At this writing, we are at the cusp of September 1, when a certain famed brand is ushering in some new models that luxury watch fans have waited for all year. However, other just-as-popular brands have already started to bring in some incredible new pieces – not the least of which is a stunning new revamp for the classic Omega Constellation. It is such a remarkable beefing up of a venerable product that we’d be surprised if these new 41mm “Connies” don’t push the Seamaster and Speedmaster for attention from ardent Omega admirers.
These new 41mm Constellation models (they hit stores in July) are, in a word, dazzling. They’ve kept the famous design details such as the half-moon facets and the “claws” on the sides of the dial, but now, added attractions include models in 18K gold or stainless steel (or both!), and an array of polished ceramic bezels that somehow, some way, make these new winners seem both like dress and sports watches at the same time.
That’s not all: When many collectors think of the Constellation, they remember the unique stainless steel bracelets – but many of these watches will be available with original, new leather straps with a unique anti-bacterial rubber lining. And, of course, the Omega quality we’ve all come to expect: Calibre 8900 or 8901 automatic movements, front and back sapphire, and, yes, they’re Master Chronometers.
