Omega Replica launched the 39 mm men’s watch earlier this year. Now, this Swiss brand completes the contemporary Constellation series with a slightly larger 41 mm timepiece series and enhances its function with a polished ceramic bezel.
Omega Constellation Gents’ new replica watch case is made of stainless steel, 18k Sedna gold or gold, or a combination of the two to represent the latest development of the Constellation wearable watch, which debuted in 1952 and used a “pan” dial .
The new Constellation Gents have polished and beveled edges along the case and bracelet. Slim bezels with redesigned Roman numerals; claws with slimmer outlines and more elegant finishes; reshaped conical crowns; Omega Replica Watches says the redesigned slim hands and hour markers are visually affected by the Freedom Tower in New York City Inspired by the triangular facets.
Inside the case is the Fake Omega Watch, which not only meets the official observatory standard of the Swiss testing agency COSC, but also meets the eight standards proposed by Omega’s own certification, including the ability to withstand the magnetic field of 15,000 Gauss level.
On the dial of the Omega Replica watch, we find applied, trapezoidal indices for the hour markers, with small, printed marks in between each for the minutes. Toward the bottom of the face, the trapezoidal shape is also used for a beveled date window at 6 o’clock, while an applied Omega logo rests at the 12 o’clock position with “Constellation” script just below it.
At the center are two alpha-shaped hands for the hour and minute and a simple pointer for the seconds, while just below the hands’ axis are the Replica “Co-Axial Chronometer” designation for the watch’s movement and a small applied star, which is subtle nod to the watch’s galactic name.
The steel and two-tone models use the Caliber 8800, while the all-gold models opt for the Caliber 8801, the only difference being that the 8801 features a matching gold rotor compared to the steel one used on the 8800.
The latest iteration of theOmega Constellation Replica brings the series into the modern age, boasting a somewhat sportier look than that of its predecessors in the historic collection, which have more often opted towards a more delicate and formal style. Among the modern updates, we see the larger case diameter and thickness, which gives the watch a more durable look.
To place the Constellation collection further in context, the series is the brand’s second-oldest continuously produced collection, after the Seamaster which first launched in 1948, and a full five years older than the Speedmaster, which launched in 1957. While the collection both today and historically has often been overshadowed by these two iconic series and their many different iterations, theOmega Replica nonetheless still maintains an important part in the brand’s modern portfolio, balancing dressy and sporty elements for a watch that is distinctive, both for Omega and in the wider market.
The new Replica Constellation 39mm Gents’ collection looks more mature, compared to its predecessors. The diversity of dials also makes it interesting.
Omega did not just send me any Constellation 39mm, but one in 18-karat Sedna gold. This is Omega Replica own rose gold alloy and it, of course, has a softer tone to it than yellow gold. This particular Omega Constellation reference 188.8.131.52.03.001 comes on an alligator strap with 18-karat Sedna gold folding clasp.
The first because of the typical shape of the case, with its half-moons and the claws on the bezel. While the claws had the function of pressing on the crystal on the first generation, it later became merely a design feature as the bezel wasn’t covered anymore by the sapphire crystal. And it makes me think of my C-shaped Omega Constellation Fake Watch, because of the silk dial. This dial is not only available in the Sedna gold models, but also for the stainless steel and bicolor variations.
The Omega Constellation 39mm Replica Watch has little to do with these vintage models. It is a modern watch, both from a production perspective as well as from a design perspective. It features the latest generation of Omega’s in-house movements.
The very first Copy Omega Constellation Manhattan measured just 6.5mm in thick. Since then, they’ve only become thicker. The Constellation is not really considered a dress watch, so it doesn’t need to be ultra-thin, but it also shouldn’t have the thickness of a sports watch.
