With 101 new Omega Constellation Manhattan ladies’ models being presented this year, there are a lot of details to explore and discover. While the iconic Constellation design has been retained, the collection has received a full makeover with subtle changes found in every angle.
The new matte-finish Constellation is embellished by polished bevelled edges along the case and bracelet. These refined edges help the models to appear slimmer and more feminine, while also giving a new sense of elegance and finesse. Furthermore, they help to reinforce the bracelet-watch design, which is quite unique in the watch industry.
New slender bezels have been created for each watch, seemingly providing a wider view of the dial. As well as having a finer design, the bezels include thinner Roman numerals, which are all now in the upright reading position. In proportion to the new bezels, the famous Constellation claws have been given a slimmer look and an improved integration.
The exquisite detail of the crown shows just how far Omega has gone to transform the Constellation design. Look closely and you’ll see that the teeth of the crown have been given a feminine half-moon shape, following the iconic half-moon facets of the case.
On the dial, Omega has brought more subtle change. The hands have been given a slimline update in the shape of a skeletonised leaf, specifi cally for these ladies’ models, while the new indexes are inspired by the Manhattan skyline, most notably the triangular facets of the Freedom Tower.
On the 29 mm models, the slim design is achieved by the use of domed sapphire crystal on the caseback, which absorbs the thickness of the movement’s self-winding system. For the 25 mm and 28 mm models, the famous observatory medallion is used. Each of the new 29 mm Constellation models is certified at the Master Chronometer standard. This means an ultimate level of precision, performance and magnetic resistance that is quite unrivalled within the industry.
