Every constellation in the universe has its brightest stars, and in OMEGA’s Constellation line, nothing glitters more brilliantly than the opulent watches in the Luxury Edition. The Luxury Edition has been created with a strong and vivid visual identity – the dials display a dramatic supernova structure which emanates boldly from the Constellation star at 6 o’clock.
The OMEGA Constellation Luxury Edition watches shimmer with round diamonds whose seemingly random distribution in an intriguing “snow setting” elegantly respects the geometry of each jewelled component of every watch.
|Constellation Luxury Edition ‘Concept B’ Fully snow set with diamonds|
The watches in the Edition have identical dials; there are however three distinct configurations of diamonds on their bracelets and cases. Each of these is offered in a choice of 24 mm and 27 mm case sizes fitted with the quartz calibre 1376 or a 31 mm case equipped with the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8421.
The most spectacular of the models in the Constellation Luxury Edition glistens with thousands of diamonds in its snow setting.These jewelled masterpieces, with their 24, 27 and 31 mm cases, dazzle with 7.60, 8.84 and 9.06 carats respectively. The diamonds pave the entire surface of each part of the watch: the dial, the case, the bezel, the claws, the crown and the bracelet.
|Constellation Luxury Edition ‘Concept C’ Supernova snow set with diamonds|
The second Luxury Edition model has a bracelet which is partially set in round diamonds. Their lines extend organically from the supernova pattern on the dial and create a sense of motion leading beyond the dial and case to the bracelet. Also available in 24, 27 and 31 mm versions, they have 2.08, 2.83 and 3.59 carats of diamonds respectively.
|Constellation Luxury Edition ‘Concept D’ Bezel & Clows snow set with diamonds|
The third version is configured with the same snow-set round diamonds on its dial, bezel, claws and crown but is presented on an elegantly understated bracelet in either 18 Ct red gold or 18 Ct white gold.
The Constellation Luxury Edition watches feature a world premiere. On the bracelet’s distinctive butterfly clasp is a unique diamond – a black OMEGA logo has been engraved in the stone using a multiple-staged process involving laser-engraving. The result is a perfectly shaped mark engraved forever in the diamond.
The launch of OMEGA’s 2009 re-design of its entire Constellation line is one of the most eagerly-anticipated events in the watchmaker’s long history. The Constellation Luxury Edition was created to express the values of the new line in the most glamorous terms imaginable. The uncompromising luxury delivered in the Edition is represented by one of the most elegant wristwatch collections released in OMEGA’s 161-year history.
