Omega is responsible for the design and creation of outstanding timepieces known for their accuracy. Their popularity has stood the test of time with interest by collectors of vintage Omega watches at an all-time high. The Omega brand was the first to design a watch for divers. It is a recognized world leader in timekeeping for sports events, and it has the distinction of being the chosen timepiece for six lunar landings, including the first landing on the moon in 1969.
Timepieces in the Omega Constellation collection include the Omega Co-Axial 35 mm, Omega Co-Axial Day-Date 38 mm, Omega Co-Axial 31 mm, Omega Co-Axial 38 mm, Quartz 27 mm, Quartz 24 mm, Co-Axial Small Seconds 35 mm, Quartz 35 mm and the Co-Axial Chronograph. The company also offers one of its newest timepieces, the Omega Constellation Star, available with a distinctive blue dial, 18k white gold stars and a stainless steel case with cut diamonds surrounding the bezel. This Omega Constellation timepiece is in support of ORBIS International and the Flying Eye Hospital.
The Omega Constellation collection for men is a dynamic series of watches based on the classic design, and it has been enhanced with precision features. Each Omega Constellation watch has the signature "star" located at the 6 o'clock position and features the "griffes" - also referred to as claws. The gentlemen's Omega Constellation models are available in a wide range of dials, movement configurations and case metals. They are available with 18k yellow or red gold, bi-colored pieces of yellow and red gold and full-cut diamonds. Bracelets are of metal and feature polished bars set between brushed links. Omega Constellation watches are powered by different Co-Axial calibers depending on the model. The Omega Constellation Gents' Day-Date timepiece, for example, displays a date window at the 6 o'clock position and the day of the week at the 12 o'clock position.
Sophisticated, elegant and sporty are words that describe the ladies collection of Omega Constellation watches. The timepieces, originally designed in 1982 and re-designed in 2009, feature extraordinary precision, sizes from small to extra-large, quartz or mechanical movement and diamond-encrusted models. The new features of the Omega Constellation pieces include a variety of choices in the dial, including white mother-of-pearl, champagne, brown or black. Each dial on the Omega Constellation is meticulously finished with a delicate shell motif emanating from the star icon or a soft-brushed finish. The Omega Constellation pieces are available with a quartz movement or Omega's Co-Axial calibers. Metals for cases and bracelets include 18k yellow or red gold and stainless steel. The Co-Axial 31 mm and 35 mm also feature the date at the 3 o'clock position.
The Omega Constellation is for people of action like the soldiers and pilots of World War One, Pierce Brosnan, Daniel Craig, Elvis Presley, Buzz Aldrin, Mikhail Gorbachev, Sergio Garcia and Prince William. Since 1932, the official timepieces for the Olympic Games have been Omega timepieces.
