Omega Constellation watches get the star treatment

Four new Omega Constellation models bear dials made of meteorites that date back billions of years

Probably best known for the Speedmaster ‘Moonwatch’—the first watch ever to be worn on the moon in 1969—Omega now brings the wonders of space itself onto your wrist with its latest Constellation models.

A staple in Omega’s repertoire since 1952, the Constellation was named for the brand’s star-studded awards in chronometry competitions. One of the most varied collections in the line-up, the Constellation has taken on numerous forms over the years, spanning Art Deco-inspired designs in the 1960s, to tech-y quartz-powered iterations in the 1970s, to the regal and sophisticated creations of today.

Taking its moniker seriously, this latest quartet of Constellation offerings literally invite you to gaze upon the stars. Available in a variety of sizes and styles, the watches sport mesmerising meteorite dials that not only look stunning, but evoke images of the celestial stones hurtling through space and shaped by time to eventually find their way onto our wrists.

For this selection of Constellation models, Omega works with the Muonionalusta meteorite, possibly the oldest known meteorite on earth estimated to be over 4.5 billion years old. The meteorite is sliced and colour-treated, making each individual piece of dial unique with its own texture and pattern.

There are 20 models to choose from—five for men and the rest for ladies. The top-drawer options are the 41mm and 29mm variants, which are driven by Co-Axial Master Chronometer movements that guarantee optimum robustness, precision, and anti-magnetism to over 15,000 gauss. The 28mm and 25mm models, while dainty, brim with presence and prestige, especially the bi-coloured versions in steel and Omega’s proprietary Sedna gold. In any case, these Constellation models are bound to leave you absolutely star-struck.
