Baselworld 2016: CONSTELLATION MASTER CHRONOMETER SMALL SECONDS

Baselworld 2016: CONSTELLATION MASTER CHRONOMETER SMALL SECONDS

Continuing the modern reinterpretation of the iconic Constellation, OMEGA has this year furthered the innovation of this timepiece with a new small seconds feature as well as Master Chronometer status.

It is this Master Chronometer certification that sets the watch apart. Introduced among the first ladies’ timepieces to reach the new standard, this Constellation model stands at the forefront of OMEGA’s new era of excellence. For such a refined and compact movement, this is a major achievement for the brand.

The Constellation has often set the benchmark in watchmaking precision, so it makes perfect sense that it should again be leading the way. As a Master Chronometer, this watch has passed the eight intensive tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), giving the wearer full confidence in terms of accuracy and performance.

In design, it is clear that OMEGA has retained many of the popular attributes of recent Constellation models. The combination of stainless steel and 18K red gold delivers a warm aesthetic style, while the gentle, white pearled mother-of-pearl dial adds to the simple and elegant effect. Other stunning additions include the diamond-paved bezel and sapphire crystal caseback that enables viewing of the new Master Chronometer calibre 8704.

Finally, the new charm of this Constellation lies in the small seconds feature that has been placed at 9 o’clock. With four diamond markers, the subtle inclusion offers a unique extension to the collection. To offer balance in this new style, OMEGA has also moved the date window to 6 o’clock.

Once again, the Constellation delivers on elegance – as well as inspirational craftsmanship that sets a higher standard.
