Launched in 2007, these 18-carat red gold and diamond chronographs are a stunning interpretation of the watch which OMEGA has chosen to be associated with the noble sport of golf. Brought to life with the sparkle of diamonds and the warmth of a rich chocolate brown dial, these jewellery editions of this sporting favourite and design classic bring glamour, style and mechanical excellence to the green.
True to its family heritage, the Double Eagle Co-Axial Jewellery Chronographs display the iconic “claws” or “griffes” of the Constellation Line that were first introduced in 1982. On the men’s chronograph (41 mm case), the distinctive design is enhanced by the presence of 22 baguette-cut diamonds that total approximately 3.90 carats. Even the “claws” are adorned with 34 baguette-cut diamonds. Similarly, the bezel and ‘claws’ of the women’s model (in a 35 mm case) are set with 96 diamonds (1.56 carats) and the crown is enhanced with a briolette diamond (0.20 carat).
In both models, the highly original dial has a brown PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) treatment that radiates in a sun-brushed pattern from the 9 o’clock position on the face and provides a bold backdrop for the 12-hour and 30-minute sub dials. In the women’s chronograph, these sub dials are fashioned out of pink-brown mother-of-pearl. A third sub-dial, a discreet small seconds counter, is found at 9 o’clock and a date window has been placed between 4 and 5 o’clock.
The 18-carat red gold hour markers, the OMEGA logo and hallmark Constellation Star have all been diamond polished for additional depth and dimension. The Dauphine style hands are facetted and diamond polished, truncated and perfectly visible in the dark thanks to Super-LumiNova inserts. For optimum daytime readings, even in the most compromising light conditions, the gently domed scratchproof sapphire crystal protecting the dial has been given an anti-reflective treatment on both sides.
OMEGA’s exclusive Calibre 3313 powers both Constellation Double Eagle Co-Axial Jewellery Chronographs. At the heart of this self-winding movement is OMEGA’s revolutionary and proprietary Co-Axial escapement technology that considerably reduces friction in the escapement and offers improved long-term reliability and accuracy of this COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres) certified column-wheel chronograph. As a prestige mechanism, the OMEGA Calibre 3313 has a luxury finish with circular graining, Geneva wave decoration, rhodium plated surfaces and gold-plated engravings. Water resistant to 100 metres/330 feet, the watch has a power reserve of 52 hours.
The polished 18-carat red gold screw-in case back surrounds a sapphire crystal and the men’s model is engraved with the limited edition number of the piece. Both watches have been fitted with a brown rubber strap fully integrated into the case and fixed with 18-carat red gold screws. This highly fluid and ergonomic bracelet has a grooved underside for additional comfort adapted for playing golf. It securely fastens to the wrist with an 18-carat red gold-brushed fold over clasp decorated with a polished OMEGA logo.
