In 1982, Omega released a new watch, showing avant-garde and timeless design concept, this is the Constellation Manhattan Watch. The ‘claw’ design known today is one of the most recognizable watches in the world. This unique design not only enhanced the extraordinary beauty of the watch’s appearance, but also reflected the extremely high functionality in that era: the claws firmly fixed the sapphire crystal glass and washer on the case, thereby ensuring the watch’s Waterproof properties.
The earliest ‘claw support’ design introduced for functional considerations has played an important role in the widespread popularity of constellation watches with its distinctive style, and its significance exceeds people’s imagination-‘claw support’ has become the definition The logo of this watch series.
Nearly unlimited options
The release scale of the new constellation series is unprecedented. Functionality and design are further enhanced, and dials and diamonds offer more options. This new watch series is bound to attract a wider target group-everyone can find at least one new constellation watch suitable for their own wear.
Like all constellation watches, the new constellation watches are both stylish and elegant. The newly designed constellation series is available in five sizes: diameter 24mm, 27mm, 31mm, 35mm and 38mm.
The dials of the new Constellation watches are available in a variety of colors, including silver, champagne, brown and black. Other models are very eye-catching with a white mother-of-pearl dial. Some of these dials are decorated with a pattern of rays radiating from the position of the star emblem. The triangular arched hands are either rhodium-plated or 18K red gold or yellow gold with a luminous coating.
Famous claws still appear on every constellation watch, but their design is subtly refined and upgraded. The bracelet still has the familiar horizontal links, but this new ‘MonoRang’ bracelet with butterfly buckle has been redesigned to further improve wearing comfort.
Coaxial technology-the core power of the new constellation
All mechanical models of the new Constellation series will be equipped with Omega’s pioneering coaxial escapement. In simple terms, the escapement is the heart of a mechanical watch, which allows the watch’s adjustment device, the balance wheel, to continue to swing. Omega’s coaxial escapement, released in 1999, is the first practical new escapement in more than two centuries. It reduces the friction between the components that transfer energy to other components, basically eliminates the need for maintenance of the movement, and most importantly, ensures that the accuracy of the watch remains extremely stable for a long time.
The 38mm model is equipped with an Omega 8500/8501 coaxial movement. This Omega in-house movement represents a revolutionary breakthrough in the field of mechanical watchmaking. Each of the 202 parts has been developed by Omega since its inception.
The 31 mm model is equipped with an Omega 8520/8521 coaxial movement designed for smaller watches. This model movement is equipped with a ‘Si14’ silicon balance spring, which can be largely protected from impact and other external factors, thus ensuring the stability of the Constellation watch.
The 35mm model is equipped with a 2500 coaxial movement, which is exactly this classic movement that announced the launch of the coaxial escapement device. Smaller models are equipped with a reliable and precise Omega 1376 quartz movement. The 35mm model is also available with an Omega 1532 quartz movement.
