There are 26 new models to choose from in the diverse selection, all sized at 39mm. Crafted from the most exquisite materials, such as 18K yellow gold, 18K Sedna™ gold and stainless steel, they all exude a refined sense of luxury and elegance. Following a similar makeover for its Constellation ladies’ models in 2018, all of the gents’ models have been given significant updates. These include polished and bevelled edges along the case, claws and bracelet, slimmer bezels with redesigned Roman numerals, slimmer claws, a conical crown, redesigned hands and hour-markers, which have taken inspiration from the triangular facets of the Freedom Tower in New York and metal bracelets with new mid-bar links and a comfort-release function, or leather straps in various colours.
Finally, all of the 39mm models in the Constellation Gents’ collection have been upgraded to Master Chronometer status – achieving the Swiss industry’s highest certification for precision, performance and magnetic resistance. Although the OMEGA Constellation line was first launched in 1952, it was the models released in 1982 that first introduced the familiar look that we recognise today. Most notably, the features of those 1982 models included the four “claws” on the side of the case, the barrel-shaped case with its half-moon facets at the top and bottom, the mono-link bracelet and also the perfectly circular dial and indexes on the bezel.
