Omega New Constellation collection
Omega presents no less than 101 new models.
The Constellation collection has long been Omega’s symbol of precision in watchmaking. With a name inspired by the stars above us, it has sought to redefine the standards by which we measure time and has always done so with elegance and class.
This year, the Constellation takes its next step in design and technology. With 101 new Constellation ladies’ models being presented this year, there are a lot of details to explore and discover. While the iconic Constellation design has been retained, the collection has received a full makeover with subtle changes found in every angle.
Yet for this entire new line, it is the outward craftsmanship that truly stands out. The refined makeover has touched upon almost every part of the iconic design, while still keeping the central “Manhattan” look that has been a firm favourite for more than 36 years.

The Omega Constellation 2018 collection comes in three sizes - 25 mm, 28 mm and 29 mm. The Omega Calibre 4061 powers the first two models, while the 29 mm versions house the Omega Master Chronometer Calibre 8700/8701, assured by the 8 strict tests that every Master Chronometer certified watch faces before it leaves the factory.
The watches are available in 18K Sedna™ gold, 18K yellow gold, stainless steel or two-tone versions. The new dials offer a choice of sun-brushed blue, chestnut brown, dark grey and gold champagne colours, silk-embossed silvery or gold champagne, and crystal silvery.
The changes include a new matte-finish embellished by polished bevelled edges along the case and bracelet; new slender bezels including thinner Roman numerals, which are all now in the upright reading position; new Constellation claws that have been given a slimmer look and an improved integration and have polished bevels; a new crown whose teeth have been given a feminine half-moon shape, following the iconic half-moon facets of the case; new slimmer hands in the shape of a skeletonised leaf, and indexes that are inspired by the Manhattan skyline.
Two different bracelet styles can be found within the collection. The quartz models have a similar bracelet to the Constellation ’09, whereas the 29 mm Master Chronometer models have been given a more luxurious version. The new bracelet is inspired by those of the original Constellation “Manhattan” collection, featuring polished “mid-bar” links. Now featuring domed covers with the Omega name and symbol, the bracelet clasps have been given polished half-moons and a comfort release adjustment, which allows the wearer to extend an extra 2 mm of comfort when required.
On the 29 mm models, the slim design is achieved by the use of domed sapphire crystal on the caseback, which absorbs the thickness of the movement’s self-winding system. For the 25 mm and 28 mm models, the famous observatory medallion is used.
