Omega Constellation Pluma

Omega Constellation Pluma

Following its 2014 launch, the evocative Constellation Pluma has been unveiled with a newly designed mother-of-pearl dial. The Constellation family has long been admired for its elegant yet understated design, and last year Omega unveiled its collection of Constellation Pluma timepieces characterised by unique designs engraved on their mother-of-pearl dials.
 
This year, the company has unveiled an evocative interpretation of the Constellation Pluma with a light, coral-coloured dial reminiscent of the warm sunshine on a summer day. Similar to its sisters, this 27-mm timepiece is decorated with 11 diamond indexes in 18-karat gold holders, and bears a soft-wavy pattern that flows between the iconic claws of the bezel.
 
Polished and facetted central hour, minute and seconds hands are crafted from 18-karat gold and coated with white Super-LumiNova, so that the time can be read in a variety of lighting conditions.
 

Omega Globemaster 
Omega Globemaster

Created in the true spirit of Omega, the Globemaster houses the brand’s most advanced mechanical movement, and features a design inspired by early Constellation models that represent horologic expertise and Omega’s legacy of precision and outstanding performance. Each watch is certified through a series of independent tests; a revolutionary process that establishes a new quality standard in the industry.
 
Two design features that define the Globemaster are its dial – created in a style that watch collectors have long referred to as the pie pan – and the fluted bezel, an element that has decorated several famous Constellation watches.
 
Omega’s history has also influenced the Globemaster’s case back. Representing the precision awards that the watchmaker received for the outstanding performance of its movements during the famous chronometer observatory trials in the 1940s and 50s is a medallion stamped with an image of the cupola of an observatory, where the precision competitions took place.
