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 126.96.36.199.03.001 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.
