In 2005, Omega added two new models in the Quadrella collection, which was first launched at Baselworld 2004.
The watch’s name alludes to both its shape and the four diamond-set “claws” on the case. The Quadrella is a Constellation at heart, as is evidenced by the four claws on the case, each set with 6 diamonds on the front and side (total 48 diamonds, 0.30 ct); the two half-moon facets on the case that provide an elegant transition from the watch case to the integrated polished bracelet; and finally the use of Roman numerals, which are applied at the quarter hour positions in two different sizes, the larger ones at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock and the smaller ones at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock.
The look is completed by an applied Omega symbol at 12 o’clock and Constellation star at 6 o’clock, as well as matching red gold-plated feuille hands. The watch’s domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal follows the same rounded contours as the case and is coated with an anti-reflective treatment on the inside. Like all Omega watches, the Quadrella benefits from a robust construction and high-quality standards that guarantee water resistance to 30 metres.
The all-gold model has a distinct touch of luxury with its polished 18-carat red gold case and bracelet, red-gold diamond-set claws and matching gold-coloured accents on the dial. For its part, the two-tone model sets its own luxury accents in the form of red-gold diamond-set claws contrasting with the polished stainless-steel case, red gold-plated hands set against the white dial with applied red gold-coloured Roman numerals. The two-tone look is completed by polished 18-carat red gold “full bars” on the bracelet.
These Quadrella models come with a choice of white or black mother-of-pearl dials and diamonds or a white mother-of-pearl dial with coloured precious stones. All Quadrella models are powered by the precision Omega quartz calibre 1376, which has a battery lifetime of 32 months.
