OMEGA – The Constellation “OMEGA 160 Years” – Ladies’ Small (25.50 mm)& Mini(22.50 mm) Versions and Gent’s 35.50 mm Version

Since its establishment in 1848, Swiss watch maker OMEGA has long been synonymous with precise time measurement, having set officially-certified precision records for well over a century. In 2008, the brand celebrated its 160th anniversary.

The wristwatches in OMEGA’s Constellation line are among the most recognisable and popular in the world. To celebrate the 160th anniversary, OMEGA launched diamond-studded special Constellations in three sizes: the Gents’ model measuring 35.5 mm and two Ladies’ models of 25.5 mm and 22.5 mm.

The Constellation “OMEGA 160 Years”- Ladies
The “small” (25.50 mm) and “mini” (22.50 mm) versions of the elegant Constellation “OMEGA 160 Years” Ladies’ models have brushed cases and the characteristic Constellation claws in 18-Ct red or yellow gold, in bi-colour versions (stainless steel with either 18-Ct red or yellow gold), or in stainless steel.

The clasped caseback is engraved “160 Years” and features Constellation’s famous Observatory medallion. The bezels of the 25.50 mm and the 22.50 mm versions are paved with 38 and 30 diamonds respectively. At the heart of the Constellation “OMEGA 160 Years” Ladies’ is the OMEGA Calibre 1456, a quartz movement with a battery life of 32 months.

The dials, in white mother-of pearl or in champagne, have an alluring Supernova pattern emanating from the Constellation star. They feature 12 stunning diamond hour markers with an applied star and OMEGA logo. Their domed, scratch resistant sapphire crystals have anti-reflective treatment.
