey textured dial that gives off a mineral perception.
